Review – Refresh – Replenish – Reward
Review: Take a good look & be honest about what you’ve managed-or not been able to, & why. Periodic review will keep all your cylinders revved & fine-tuned, so you can keep your progress moving at a good clip.
Refresh: Add, delete, tweak & be realistic & innovative, so your plan stays doable & exciting. If not, your energy will wane & your progress will lapse.
Replenish: Do you need new sneakers, fit tracker, or meal service? What about a new activity that promotes breathing deeply, like a great yoga class? Remember to replenish your mind, body & spirit, so you stay inspired & motivated.
Reward: People often get caught up in the process, which is awesome! But it’s equally important to acknowledge the progress you’ve made & reward yourself. A great weekend getaway? A massage series? Treat yourself to something healthy & indulgent & make a mental note to pat yourself on the back & share the news with your entourage!
Psst-We've kept a little secret until the end. You know we love alliteration, & our last concept in this post also begins with a "R".
It's just that it's the one that people usually don't want to hear, but it's oh-so-necessary in everyday life, alas.
Repeat: If you've been following us even for just a moment, you know we always talk about the effort it takes to maintain a healthy-happy lifestyle. It’s never “done”. But with all the progress you’ve made & how much confidence you’ve built embracing the process, you know now that it’s not a dreaded chore, but a non-negotiable gift you give yourself so you can live a healthier-happier life-bravo!
Best, Patrick & Jo-Anna
