How to Start Your Week on the Right Foot

Sunday nights.

They’re rough on all of us. The next day is Monday and so the circle of dread begins. I get it because I’m with you. The weekend is filled with laughter, fun & you can stay up late! But, on week days, you need to be responsible & go to bed at a reasonable hour in order to feel your best!

But, I’m here to tell you that Sunday night doesn’t have to be filled with dread. You can change your attitude and I’ll tell you how by focusing on the good things happening during the week.

1) Meal prep on Sunday. This will start your week on the right foot because you’re less likely to reach for processed foods. Bring foods you’ll look forward to eating!

2) Set your clothes out the night before. Want to catch some extra Zzz’s? Make sure you pick out your clothes the night before to avoid being late the next day & maybe you’ll get to sleep in for a few the next day.

3) Meditate on Monday morning. Before going to work on Monday morning, take 30 minutes out to meditate and cleanse your mind before heading into work.

4) Make plans after work. Get together with friends after work, so you have something to look forward to. Grab a coffee or a glass of wine & relax with your best gal pals.

5) Schedule a date night. Book a reservation at your favorite restaurant & surprise your significant other with a date night!

Hi I'm Hope and I'm Becoming a Holistic Health Coach!

Back in 2013, I knew the nutrition field was calling my name, but I just didn't know what I wanted to do. Personal Trainer, Nutritionist, Dietitian were a few options I explored, but I never followed through with any of them because I was never sure which to choose. 

One day, I looked for nutrition schools and came across the Institute for Integrative Nutrition, but had just graduated from college, so I knew it wasn't feasible.  In addition to the student loans that I now owed, my learning disability held me back. I was afraid I wouldn't be able to comprehend what I put in front of me. In order for me to understand something, I need to read it over a few times. It's frustrating when trying to comprehend material and not being able to process the information.

So, my love of nutrition was put on the back-burner because I was still living with parents and wasn't getting paid enough to pursue another career. 

I decided to move forward as a social media/marketing coordinator. I went from job to job trying to figure out what I truly wanted. Every job started out the same way. I'd love it and then something would happen that would make me dislike it. It was a pattern I desired to break.

Fast forward to this year when I met a girl in Anderson, SC that was a Holistic Health Coach. She went to the same school I looked into years before. I took it as a sign, but despite it being right in front of me again, I still searching for a profession that I loved. Photographer, wedding planner, social media coordinator, marketing manager, and the list went on. I'd tell my husband I wanted to try something new almost every week. But, truly, I had NO clue. I was confused, but determined to figure it out.

That was until I looked into the program seriously this time. I started reading all the components and it started calling my name. I contacted the school and spoke with an administer who told me all about the school.

"You have two options: a 6-month or 1-year program," said the gentleman. Everything he was telling me was appealing. The smile began to form on my face as I began to soak in the information. I knew it in my heart and knew my next step was to tell my husband, who I figured would be skeptical because well, the certificate is $5,000. 

But, at the same time, I KNEW this was my destiny. I knew that this is what I want. This is what I'm destined to do for the rest of my life. I'm learning how to balance earning a certificate as a health coach with my full-time job and it's hard, but it will be so worth it in the end. 

So, two weeks ago, I officially started my journey as a holistic health coach.
