Don’t Wait For Monday

Unknown

If you’ve ever started a diet or made a new commitment to do just about anything, you’re likely quite familiar with choosing the BIG day to begin.

Maybe some of these sound familiar:

  • It’s my New Years Resolution. I’ll start on January 1st.
  • I’ll wait until after the weekend.
  • It’s a 12 week program so after my vacation is a better starting time.
  • I’ll go back to school when I earn enough money.
  • I’ll start once I get ….
  • Now just isn’t the best time for me.

Excuses.

Little lies that chip away at the life you really want for yourself.

They give you permission to continue poor Self Care.

They keep you stuck in what you think is a safe place.

Today is the only important day to take care of yourself and that includes moving forward with your desires.

Don’t make a decision in November to take care of yourself in January.

Take care of yourself today.

Don’t wait for Monday

Remember Who You Are

It’s easy to identify strongly with your body because it’s tangible and visible.

Perhaps it’s equally easy to identify with your thoughts or emotions because they’re readily available and sometimes all consuming.

It’s not so easy to remember who you really are, especially in chaos.

You’re not your body, mind, or emotions.

You are the One watching your thoughts and feeling your emotions.

Your body is your vehicle for participation.

In moments of isolation, confusion, or havoc re-connect with the watcher.

This is the part of you that holds the big picture.

Get some space between you and what is troubling. In the space you can refocus.

No need to be overly attached to any physical condition, mental trappings, or emotional turmoil.

The drama is in the up close perspective.

Remember who you are. Create some space. Redirect your attention.

Love Your Body … Love Your Life : Momentum

WHICH WAY IS YOUR MOMENTUM GOING?

Newton’s Law of Motion – An object in motion stays in motion.

​Until… it’s acted upon by an external source.

The motion makes it easier to stay in motion because of momentum.
Which way is your momentum going or do you even have momentum?
Are you moving towards your goals or in the opposite direction?

Example: You’ve been eating well and are being fairly conscious of what you consume. Then you go on vacation and you give yourself permission to eat what you want. When you get home you continue to eat the same way you ate on vacation but you’ve picked up momentum in this area and are getting more and more habitual with your practice of eating what you want.

So now, you have a choice. Do you continue to let the momentum carry you in the direction of unconscious eating or do you STOP, and choose differently. In order to do this you have to make a conscious choice to be the force that acts upon the object in motion. In this case the object is YOU eating willy nilly.

Once you make the decision to change your course of action then your momentum will be lost. In this case it’s a good thing, because you want to stop that fast moving train and turn it around.

Now you have the opportunity to build momentum in a new direction. Do it by moving one foot in front of the other. Take small actionable steps towards eating healthier and more consciously:

-Drink one more glass of water a day
-eat 2 more fruits and vegetables a day
-decide to have only one treat every day instead of three

After a few days you’ll begin to build momentum in the direction of eating healthy again and more quickly regain focus on your goals.

Getting momentum on your side will effect the gap between you and what you want, just be aware of your direction.
