We are nearly one month into 2016 and what a month it has been. I am currently running two online group programs, have taken up from before Christmas with my one to one clients, have passed two Dutch tests so that I can directly progress from the basic Level (1.1) and jump to Level 2.1, have run a couple of workshops, taught yoga and presented a seminar, won a scholarship to participate in a program which will elevate my coaching and have started to implement various things to move my business forwards. I have big plans this year, it is going to be an exciting one so keep your eyes peeled open. However, with all the changes in the previous years and with all the goals I have for my business this year, I know that I have to make sure that I find a substantial amount of grounding in my personal life.
For me, this means ingraining quite a few of my healthy habits a bit deeper into my daily life to get the right balance between work and play.
As much as I have a very healthy lifestyle, it is not perfect even though that’s not what it looks like on the social media pictures (remember that they are there to inspire you, not to show you perfection). I also know that just having big goals does not amount to anything, unless we are putting tools into place that help us getting there. Otherwise we just get overwhelmed. Plus, we need self care structures built in in our days that support and nourish us so that we are physically and mentally prepared to move towards this big goal.
As a result, I will be stepping up my healthy habits in 2016. Specifically, I will …
- Make my regular meditation practice a daily practice. #366daysofmeditation
- Practice yoga asana (posture) daily, instead of 3-4 times per week. #366daysofyoga
- Have a green smoothie every day. #366greensmoothies
- Ensure that at least two of my main meals are clean, dairy and gluten-free in 2016.
- Learn to make gluten-free bread.
I am well on my way with all of these steps as I know actually doing them and them turning into a routine will take a while. I know, though, these steps will nourish and support me mentally and physically to make 2016 my best year yet! You can follow me on Instagram, Twitter or Facebook to keep up to date with it all. I usually post my green smoothies daily, meditation and yoga practices less so (simply because I still find it very difficult to share so much of my life and my meditation and yoga practice are a very private and personal part of me), so feel free to pop by and share with me what you are up to and what you have committed to do for your health!
