Where your focus goes, energy flows!

Life is energy, and energy is never stagnant — it’s in constant flux and movement. When your quality of life is not where you want it to be, try taking control of your focus.

Reflect on what you focus on and why you are focusing on it. Associate more positive results or less negative consequences with a specific behavior.

For example, if you want more health and vitality in your child’s life, you can associate the cost of the pediatrician visits as a negative consequence, and focus on providing your child with healthy meals as a behavior you’re going to do consistently. The cost of the doctor visit will push or pull you towards spending extra time and energy in choosing nutrient dense food and packing the right lunches for school.

When you take control of your focus, you take control of your life! Associating positive rewards and negative consequences to your focus can push and pull you in the direction of where you want your quality of life to be.

Be patient and be proactive. Creating consistent and lasting change takes time.

Lasting change is the name of the game. If you choose to focus on small, consistent, positive behavior changes for your quality of life, chances are you’ll see the results accumulating overtime until the tipping point is in your favor.

Don’t beat yourself up or quit if you slip back to the old patterns or behavior — everyone has the capacity to slip into poor decision mode. Life is demanding, and with all the stress that’s laid upon us, we have so many choices to try to make life a little less stressful.

When you slip into choosing immediate returns with negative rewards, just check yourself and get back on track. Slipping and checking is vital for your focus.

When you get back on track, consider finding someone to hold you accountable to the goal you have set for your quality of life so you can stay consistent in your behavioral changes to cultivate a lasting change!
