Things I know for certain. The ladies I coach are intelligent, capable human beings who possess the desire to live out their ideals of physical and mental self care. Their struggles vary from weight and stress management, to finding new careers and relationships or just living their life with more comfort, focus, and clarity. They have the knowledge and willingness to make change but have become frustrated in repeated unsuccessful attempts or struggle maintaining new habits consistently over time.
Behavior and habit change is tough – NOT due to a lack intellect, character, or drive – but instead to a combination of brain science and a lack of belief. A lack of confidence in ability to sustain changes permanently when there has been painful histories of attempts and falters. It was not your fault. You weren’t given the right tools to change your mind at the same time you were changing your actions. Habits are tenacious. Our brain relies on our habits as its first choice of action in order to conserve our mental and physical energy that is on most days…. tapped. Tapped by the running, chaos and stress of our everyday lives.
Furthermore stress is much more than just the physical acts of being busy – it’s also relative to our very thoughts about our busyness like: “I can’t cope” and “I’m overwhelmed” or “I’m never going to get this right so maybe I just ought to quit trying and accept things as they are”…
Remember with past attempts you did not have help structuring change methods proven to vastly increase your odds of success. No one listened intently between your words to understand what result you were seeking and what truly held you back from it, shining a compassionate light on subconscious thoughts fighting hard against the logical decisions of well being.
In addition, overwhelming stress demands that you follow old routines to a fault, performing the same patterns of not just doing, but thinking, again, and again. Binge eating, social media, more alcohol than we would prefer, skipping workouts, and even more painful, the endless loops of self doubt, negative self talk, and chronic worry draining your mind and spirit all day long. And no matter the herculean effort, your brilliant intelligence is not the solution.
Lean Into Fear helps develop a blueprint with a “been in your shoes, empathetic, and light-hearted presence”. Your unique needs are always in the forefront. We approach the changes you seek by utilizing mindfulness, self-compassion, and the proven brain science methods of action in change. It all feels good!!
