Following up to the last episode, it covers learning the mindset to train yourself to set achievable goals that will of course lead to you having better health.

Fear doesn't have to be irrational. It can be quite a good motivator. In this episode, Maria reflects on her own fears of aging, losing her independence and not living her life to the fullest. She talks about ways she circumvented that fear through learning about the stages of behavioral change. She talks about bringing those psychological concepts and applying them to the Health and Wellness space. One of your main takeaways should be that if you want to break up with fear, you must find your WHY! There are no quick fixes to making long-lasting change. When you fail, frame it as a learning opportunity and ask yourself: "Where do I go from here?"

Action is the antidote to stuckness. Yet, taking action without taking inventory of where you are, without establishing a plan, without having achievable steps set up will keep you stuck. This client said he had no time. He couldn't make health a priority. Yet, he wanted to change. In this episode, Maria talks about the "antidote" to this inaction by reframing the way you look at your health holistically and setting incremental, realistic, and achievable goals to improve your health and keep you healthy in the long-term.
