You know that healthy habits make sense, but did you ever stop to think why you practice them?
I’ve heard women, in particular, say this a lot lately. They say, “Why can’t I look like that ?!”, ” I will never look like that!”
Why do we mentally sabotage ourselves? Let’s get something clear. You are unique. You are not meant to be me & I am not meant to be you. We are on this planet as individuals, each of us has a unique finger print that can’t and wont ever be duplicated with any other human being. Ever! So why do you mentally sabotage your mindset with self doubt and in return it starts a domino affect on your health? You are telling your subconscious with out even realizing it that you are not made for greater things. You are telling your subconscious that you can not be sexy, be brilliant and be fantastic. Be happy in your skin.
Everywhere you look — on every billboard, on every social media channel — it seems that there are beautiful, scantily clad women. So it is pushed down our throats that beauty starts from the outside but actually its starts on the inside and radiates outward.
Here’s the thing: if you treat your body like it’s your worst enemy – or not take ownership of your physical wellbeing – you are repelling good health. You’re keeping yourself from being the best you can be in your life , because you dislike your body so much.
You’re basically saying, “I dislike good health. I want to be rid of it.”
Well, wish granted!
Good nutrition is an important part of leading a healthy lifestyle
You’re meant to make a difference in this world ; that’s why you’re here. But you must believe you’re meant for greater things, so you can actually enter a place of mental stability, and eventually, a place of fantastic health. Don’t take yourself out of the game by ignoring your bad relationship with your health.
Here are three common ways that We keep Ourselves Sick. Luckily, you can fix them.
1. Improve your relationship your health
When you decide to improve your relationship with your health, be prepared for people to question and criticize you. Change can be a very difficult thing for many of us to handle. You have the mindset, to step out on faith to get the perfect health that you really wish to have. It could be from grabbing that apple instead of those chips , walking 10 minutes per day, or reading a self help book.
Take Action: Let yourself out of that unhealthy , fast-food, over processed and artificially filled food habit because it’s ruining your life. The only way to create a different outcome is to allow yourself to forgive what’s happened in the past. The past does not have to be your future. You are 100% capable of changing your future health story, so do it.
2. You never step outside your box.
“I can’t afford eat better.”
“I don’t want to spend the money on a new diet book.”
“I wish, someone would just give me the magic pill for my ideal body!”
“I don’t want to purchase another program that isn’t going to work.”
Does any of this sound familiar? The more you focus on what you don’t have, the less likely it is that you’ll ever have it.
Take Action: Focus on what you do have right now. Express gratitude for literally being alive. Now, you have to create a strategy to have what you really want. Set a goal, writing down realistic goals and make yourself a deadline. Take steps to get there. (And don’t quit if it doesn’t work the very first try.)
Or… you can keep focusing on what you lack. Call me in a year and tell me how that’s working out for you.
3. You think health is something your granted with, rather than invest.
You want your health to work for you, so you have to think of everything you eat as an investment. Will eating that cheeseburger build or create that healthy body? Probably not.
Will investing in self-improvement books or a mentorship program? Perhaps, if you do the work and commit to changing old habits.
Take Action: When you’re about to improve your health, think carefully about why you’re about to modify your life with . If that item, service or experience is worth it. Then ask yourself:
- Will it feel like a good investment in 90 days, 6 months, or even a year?
- Will it help you create a healthier you?
- Will it help create a happier you?
- Will this change bring you immense joy and memories that will last forever?
- Will you grow as a result?
Investing in your health will have a high return, personally and professionally. Don’t go foolishly looking for cheap thrills and expect to be in better state of health this time next year. Believe that you’re worthy of investing in yourself and believe you’ll have a return.
Cultivating a healthy mindset
You don’t have to repel health. Instead, build your relationship with it.
Investing in myself by joining a group program for a healthier lifestyle is the best thing I ever did for myself. Committing to my personal growth, speaking with people who has been there and done it, and finding the support of like-minded people was crucial to my success and confidence. I’ve created a group on Facebook called Got Hypothyroidism? Where you have a “safe place” to share progress and chat with one another.
It’s time for you to change your health story and start becoming a healthier you! You can change the game. You can see get a healthier you and change your unhealthy past to make a better future in your life. Make the decision that it will happen for you, and work on your healthy mindset.
Take Action: Create a food journal. Write down everything you eat. Think about what you eat and if it benefits your body. I’m talking old school pen and paper.
Break those chains where you can become a healthier you. Once you see what you eat , you can quickly start to know the area’s in your food journal that you need to make a change.
Yes, it can be frightening. It takes a lot of courage to face your unhealthy habits in such detail. But now you can create a health plan to cut unhealthy habits and bring in the health you desire.
