It’s great to know ‘how’ to do something, but it’s even more important that you actually do it.
Accountability is regularly facing the truth about the gap between your intentions and your actual behaviors. This is true with anything in life, not just your body and your health. Wouldn’t you agree?
Did you know that many high class professionals such as athletes, CEOs, managers, moms etc. hire people to help them examine their intentions and create an EXACT plan of when, where, & how their actions back up those intentions will be carried out. Sometimes this includes things like eating certain foods to keep up energy for their work during the day — sometimes it deals with practices like breathing instead of blowing up at a colleague or family member (an action) because their life intention is to be a kinder person.
While I can’t exactly individualize a plan for you without knowing your specific situation, I can encourage you to create an Accountability Log where you check in with your actions vs. your intentions at the end of each month to see if everything is adding up.
Grab a notebook to get started. Draw a line down the middle.
Label one side Intentions. Label the other side Actions.
Begin recording each and checking in with yourself over the course of 90 days, 6 months, and a year. This will give you great feedback as to whether what you want to do is what you are actually doing.
