This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Burt’s Bees. The opinions and text are all mine.
Do you know what a new year, new month and Monday have in common? They are all the most popular times to start over or make a new goal. Today, no matter what day you are reading this I want to tell you that you can start over or get started RIGHT NOW.
Let me be honest with you, when you are ready to make a change in your life, the day of the week, the month, or the time of the year simply doesn’t matter. When you truly get fed up and you are ready to really make a change, you will start immediately.
Why postpone success? I promise that Monday doesn’t have any magical powers and the first day of a new month isn’t sprinkled with fairy dust.
I use to say “take it a day at a time,” but recently I started just taking it an hour at a time.
Every single hour is a chance to help you reach your goal. Let’s say for example that you want to be more active.
If that is your goal, I want you to get up right now, put your shoes on and go take a stroll down your street (-or walk around your backyard) for a few minutes.
See? You’ve already gotten started and when the next hour rolls around get up and do 10 jumping jacks or jog in place for 5 minutes! There is absolutely no reason you can’t start working toward your goals now.
I could write a thousand words giving you tips and strategies on how to reach your goals, but that would all be a ton of fluff because you only need to do one thing and that is act.
No amount of strategies and tips are going to do anything for you without action. From this point, I want you to take it an hour at a time and focus on action.
Sit down right now with a sheet of paper. On that paper, write each remaining hour of the day, until you go to bed. Next to each hour, I want you to write one small action you are going to take to reach your goal.
All you have to do now is one small thing from that paper each hour and check it off. Checking it off will feel really good! I promise. Not mention you will be one hour and one step closer to reaching your goal.
How am I incorporating this into my life?
My biggest goal is to get back on track by making healthier choices when it comes to nutrition, as well as unplugging as needed. Stress has definitely affected my eating choices! I usually go from eating nothing to eating things that are downright bad for me because I am stressed and busy.
My action was to find a healthy option that would fit into my busy and often stressful lifestyle.
Discovering NEW Burt’s Bees™ Protein Shakes (launched earlier this year) was definitely the best thing that could have happened.
As I work to be more mindful of the things that I put into my body, it was important to find a convenient on-the-go option that was nutritious and delicious.
The Burt’s Bees™ Protein Shakes are all of these and so much more. And they come in two delicious flavors: Chocolate and Vanilla.
My favorite formula is Protein +Healthy Radiance -each serving contains 15g of protein, 4.5 servings of fruits and veggies* and 25% of the recommended daily value of vitamins. It is also non-GMO, gluten-free, dairy and soy-free. I definitely recommend giving it a try.
What are your goals? Are you ready to start working toward them right now?

*Based on vitamin content. 4.5 servings of fruits and vegetables would be needed to reach 25% daily value of Vitamins A,C,E,K and B vitamins listed on the Nutrition Facts Panel.
