Ep 60. Lifestyle change is hard! How to do it anyway | Matty Lansdown

Mar 10, 2022 | Podcast Episode



Let’s be real, none of us like to change. Change sounds sexy, but when push comes to shove, it’s hard work.

Let’s also be real, living with a thyroid issue requires change.

SO, how do we do it in a way that’s sustainable and becomes part of our lifestyle (and not just a fad)? Matty Lansdown joins me on the podcast to discuss mindset and change behaviour.

So many of us with thyroid health issues have felt so unwell for so long that we come accept that this is ‘just how I feel’. We don’t always realise that we CAN feel better. We can. (I’m a personal testament to this!).

Not only CAN we feel better, we can learn to make changes that are sustainable. So many of us have grown up in a diet mindset.  It does take some mindset shifting to see our health as a long term journey, not a 7 day diet plan.

The topics we cover in this discussion include:

  • Where do I start?
  • Short term v long term thinking
  • All in v All out thinking
  • Lifestyle v Therapeutic response approaches.
  • Willpower – when to use it and what do do when you run out.
  • Why do I want to feel better? Dig deep for real change.
  • Being physical, emotional and spiritual beings.
  • How to have hard conversations with people around you.

Matty has lots of fab quotes to remember, here are some you might want to take note of:

One tweak a week.

Be all in moment to moment.

Results guaranteed or your old body back!

If you don’t choose to make this a lifestyle, you’ll get your old problems back.
