In article one of this series we realized that our thoughts can manifest into bodily issues. In article two we realized that when we decide to make change in our physical self it’s not because we aren’t already perfect, it’s because human consciousness loves to create. So now that we know all of this, how do we make mental change in order to achieve happy physical change? Well, the key is to find someone who can help you get to the roots of those original thought hurdles and help you learn to think differently.
Is it really that simple? Yes it is. I can honestly say that sometimes thought processes just need a little tweaking in order to achieve a complete understanding of who you are, where you are stuck, and why. Have you dieted, exercised and cut carbs to the point of massive frustration? Have you mentally grappled with doing what you know is best for your body yet still end up feeling as if you are being punished? If you struggle with issues like these, then you need help really digging into those energy root issues and implementing a total thought remodel.
Bottom line here is that you need to change the way you think even before starting a healthy weight loss program. Simply convincing ourselves that this is all for our own good is not enough. If you are miserable with your eating plan and with each bite try to convince yourself it’s “all for your own good” you will continue to struggle. But if you can get to the roots of your relationship with food and exercise, you can find effective ways to view the process which will make life a whole lot easier.
Sounds too good to be true? I assure you it’s not. Think about it this way, the more you negatively talk about something the more you feel and focus on that negative situation. Trash talk a job you dislike and it will make the experience even more intolerable, right? But find the good in the job, find the roots of your frustration, change your routine (and thoughts) to alleviate that frustration and all of a sudden the job seems much easier. Same holds true for weight loss. Keep telling yourself it’s hard, it’s miserable, it’s depriving, it’s slow going, then it will be. Keep telling yourself you hate exercise and you’ll grow to hate every step, every drop of sweat, every weight lifted. But pull apart those negative ideas and morph them into positive ones and the going will inherently become much easier. But the key here is that the thoughts have to be true and heartfelt, not just mantras to help you power through something you feel is miserable.
