Changing the track in my head

Thursday, September 15, 2016

I keep hearing ... be kinder to yourself, don't let yourself get down, and is it really that bad?

HOW do I stop that track that is playing in my head this week?
HOW do I change the tune?

I started a gratitude journal.
I acknowledged my gain and created a SMART goal for the week dealing with it.

and now, I'm going for a walk to help clear my head.

    Reprogramming our minds can be a difficult thing to do. Life long traits and habits along with life stories of things that have happened to make us feel a certain way about ourselves. For me, one of the things that helps me to lose weight is to do what I need to do each day but instead of focusing on me I venture out and try to comment to others on their triumphs. It's very inspirational to me and helps me get through my day that I'm not alone.

    Loving yourself, your entire self, good and bad is difficult, but not impossible.

    With your writing.. Write yourself a Dear Self paper. Write down all the things you are unhappy about and wish to move on from. It could be a bad relationship, a memory, whatever it is.. write it down. Then write down what you'd like to accomplish.

    After you've finished, read it out loud to yourself and then either bury it or burn it.

    Putting past behind us is very important for the (future).

    My fav quote- If you always do what you've always done you'll always get what you've always gotten. Set new heights, new adventures and a better you for the future!
