Feeding Your Mind Outrageously Healthy Thoughts
Help yourself on your mission to become outrageously healthy by using positive thoughts.
One way to do this is to create a poster that represents the new outrageously healthy, happy and prosperous You. It should be a visual representation of the lifestyle you are creating for yourself. Maybe you could include pictures of your favourite outrageously healthy foods: tropical fruit, veggies, pure water and juices; along with people who are happy, having fun, looking vital and healthy, exercising or doing yoga by the beach. Maybe it includes all the cool things you want to do, see and have in your life.
I like to include words that inspire or motivate me and make me feel fabulous. Have a look in magazines, newspapers or brochures for words or phrases that speak to the outrageously healthy you who is beginning to emerge.
Place the poster somewhere you will see it once or more every day. To help the process move even faster, stick inspiring pictures on your bathroom mirror, fridge, car sun visor (so each time you fold it down there is a reminder of the outrageously healthy you) and in your wallet or day planner, work area at your office or on your locker - anywhere you will be see them regularly.
My poster sits above my desk in front of my computer. This is somewhere I spend a lot of time and each time I look up there it is, reminding me how outrageously healthy I am. I also have things in my bathroom and on my fridge, as well as books on my coffee table to inspire me. In addition, I have sets of cards with thoughts for the day scattered around my house in places I will see them often. Just do whatever works for you. Remember you are creating an environment that is going to support you grow into the outrageously healthy happy and prosperous person you deserve to be.
I also decided to have new rules about being healthy, happy and prosperous. Once upon a time I had really complicated rules about what I had to do to feel healthy, for example. I had to be perfect in so many ways, which meant I never felt I was doing enough to consider myself outrageously healthy. I was continually sabotaging my efforts because I felt I wasn’t measuring up.
My new rules started with ‘faking it until I made it’. That is, I pretended I was outrageously healthy even though I was not quite there yet, because I knew that the more I told myself I was outrageously healthy the more outrageously healthy I would be. Try it, because it works.
Here are some examples of my new rules. I feel outrageously healthy every time I drink water, every time I eat fresh fruit, every time I focus on my breathing, every time I take the stairs, every time I take a walk, every time I stand up straight or every time I… Basically I made a big long list of things that would help me feel outrageously healthy. All I had to do was experience one of them to feel outrageously healthy every time I did it. How cool!
Why not make your own list of things that help you feel outrageously healthy, happy and prosperous so you can be reminded many times throughout the day. Make it easy to be successful and feel like an outrageously successful winner all day, every day.
