Healthy Decisions

Thursday, September 01, 2011

Make healthy decisions easier. Practice reframing the choices you give yourself. When faced with a doughnut, don't ask yourself "Do I want that chocolate-frosted doughnut or not?" The only reward in that question is the doughnut and our bodies have been hard-wired over years of evolution to seek rewards such as food and sex to keep us alive.

When the brain identifies a reward, it shifts into a state of intense focus and drive. You can use that drive to your advantage simply by changing the reward in any given situation. Make the choice "Do I want to be one step closer to my dream body or not?" It's easier to go after something you want than something you don't want.

Monday, August 29, 2011

Practice self control - your willpower muscle will become less flabby, so you have the strength you need to stick with a weight loss program.

    Will power does get stronger the more you use it emoticon I also like to stay "willing" to do what it takes. Like willing to pass up the cake, willing to eat my salad.

    True true. I learned long ago as I complained about having no willpower, that the will to do anything comes from you actually doing it. Your willpower increases as you practice self-control, as you said.

We all know how great it feels when we accomplish something we set out to do!
