Start a New Routine


Planning and starting a new routine can seem daunting. This is true whether it’s a new fitness routine, diet or any new wellness change we want to make. We are creatures of habit and changing our set habits cause us stress and anxiety. We automatically start doubting ourselves and let fear take over. It’s important to remember that even small changes can show improved results. Simple changes can lead to lifelong benefits.

Creating a new routine allows us to grow as a person. All too often we become stuck and comfortable in our daily life. We feel we aren’t growing or making any progress towards our goals. We can combat that by adopting new routines such as a new exercise class or program, a new morning ritual or even attempting to cook new foods. When creating new routines in areas of wellness this allows us to be healthier.

I have recently designed a fitness routine for myself that incorporates many exercises I enjoy. Over the next couple months however I plan to add more new workouts in that will force me to push myself and get out of my comfort zone. I know this will make me stronger and test my abilities. If I  stick with only the same routines I will become complacent and I worry this will extend to other areas of my life as well.

I challenge you to create a new habit or routine to attempt this week. Try a new workout, add a new food in at meal time, change your work commute, take the stairs, cook for a change. Try to push yourself to grow, even if its a small step. After all, small steps can lead to big success.

Wellness Wednesday,

Tell it to Your Journal

Writing in my journal has been a habit for me off and on since I was in high school. I don’t have any set routine around it and sometimes I’m not very consistent. I can go months without journaling only to pick it back up when reading a certain spiritual book, working on trauma healing, I need to work something out, or it’s a new moon ritual.

As a writer, speaker, educator and coach my goal is to help guide people on their own journey to making a wellness lifestyle work for them.

My holistic approach teaches that it’s not just about the nutrition we put into our bodies or our fitness routine, we also need to take care of our own well-being as well.In order to truly live a healthier life we need to realize this is a shift and change in our whole lifestyle and we must cultivate this lifestyle every day.

I’ve learned that getting to this point is not easy and that’s why I’ve made it my mission to help others achieve this healthy and balanced lifestyle for themselves.

It’s not about being on a diet or trying the latest workout trend.

This is about changing your life forever.
