Magic Mirror

Wednesday, February 27, 2013

I read another blog post who suggested looking at yourself in the mirror for 5 minutes and only think positive things. If a negative thought creeps in, you have to start all over. I decided to try it and low and behold, I couldn't do it. I immediately began to criticize every inch of my body. Realizing how negative my view of myself was a little frightening. I didn't know how I was sabotaging myself with all that negative talk. I felt defeated when I couldn't do the exercise. To change my thinking, I had to tell myself all the wonderful things this body has allowed me to do and as I get healthier and fitter, it has allowed me to do so much more.

  Hmm, I did not think the exercise would be hard, but yours is the second blog that said this. As you repeat the exercise you should let us know if it really gets better the healthier you get. Thank you for sharing.
