5 Steps to a Better Life
Change your won mind for the better this year to achieve your potential…It’s the End of March, but you are still on time!! (Time, can you please slow down?)!
1. Watch your words Missy
The way that we speak to ourselves has a huge impact on our lives and wellbeing. If you are capable of showing affection and giving praise to others, then you’re able to do it for yourself too. Mind your inner language and you’ll reap the rewards.
You can create affirmations for the state you want to be in. Really get excited about this brand new you and bring it in to the present. Say it and say it with feeling as if what you want, you have right now.
2. Change the link
We can adopt unhealthy habits because we associate them with a loved one or a personal hero. Perhaps we link “party food” with happy moments. We may not even realise that the unhealthy habit is our way of being closer to a person or an event that we have loved and lost. You may be holding on to the sleep patterns and alcohol consumption of your student days because life was more fun back then. You can move to a better you. Is it the freedom and the carefree attitude that you’re missing? Look at ways in which you can bring these aspects in to your present day life.
3. Victim to leader
If we feel intimidated by our boss or groups of people, or we somehow feel the victim in certain situations, we can go back in time to when we felt like that. We have the power to change it now.
Go back to the time in your mind when you felt very intimidated and bring in a protector (who or what this is, is up to you). You can rewrite the situation in your mind, psychodynamically. This process will impact on everything in your life, altering the way your mind responds to events as you move from victim to leader.
4. Explore your emotions
Get a journal, and mark down ages in your life when key events took place – both the traumatic and positive.
Look to see when problems started and especially track back and notice if there are any common themes. You may want to look back and see what was going on in your life up to six months before each key event. This will illuminate reasons behind your behaviour.
5. Take self care seriously
Decide that you’re going to look after yourself IMMEDIATELY. This will send a powerful message to your mind that whatever had happened before now, you’re taking a stand as an adult that you’re absolutely worth looking after, right now. This means upgrading your nutrition and the way you nourish your soul.
Do exercise that actually makes you smile but do move more please. Get excited about life and treat yourself more.
Make some time to yourself and acknowledge how incredible you are and that you deserve better, in the very moment.
