A proven strategy top diabetics use to fight procrastination.

Imagine this: you’ve been putting off getting your food plan organized for weeks, maybe even months. You know it needs to be done, but every time you think about it, you just feel overwhelmed and discouraged.

But one day, you finally muster up the courage to tackle it head-on. You take the FREE! 3-day challenge, and you start with snacks. And you know what? You knock it out of the park! Not only did you complete the task, but you did it with ease and grace.

3-Day Challenge

Now you have over a dozen snacks you can grab-n-go whenever you are hungry.

Tired of only making only one or two affiliate sales every month? Beginning to wonder if affiliate marketing is all one big myth? Not sure how to boost your commissions when promoting other people’s products?

I get it. Those were my patients for the longest time. Promising every week they were going to set up a food plan. And many still do that! Some days my patients would eat the right snack or meal. But, they never seemed to gain any traction.

And when they finally did just one little tiny task (like the 3-day challenge), they realized it really wasn’t that hard! That’s the beauty of overcoming procrastination – it’s a self-esteem boost waiting to happen. When you procrastinate, you’re essentially telling yourself that you’re not capable of doing something. But when you take action and complete that task, you’re proving to yourself that you are capable. And that feels pretty darn good, doesn’t it?

In a combined state of curiosity and pacifying me, my patients and I reworked the food plan strategy to incorporate a few of the strategies I’d seen other successful diabetics use. Then I sprinkled in a few of my own.

And whaddaya know? It worked! Excitement doesn’t begin to explain how I felt when patients started lowering their A1c on a regular basis! I was so proud of them! It was just one success that got the ball rolling! Now it’s your turn!

Your motivation begins to move on its own. 

Overcoming procrastination can do wonders for your self-esteem! When you take control of your time and start getting things done, you’ll feel a sense of pride and accomplishment. Not only will you have a sense of satisfaction from completing tasks and reaching your goals, but you’ll also feel more confident in your abilities. By taking small steps and seeing yourself succeed, you’ll start to build a positive self-image of “I CAN do this!”.

When you overcome procrastination, you start to trust yourself more. You’ll see that you are capable of getting things done and that you have the power to make changes in your life. By taking action, you’ll be building a stronger sense of self-worth and self-esteem. If you’re tired of feeling down on yourself and not living up to your potential, it’s time to take control of your time and start taking action. By doing so, you’ll be building a more confident and resilient you!

So, let’s make a pact to stop procrastinating and start building our self-esteem. Here are a few tips to get you started:

  1. Make a scheduled time to sit down and develop a food plan. That might mean breaking it down into smaller, more manageable steps so it feels less overwhelming. And as you complete each step, you’ll feel a sense of accomplishment that will boost your self-esteem.

For example, you want to know what snacks you can eat.  You want a list of those grab-n-go snacks you can buy and keep handy in case you get hungry.

But you don’t have all the tools.  You need to know which foods you like will work for you now and which foods you totally have to avoid. This is why you have to start with the 3-day challenge.

Settle for less to get more done.
  1. Give yourself a reward and celebrate after you have completed the 3-day challenge. No matter how small the effort was to find even 2 snacks you can have without raising your blood sugar, celebrate! Treat yourself to a little something special, or just take a moment to acknowledge how far you’ve come. And that’s good enough!

For example, let’s say you want to join a gym.  But you are procrastinating.  Why?  We don’t care why, we just know you want to join a gym in hopes that you will look and feel better.

Ok, just go online and check out some gyms in your area.  Since you are diagnosed with diabetes, will your insurance pay for your membership?

Hmmm.  So your first take might be to call your insurance company and find out!  There!  Task completed and give yourself a pat on the back for a job well done.

Don’t even think about doing more.  You checked with our insurance and that’s enough!

Additionally, by taking care of ourselves, we become more resilient and better equipped to handle challenges and setbacks, which can also boost our self-esteem.

About the Author

Do you feel frustrated with your medical care? Do doctors spend 5 minutes with you, push you out of the office, with you wondering what's going to happen? Does your insurance deny paying? You're not alone. I'm frustrated, too. This is a growing trend in healthcare. Having seen pre-insurance medicine (yes, my dad was an old country doctor), I grew up watching him spend time with his patients, giving them the best care he had to offer. I saw families trust him to help them through hospitalizations and the next crisis. As a patient advocate, my job is to see that you get the right diagnosis, the right treatment plans, and the right supplies and education to make good decisions about your health. More importantly, I will teach you the tricks of the healthcare trade. We need more healthcare consumer protection, especially for chronic illnesses like diabetes. This is what I am passionate about. I make it happen every day with thousands of patients who now know what I know about beating the healthcare system and getting the best patient care...Patient Best.
