“You Can Still Drink Your Chocolate Milk.”

Changing to a healthier lifestyle can come with some challenges.  Yes, it can be a “challenge” to prepare whole foods compared to going through the drive through at a fast phood joint.  Yes, it can be a “challenge” to go for a walk everyday when you are used to sitting all day.   Yes, it can be a “challenge” to think you are a wonderful person when you are used to telling yourself you are no good.

Almost all these “challenges” that you have with getting healthier are fixed by going internal.  99.9% of the time, the solutions for these problems are internal, not external.   The fix is a simple change in perception.  Simply look at the challenge differently. Change the angle, switch the filter, try a different lens – you’ve got to change the way you see things if you are going to change your behaviors.

I have a client who recently shared that one of the things he loves about the Innate LifestyleTM Program is that you don’t change your health by taking away all the bad stuff and depriving yourself of what you have grown to “love”.  Instead, you simply begin by adding more good things.  So, you add an apple to the donut you are eating.  You add a glass of water to the cup of coffee you are drinking.  You add a 10 minute walk to the couch potatoing you are doing.  Get the point?

The rule is, you never give up the bad stuff until you are 100% willing and ready.

Anyways, this guy has completely transformed his health and his life over the past year.  He has made tremendous changes in his eating habits and the amount of exercise he is getting.  Chronic disease is literally melting away with his transformation!  He has truly become a Wellness Warrior!

The thing is – it all started with him seeing things differently.  It started with a change in perception.  It started with him seeing that he could get very healthy without depriving himself.  He could still drink his chocolate milk.

Change your perception, change your life!
