How do you achieve and maintain a positive outlook?
I was asked how I keep a smile on my face (most often than not, LOL). Simple; I try not to sweat the small things and things I can't control. I exercise, which helps with stress relief, laugh often, and most importantly let things roll off me like water off a ducks' back. Smile!
One problem people have about staying positive is that they will quit when it hurts the worst - when it takes more effort to stay positive. Guess what? That's what weight loss feels like. When it hurts the worst, when you're hungriest, you are actually feeling weight leaving your body. Enjoy it!
Newsflash! It sucks losing weight! Let's be real, people. It hurts, and eating less leaves us tired and cranky. Think of it like this though: No energy? Good! No motivation? It's working! This is what you stay positive about: All that weight you're losing in between bad moods. :-D
TODAY i TURNED 67 YEARS YOUNG AND THAT I WILL KEEP SECRET. LOVE LIFE, LIVE LONG, BE KIND.
Neuro=Brain, Liguistic=Words. It means changing what a word means to you. Hunger, Exercise, Diet... These are not words that are positive to us. Change what it means! Hunger is just feeling the fat leaving the body. That's what it feels like. Enjoy it!
There are things in life that we can change and things that we can't. Change those that can and don't let the others get you down. You can only do what you can do - no more and no less. Just make sure you do the best that you can. :)
The key is to take the time to relax. This journey is all about you taking care of you.
Don't allow your focus to be only upon your long range goal. Be sure to enjoy the smaller victories that you experience along the way. Always take the time to spend time focusing upon those who are most important to you.
When making a mistake, own up to it, apologize for it, learn from it, and move on. Do not dwell in the past as you will never heal.
