You are here to feed your body and mind with good information. You are an active learner, and you are trying to achieve all that you can achieve while you are here in this world.
The trick is to make yourself absolutely believe in this, without a shadow of a doubt.
It may seem a little excessive, but it’s not. You are going to be a better person for trying and succeeding with your goals. We may not all have the same goals in mind when we start off on this path to wellness, but there are certain things that we can all do the same that are simply beneficial to every and anyone who tries them.
Make Yourself Goals I like to use a whiteboard to write down my short and long term goals, but a piece of paper will work too. I usually compile this into a personal mission statement.
Start off very broad, with key elements you would like to focus on like health, eating, exercise, and mind. Then from these pick a few things that you feel you can do to achieve them.
For example, for exercise I would write down go hiking one day a week, get at least 3 days of working out a week.
For eating I would write, make 2 new recipes from my new cook book, don’t eat one fast food product, and have a blend every morning.
Having these easy tasks laid out will make it a lot easier to achieve and stay focused on your path.
Constantly re-evaluate what you wrote down. It really feels good to cross off things that you’ve done on the list, or increase health activities to greater number.
For example after getting on track with my exercise routine, I may change my goals to: lift weights for 45 minutes 3 times a week, do one hike a week that lasts over an hour, go for a 30 minute walk 2 times a week.
You will also notice that you will drop certain activities out of your list when you have changed your ideas of what works and what doesn’t work for you. Keep in mind that you always want to challenge yourself. When you reach your goals, you know that you have progressed.
Never be satisfied with the level your at though, continually be looking for newer and better ways to live a healthy life.
Thought process requires planning, attitude, and personal commitment to the goals. Like any skill, proper thought process requires learning, and effort for a extended period of time to stay focused on the decision, and goals, but in the end, rewards anybody who takes action in their own thoughts.
