Living Well Seminar Change Your Mind, Change Your Body - Elect Wellness
Change Your Mind, Change Your Body: The Psychology of Fitness Success Summary
On February 3, Living Well at Robson Ranch residents welcomed Thomas Jensen, Exercise Physiologist, Personal Trainer, author, and owner of Elect Wellness. He shared his philosophy that focused on mindful decisions affecting all areas of one’s life.
Thomas’s educational presentation was inspirational and motivational. He encouraged residents to look ahead to becoming and staying healthy. We can change our perspectives and beliefs by pre-programming ourselves to make changes and developing habitual behaviors.
Fourteen suggested steps to better health: 0 – Define – understand why to make changes – move away and move forward 1 – Optimism –view the glass as half-full, not half-empty 2 – Put space on the continuum: from sick ----------> moving toward healthy 3 – Ownership – adopt a positive mindset, not claiming “not me” or “not my fault” 4 – Long-term perspective – avoid the roller coaster effect when trying to change habits 5 – Behavioral changes – set realistic action goals 6 – Benefit and Enjoyment – recognize benefits of and learn to enjoy a different lifestyle 7 – Quality not Quantity – strive for the most beneficial versions of foods and exercises 8 – Non-negotiables – manage to squeeze in activities, healthy foods, and enjoyment 9 – Real vs. Fake – enjoy nutritious, natural foods and avoid diet fads and fast foods 10 – Recognize lifestyle challenges – look forward to desired lifestyle changes 11 – The 1% Investment – focus on fitness 45 minutes, twice weekly 12 – Set new standards – make physical change standards analogous to socioeconomic standards 13 – MUST not WANT
Soundbites: Build esteem through education. Disregard impulses add illusions. Care about yourself. Act according to your values.
