Kathy Rasmussen was joined by Lara Dalch for this episode of the Wine & Webinar. Lara is a health and lifestyle for women on the rise: getting them back to a place of health and confidence after they have spent a lot of time not looking after themselves. Lara has a background in both psychology and holistic health which she has infused together.
Lara will be sharing her tips on how you can get yourself back to a healthy and empowered place; where looking after you is something that is intuitive and easy, instead of a stressful experience.
Who do you want to be this year? When you are at your most powerful and confident place, what does that look and feel like for you. If you’re not where you want to be right not, and are not at the top of your game; imagine how you feel when you are at your most powerful and hold onto that vision.
We all have bad days, but there’s a difference in how we show up when we’re at our most powerful or when we’ve lost that energy. When you don’t feel physically well, it changes all areas of our business and life.
What are unconscious stories or self-sabotage that keep us feeling tired and lazy?
Story One: The All or Nothing Trap – you feel like you have to go ‘all in’ or it’s just not worth doing; it’s too hard; or, you feel like you just don’t have the time to do it.
When this story comes up, we have to get over the hurdle of wanting to create a grand plan (that will set us up for failure), and feel at ease with small and achievable daily goals. Also, don’t depend on your willpower to make good choices: it’s not the best strategy to use.
Lara’s tip: find the balance between flexibility and how you achieve your goals!
Story Two: The Inconsistency Myth – if you find that you’re being inconsistent, you’re probably not really looking at your true motivation. If you go deeper than the surface reason you want to do something; you will find your true why.
Always make sure that you focus on the positive over the negative. When you flip the way you usually look at something, you’ll find that you’re more consistent in your approach.
Story Three: The Identity Illusion – we have an image of ‘healthy’ in our head. Fear and assumptions of healthy behaviors and what they look like can hold us in a place of total inertia. Don’t allow the rigid perception of self-image to stop you from believing that you can be the kind of person who meditates, does yoga and exercise and lives a healthy lifestyle.
Story Four: Failure is Inevitable Bias – just because you might have ‘failed’ in the past, doesn’t mean that it will happen this time. A lot of health and wellness programs only focus on one area of our lives. Each of us need a health and wellness program that is tailored to us as individuals: we can continue to experiment until we find exactly what works for us.
Lara’s tip: you don’t fail when you’re experimenting!
Bonus: The Lone Wolf Fallacy – just because you manage to do so much in your life by yourself, it doesn’t mean we have to do everything by ourselves! Having some outside support and a different perspective can be a complete game-changer for you, as there’s only so far we can go on our own.
Remember, just because you’re empowered and strong doesn’t mean you’re obligated to do it alone!
