Stop wishing, start doing

Sunday, December 30, 2012

Imagine that you are perfectly content with every aspect your life.
What does that life look like?
What steps do you have to take to make that life a reality?
Instead of WISHING, start DOING.
Put a plan into action today!

The above was my SparkCoach Daily Visualization for today and isn't that timely?!

Tomorrow is New Year's Eve and I've been pondering resolutions. I've never been one to make a new years resolution, but then I've never felt sufficiently confident or empowered to actually set a goal before. But that was before I got SPARKED! Wooohooo!

I retired last year and have been working towards simplifying, reorganizing my life and getting healthy. That is a work in progress. One of the things I really need to focus on is to slow down and relax.

Here is a part of my daily SparkPeople check in, short term goals:

Keep a goal journal.

Keep your goals in front of you.

Begin each day with the end (our goals) in mind.

During the day, do and pay attention to one thing at a time.

If faced with a mistake, failure or tough situation, think of two lessons you can learn from the experience.

When making a decision, follow your values and believes, not popular opinion or social pressures.

Let your imagination soar.

Do fatigue/tension self-checks throughout the day.

Pursue a creative outlet or hobby.

Visualization technique, using all five senses.


Aromatherapy, candles or oils.

Prayer or Reflection.

Shake it out (as needed).

Once a week, spend time near or listening to a body of water.

Choose a positive word or phrase to use each day.

Take some quiet time alone to reflect on problems, possible solutions, and your vision of a better day.

Practice saying "No" to those things not relevant to your goals.

Work toward an activity that you consider "bigger" or more important than yourself or your life.

Sit still and enjoy the blessings that you're working so hard for.


I just added these to my daily SparkCoach goals:
Eat a healthy breakfast
Use a piece of fitness equipment each day
Give yourself a 5-minute pep talk each day

More to come . . . .
