Episode#44: The Stages of Change

If you follow me on Instagram, you’ll see that I’m taking part in a challenge called “75 Hard”. It’s seventy-five days of being consistent with taking care of your body and mind, and while I’m quite sure there will be physical benefits, it’s really about becoming mentally stronger. 

Doing anything new consistently is difficult, especially when our minds are wired to prefer the status quo. Even before I started the challenge, I caught myself making excuses. “Oh, next week is a better time to start”, or “I should prepare a bit more first.” I’m glad that I decided to start sooner rather than later, because I’m adjusting to what works (or doesn’t) along the way. 

If starting something new (or staying consistent with it) is difficult for you, too, this episode will give you some insight into why and what to do about it. I’m sharing the five stages of change using the 75 Hard Challenge as an example, so you can stop procrastinating and start taking action on the things you really want to achieve in life.
