is about getting everything right in your own mind. The connection between the body and the mind is often overlooked in many diet and exercise programs. This week’s focus will be on finding quiet time throughout the day to meditate, reflect on your life, and discover latent talents and abilities to strengthen the new you. Before you continue it’s important to read WEEK 4.
Get rid of stress
Take time each day to do something that takes the stress away. It will vary from person to person. Maybe you’ll want to take part in a physical activity like kickboxing or a martial art where you can take out your frustrations. Maybe you just need to take a hot bath each day. Spend at least 30 minutes per day doing something with the sole intention of relieving stress and feeling better.
Meditation is something all of us should be doing, but few of us find the time for. If you started doing yoga in Week Three you may have already gotten a taste of what it’s like to quiet the mind and search within yourself. Whether you meditate with yoga or you simply like to sit alone in your room and explore your inner workings, just make sure you make it a priority and do it daily.
Find positive people
Filling your life with people that make you feel good when you’re around them. It should be much easier to do now that you’re five weeks in and are feeling better yourself. You may have even noticed that these sorts of people have naturally been gravitating toward you over the last month or so.
Have a strong reason as to why you’re doing this
Keep your why strong and you’ll have no trouble staying the course and keeping the right mentality. You started this for a reason, and maybe that reason isn’t applicable anymore, or maybe it is. Whatever the case, whether you have to come up with a new reason to keep going, or your original reason still holds, make sure you always know why it’s important to keep a sound body and mind.
