So apparently you can be fined
£2500 for not indicating when driving even if
No one else is on the road…
And it got me thinking how we almost drive on autopilot..
Unless of course, you see a police car..
And you hold the steering a bit tighter, straighten your back up and
lower your eye brows to demonstrate your intense concentration on the road…
But guess what?
30 seconds later
you’re slouched again, thinking about what you’re having for dinner
The Human League:
‘Don’t you Want Me baaaaaabbbbbbyyyy….don’t you want me ohhhhhh
’ at the top of your voice..
What’s this got to do with anything?
Glad you asked.
There’s a few things actually:
1 Most of us go about our day, week and month on autopilot
governed by habits that are so deeply rooted that
we can’t see that they are holding us back or how we can change them
2 Most people don’t get to where they want to because the don’t put their attention on it
(forgetting that where your attention goes, your energy goes)
Hear me out…
If you struggle with snacking, comfort eating, binge eating, or struggle for motivation…
I can almost guarantee that
You haven’t broken down your goals into
SMALL, daily tasks…
Why is this important?
Well, it eliminates OVERWHELM
Something that leads to you procrastinating
And wasting energy on staying the same / beating yourself up for all of the things you still haven’t done…
(even though you promised you would with the best intentions)
Which is exhausting …
More exhausting that doing the thing itself..
But instead of me breaking these tasks down for you
(as this has to fit your lifestyle and is why we have a one to one on our 4-Week Kickstart programme to set these daily habits for you)
I’m going to give you research backed hacks to help you break your ‘autopilot’
Basically, I’m the police car driving past you today to help you beat your old habits..
(so if you hear the sirens, you know who it is haha)
So, you ready?
Today, I want you to:
1 Keep a bottle / glass of water within arms reach all day
2 Only eat when you are sat down with no mobile phone / or any technology
3 Before you eat a snack / food between your meal, stare at it for 30 seconds and then decide whether you want to eat it
Try it today
See how you go
I can’t say it’ll work for you straight away..
But just like Rachel said:
“Suddenly, the simplest thing has clicked.
I just need to focus on the little things as they all add up to a bigger thing.
Being positive about my little wins makes the bigger task seem not so scary. “
It doesn’t have to be complicated.
After all, that’s essentially the ladies have done HERE starting on our
4-Week Kickstart Programmes in Marlborough and Burbage.
(which is opening up again next week)
