In this week’s video, I give you some tips to get the Body Lovin’ results you really want. It’s not about making massive, painful changes. It’s just one small consistent action at a time.
Here are some of my favourite small, consistent action taking examples:
Every Wednesday at 1pm I teach a Core Yoga Class. This is a gentle combo of pilates and vinyasa style yoga and I have a group of 5 women that come to the class every week. Sometimes we have a few more people come but these 5 beautiful women are always there.
We do similar poses every week and sometimes I change things up a bit. But these women like the familiarity of the class. And if they take a bit of time off for holidays or illness, when they come back they say they can feel it in their body when they’ve missed a class.
In other words, they notice how the class makes their body feel – better!
But my favourite thing about this group of women is how they have really embraced the meditation practice at the end. I’m not sure if they have a meditation practice outside of the class, but I love how rested and relaxed they look at the end of the class – just like they’ve woken up from a deep sleep!
I’m also in awe of my students at my outdoor classes. Some of them have been coming consistently for years. And these women (who are in their 40s and 50s by the way) can do 40 to 50 situps in a row, no problem at all.
Believe me, they couldn’t do that many when they started with me but because of their weekly consistent action, they are getting stronger every week.
And I love the clients that come and work one-on-one with me to do The Body Love Bootcamp. These gorgeous women show up every week for a 30-minute session with me. And we go deep. It’s not always comfortable but by taking regular consistent action they can see their outlook, their mindset and their levels of happiness improve every day.
How can you take small, consistent action?
- Well, as Tony Robbins would say… firstly you need to decide what you want to work on. And when it comes to Body Love, I’d choose one thing at a time (that’s why The Bootcamp is broken down into 12 weeks). For example, if you want to work on your fitness, find a class or a YouTube channel you can follow and put some time in the diary and do it. ‘Wishing doesn’t create results but taking small, consistent action does!
- Don’t have too high expectations to start with. Trust that you will get the benefits you want with small consistent action. Trust is a really big thing. You really need to allow the universe to do its part. If you focus on everything you don’t have you’ll just attract more of that.
- Take the consistent action because it makes you FEEL good. Not because you think you SHOULD take the action. Anything that feels like a chore is something you won’t want to follow through with.
