After reading this post, I hope you will be convinced - if you are not already - that what most of us are most in need of, is more support. And that you will be motivated to look for and find that support. Put another way, education that consists solely of providing information is not enough. Information may persuade us of a need to change but few of us are able to create the change without support.
I would love to read your comments on this. You can write your thoughts at the end of this post.
A case in point is losing weight and keeping that weight off permanently. Currently in Australia there is considerable interest in this issue as evidenced by a recent episode of the ABC program, The Drum, being devoted to it. From a health point of view, we know that snacking on processed food throughout the day does nothing for our health; yet many people do just that because processed food is usually tasty, cheap and easily available.
Another example from my own life is exercise. I know that exercise is beneficial but to date have failed to find the motivation to build it into my daily routine! And that is despite my own understanding of the benefits of exercise and the ongoing efforts of my extremely knowledgeable and skilled exercise physiologist.
Yet another example would be meditation. The benefits of a regular meditation or mindfulness practice have been widely studied, yet when it comes to a daily practice, there is nearly always something urgent that needs to be attended to first!
I’m sure you can think of many of your own examples.
How does more support help?
If you need further help with this exercise, get in touch with me. I am offering free 20-minute phone consultation this coming week through to the end of this month (March 2019).
