Today, I want to discuss health plans with you. And no, I’m not talking about your insurance health plan here. I’m talking about a real, legitimate plan of action for your individual health. Do you currently have a plan that you’re following this year to be healthy? For most people the answer is no. The good news is, it’s not your fault. As Americans, we’re trained to put more thought into planning a vacation than into planning our own health. We make plans for where we’re traveling, who we’re traveling with, what our budget will be, what we want to see, what we want to do, etc.. Usually, this is all planned out well in advance.
Imagine the potential if we put that same intention into our own health. We would be way ahead of the curve, when it comes to true health. I know getting started can seem overwhelming and frustrating. Well here’s the good news, we’re going to show you the exact steps you can take to get started on the right path.
The first and most important step in getting started with a health plan is, as Steven Covey author of The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People suggests, to “begin with the end in mind.” This is absolutely critical. In order to get started on a health plan, you need to have an end goal in mind. Whether that may be to think clearer, feel younger, have more energy, eliminate pain issues, reduce the effects of aging, or simply improve the overall function of your body, a clear and definitive end goal is a must.
Once you have your target set, write it down. The act of simply writing down your goal, takes it out of your mind and makes it tangible and real. You can touch it, you can see it, and you’re one step closer to realizing it. This step will help you enforce a stronger focus on the outcome. Allowing you to get the wheels turning to figure out the smaller details and steps you will take to accomplish your goal. Once you have the main goal set, you can start to work out the details by setting your monthly, weekly, and daily rituals. As you work on the outcome, you will begin to develop habits that will make your goals easier to obtain.
You have the power to leave health to choice just by following a simple plan and committing to it. Don’t leave your health to chance. Be proactive and make 2017 your healthiest year yet!
