We always look to others to help us with health issues. We look for “diets”, exercise programs and personal trainers, physicians who can advise and prescribe for us or give us a roadmap to a healthy lifestyle. The truth of it is that WE know. We can trust ourselves and our intuition if we recognize those thoughts and voices. One size fits all diets and exercise programs, and training regimes are just that. Fits everyone, customized for no one. Our individual and unique bodies may not respond well, and if we become aware of this, on some deep level we recognize that our inner voices know better.
Your Body Knows
You know those days when you get home from work, starving because you’ve had such a busy day that you skipped lunch. You open a packet of crisps and finish them on the way to the fridge. Then, you reach into the fridge and demolish the chocolate cake leftover from last night while you wait for the healthier leftovers to warm up. One thousand calories later, your bard is warm, but now you can only eat a few mouthfuls, and can’t even think of what you’re going to make for dinner in a few hours. The warm fuzzy feeling you had from the chocolate cake endorphins have worn off. You now feel bloated, and physically and mentally disgusted with yourself.
The disgust is not only a physical result of the avalanche of bad-for-you chemicals coursing through your digestive system and veins. It’s a result of the voice in your head saying, You should know better. After all, you could have gone directly to the fridge and pulled out an apple or a carrot instead of the crisps and cake.
Health Begins In Your Mind
Prepare yourself mentally to achieve a healthy lifestyle. Differentiate between the psychological and biological. Mental health, physical habits, and psychological factors all converge to create your overall well-being.
Mental health is about instilling positive and beneficial psychological habits. This is integral to developing good physical habits.
Plan your time giving yourself space for your healthy habits to take hold. Planning meals and exercise and sleep times are the foundation of good health and inculcating those habits.
Follow your body’s natural cycles. If you are more energetic at night your voices will let you know you have the energy now to exercise or tell you if you’re tired and need to take a break.
Follow an exercise, eating, and mental health program.
Draw up a schedule for exercise and meditative time,
Commit yourself to a healthy eating menu.
For example, every time you are bard shopping listen to that voice in your head. When you reach for that cream cake, and the voice says “Don’t do it!” simply listen and put it down. It’s that simple. If you’re thinking about how good it will feel eating it later, realize the “feel” that’s in your head is about comfort eating not your stomach or body’s needs.
A lot about health has roots in your psychology. If you eat to feel good about yourself, this will impact on your physical health.
If you are too lazy to make the effort to move more, this will impact on your physical health. Exercise promotes endorphins which will make you feel great so it’s almost essential to move more in order to feel good, which will entrain a happier outlook and healthier body.
Making Time to Do What’s Right for Yourself
That may mean making more time to shop. For instance, you can start by making a shopping list and sticking to it. Shopping lists are not only useful memory aids. They can also reduce your chances of buying unhealthy food that can sabotage your goals and harm your health. What’s more, an empty fridge can make you rely on takeouts or fast food. So, before going to the supermarket, write down a list that is organized into sections and includes all the ingredients that will help you make healthy meals for the whole week.
