How To Train Yourself To Be Optimistic

Here we are already well into the year, and March has come alive! Our goals may have died off, but March is here and looking at you dead in your face. March is the month that is filled with reminders and always throwing little jabs at you.

This is causing you to take a closer look at your self and pushing you to get your goals in order.

So don’t disappoint March.

Stay optimistic!

When the year first started, my timeline on Facebook and Instagram was cluttered with ‘New Year New Me”. I can’t tell you how many times I read how life is to short, and this is the year that I will lose weight and get in the best shape of my life. Then as the weeks rolled by, so did all of the enthusiasm, and I think I know why.

There are so many diets and exercises floating around, which makes it challenging to decide on what you should take an interest in. But here is my suggestion. Try the one thing that sounds doable to you and then stick with it for 30 days. If you don’t see results and feel significantly better after those 30 days, then maybe that diet or workout style isn’t for you.

When you find the most effective style, I promise that you will not want to throw in the towel. The key is to find what works for you and stay excited about it the little changes you see.

Heres the thing, over the years, I’ve learned that setting small goals will help maintain an optimistic view.

Would you do me a favor? Tell me which of the following two statements sounds the most obtainable and creates a more optimistic feel in your brain

Me talking to a client

” Okay, Susie, I see your weight is 210 pounds, so lets set that weightloss goal over the next few months for you to lose 2-5  pounds per week. Does that sound doable?”

-VS-

“Okay, Susie, I see your weight is 210 pounds, so lets set that weight loss goal for you to lose 60 pounds over the next 3 months. Does that sound doable?

Run with whichever approach that makes you feel optimistic. There are enough pessimists in this world, and you don’t need to be one of them. So think positive and stay excited about your goals.

You could have chosen any blog to read, but you chose mine, and I’m honored!
