    Health isn't just about eating right and exercising. It is also about taking care of yourself emotionally and mentally. There is an emotional transformation, an attitude adjustment, that need take place when we strive to transform our physical bodies.

    Henry Ford said, “Whether you think you can, or you think you can’t — you’re right.” Observe and assess your thoughts. Do you notice habitual patterns of negative thinking?  If so, make a conscious decision to replace those negative thoughts with kind or positive thoughts.

    ———————————————————————————

    STOP

    limiting yourself only to what seems possible 

    self sabotaging negative thinking

     

    START

    visualizing a life with limitless possibilities

    making a brand new ending

     

    See in your mind’s eye what you want for yourself and your life. It's not who you are that holds you back; rather it is who you think you're not. See, imagine, dream of the person you want to be. See, imagine, and dream of the life you want to live. Act as if you are that person. Live into your dream. 


    ———————————————————————————

    STOP

    worrying about what lies ahead of you

    waiting; the time will never be just right


    START

    focusing on what lies within you

    realizing the toughest opponent of all is the one inside your head

     

    Being strong sometimes means facing the need for positive life changes head-on. Live positively for your health and happiness. Not only you, but your loved ones, friends, and associates will be inspired.


    ———————————————————————————

    STOP

    making excuses

    relying on others to make you happy


    START

    making everything you want happen

    making your own happiness

     

    You cannot just sit and wait around for someone to solve your problems. You’ve got to get out there and make what you want happen. Otherwise, if you change nothing, then nothing will change. It’s OK to seek the help of others; just don’t expect others to do the work for you. 


    ———————————————————————————

    STOP

    believing the reasons why you can’t do it

    quitting


    START

    celebrating how far you have come; even if you are not where you want to be, you are not where you used to be

    remembering why you started

     

    An optimistic mind notices the opportunities, things to be grateful for, and that even though things may be hard or bad right now they will change once again. The pessimistic mind will stay stuck in inaction, perhaps afraid to change, thinking that his or her situation cannot change, or that change is too hard to be had.


    ———————————————————————————

    STOP

    trying to make other people happy

    letting society tell you how to live

    START

    acknowledging your desires and dreams

    know who you are

     

    What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us. And when we bring what is within us out into the world, miracles happen (Henry S. Haskins).


    ———————————————————————————

    STOP

    stuffing your emotions with food

    dwelling on regrets, there are no do-overs

     

    START

    writing hard and clear about what hurts (Ernest Hemingway)

    doing more of what makes you happy

     

    It is not the future that you are afraid of. It’s repeating the mistakes of the past that makes you anxious. Stop putting your past in the present and ruining your future. Sometimes the smallest step in the right direction ends up being the biggest step of your life. Tiptoe if you must but take the step.

     

    ———————————————————————————

    Refuse to be that person that, like so many others is driving down the same road, years down the line, mournfully longing to go back in time to be given just one more chance to take the road they know they should have taken because they dismissed all possible, extraordinary signs. It’ll never be easier to make the leap and this is your chance; so make the change. Take the road now. (Victoria Erickson)
