One Year No Beer Podcast Episode 025 – Mindset Shifting with Pat Divilly
Are you worried that your January is going to be boring without alcohol? Here at One Year No Beer, Dry January is where the fun starts. It’s easy to believe that you need alcohol to have fun and relax. That’s something that you’ve been learning since childhood. But the truth is that you can retrain your brain and learn to enjoy your social engagements without alcohol.
It’s a common strategy to stay away from social events during January, then use the events that you’ve missed as an excuse to live it up in the coming months. But you don’t have to avoid social occasions or celebrations just because you’re not drinking, and doing so turns the idea that life without alcohol is boring into a self-fulfilling prophecy. It doesn’t have to be that way. You can go out, be involved and social, and enjoy yourself without alcohol.
“It’s all around giving people a sense of belief and a sense of belonging.”
Today’s guest is Pat Divilly, an Irish fitness expert, writer, and entrepreneur. We invited Pat to the podcast to talk about how to think differently about things like health, fitness, and mindset. Pat talks to us about mindset shifting, and why some people succeed while other people struggle. He explains that personal training is about more than just giving someone a plan, and how important it is to understand why people behave the way they do and how they can change their patterns.
Pat talks about how people often resign themselves to feeling miserable while they’re on a diet plan or exercise plan, and how important it is to learn to enjoy the journey so that reaching your fitness goal becomes a bonus to the achievements that you’re making along the way. Pat explains that many people focus on perfection, or on comparing themselves to other people. The trick is to focus on progress instead. Rather than comparing yourself to someone else and feeling like you fall short, compare yourself to you yesterday, and focus on doing just a little better or a little more today than you did yesterday.
Pat also gives us some top tips for fitness. For training, he says, pick something that you can enjoy and stay consistent with. When it comes to nutrition, focus on adding one good habit to your routine, like making sure that you drink enough water every day. Once you have that habit in place, add a new habit. Don’t set the bar so high that you can’t clear it – just improve one thing at a time.
