DO A LIFE WHEEL! See mine below

New LIFE WHEEL Goals for next 4 months

Normally I advise my clients to choose 4 areas of their life that they want to focus on for the next 4 – 6 months.  Then they need to write down the goals and the steps they need to take to achieve them.

So last time I did my life wheel (back in April) – I so badly wanted to get back in shape and take care of my health that I made that my sole goal.  So my steps were a whole body life wheel focus for the next 4 months.   My steps were:
-       Exercise daily – yoga or walking (looking into other possible classes)
-       Start running again – devise a plan to build back up distance
-       Floss my teeth daily (had just lost a filling prior to setting goals)
-       No alcohol until I reached my ideal weight.
-       Back to portion control and eating health meals (no takeaways, ready meals, etc).   I made my meals separately if family members wanted something else but tried to work some of their meals into mine.  They started to put more of my salads into their meals as well – Bonus!
-       Cut out (down) sugar (really hard as it is in everything) – this was actually motivated by reading someone else’s blog about the affects it had on his health.
-       Drink herbal teas (no coffee – as prone to wanting sugar or Starbucks).

I loved my plan and I have enjoyed making it happen (see prior weekly detox blogs/FB entry for more details) .  So, now onto the next challenge.

As I started with a total focus on health for the last life wheel goal, this time I am going the extreme with setting 6 – yes 6 areas I want to work on but 2 are very short term achievable.  Four areas will take 4 – 6 months to complete and 2 just need a power hour to get in place, but they are still important to me to get done.

I will first list my goals and over the next few days break them down into steps.

1.     Kitchen Extension
2.     Career challenges
3.     Personal Development (Piano I think)
4.     Weekend family activity (exercise or language – still thinking)
5.     Relationship with partner – plan longer term life goals together.
6.     Spiritual space – more clutter clear out.

Look forward to sharing more with you.  If you want to do a life wheel message me or add to a comment to FB and I will email it over to you.

So totally worth it!  I am going to continue on my new lifestyle path and I really am feeling better and better as the days and weeks have passed.  

This morning I was so looking forward to my morning run that I actually beat my alarm clock.  The runs I have had with Tina (my neighbour) are so enjoyable and the time goes by so quickly.  It is not just about running but catching up on news too that makes it fun.  I am looking forward to runs with my brother when I get to the States.

I reordered my detox teas for 15 more days.  It had nothing to do with the detox aspect as much as I really enjoyed the taste of them and I figured it would be good to drink them until I leave for the States. 

My calendar will continue to grow in colour and happiness - it really inspires me.  I do feel like a little kid putting on my stickers but I honestly love it, and I deserve my sticker!

Tips for this final week

1. When you begin your journey - approach it as a life long goal.  The benefits in the end will make you feel good every day.

2. Ask others to get involved in exercising, eating better, etc… it is easier and more enjoyable if everyone benefits.  They might not be as committed but they will benefit and be inspired to make some changes.  They don’t have to live in the same house but the encouragement will continue to inspire both of you.

3.  Again, so important to write down your end goals and action them.  Once I meet my goal, my plan is to go into management of maintaining the goal.  This will require me to make an action plan.  My calendar will help me stick to achieving the daily goals.  The self-hypnosis at night will also keep me focused.

So my 6 week detox was amazing, easy, fun, and motivating.   I do feel better and my clothes feel more comfortable.  The real bonus as stated before, is
100% more energy, sleeping better, eating better, feeling fit, mind is sharper, less stress,  more productive, and I am happier.  Why wouldn’t you do it?

Enjoy your week.  Marygrace
