Every month, you need to be writing down your accomplishments in wellness.
The pain of missing the mark will cloud your sense of self more than the wins for most people, so most of us need to be really deliberate about how we think about accomplishments.
In fact, I heard someone say once that you need 5 good things in your brain bank to offset 1 bad thing. I believe that. Though I do not think that it is a fixed feeling IF you work on it all of the time.
By the end of this month, you should have a list of every single thing you did and have continued to do to better your health .
Things to consider?
Foods you ate
Foods you ate when circumstances were more challenging
Ways you managed your emotions
How many times did you move or exercise?
How many times did you quietly reflect on goodness?
Did you overcome negativity?
Did you change priorities?
You cannot overcome negative thoughts without overdoing it. Overdo your positivity in the next few days. Write down all that is good. Even ratio it out!
You will find that the negative, WHICH YOU DID GET THROUGH EVEN IF IT WAS PAINFUL AT THE TIME, had a lot of positive attached to it.
You ARE doing great things. Celebrate them.
