3 Powerful Ways To Regain Control Of Your Health And Your Life
I'm all too familiar with the feeling of being STUCK, almost paralyzed, in my health process. Even though I know perfectly well what to do to feel better and eat better, I just sit there - pure inertia.
What prevents us from just getting up and doing what it takes to feel great?
Having pondered these and similar ideas rather obsessively for the last 15 years, Iíve got a few thoughts on the subject.
Generally our decisions to overeat, binge, and just get down-right lazy about health, are triggered by events or circumstances in our personal life and immediate environment. Perhaps itís a communication upset, a loss of someone or something significant, feeling unproductive or without clear purpose. Sometimes thereís someone in our environment bringing us down. No matter what the circumstances, we cannot separate diet and food issues from our emotional situation or physical environment.
We canít always predict when life is going to throw us a fastball. The point of power is in how we choose to react to the events and circumstances of our lives.
Here are three powerful secrets that can put you back in control:
1. Take a Walk
Sounds simple enough. But when youíre sitting in that moment of paralysis, it might feel like one of the biggest chores imaginable. You donít have to strap on jogging shoes or make an event out of this. Donít worry about giving yourself the pressure of gym memberships or yoga commitments. Just get outside and walk!
Honestly, few things will do more good for you than this simple trick. Break a sweat, boot it up a hill, and practice your buttocks squeezes while youíre at it.
No matter what state of mind youíre in, no matter what is going on around you, taking a walk is going to help. In fact, the worse youíre feeling, the more it will help. Not only will you feel better, but this will make a huge difference in your energy level and overall motivation.
2. Do a Detox
Food is a marvelously complicated subject, and one of the best things you can do to break that cycle of addictive food habits is to detox.
When youíre in an eating rut, taking a day to fast, followed by several days of cleansing raw foods and loads of fresh water makes a huge difference in energy levels, self-confidence, and, yes, it helps drop a few un-wanted, un-needed pounds.
3. Find a Supportive Community
Being a part of a community, a supportive environment, is vital to success. No one is an island, and thereís power in numbers. Being a part of a supportive community is going to offer you the companionship, sisterhood and support youíve been looking for. Prepare for fun and success!
No matter what endeavor youíre undertaking, doing it with the support of a community, a buddy, a sister, is guaranteed to boost your results.
