YOUR BRAIN IS HARDWIRED FOR THIS

Because your brain is hardwired to like new, fun, and different things.

When you try something new – or take up a new challenge – it fires up the “feel good” part of your brain.

This is a pretty nifty hack to keep your motivation levels high.

Here it is: factor “novelty” into your goal equation! 

When you do this, it can keep you moving forward and excited about continuing with your goals and healthy habits.

Here are a few ideas of what I’m talking about: 

  • Do a recipe challenge where you cook 2-3 new meals (from scratch) every week.
  • Learn to swim, golf, bodyboard, or how to play tennis
  • Be able to hold a plank for 2 minutes
  • Be able to do 10 full-body push-ups
  • Challenge yourself to one week without any added sugar
  • Do your first box jump
  • Meditating every day for one month and journal your progress
  • Set a daily activity goal for a week or month, and use your fitness tracker to chart your success
  • Go on an active date every week: bowling, indoor ice skating, geocaching, bowling, even ax throwing!
  • Take a cooking class

The list of ideas is endless! 

The whole point is to try NEW, FUN things that support a healthy lifestyle.

This is just one thing we work on with our clients – helping them create meaningful goals … and having fun making them a reality!

Committed to your success,

7 “Bonuses” of Junk Foods
