Self-Discipline has been one of the hardest things for me to master in regards to exercise and healthy eating habits. Doing what I know I need to do and is good for my well being, even when I don’t want to. It took a lot more than just feeling motivated, because we all know motivation just disappears when the feelings we had when we committed are not there anymore or they start wearing off.
A life changer for me was ACCOUNTABILITY, finding people with the same desires to change and to better their lives, people that have been through it and had succeeded.
Discipline is not something that some people have and some don’t. The people that have it, have been practicing the right kind of things consistently until they form strong habits. The people that don’t have it, have been practicing the wrong things consistently and also forming strong habits hard to break. So, practice makes perfect, it all depends on what kind of things you are practicing.
Choosing one small action you can take towards your goal and consistently doing it will create a compound effect on your results. Because slow progress is always better than no progress.
Find support and a tribe that has your back! Reaching out is a good first step.

I support you with the hardest job of all, the raising of your precious children. I help you find joy, peace and ease dealing with your family challenges. I teach you to connect instead of divide by parenting through love. I work with parents who are committed to turning their family dynamic around, to bringing more peace to their homes and cooperation from their kids. In other words, I teach them how to stop yelling and punishing and how to parent through empathy and connection. Parents know when their approach is not working and when they reach out, I meet them right where they are, I offer them a judgment-free and confidential relationship, I guide them through their struggles, celebrate their successes and support them in their setbacks. After working with me you will feel confident about the best way to raise your children, you will feel a sense of peace and regain your joy knowing that every member of your family feels loved and valued, they are heard and they matter. You will be the parent you always wanted to be in the midst of any circumstance. I am a mother of three boys and I went from being the perfect parent in my fantasies to a “monster mom” in reality and in a matter of a couple of years after I had my first child. My world crumbled. It was chaos. And then I went to being a confident mom that gained her joy back thanks to a deep dive into conscious parenting, a long journey of inner work still to this moment and staying committed to being true to myself.
