25. [Mini Dose] Tiny Actions to Feel Better and Increase Your Joy
[00:00:00] I’m not the guru you are. What can you do to take back control of your health of your nutrition? Because trust me, nobody is in charge except you nobody’s in charge of your own health. Nobody cares more about your own. Then you probably made, if we’re working together, can you relate to a situation where you don’t feel good enough where you don’t feel worthy, where you need to inject more moments of joy and laughter and Venus into your life.
[00:00:41] Take a tiny step of action from where you are now to where you want to be.
[00:00:51] Hi there. Welcome to the field better now, podcast. I’m your host, Jackie Balca. And if you’ve arrived here, no, [00:01:00] there is something in here to spark yourself to create a bit of. In your health in your career, in your relationships, both yourself. And for those around you, just one small action step at a time with so much love and gratitude to be your guide.
[00:01:17] Let’s get started.
[00:01:25] Jackie back.
[00:01:30] Hey everyone, Jackie, he is so excited this week. I am broadcasting from, do you know where I am? I am in one of the most incredible heart centered spiritual places that I’ve been all over the world. I am in the sunny Acapulco, Mexico. And I’m just so grateful to be here. Today’s podcast is going to be focused on moments of joy and how to take [00:02:00] control of your health wherever you’re at.
[00:02:02] I’m really take one tiny step forward to get you to feeling better and Bisha and Visha, or to finally feel better. Like so many of my clients come to me. Well, many of you may know already about me is that I’ve got two master’s degrees and master of human nutrition. I’m an award-winning nutritionists. I am so well credentialed.
[00:02:27] I’ve done every course and certification that there really is. I feel in functional medicine, in energy medicine and functional nutrition, however, not so long ago, it wasn’t like. I was so burned out. I was so exhausted. I was that yelling, screaming, irritated, moody mom, wife, friends partner. My immune system was so low.
[00:02:51] I was severely debilitated and fatigued from viruses. Life was not. But I hit it really well because I was a very [00:03:00] successful marketing executive. So broadcasting here from Acapulco and investing further in my health and in my credentials may seem indulgent to some, but it is so important to me. It’s so important to my mission.
[00:03:16] And it is the reason that I’m so passionate about making sure that people always know what to do to take one tiny action step forward, to feeling. It really is my mission to serve you and help you feel better. Not so long ago, I was so severely fatigued and riddled with so much anxiety that dysfunction.
[00:03:40] I had trouble even collecting my children from school because they would even want to go to the park after school. And the thought of facing another human was terrifying to me. To some that might seem so easy to pick up your kids from school and to hang out with the other moms while your children socialize and have fun with their friends and really burn [00:04:00] off even more energy.
[00:04:01] To me, that was the most terrifying experience. One of the things I like to talk about in my practice is really helping people to take that tiny action step forward that they might need. That makes a difference. That creates a situation of being empowered instead of disempowered. I still remember the day, years ago when I was working with one of my mentors and the commitment that we had was that when I picked up my children from school, instead of running away or even.
[00:04:34] I always sent my husband to do that so that I didn’t have to go. I was to pick them up from school and to hang out in the park. The day I did that was so pivotal. I still remember it vividly. I see this all the time in my practice and everybody’s different because we’re all at a different stage of our health.
[00:04:57] I was talking to a client this week. She [00:05:00] is riddled with anxiety, with overwhelmed, with feelings of not being worthy with feelings that other people don’t want to spend time with her, her tiny action. Step her moment to take control of her own health and nutrition to get her moving on the path from where she is now.
[00:05:22] To where she wants to be was an action that she came up with to invite some neighbors around. She told me she’d been wanting to do this for some time, but it was completely overwhelming. We broke it down. Imagine instead of inviting them for a big dinner that you have to prepare, for instance, You mentioned, inviting them for a meal, a big elaborate meal that you have to prepare for and organize and plan the menu in advance and all the, all that time you spend thinking about that and the worry and anxiety that might brew.
[00:05:57] How about instead inviting. [00:06:00] Just for a short amount of time for a cup of tea. For example, that seems like a much more reasonable request than a big elaborate Dina. But my client was very happy. She agreed to knock on the neighbor’s door, invite them around for a cup of tea. And we agreed that she would have a destination that she had to be at shortly after their arrivals so that she could make sure that she started and finished, completed the assigned.
[00:06:34] We are up to 95% more likely to succeed. If we have an, a grade commitment and we are accountable to somebody, that’s how I get clients results in my practice. It’s incredible. The transformation or the lack of transformation that you can get. From just this small pot of a protocol, it is incredible. The difference between [00:07:00] results and not getting results just by using accountability.
[00:07:05] I love accountability. And you know what, the moment I received her message, which is part of the process to let me know when she’s completed her action. Step, the moment I received her message that said I’ve completed my action. I invited them around. They’re coming on Monday. I was elated. I was so excited.
[00:07:29] So imagine if I was excited as the guide, how excited she would be, how excited her subconscious mind would be, which is like a five-year-old child that she had took control of this situation, the anxiety and the overwhelm that was crippling her, that she took back control of herself. And completed that action.
[00:07:51] So we celebrated and I’m super excited to hear how that cup of goes. I know it’s going to be amazing and a really pivotal [00:08:00] step in her transformation from feeling bad to finally feeling better. You see, I’m not the group. She is, I’m not the guru you are. What can you do to take back control of your health of your nutrition?
[00:08:17] Because trust me, nobody is in charge except you nobody’s in charge of your own health. Nobody cares more about your own health than you. Um, probably I’m if we’re working together, to be honest, can you relate to a situation where you don’t feel good enough where you don’t feel worthy, where you need to inject more moments of joy and laughter and happiness into your life?
[00:08:47] Take a tiny step of action from where you are in. To where you want to be, that could be looking at cleanup. That is such a great one that I really help all of my moms and clients. I [00:09:00] really believe I know it costs money. I know you could do it yourself, but booking that action and taking back to our. Well, maybe more, my house is three and a half, two hours of bliss.
[00:09:12] You will really enjoy that. And it will pay for itself in droves because your creativity will come back. You’ll start getting ideas. One of those might be a way to save money or make money. Trust me. And once this momentum comes of bliss and joy in your life, it will be flowing. So we want the spiral to be moving in the right direction.
[00:09:33] Upwards, not a downward spiral. I don’t like that was filed. Some other awesome examples are hanging out in nature, going for a walk booking, a Pilates class, curling up on the couch and reading a Jackie Collins. Maybe it’s leaving work early, just because I did that sometimes. And I absolutely loved walking home from work in the sunshine in [00:10:00] the middle of the day.
[00:10:01] It feels so naughty, but it’s really such a treasure and you’re in control here. Nobody else is if you are overworked and exhausted, if you’re feeling burnt out, this message is for you. Take action. Seek out more moments of joy, collect your children from school and go the long way home, whether it’s in the car or you’re walking, just so you get to have some more of those random chats, ask someone what they loved about their data.
[00:10:34] When you’re walking past a homeless person or someone asking for money, open your purse and give what you can. All of these things, um, moments of joy and bliss and more we’ll come back to you. More abundance will come back to you than you can ever imagine. I am so passionate about people having more moments of joy in their life and taking action [00:11:00] towards moving you from feeling bad, to feeling better.
[00:11:03] Really, my key message here is that you are the guru. Nobody else is in control of your own health, but yes. What can you do today, tomorrow this week? What commitment can you make to yourself? To me to feeling better? What tiny action step can you do? And if you think about this, you can come up with things that are going to make you feel better.
[00:11:34] And I’ve given you lots of examples, take back control. And the more you practice that it’s like a muscle, it needs working. If you don’t use it, you’re going to lose it. So have fun with taking tiny action steps and including more moments of joy of bliss of laughter into your day. Because life. It’s precious.
