positive mindset

Living mindfully is not about forcing positivity all the time. It is instead seeing the picture as a whole, acknowledging it, and remembering to keep on open mind towards all aspects of it.

When I was a teen I felt a nasty mixture of guilt, shame and hatred when ever I ate junk food. This damaged my confidence quite a bit and gave me a very negative mindset.

Since then I’ve taught myself some Things…

  • It’s OK to treat yourself now and again- it’s enjoyable and it helps with cravings.
  • Don’t aim to be “Skinny” aim to be happy and healthy.
  • Only eating salad or under eating is extremely unhealthy. Balance is the way to go.
  • One day of unhealthy eating wouldn’t make you gain weight, one day of healthy eating wouldn’t make you lose it either.
  • But never be scared of a little weight gain, numbers aren’t important. There are much worse things that could happen to you.
  • Don’t let food control your life.
We control the doorway to our minds. Negative thoughts may be present, but we choose whether or not they are able to enter and take root.

Think about your dream life. Picture it. Imagine it. See it in front of you. It may be close, or may seem light years away. It may be big, small, exciting or enlightening. It may be the ultimate adventure, or sweet and cuddly just the way you like it. Regardless, this is your dream life.

This is the life that you are capable of achieving.
