How To Master Self-Discipline

What does Self-Discipline mean?

Don’t believe that you can be motivated every single day. Instead, our behaviors and actions comes from discipline and discipline is created by knowledge, our habits and consistency.

Self-discipline is your ability to control your desires and habits for long enough to stay focused on what needs to be done to achieve your goals, feel the way you want, live the life you wish for and be your highest self.

With self-discipline your are more likely to reach your desired outcomes and you’ll be calm and patience about the journey. Stay focused, develop a growing mindset and work on your prioritizes.

If you’re lacking self-discipline you probably often feel that you:
  • Procrastinating

  • Having a “Give up attitude”

  • Get easily distracted

  • You’re inconsistent

  • Not developing better habits

Where do you start?
  • Take action and practice new habits daily

  • Be clear on your goals and remind yourself of them daily

  • Set small goals along the way

  • Know your ‘why’

  • Practice prioritizing the things you actually need and will take you where you want to be (stop wasting time on things that doesn’t matter)

  • Work on your mindset, visualize your outcome

Overcome Limiting Beliefs

Your Belief System Is Sabotaging Your Results

For example, Maybe you’ve been overweight the majority of your life. You have looked at other people and thought “I’d never be like them” OR they have even told you what you are, overweight. You started to identify yourself with this, adopting the belief that you’ll always be this way and you can’t be fit and healthy.

Maybe you have spent so many years telling yourself “I am an anxious person”, you started to actually identify with it, adopting anxiety and fear into your belief system about who you fundamentally are. Maybe you never thought you could be different, be or have what you wanted.

In some cases, your limiting beliefs come from wanting to keep yourself safe. Maybe you prefer the comfort of what you’ve known to the vulnerability of what you don’t, think that suffering makes you more worthy, or believe that for every good thing in life, there must also be an accompanying “bad”.

Limiting beliefs hold us back in various ways, making us feel like we don’t deserve the success that we’re not good to others and that the world is against us.

To heal and overcome these limiting beliefs you’re going to have to change the way you think. You have to
start being conscious of negative and false beliefs and start shifting to a mindset that actually serves you.

First, you must identify your limiting beliefs. What beliefs are you holding about yourself to prevent you to take action and becoming the best version of yourself.

Self-talk is so important. Your limiting beliefs often occur deep in your subconscious. The more we talk positively to ourselves we can rewire these limiting beliefs. Start by noticing your inner voice. What does it say? You can start writing them
down when they come up. Start replacing them with more empowering thoughts. 

Your life is your responsibility. You choose
to let your circumstances control you and that they are beyond your control. You need to start developing the belief that life happens for you, not to you. Things that are out of our control will happen but we can control how we react to them.

Certainty kills dreams – Toni Robbins.

Instead of thinking about what you will never do, think of what you will do. DREAM BIG.

You are the architect of your life. You are capable of anything. It’s time to stop letting limiting beliefs hold you back.

Creatine Supplement – Should you use it?

Why is Creatine used as a supplement?

Creatine is a natural supplement that is used to improve athletic performance. Creatine supplements increase your muscles phosphocreatine stores, which aids to create more adenosine triphosphate (ATP), which is the key molecule that your cells are using for energy. During exercise, ATP is broken down to produce energy. Creatine supplements increase your phosphocreatine stores which allows you to produce more ATP and more energy to fuel your muscles during high-intensity exercise. So by taking creatine before training it can help the muscles to produce and replenish energy during heavy lifting or intensity training.

Creatine is one of the cheapest, most effective, and safest supplements you can take and it is not only for bodybuilders. It also supports quality of life in older adults, brain health, as well as exercise.

What is Creatine?

Creatine is a substance found naturally in muscle cells. It helps your muscles produce energy during heavy lifting or high-intensity exercise. Creatine shares many similarities with amino acids chemically speaking, they are important compounds in the body that help build protein. Your body can produce creatine from the amino acids glycine and arginine but about half of your body’s creatine stores come from the food you eat, especially red meat and seafood. The rest is made in your liver and kidneys from amino acids.

 

Some benefits of creatine include: 

 

  • helping muscle cells produce more energy
  • improves strength
  • promotes increases in muscle mass as it boost the formation of proteins that create new muscle fibers
  • Creatine can also increase the water content of your muscles, which can quickly increase muscle size.

Does Creatine make you store water?

Yes Creatine can cause your body to store water but this water is stored inside of the muscles cells and not directly under your skin. Creatine alters your body’s stored water content, driving additional water into your muscle cells.

When should you take Creatine Supplement?

There are different opinions on when to take creatine. Taking creatine before a workout can help increase ATP, the primary currency of cellular energy. This means more power available to the muscles and more weight lifted. Creatine  taken after a workout can help replenish nutrients in your muscles. Ultimately, the key is to keep your creatine stores saturated.

Is there different types of Creatine Supplements?

Yes there is but the most common one is ‘Creatine Monohydrate’. This is the most world wide sold creatine supplement and it is the purest form of creatine and most effective.

How much should I take and Do I need to cycle the use? 

The most recommended serving for people is 5 grams of creatine daily or more for a larger person who doesn’t get any benefits of this serving.

You don’t need to cycle creatine. Even after a prolonged use your body will still be able to produce it naturally and there are no proven benefits to cycle the supplement.

*Creatine is totally safe to use but we highly recommend that you’re talking to your coach for recommendations
