Hi there! I hope you’re having an awesome day so far.
- Do you ever wake up in bed and instantly tell yourself your fat? Or you wished you hadn’t eaten so much the day before?
- Do you ever bash yourself first thing? Maybe you walk into the bathroom and look at your stomach to see if it’s as flat as you want it to be?
- Or maybe you hop on your cell phone first thing to look at OTHER people’s lives.
These things are not wrong. They’re human nature! Once you become aware that you are doing these things you can start to change so you start your day in a way that sets you up for the way you WANT to feel.
Tomorrow, and from now on – I challenge you to wake up & the second those negative thoughts pop in take a deep breath. Tell yourself the OPPOSITE of what you were thinking (you might even want to write a positive thought in/on your alarm to remind you).
This one, simple, kind of silly thing can TOTALLY change the course of your day and how you treat yourselves.
When we bash ourselves first thing in the morning, that ADDS up over time to hating our bodies, and treating them like crap.
Change your course! Change your attitude. Eventually, your actions will change & so will your BODY.
What we focus on gets bigger. For example – you stub your toe. As long as you’re thinking about it, you will feel the pain. The second you get distracted your pain will diminish until you totally forget about it.
Instead of walking into the bathroom and checking out your stomach; look yourself in the eye and say your name, “________, you are beautiful. You are worthy of feeling amazing.” Even if you DON’T believe it.
I totally get that this sounds cheesy – I’m right there with you. It feels so good though, and the changes we can make using this kind of thinking is incredible. So trust me ;), and trust this process.
Let me know in the comments below: are you going to try this? Is this something you need to work on? I would love to hear what you think!!
