Welcome to Week Six!

Motivation & Positive Self-Talk

This week is all about sustaining (or re-connecting to!) what motivates us to make healthy lifestyle choices. By identifying why healthy habits are important to us, we can stay the course! Remember, building habits takes time and consistency and sometimes we need to be reminded of what matters most. We also will discuss the importance of positive self-talk. We are often our own worst critics and we cannot expect positive outcomes from negative thinking. Practice being kind and encouraging to yourself along the way!

WEEK SIX: Getting Motivated!

Join Katrina and Sonya as they share tips on how to sustain your motivation and build a positive mindset.
