Writing helps the brain
Wednesday, January 23, 2013
I am really getting into the zone of writing and am noticing that my writing is getting me in touch with myself. Good stuff.
One thing I noticed today is that my responses to my various stimuli in my mind have changed. I have become more of an observational person and am learning to push myself through the negative self talk. This is groundbreaking to a dramatic personality. I always waited for when:
1. The body felt 100% without aches to workout - this would allow procrastination.
2. The day wasn't too filled with annoyances or activity because I could then devote 100% to being healthy and fit.
3. Nothing bad happened in my day (no bad calls, no surprising bills or emails) so I could enjoy my working out.
All of these things above were simply excuses to delay the perceived pain and aches of working out. Well, after working through a lot of these 'issues' this week, I noticed today that my knees and feet felt better and my limping which I've had for years began to be less. Amazing. I am working through the pain and realizing that I can do this.
Great day today. Ended it at whole foods picking up decent stuff and a treat for myself just because I wanted - 1 cookie. I loved it and enjoyed every bite. Yeah, just one. Satisfied until another amazing day which may be tomorrow. The brain is powerful indeed.
