Hey there friends. I’d like your help. We are working on a way to change ourselves. Really and truly in the New Year. Not resolutions that can be broken, but a plan. A real plan. On my Facebook page for the blog I am making a few posters about ways to help yourself, but I want you to sit quietly and think about all the ways you are blocking yourself from your greatest potential. Whether it is weight loss, healthy eating, negative thinking, depression and/or anxiety, excuses for why you don’t leave the house, excuses for why you don’t exercise, well you name it, you and only you know how to change yourself. The fact is, we can go to all the therapists in the world, but until we are ready to make that change, that commitment, we are simply going to continue hoping what they tell us will work one day.
Wake up and open the curtains. Remember my last post about getting more light? Hint, you had to watch the video I posted. Clean your room and get rid of anything you are not using. It makes you feel better. I don’t know why or how, but it does. Make ROOM in your life for things you need. You are getting rid of things you no longer need in your life. I guess it could be the symbolism, but it really does work. Fluff your comforter, change your sheets. Go to bed earlier. I personally know how hard this one is. I am erm a night owl. Nevertheless, I am going to be shutting down 30 minutes earlier and working on a new routine.
Get your refrigerator ready for good food. Throw out the Christmas fruitcake…no not your relatives, the sweets you still have. Wash and prep veggies for the week. Make your list of smoothie items or simply use these greens I use everyday. I use berry but you can try orange or whatever you like. It actually is cheaper than buying all the veggies to throw in the blender. I also take my supplements for my pain and drink turmeric milk or tea. I immediately change my thinking even if I am in pain to thinking that the tea or whatever I am using is helping me. It really is helping but I try hard not to concentrate on what is wrong. I work daily at this. Do NOT dwell in the negatives. Let the negative thoughts pass by, but don’t stay there.
I am also working on a yoga plan as well as a getting out of the house more plan. This is very important if you have fibromyalgia and tend to sit too much. Stop dwelling. Just stop. Make a plan. If I can do it, you can too. So let’s go. 2015. It’s almost here. Move more. Eat better. Do good things. No resolutions you won’t keep, but goals. Gather your supplies, your buddies, if you don’t have buddies, get out of the house and make some. NO excuses! Ok, pep talk over…and today wasn’t even Motivational Monday.
