Salarah Starre Shares Some Tips on Making New Life Changing Goals Happen

When it comes to keeping fit, you may find yourself with an underlying feeling of pressure because you have the constant nagging feeling that you should do more to look after yourself. Of course, it doesn’t help that we are bombarded with images of healthy-looking men and women across social media and are left feeling inadequate in one way or another, because we believe we must attain the same.

You may have an endless list that hangs over your head about all the things that you have to do from the everyday stuff that consumes most of your time to the pressure to look and feel good. How on earth can you find time for everything when life is already super busy? Like me, you may have experienced phases in the past when you got yourself into a nice routine. Everything seemed to flow; you looked good and felt good but then something happened. Some kind of life event occurs or your routine changes and everything goes to pot. You soon find yourself back in the same position as you were months earlier.

You may ask yourself how on earth do people manage to take control of their mindset whilst living in a world that is rigged to rob us of our time and energy, leaving little leftover for anything else. You know in your heart of hearts that if you don’t get this sorted out you’ll have that constant feeling hanging over your head of inadequacy. You’ll end up keeping yourself busy doing so many things that mean you can’t achieve what is important to you and at the end of the day feel like you have not accomplished anything.

It may be helpful to ask yourself “if I don’t take time to look after my mental and physical well-being, what would my life look like in the future?” And “what will happen to overall quality of my life if I don’t take time to look after my well-being?”

A bit like an airplane has an autopilot, so do we. We have a program running in our subconscious mind all of the time, which helps us function in the way we are currently living our lives. If we want to create a new program, which is more in alignment with the final destination we desire, we need to reprogram our auto pilot. But how do we do that?

Setting goals can be helpful in achieving the results you want. Having clear goals is like putting a postcode into a satellite navigation system, which guides you to where you want to go in the quickest and easiest way. Having no goals means you could potentially fumble your way through life and stay stuck in your current routine, doing the same old things day in and day out. You can’t get where you want to go unless you’re clear about where it is you want to be. When you have meaningful goals and clear steps to take, you can start to do the things that are necessary to accomplish them.

It is important to make sure that your goals are attainable and don’t leave you feeling a sense of failure for not having accomplished them. So, be honest with yourself and your routine and look at where you can comfortably begin to create space for looking after yourself in the way that you deserve. And it is okay to start small. This way, you build your confidence in yourself, begin to create a solid routine and go to bed at night feeling a sense of achievement, which in turn creates more motivation.

Fortunately, there are many other techniques available that can help you get on track and stay on track.

  1. Be clear on what your daily well-being goals are. Writing down your goals is a powerful declaration of intent. Write down a statement on what you are going to accomplish that day and have a plan of action when you are going to do it. Plan your day. Carve out time in your day that you will spend your time completing your intended tasks.
  2. Many people go through life doing what they think they should, must or have to do as opposed to what they want to do. It may be worth taking time to look at an exercise routine that suits you rather than one you feel you should do. The word should is probably one of the most damaging words in the English language. It implies that you were either wrong, are wrong or going to be wrong. That will not help your motivation and self-esteem. Before you’ve even start, your confidence is quashed, and you have a heavy feeling around the task you feel you ‘should’ do. Personally, I’m not keen on the gym at all, but I absolutely love exercise. Therefore, I have chosen an exercise routine that suits me and my lifestyle, which means I am able to be consistent, which in turn leaves me feeling good about myself.
  3. Reward yourself once you have completed your task. Give yourself a reward every time you achieve one of your goals. Spending time doing things you like such as listening to music, going for a walk, having a hot chocolate or a chat with a friend.

So before you drag yourself to the gym, feeling lacklustre – stop, take a breath and ask yourself – “What is it I want to achieve? What is my ultimate goal?”
