The 3 Easy Steps are as follows:
1-Your greatest resource. Your mind is your greatest resource and has the ability to control what you and your body does. Use it to your advantage by, practicing breathing and relaxation techniques. Revisit your goals everyday and update them as necessary. Visualize yourself accomplishing your daily and weekly goals. Repeat positive affirmations daily to keep your mind focus.
2- The two P’s. Plan and prepare. When you plan ahead your weekly menus it is much easier to eat right and stay on track. Plan ahead what day you are going to have a treat and then stick to it. This way you are in control of your eating, not your emotions. Prepare foods and meals in advance to make meal and snack time convenient for you.
3-Time for yourself. Make sure you spend time for yourself everyday. Whether it is exercising, a sport, walking in nature, or meditation. Whatever will invigorate you and motivate you should be a part of your daily routine.
