As we enter spring, a season of renewal is shining on us just as the warm sun awakens our beautiful city.
It feels good to think about a new season.
Even searches for "future" and "future self" are up over 200%.
We are ready for a fresh start.
But that doesn't mean we've actually made any promises of renewal to ourselves.
Someone asked me this week, "What are your fitness goals for this year?"
And I realized had not even thought about it for a whole year.
Survival is not well synced for renewal.
But we have always have a chance to change-- change our meals, our mindset and our metabolism.
How do you envision a healthier future? It starts with reprograming your thoughts.
Mindset shifts are key to keep our primitive brain from fighting change with survival strategies.
Here's a simple way you can envision a healthier future this spring: Make yourself a promise you can keep.
A few promises to try:
"I promise that I will renew my body with more joyful movement"
"I promise I will enjoy plants because they renew my energy"
"I promise I will create simple meal rhythms that renew my health"
or, perhaps my favorite: "I promise I will double my greens to renew my health"
I can't change the stress we all feel as we come to the edges of our energy, from the untold mental strain or the loneliness, but I believe we all have a chance for personal renewal this spring, towards a healthier, happier future.
To your future healthier self,
