You can create optimal health and live in happiness easier than you think.
You know your life does not look exactly as you want it to right now. What do you do to make the changes you really want to make?
Before you feel too overwhelmed to proceed thinking there is just no way to move from where you are no to where you want to be, the gaps being too wide to overcome without doing way too much work, take a deep breath and continue reading.
Feel more relaxed now? Great.
You see change happens incrementally. When you make one little change you stick to it far more easily than you ever would if you tried to leap from your current status to your desired end.
You can do anything if it fits into your life right? And you can do it without stressing out, without exhausting yourself and without frustrating yourself because the task appears too difficult for you.
Begin with your big picture goal and then break it down into the small goals you need to reach on the way to the end result.
What do I mean?
Let’s say you want to begin to get healthier by taking care of your body. You choose to eliminate eating bedtime snacks for one month.
Each night when you find yourself doing whatever activity would cause you to grab something to munch on before bed you make a conscious choice to live in the now, in the present moment and distract yourself with an activity that occupies your mind and allows you to forget about eating something you do not really need.
Repeat that new behavior every night for 28 days. Each day you succeed you will increase your motivation to continue that new behavior. And you will do it without causing yourself pain or feelings of deprivation.
I know you can do it if you really want to. You know it too. So what are you waiting for?
Begin it now!
