When people first start with us, they’re often surprised how little we recommend they change to start with.




They’re used to, when starting somewhere new, being told to change loads of things.


Start exercising.


Change your breakfast.


And lunch.


Tea too.


The snacks will have to change.


And the drinks – less caffeine and alcohol, more water please.


You need to sleep better too.

And be less stressed.


Like giving people 20 things to do that they’ve struggled with in the past is going to cause less stress, not more.


Research shows that if you try and change 3 or more habits in one go, you stand, on average, a 7% chance, of successfully changing them and maintaining them.


Two habits gives 20-30% success.


One habit 80-90%.


So, we’d much rather have you master one (or maybe two, depending on the situation) change first.


Get that ingrained into your life as a new habit.


Then move on to the next thing.


It never ceases to amaze us the amount of people in our industry who think doing the same thing, in maybe a slightly different way, will work this time.


If someone has struggled to change their entire life in one go (and let’s face it, who wouldn’t?), then why would this time be any different just because the words used are slightly different?


We’re all about the ‘big wins’ at RISE.


The one or two things you can do that will bring the biggest results.


Rather than lots of ‘little things’.


You can work on them later when the ‘big wins’ are habits.


So, if you haven’t already, start with the things you can change that you will find relatively easy and will produce the biggest changes.


Maybe batch cooking meals, maybe breakfast, maybe just stating the exercise and keeping everything else the same for now.


And go from there.






Much love,
