😎 3 Simple actions with big payoffs – I call them “Future Focused Actions” 🌞🎧🏃
Hey! It’s Stephana and in this video, I am going to share my personal “future-focused action steps” that YOU can use to create big health and fitness returns in your own future.
I know we are all out there hustling every day, building our careers and families, and lives. We’re busy living for today!
The future can seem far away.
But the truth is, the future is so much closer than you think!
Before I get into the actual steps, let me introduce myself in case you don’t already know me. I’m Stephana Johnson, the founder of Yogilachi – the perfect blend of yoga, Pilates and tai chi helping busy people drop the extra weight and look and feel their best.

Here’s something to think about: The future is literally the sun coming over the horizon every morning! Every day gives you a new opportunity to make your future bigger and brighter.
What you choose to do today can have a huge impact on tomorrow. And these choices don’t have to be big or painful.
→ This week I’m challenging you to identify and commit to taking THREE FUTURE-FOCUSED ACTIONS.
These are things you can do two or three days a week that will propel you to greater success – not just for TODAY – but over the long term.
I am not talking about huge, life-changing measures here.
Rather, think in terms of small actions that pack a big punch!
Let me show you what I mean.
Stress is an unfortunate reality for most of us – and is pretty much unavoidable these days.
For me, some of the stress in my life is related to juggling life as a single mom head of household, educating my boys, running a business and coaching clients now shifting to all virtual, etc.
And even though I can’t – and don’t necessarily want to – change the realities that cause me stress …
I know that how I choose to deal with it can make a huge difference in how I feel now AND how it affects me over the long term.
Taking healthy steps to manage my stress will help to fill up my “personal retirement bank” in the future.
So here’s my three-step action plan! (And you’ll build yours based on what YOU need in your own life.)
FIRST, I’ve decided I’m going to add a short, leisurely walk to my schedule three times a week. Not a long walk–I’m talking 30 minutes, max. And not a fitness-focused walk, either! My plan is not to focus on fitness but instead just to BREATHE, clear my mind, and let go of any stress.
SECOND, I’m going to make it a point for these walks to take place OUTSIDE.] That’s because experts tell us that NATURE has tons of stress-reduction benefits. Studies show that spending time outdoors can reduce inflammation, improve mental well-being, and even help us to sleep better!
Plus, being outside means getting some natural vitamin D from the sun. This is great for you in small doses! Vitamin D can even boost your immune system, which definitely plays a role in how your body responds to stress.
FINALLY, during my walk, I’m going to forego my usual podcasts/audiobooks/music and instead listen to the sounds of nature! The sounds of wind blowing through the trees, birds chirping, or the crackling of leaves can help you release tension.
To repeat, here are my three actions: I’ll be de-stressing by taking short, leisurely walks outside a few days a week while listening to the soothing sounds of music or nature.
It sounds simple … because it IS. But these small walk breaks make all of the difference and will pay off now — and in the future!
