Why You Are Not Making Progress and What To Do Instead

Why You Are Not Making Progress and What To Do Instead

Procrastination is a dark tunnel that swallows us into a vacuum of stagnation that keeps us stuck — and, I am sure you can agree, feeling stuck sucks.

That doesn’t have to be the case though!

There are two main reasons why we procrastinate:

1) We don’t have clarity what to do in order to move forward and feel confused where to start

2) We know that what we have to do is A LOT so we choose to do nothing

Here are my recommendations on what to do FIRST to avoid doing ZERO.

1) Break your goal into small measurable action steps that are actionable and executable within a given time frame

For example: if you want to write a book, begin by writing the first chapter…and the next one, and the next one, etc…

The same formula applies to all projects. 

2) Create the habit of scheduling things based on their priority ranking

Again, it is essential to choose a time-frame that is realistic and doable.  

I like to structure my goals in a 90-day period. It is not too short to stress me out and not too long to allow me to stay behind.

When you create your list, begin with the goals that are of uttermost importance. Usually, they are the ones that are the most intimidating.

3) Declutter your mind by decluttering your environment

  • Does your work environment enhance your productivity, or does it lead you to distractions? 
  • Are you prioritizing your primary goals, or are you jiggling so many things you’re losing motivation to do any of them?
  • Do you check your e-mail/Facebook/Instagram more often than is necessary to stay up to date

Chances are the digital world can survive on its own even if you shut down your mobile device. By shutting down the external noise, we shut down the noise of distraction. This is one of the many reasons I practice meditation.:)

And if you feel you need more breaks, try the pomodoro technique*.

The pomodoro technique is a time management method based on 25-minute stretches of focused work broken by 3-to-5 minute breaks and 15-to-30 minute breaks following the completion of four work periods.

To recap:

1) When we start a new project, we are programmed to experience discomfort. Often we justify our procrastination by telling us that something else is more ”important.” The key to building discipline is to follow the order of your priorities by completing what`s most important FIRST before you move on to your next task.

2) The bigger the change, the smaller (yet consistent!) the action steps should be. No progress is linear, and occasional setbacks are to be expected. Instead of beating yourself, re-frame your mindset to navigate obstacles as you would navigate roadblocks – with patience.

3) By breaking down your goals in small actionable steps, you’re going to see progress without getting overwhelmed.

Small and steady wins the race!

You are Worth It!

You are Worth It!

Dear reader,

If you have opened this blog-post, it is probably because the title of it spoke to your heart.

I know it has “spoken” to me in the moments when I`ve been at the bottom of helplessness.

For many years (from my teens to my early twenties), I lived with the belief system that there is something inherently wrong with me, that I am unlovable and unworthy of true happiness.

Yet I was always searching for answers. I always knew that there should be a solution to my chronic self-doubt.

How did I snap out of this mental limbo?

I gradually awakened to my authentic truth – to the essence of who I am. I allowed myself to be seen, loved, and appreciated for who I truly am.

And you can do it as well.

Please remember that:

  • Self-worth is a contract we make with ourselves.
  • It’s a mirror of our belief system and requires daily practice.
  • We decide that we are lovable, that we are worth it, that we are enough.

Not feeling “enough” is the root of most of our insecurities and sabotaging tendencies.

  • Not feeling enough tends to produce lower self-esteem.
  • Not feeling enough often results in disordered body image
  • Not feeling enough corresponds to the tendency of seeking constant validation and approval from others
  • Not feeling enough robs us of our will power to claim our worth and set our standards.

In short:

Not feeling enough is a disempowering mindset that creeps in everything we think, do, and experience as a result of our beliefs. In order to reverse it, we must trace the root of its cause and reframe our relationship to events from our past that have impacted us negatively.

Do you agree?

If we don’t believe we are worthy of happiness, no external validation/accomplishment/or material possessions will prove to us that we are.

The proof is in the pudding, they say. And we are the chefs of our mental cuisine.

The way we think about ourselves shows up in what we receive from others. When we build an unshakeable confidence that is based on our instrinsic qualities and self-respect, our confidence sets the example for how we deserve to be treated.

When we decide that we are worthy of respect and love regardless of our age, physical looks or material acquasations — our self-esteem begins to bloom and transform. And with it, our beliefs that we are -after all – E N O U G H.

Fall in love with yourself: create space for love by learning how to love and accept yourself unconditionally

Fall in love with yourself: create space for love by learning how to love and accept yourself unconditionally

Are you desperate to find a partner? This might be part of the reason you are still single. When we are feeling desperate, we repel love. When we feel whole and complete, we attract love effortlessly because we feel worthy and deserving of being loved.

Have you ever wondered if you can find the perfect partner for yourself? Have you ever been disappointed and left wondering if “good” men actually exist? Have you ever given your entire attention and devotion to someone who doesn`t reciprocate your affection and loyalty the way you deserve? Have you ever felt as if there is something “wrong” with you for not being able to attract a high-value man who reciprocates your love and affection?

The missing puzzle you have been looking for is called self-love. Nobody can love us the way we deserve if we don`t love and accept ourselves first.

Please note that you can enroll in this program on a month-to-month basis.* If you find your ideal mate in less than three months, you don’t have to continue working with me, unless you want to. *** The results vary on your individual situation.:) By trusting the process, we allow to receive what we`d asked for at its perfect timing.
Life is too short to settle for less than what you deserve!

Love comes from ourselves first. No one can love you unconditionally if you don’t love and accept yourself first. Self-respect is key.

Life is too short to fear being in love. Our heart wants what it wants: to give and receive love effortlessly.

And we don’t have to be in a romantic relationship to experience love. Love is everywhere around us and gets multiplied when we give it graciously: without holding back.

What we receive from others is a mirror of our relationship to our own hearts and bodies.

Our energy enters the room before we even start talking.

In order to attract a high-value man, you must embody the qualities of a high-value woman. Trust me when I say that YOU ARE a high-value woman. Even if you`ve been hurt or mistreated before you are worthy of receiving the respect and love you deserve.


When we bring love with us, wherever we go, love follows us in return.

~ Love is our divine birth right, and there is plenty of love for all of us.

With love and care,

Ana-Maria

Reset Your Digestion With The 14-Day Metabolic Reset

Reset Your Digestion With The 14-Day Metabolic Reset

Are you ready to start the new decade fresh and energized?

I am here to help you decide whether or not it’s time to do a metabolic reset.

But first, why am I talking about a metabolic reset in the first place? It has nothing to do with fad diets or detox pills.

Let me explain!

The body is designed to be self-cleaning and to excrete toxins, but here’s the problem….

  • It can’t always handle the toxic overload present in today’s environment. 
  • Chemicals not excreted accumulate in our fat cells and cell membranes become internal toxins. 
  • These toxins corrode the body from the inside out, making it harder to lose weight, have more energy or feel good in your body. 

Ouch.

 So what is a metabolic reset exactly?

A metabolic reset is a gentle way of clearing excess toxins from the body so it can operate at it’s highest potential. 

Think of this reset as something that delivers an all access pass to boundless reserves of energy that you didn’t know you had! 

A metabolic reset is like restarting your computer in order to reboot the system and clear the bugs and viruses that slow it down from operating at its optimal capacity.

You’ll find that every part of your body works better simply by “switching on” your metabolism through cleansing.

My clients find that cleansing helps them:

  • Shed excess weight (especially belly fat) 
  • Boost energy
  • Feel lighter and cleaner
  • Decrease cravings
  • Experience deeper sleep and clearer skin
  • Improve your digestion (less gas and bloating) 
  • Feel more present in your relationships
  • Feel more confident in your body
  • Decrease congestion and allergy symptoms
  • Discover food sensitivities
  • Reconnect to your sensuality
  • Create new healthy habits that energize you 

 How will I know if it’s time for me to cleanse?

Glad you asked!

It’s time for you to cleanse if you answer “YES” to any of these questions:

  • You get bloated after eating
  • You tend to gain weight easily, especially in your belly
  • You have extra pounds that won’t come off with diet and exercise  
  • You have headaches more than occasionally 
  • You frequently belch or feel gassy or gurgling in your belly 
  • You tend to feel lethargic during the day
  • You have cravings for sugary or starchy foods  
  • You experience mood swings or anxiety 
  • You have difficulty focusing or experience foggy brain 
  • You feel alienated from your physical wisdom
  • You find it challenging to eat intuitively
  • You experience pain, muscle soreness, or stiffness in your joints
  • You feel addicted to activities that you know aren’t good for you… and yet you can’t stop
  • You feel anxious, upset, nervous, or downright cranky

 What do I do now?

In my health coaching practice, I lead my clients through a detailed, step-by-step 14-Day Cleanse, complete with cleansing menus, recipes, customized meditations, Q&A sessions, and daily guidelines.

If you answered “YES” to any of the symptoms above, then click here now to schedule a time to talk with me about cleansing. 

I’ll help you decide whether or not to do this reset, and if cleansing is right for you I’ll show you how to get started. 

To your best health in 2020!

A 5-Step Formula To Beat Procrastination And Get Things Done

A 5-Step Formula To Beat  Procrastination And Get Things Done

This is a Straightforward Guide How To Start & Finish Anything:

In 5 Effective Steps

S. Shoot for accountability

This is the most fundamental step of starting anything: a project, a career change, a personal transformation, even a new relationship.

We have to stay accountable that we are moving from wishful thinking to practical execution. Knowing what needs to get done is far different from doing it. Depending on your personality, staying accountable might mean different things. Some folks are innately more disciplined than others and can get away with merely adding a note on their calendar. If you feel hesitant to depend on other people to keep you accountable, do it yourself but be very strategic about it. 

For example: if you have been meaning to fix your car “forever”, adding a reminder on your phone that says “fix my car” is not helpful. Our brain does not follow ambiguous massages; it only follows clear instructions within a specific context.

A much more useful reminder would be “reminding myself to fix my car by Friday,” followed by a reminder “did I do it yet?” It is likely that you will feel quite uncomfortable if you don’t follow your own instructions. I mean, who else would take us seriously if we don`t keep our own word?!

T. Tune in to your “why”

Let’s move on to step two: finding your “why.” 

Whether you want to fix your car to prevent future damage, or you want to shed stubborn weight/change your job/travel more/learn a new language/etc, you can’t start without being clear on your “why.” 

I am sure you’ve encountered people who keep talking and talking about the vacation they wish to take or the healthier diet they are eager to adopt, without doing anything about it. Why? Because they are not clear on their why.  

To achieve clarity and solidify your motivation to s.t.a.r.t, take your journal, and answer these questions with your complete honesty and undivided attention. 

  •  1) My decision to start… (fill in the blank)
  •  2) By starting this…, I am looking to achieve…
  •  3) Starting this… is important to me because….
  •  4) Once I start…I am going to feel more

    (
    accomplished/disciplined/in shape/ choose the emotion that describes you best) in my life
  •  5) Starting this… is important to me because….
  •  6) If I don’t start right now, I will feel….

    (
    defeated/fearful/unfulfilled/far away from my goals/...choose the emotion that describes you best)

A. Aim for consistency

I know that you know that knowledge alone doesn’t equal behavior change.

Even after you have established accountability and are clear on your why, you still need to do it. Some projects get done in a day while others require our full commitment for an extended period of time. Before you start, decide what you want, then break it down to an attainable goal.  Instead of planning to remodel your entire home in one day, which sounds intimidating from the very beginning, make sure your goal is specific, measurable and achievable, realistic and time-bound. (read more here ).



Consistency equals discipline. 

R. Regain responsibility

Regaining responsibility stands for regaining control of your life. We are all human; we all experience days when procrastination seductively creeps in tempting us to give in. However, if you are committed to yourself, you regain your motivation much faster than if you were not responsible for your actions.

The power is in you; you just have to seize it.

T. Take action RIGHT NOW!

Whatever you would like to s.t.a.r.t, do it now. Write down your goal, call a friend, do a google search, order a book, talk to your spouse, go for a walk to clear your head, move your body, eat your veggies… Whatever it takes to get you started, do it. And do it now.

~ There is never a more in/convenient time than now. 

Just s.t.a.r.t.
