My dream-self...

Monday, January 14, 2013

I listened to a podcast today on dreaming up our future selves. And focusing on a positive, healthy, future vision of myself. my dream self...

I'm able to handle stress with resiliency and strength. And when stress comes, I have lots of non-food soothing strategies to cope: seeing friends, talking to friends, meditating, journaling, exercising, knitting, reading, etc.

I eat seated, slowly and mindfully, when I'm hungry.

I feel my feelings and sit with them when I'm not hungry. Even uncomfortable feelings like grief, anger, sadness, frustration, fear, etc.

I wake each day full of energy in a fit body.

I wear all the clothes in my closet and they fit really well.

I say yes to social engagements because I trust myself to enjoy the people and eat in a way that supports well-being.

I get lots of exercise, both planned and unplanned, because I love it.

I get lots of rest, because I make it a priority, and because I sleep soundly through the night (from eating well and exercising regularly).

I shop for and prepare delicious, healthy meals.

It's fun to imagine this me. And I think she's almost here!

    Nice work!
You really made me think... 'wearing ALL the clothes in your closet' - I may not have done that since I was a child... never thought about it until you mentioned this. It is so 'normal' for me to own a lot of clothes that I don't wear because they are the 'wrong' size... too big, too small...

    Such a nice vision! That's not only your dream-self. It's your near-future-self, too!
