I know I feel better when I take time to exercise and eat right. What do you have about excuses?
We all have excuses! The bottom line is you. Do you want to live a healthy life? If you do, then you have to do what it takes to do it. We can all find things to do instead of taking care of ourselves. It is often much easier to focus on others, then ourselves. If we do not take care of ourselves we become someone who, we do not want to be. It is horrible, to be uncomfortable in your own skin!! In order to feel good long term we have to do the right thing moment by moment. The moment you think,” I don’t feel like it”……say to yourself ……”I am going to do it! I promised myself I was going to be healthy and I am going to! Let my YES be YES! “
Thoughts are what get us to act or not. If you have a passing thought, like an excuse, you can nurture that thought and it will grow or you can dismiss the thought and intentionally do what you set out to do!
Thought + dismiss thought = controlled thought (do the right thing)
Thought +thought +thought=craving or feeling
Craving or feeling +thought=action (give in to excuse)
To control your excuses you have to control your thinking. If you want to be healthy then when you have an excuse simply combat it with; No! I am going to stick to my health plan! Your success or failure is largely determined by how you let yourself think.
