Focus on the Positive

'We do not fear change - we fear loss' - In the educated and eloquent words of Polly Morland in her latest book 'Metamorphosis: How and Why We Change'. So let us focus on the positive gains - be it in our own well being or our democracy. 
I am fortunate to work with gorgeous people every day wanting change; supporting, guiding and motivating them to feel and look how they want to be and to be the best version of themselves. To help them focus on how great it is to feel and look strong, healthy, energised, trim, supple and value the most precious thing that we have - our body. 
It is about planning their delicious and nutritious meals (not what foods to avoid); planning when and where they can be active (not what activity guidelines they didn’t achieve).
It is so easy to think about the “Nots, the losses, the what ifs; the might haves”  
So be stronger than that. Focus on moving forwards. 
Build the picture of what your ‘change’ will look like. A visual, solid, real image that you can move towards. That you believe and can see.
Read Polly’s book when you have a moment and see from the 19 life stories combine with a wealth of smart thinking from psychology, philosophy, literature and science to explore how we are all changing from the minute we are born. And how GREAT we are it.

Onwards and upwards - here we go………
