Have you been feeling discouraged, burdened, lacking in confidence or unworthy in any capacity? Please take a moment to consider what it is that’s weighing down your heart.
Things that happen in life are not always something we have control over, but we do have control over our own choices.
Often deep-rooted thought patterns — fear, old habits, doubt, wrong choices, indulged grudges or current struggles — threaten to choke our growth and prevent us from our intentions of reaching our goals. We start our day hopeful yet quickly cave in to the wrong, hurtful decision. Our self-doubts, judgments and unconstructiveness often take root in negative thoughts and counterproductive actions that not only have the potential to ruin our day, but also affect those around us. However, if we are intentional to nip these at their first appearance, we will be more likely to experience new growth in our health and in our thoughts and actions.
Tips to overcome weight:
Nip those negative thoughts – turn them to positive thoughts of yourself. Surround yourself with the positive.
Be active – this helps burn the calories but also improve mental health and get out some aggression.
Have some fun – choose activities that you enjoy with others or alone. Bike, swim, walk, dance, etc.
Find a new hobby – do something new and exciting. Try something different and change up your routine to get some pep in your life. Maybe take up gardening or fishing.
Food for thought to help your heart and mind:
Sprinkle blueberries on your yogurt, in your smoothies or eat as they are because they are just so good.
Grill, smoke, poach or pan fry salmon. It is a great source of omega-3’s for heart health and weight management.
Increase your vitamin C with citrus, tomatoes, peppers, berries, etc.
Eat lots of fiber in the form of vegetables, nuts and seeds.
