We don't always follow a straight, smooth line when we work towards our health goals. It's ok when it curves here and there and presents bumps and obstacles. One thing for sure; I will not give up on my goal to be healthy and at a weight that is right for my body.
Have you ever done a health reset? It's a great way to kickstart your journey into a healthy lifestyle, and you might also become more aware of how you rely on certain foods or alcohol to relax, soothe or even numb yourself.
For me, my health is my number one focus; the weight loss is an indicator I'm eating right for my body at this time. The weight loss IS a motivator for sure, but it is not my main focus...it is mainly a sign I'm moving towards optimal health.
...you might have fallen into the habit of noticing the stuff you didn't do, the stuff you should do, or the stuff you're not good at.
We often live our lives on autopilot and and lose touch with ourselves...with who we are and what we really need or want.
I'm shifting gears to focus my energy on what I believe to be the most important aspect of our lives: our thoughts.
Some of us have been changing ourselves for others for so long that we don’t even realize we’ve become life-long chameleons!
Yes…even if you're an extrovert who is highly successful and functions fully in society…you too, might have self-esteem issues.
I’ve discovered a new way to journal. I still write out my thoughts, but now, I turn to my voice recorder on my phone when I need to have a good talk with myself.
It might sound weird, but when you chat with yourself out loud, with purpose, AND you record yourself on a voice app, it can be life changing.
