As we move toward the halfway point of the year, where are you with your New Year’s resolutions ? Did you commit to a healthy eating program? A fitness program? Getting more sleep?

At the end of every year, we take stock in our lives and make a bunch of well-meaning intentions for the coming year…promising things will be different. Except, if you are like most people, all that enthusiasm starts to wear off when the rubber meets the road and life gets really busy again.

The truth is, we are often too immersed in the routines, the details of life, to pick ourselves up and make big changes.

Yet we know positive intentions, law of attraction and yes, even New Year’s resolutions often work. So what is it that sets apart the failed resolutions from the successful ones?

About ten years ago, I started working with a business and health coach. Back then, the term “life coach” was unheard of and business coaches were for “bad” employees. I was actually doing really well in my career, so I didn’t fit the mold for hiring a coach. I simply wanted to change my life and I wanted someone to work with me on the changes.

The thing is, I was tired of setting intentions, resolutions and goals and never meeting them because life got too busy. I wanted to make real, lasting change. I wanted someone to brainstorm with, to hold me accountable for the goals I set and to motivate and inspire me when the going got tough.

Working with my business and health coach, I made major changes in my life. I worked less and made more, got promoted, made tough yet successful business decisions and finally, left the rat race to live the life of my dreams.

In fact, it was so successful and fun, that I became a certified professional life coach myself and launched my own business. My passion for health led me to Body Ecology coaching as well and since then, I have seen many of my clients – and other Body Ecology followers, change their lives in dramatic and wonderful ways.

Ready to Change Your Life With Body Ecology?

In my work with Body Ecology and as a health coach, I am aware that now more than ever, we want to feel our healthy best. These are stressful times and one of the ways we can stay calm, centered and keep our moods up is to feel healthy, to cultivate optimism and to trust that we are always okay.

If you know anything about my background, you know I haven’t had it easy health and mood-wise in the past. Yet the simple act of eating healthy with Body Ecology dramatically changed my life by helping me feel my best in mind and body.

First Steps – Creating Your Vision of Your Best Health

So are you ready to join me? Let’s get started – there’s no better time than the present! Here’s your first assignment…and this is a really fun one: write your vision for the best you ever.

This may sound really simple – so simple that some of you may be tempted to skip it altogether, waiting for the glitzy, sexy stuff that seems meatier. But I will tell you, that this one simple step of writing your vision for the best you ever is more profound than you can imagine.

Six years ago, when I wanted to make a huge change in my life – a change that would set the tone for my best health and living the life of my dreams – I took a chance and wrote my vision.

At first, like some of you, I pooh-poohed the whole idea of a vision. Yeah, I heard that Olympic athletes and millionaires had great success with their vision, but hey, this was before The Secret and Law of Attraction, so I wasn’t quite sold. While at a seminar, I learned about writing my vision and decided to experiment...something had to change and I figured, what did I have to lose?

Within one year of writing my vision, I was on a plane heading to the Caribbean island of St. Maarten. As the plane touched down, I burst into tears and as my husband looked at me and asked what was wrong. My answer was, “I’m so happy because I just realized that I have achieved just about everything in my vision.”

It was true, I was on the way to my home on a small nearby Caribbean island, where I would be working in my own business and living the simple, healthy life I had dreamed of just one year ago. All of this from writing my vision…and believe me, it’s not like I had all the pieces, money or resources in place when I started.

So here’s my invitation to you: write your vision for your best health – for the best you ever. Here are some guidelines:

  • Write about how you want to FEEL – not so much about what you want to have or do, but focus on how you want to feel, so you can experience the feeling of it as you think about it or read it.
  • Provide detail – be really specific. As you write your vision, provide all of the details of your ideal day, week or month. Make it so real that you can see and feel yourself living it.
  • Write in the present tense – write as if you are in your ideal vision right now. An example from my vision is something like, “ I wake up with the sun shining into my bedroom window. I awake peacefully and look out at the ocean. I get up and meditate for 20 minutes and then do yoga...”
  • Write about your ideal health – provide detail about how it feels to be healthy.  Include the kinds of food you’d be eating and how it feels to eat that way.
  • Focus only on the positives – instead of saying, I don’t have headaches, say “I feel healthy and vibrant all day.” If you are saying things like, “can’t, don’t, not, or no, rephrase them in positive terms. Talk about what you can do, what you are doing.
  • Dream big – this is not the time to be realistic: “Well, I want to live in a warm climate, but I can’t because of my job...or my spouse, or my current health situation.” This is the time to see the possibility of the life you truly want...of the health you truly want to achieve.
