"I wish I liked kale; brownies just taste so much better."
"I know I should exercise; I just can't force myself to go to the gym."
These common sentiments are ones I hear from clients when they begin working on shifting their compass to a healthier setting.
Instead of simply focusing on how-to's of weight loss and better self care, we dig deeper to develop a vision of a healthier self and explore their individual values and personal reasons for wanting to make changes.
When a person connects to the things they value in life and their deep reasons for wanting to shift their health habits, change become easier and infinitely more sustainable. The momentum to overcome becomes smaller. The gap between knowing and doing narrows.
I call it "WhyPower" (not willpower) and it fuels the change process. It becomes like rocket fuel.
When you find your WhyPower, choices such as kale over brownies and being active vs. leading a sedentary life become a part of who you are.
