Did you know that 40% of what we do on a daily basis is habit or routine?
Yes, we perform the same actions day in and day out and then wonder why we don’t ever seem to accomplish the kinds of lifestyle changes we’d like to see for ourselves. But imagine the incredible opportunities that paying attention to these can offer us. As Thich Nhat Hanh once said, Awareness is like the sun. When it shines on things, they are transformed.”
When you work with Derek as your integrative health coach, you will both go over your daily routine, see what could be revamped, and work to implement easy, seamless changes within your life that will leave you mentally focused, and physically transformed.
“Awareness is like the sun.
When it shines on things, they are transformed.”
~ Thich Nhat Hanh
What kind of a difference might it make to add a few of the following items to YOUR checklist?
- Prepare lunch and healthy snacks before work
- Fill up a water bottle before leaving the house
- Turn off electronics 30 minutes before bed
- Meditate 10 minutes daily after lunch
- Accomplish these things BEFORE heading to grocery store.
Checklists are clear and short – usually between three and seven points. People are quick to write off the checklist as old fashioned or too simple to utilize. In fact, a checklist’s power isn’t in its complexity, but its consistency. For example, did you know that, worldwide, when surgeons and medical staff used checklists prior to surgeries for 6 months, the average number of Infections and major complications dipped by 36 percent and the mortality rate fell 47%? As Atul Gawande, author and lead surgeon who created the aforementioned checklist for the World Health Organization (WHO) says,
“Checklists remind us of the minimum necessary steps and make them explicit. They not only offer the possibility of verification but also instill a kind of discipline of higher performance.”
This standard inspires Derek, and he aims to inspire the same standard of excellence within his clients. Using your current schedule and lifestyle preferences, you and Derek will create a personalized checklist to follow that will inspire and enable you to successfully reach your own highest potential – with confidence and ease.
