It is my intention to outline specific habits in this article that will empower and help assist you in your health transformation. Now after you identify these specific habits you must bring great effort to the equation.
It has been my experience that most people know what to do for their overall success though they choose to stay in their comfort zone and continue to be mediocre. Choose today to change your daily habits and disciplines and watch your entire existence transform.
So let’s get started. . .
This is the first habit you must embrace. Begin by thinking of the person you want to become. What does your body look like? What does your body feel like? See yourself being disciplined each day with these new found habits. Remember. . . everything starts in your mind. Get the picture you want for your life imprinted on your mind each day. Spend a few minutes each morning and evening visualizing your health and fitness goals and watch the transformation!
2. POSITIVE AFFIRMATIONS
The next habit is identifying specific affirmations that align with your vision. I am healthy! I am physically and mentally strong! I have world class health! Think about what you want your health and fitness to be and begin to create positive affirmations. These affirmations should be a constant companion with you throughout your day. This habit alone will change your entire mindset and your overall success.
3. SUBCONSCIOUS REPROGRAMMING
The next habit consists of reprogramming your subconscious mind. The reason you are experiencing your current lifestyle is because of what your subconscious believes. Now. . . you must remember you have the power to program your subconscious to believe whatever you want to see manifest in your life. If you are out of shape and unhealthy. . . this is because you believe the current picture. Change the picture of your life and you will begin to see meaningful change.
4. 10,000 STEPS
The 4th habit is. . . move your body. Visualizing and reciting positive affirmations is just part of the process. You must actually begin to move your body and the rest will take care of itself. This habit is pretty simple. . . begin to walk 10,000 steps each day. I didn’t say sprint or run 5 miles. . . just begin to track your steps and get 10,000 steps each day. This is an excellent habit to embrace and will most definitely assist your health transformation.
5. AB WHEEL
I was introduced to this piece of equipment during my short time as a fitness trainer. I remember I came into work one day and noticed a member on the floor out of breath and completely drenched in sweat. I asked him what he had been doing. . . squats, dead lifts, or major cardio. He did inform me that the exercise he had finished was definitely a cardio workout though it was also great for the abs and entire upper body. Get yourself an ab wheel and begin by doing a few repetitions each day. When you can knock out about 50 a day your stomach will be feeling great.
6. JUMPING ROPE
This is a great exercise to strengthen your legs, upper body and core. I would encourage you to set daily goals for rope jumping. Jumping rope for 15 or 20 minutes a day will do more for your overall fitness and health than most other cardio exercises. Do some honest work with a jump rope and get ready for increased strength and stamina.
7. WEIGHT TRAINING
I am definitely a proponent of weight training for overall strength and health. Weight training will build lean muscle and strengthen your skeletal system if you are consistent with this habit. I would start off with some basic movements to get your entire body involved and then progress as you become more comfortable with the program. Please don’t jump in with 400 pound squats and a 300 pound bench press. Take your time and gradually add weight to the bar. Shoot for 2 sets of 10 repetitions for each exercise.
