Consistent Action will Change Your Life

by | Nov 1, 2019 | Mindset

If you have an unhealthy relationship with food and eating, it is likely that you also struggle with consistency.

Consistency means that you do something on a daily or regular basis that will lead to stability and sustainability.

This takes time, and eventually, when you look back at change created within 3 months, 6 months, or 9 months, you can see:

  • How much you have changed;
  • How much you have achieved, and
  • That you are happier and healthier.

Consistency is the key to successfully changing unhealthy or unhelpful habits or behaviours.

When you look back at the bigger picture, you can see that the time and effort on small changes and consistency has paid off!

Here are four (4) tips to help you start to become more consistent with healthy habits and behaviours.

Tip #1 – Be Gentle with Yourself

Along your journey of changing habits and behaviours, if you miss a day here or there, ensure you do not criticise yourself. It’s okay!

Be kind to yourself and try not to berate yourself or your efforts.

You are doing the best you can.

Instead of giving up, you pick yourself up straight away, or the next day and start again. Remember, some progress is better than no progress.

Tip #2 – Small Habits Become Big Change

When you make small consistent changes, they become habits.

Some of these things may be:

  • Drinking 2 Litres of water;
  • Eating regularly;
  • Managing stress, and/or
  • Saying something positive to yourself every day to uplift yourself.

These small behaviour and habitual changes don’t simply cease if you think something negative about yourself, or if you have a bad day.

Instead of criticising yourself, you can resume your progress by continuing with your small positive behavioural changes.

Tip #3 – Build Your Resilience

During your journey you may start to notice and feel obstacles, fears, setbacks and discomfort. How you change your response to these things will help you to develop the resilience and persistence required for true transformational change.

The most important part of the journey from here on in, is that you start to change what you see, and how you see yourself and the world.

The focus from here will be to see the positives and achievements more brightly, and be more curious about the obstacles and setbacks and what are they trying to tell you. There are always lessons to be learned from hindsight.

Tip #4 – Less Focus on the Outcome

When you start a process of change, it is easy to become really focused on the outcome, rather than the process of change.

This is especially true for people who set goals which are performance based, such as ‘I want to lose 5kgs’.

Rather than focusing on how you will be after the change, i.e. ‘5 kgs less’,  focus on the process of healthy change. This is in fact much more valuable!

Remember, creating and changing small habits leads into big changes over time . . .

Consistent action, no matter how small or large, will ultimately transform your life.

Maintain consistency and create new habits for life!

Improving your relationship with food is made easier when you have a safe, respectful, positive and healthy support system.
