How a Positive Mindset Can Help You Achieve Healthier Goals

Having an empowering mindset is essential for achieving healthier goals. With the right attitude and beliefs, we can take the necessary steps to reach our desired outcomes. When it comes to improving our health, having an empowering mindset helps us shift our focus from what we can’t do to what we can do. Through this lens of empowering beliefs, we can take the decisive approach to create healthier habits and ultimately achieve our goals. In this blog post, we will explore how having a positive mindset can help you achieve healthier goals.

The Power of a Positive Mindset

Journey with me for a moment, as I walk you through my mindset when doing Orange Theory.  When I first started Orange Theory workouts, I often found myself mentally chanting “you can’t do this! You are going to hurt yourself! Hey, Lisa, you’re going to die!”  Does this resonate with anyone?

I quickly realized that if I was going to benefit from this exercise program, I had to change my self-talk and mindset.  The reality was not that I couldn’t do it, I just didn’t want to do it.  I wasn’t going to die.  Yes, the exercises are hard, but not impossible, and if something feels unsafe, I can adjust the exercise to meet my level of strength.

Since changing my mindset and accepting that this is hard but doable, I have started seeing improvements in my strength, endurance, and overall performance.   By changing my mindset, I was able to keep going when things got hard and challenging. Instead of telling myself I couldn’t do something, I told myself I just had to keep going. This is the power of a positive mindset. It can help us recognize our capabilities and give us the courage to keep going, even when things seem impossible. A positive mindset gives us the belief that we can do anything we put our minds to, and it can help us reach our health goals.

Goal Setting with a Positive Mindset

Setting goals and working toward them is one of the most empowering and rewarding things you can do. It is important to start any journey towards achieving your goals with a positive mindset. When you approach goal setting from a place of positivity, it will help to keep you motivated, even when times get tough.

It is possible to cultivate a positive mindset even in the face of obstacles and challenges. When starting out, it can be easy to think something is impossible but with a positive mindset, it will be easier to keep going. This will allow you to better problem-solve and reach your goals more quickly and effectively. 

Start by acknowledging what you have already achieved. Instead of focusing on what you haven’t accomplished yet, recognize your successes and the progress you have made. This will help to build confidence and give you the courage to continue down your path.
