Okay, maybe the title is exaggerating a little.
I didn’t take a vow of silence, but if you’re particularly observant, you’ll notice that the last blog I posted was two and a half years ago.
There are a few reasons for that.
Back in the second half of 2017, while building Ritual Coaching in its original form which was habit-based exercise and nutrition, I was hired by Stronger U as a nutrition coach. This was a Pretty Big Deal and consumed my professional life. Since then, all of my nutrition coaching has been and will continue to be through Stronger U.
Up until this year, I was still offering exercise coaching through Ritual Coaching. As of this year, I will no longer be offering an exercise component, as I’m switching gears, and taking Ritual Coaching in a new direction, focusing on mindset.
One of the other Pretty Big Deals is that I moved from New York to Vancouver, Canada to live with my boyfriend Alex. Then we got engaged, which is neat.
During 2018, I traveled to: Vancouver (duh), London, Greece (Athens and Mykonos), the Netherlands (Amsterdam and Meppel), Spain (Barcelona and Valencia), Japan (Tokyo, Kyoto, and Mount Fuji), and through a ton of US cities including Austin, Kansas City, the Grand Canyon, and an adventure-filled road trip from San Francisco to Lake Tahoe, through the redwoods to Portland.
Aside from travel and nutrition coaching, I’ve been absorbing more and more information about habit change, especially anything that relates to psychology and your mindset, and I have been putting more principles into practice myself than ever before.
I’ve been using a lot of these same techniques to help my fitness and nutrition clients transform their bodies and lives, I have so much to share about this stuff that it’s practically spilling out.
From here on out, I will not be sharing what I’ve learned strictly about food and exercise. My recent writing, and the bulk of my writing to come, will be about mindset.
I will continue writing about habits, because I believe that your actions are directed by your thoughts, and so addressing them is still relevant.
You’ll learn about how you can take advantage of behavior change to get results in any sphere you want—whether it’s going to the gym, learning a language, building a business, or any goal you have in mind.
At other times, you’ll hear about how to manipulate your own mindset in various ways that will make you better—how to be happier, healthier, or more resilient.
And what could be better than that?
