New beginnings are a way to restart – to begin again. Wipe the slate clean. Time to clean up old habits – emotional and physical. Start with your diet. Take a good look at your diet and see which areas need to be improved. You don’t have to do anything drastic. Making small changes will ensure greater success and will keep you from feeling deprived. It’s simple and doesn’t have to be overwhelming. If you normally eat two pieces of pizza for dinner, cut it down to one piece and add a healthy salad. With time, you will be able to tweak your diet easily. Next, look at your thought processes. Clean up any negative thinking habits. This is something that takes continuous practice, especially if it is an ingrained habit. You need to be conscious at all times. You need to be able to realize the negative thought and in the moment of awareness make the choice to improve it with a positive thought. Doing a little leg work can be helpful. Make a list of all the things that you appreciate in your life as well as a list of things that just put a smile on your face. Carry this list with you at all times and when a negative thought raises its ugly head, pull the list out and read it. Continue to read it until the negative thought has passed. If you continue to do this on a repeated basis, you will soon see how easy it becomes and that you won’t need your list anymore. It will become automatic. Take this opportunity of a new beginning to birth a new you. You will be happy that you did!
Peace and Love Always ~
