Little goals can feel not big enough when there’s so much pressure to GO HARD OR GO HOME in the fitness and wellness world. Exercise 7 days a week! Get up at 5am! Go vegan!
The powerful thing we’ve noticed about SMALL goals is they’re wonderfully specific.
>> Dara WANTS to sleep more, so she’s turning off Netflix sooner and picking up a book. Sleeping more will help her energy and alleviate anxiety. BAM!
>> Laura WANTS more time for herself, so she’s making a date with a friend to ensure she does something just for her and feels less resentment. WOOHOO!
(What, you don’t feel resentment about being trapped in the house with your kids?) 😆
Instead of just shouldering this vague, guilt-ridden pressure: “I need to work out more.”
↪️ We suggest you start your planning with something VERY tangible and meaningful in your life that you want to improve.
↪️ Then figure out what first step is POSSIBLE AND PLEASANT enough to make it start happening!
We learn from YOU. From our clients, from our years in gyms and classes, and from our Reset Members. 👋
And we’ve learned that the most meaningful movement goals usually have very little to do with mainstream “fitness” and everything to do with loving this one, precious life you’ve been given. ✨
