...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.
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.
I want to feel good about me. I want to feel proud of my accomplishments, confident in who I am as a person and energized enough to follow my dreams and achieve my goals. Why? Because it feels good, and who doesn't want to feel happy?
The visual reminder of my tracker, which I see multiple times a day, is not only a reminder and motivation/encouragement, but as the year progresses, it becomes a sense of accomplishment.
A lot of people think exercise has to be really hard or a challenge, and although getting your heart rate up and building muscle requires work and is beneficial to your body, getting moving doesn’t have to be like that.
My rising resting heart rate is like an alarm that alerts me to the poor environment I'm providing for my heart.
