So far the focus has been on nutrition, identifying trigger foods and making sure you keep a record of your progress with a journal. This is all physical and there is another aspect to consider in a healthy lifestyle, your mental health. It doesn’t matter how much exercise you do, how clean you are eating, if what you feed your mind is negative your outer result will be negative as well. You know, garbage in garbage out. It is actually more important to feed your mind the positive thoughts and the serenity that it needs to propel your body to the same level.
This is where praying, yoga, meditation, a time out for YOU helps. We get so busy we our daily routine, work, life and everything else that most of us don’t even take 15 minutes out of the day to just breathe and meditate. Get in the habit of starting having your first thoughts and last ones before you go to sleep positive ones. The best way to do that is to practice feeding your mind powerful thoughts that comes only with practice. Your physical muscle is not the only part of your body that needs training, your spiritual muscle needs training as well.
You train your spiritual muscle by reading powerful and uplifting books, praying and meditating on the Bible, and taking the time to just stand still in silence.
Your assignment today is to make sure you set aside at least 30 minutes every day in total silence. For moms I know it can be a little challenging. In this case use the bathroom if you have to or a walk in closet. Use this time to refresh and recharge everyday. Before going to bed read 10 pages on something motivating, make your last thoughts for the day positive ones. When you wake up tomorrow instead of laying in bed going down the list of things you have to do for the day in your mind, start by thinking carefully about 5 things you are grateful for then you go about your day.
