Your mind talks to your body all the time. If you want to be healthy and feel great, it is your responsibility to train your mind. And the easiest way to start is to tell your mind great things. You can always choose what to feed your mind: nourishment or poison.
So these are the essential things to pay attention to if you want to be happy:
Language you use
How you feel and what you do at any given time will heavily depend on what you say to yourself. And a lot of times, we don’t even know that we are using destructive language. If you are telling yourself: “This is terrible. This is a disaster. This is terrifying. This is a nightmare….”, then you are creating your reality according to the language you use.
There is a big difference between these statements below:
- “I am so freaking tired, I can’t even move” or “I could use some rest.”
- “I hate my job. I am so miserable” or “What can I do to make my job more pleasant?” or even “Maybe I should explore other opportunities.” (that is also relevant for the second point below)
Your words shape your reality. Audit your inner dialogue and eliminate the language that is destructive in nature and harming you.
Meaning you assign to an event
You can interpret the same event in a positive light or a negative one. And based on your interpretation, you will feel that you are either suffering or that you are blessed or faced with a challenge that will benefit you in the end result.
When someone sprains an ankle, they can think that this was the worst time for this to happen, or they can think that they could use some rest. When someone is broken up with, they can think that this is absolutely terrible, or that this is an opportunity to meet their soulmate.
I have worked with many people who were really miserable at their jobs. And day after day they went there, hating their life and everyone around. And after they understood that they were empowered and could do something about this, they stopped their suffering.
Almost always we have a choice. We can change how we feel about something or we can change that something. You have tremendous power over your own life! Use it responsibly. 🙂
Till next time,
Love and Take Care of Yourself! Because You are Absolutely Worth It!
Have a Fabulous Day!!!
