Are you tired of not doing the things you know you should be doing, but for whatever reason you’re not taking action on what you want to be, do, or have?
Is it a lack of willpower or motivation? Not having a big enough desire, or clear enough goals?
The problem is your mind
Neuroscience shows us that almost 80% of our choices and actions are subconscious. Some parts of our brain work to protect us from danger and threat, other parts work to keep us comfortable and safe. These older parts of the brain (called the reptilian and mammalian brains) override our conscious brain – the pre-frontal cortex – the place of our thoughts, dreams, desire, plans, and strategies.
Essentially only about 20% of our choices are conscious, but that doesn’t mean you can’t change your behaviours to improve your health, fitness, and well-being.
I coach you to understand what drives you, what makes you want to avoid certain actions, environments, people, or to seek comfort instead of taking action to get what you want.
I help you exercise your mind to eat, move, and be well
The first step toward changing and transforming your unconscious patterns and behaviours that are blocking you is to work like a scientist. Observe your patterns and behaviours, notice how you react or respond to situations, people, and environments, what you tend to resist doing, and when you give up self-control.
Once you’ve identified the patterns that don’t serve you in your day-to-day life, you have the power of awareness. This allows you to create new strategies and healthy practices that may divert you from falling into old behaviours, making it easier to to accomplish your health, fitness, and life goals.
What we want starts with a thought
But a thought alone is not enough to get what you want, which is why I coach people to exercise their mind.
Think of a simple physical exercise like the biceps curl. If you do it well, with good form, and keep increasing the challenge over time, you will see the result of a bigger, stronger muscle. Apply this same concept to training your brain. With knowledge and frequent practice you can transform your thoughts into feelings that propel you into action.
Whether you desire to improve your fitness, eat better and cook healthy meals, get clarity on how to achieve your goals (or all of the above), I am here to coach and support you in that transformation.
