Let me share a little secret with you, “this game is 90% mental.” As someone privy to women’s internal struggles to be fit, I have learned that managing our thoughts is vital in the being healthy fight. How you spin your progress, history and future can be instrumental to your success.
Where are you in your mental management?
- Do you see opportunity or denial?
- Do you refocus your attention after a set back?
- Do you celebrate and reward your successes?
- Do you have any “tricks” to move around a poor attitude?
- Have you practiced mantras or positive maxims?
- Are you aware of your self talk?
- Do you believe you can succeed?
Being skilled at managing our thoughts fuels our progress. And like any skill, each of these can easily be improved with practice. Manage your thoughts so they are fair, helpful and encouraging. Take a little time to hone a positive spin on your thoughts for healthy living. It is well worth the investment.
