Many of us want to lose weight or get in better shape because we’re concerned about our health and have made the decision to take better care of your bodies. If that’s you, you are not alone! Are there simple things you could be doing to be healthier? Achieving better health with affirmations is possible if you believe.
When you choose the right foods and exercise, you’ll look and feel better, reduce your stress levels, sleep more soundly, have more energy, and enjoy better health. Sometimes, though, making the right choices isn’t as easy as it sounds, is it?
The good news is there are some simple things you can do to help make positive choices and achieve the better health you deserve!
Do You Need More Motivation?
If the alarm went off 45 minutes earlier in the morning so you could exercise before heading into the office, how would you react? Would you reply with negativity and tell yourself that skipping one day won’t hurt, or that you have so far to go exercise is pointless?
When you pass that fast food restaurant with the $.99 burgers and you’re low on time and big on hunger, what choice do you usually make? Eating healthier isn’t always as easy as picking up convenient, greasy foods. But would you go the extra mile for a healthy meal?
What about sleep? In addition to exercising and eating right, you also need to get enough sleep to live a healthy lifestyle. When you don’t sleep well, you’ll be less inclined to make healthy food and exercise decisions. Sleeping well helps you feel more energetic and passionate about all things in your life, including your commitment to your health!
Achieving Better Health With Affirmations
In those moments when you feel weak and you don’t want to eat right, get enough sleep, or exercise, affirmations targeting your health can be just what you need to help you make the healthy choice.
Affirmations are positive statements that replace the negative thought processes in your mind. If you think they don’t work, you are wrong. Is it ok to be that honest with you?
When you start to talk yourself out of exercising, a negative affirmation is being repeated in your mind. An affirmation that says “I can’t do it.” So if a negative affirmation works, why wouldn’t a positive one?
When you’re about to choose junk food instead of the good stuff, repeating an affirmation in your mind will remind you of your desire to be healthier and help you become more consciously and subconsciously aware of your healthy living goals.
For example, you can say, “I allow my body to receive enough rest and exercise,” or “The more I take care of myself, the better I feel.” Using statements like these will give you that gentle push you need when you feel inclined to be pessimistic or slip back into old habits.
Promise yourself that you will repeat healthy living affirmations to yourself several times each day and whenever you need encouragement. It will take some getting used to, but soon, you’ll find yourself making healthy decisions more and more often.It will take some getting used to, but soon, you'll find yourself making healthy decisions more and more often.
