5 ways to get yourself ready to reset
Keep a journal
Throughout the 30 days, you might like to keep a diary or journal to document your experience. You can use it to keep track of recipes you loved, workouts you’ve done or even changes you’re noticing.
Practise positive self talk
The biggest determining factor to weight-loss and health success is a positive attitude. Start by listening to your internal monologue and stopping yourself whenever you hear a negative voice in your head. Tell it “thanks, but I’m choosing not to listen to you”, and pick a new positive thought. An example might be, “ugh, I’m so overweight”, and a replacement thought might be “I’m so grateful for my body, and I can’t wait to nourish it with healthy food”.
Get a reset buddy
Studies from Brown Medical School and Dartmouth University show partnering with someone who is serious about slimming down or getting healthy increases your chances significantly. Why not recruit a friend or family member to join you on the reset, and make lasting changes to yours and their health?
Your body is made up of 80% water, yet here’s the catch, it can’t store it for later. This is why daily hydration is essential for detoxification, digestion, waste removal, clear skin and healthy organs. The recommended amount of water is between 2-3L daily. If you’re currently not reaching this target, start setting a time on your phone to sip on a glass of water every hour, or have a large jar by your desk to remind you to get your fill.
Set yourself goals
Studies have found that people who set goals 14% are 10 times more successful than those without goals.
