What is stopping you from going out and purging that pantry of poisonous foods, walking around the block, meditating, or any other practice that could be benefiting you? I know when I began trying to get healthy I had a number of hurdles to cross. I had an idea in my head that if I just applied enough willpower I could make myself eat the right things, or exercise the right way. This worked for a month or so.
I reached a certain point where I just didn’t want to put the effort in anymore. What was the point? The answer is right there. What is the point? Before I could continue getting healthy I needed to ask myself why I was doing this, and why it was so hard to continue. So what were my internal obstacles? A feeling of not deserving health. Also turns out that foods is a coping mechanism for me, and has been since I was a child. I had to make a definitive shift in how to deal with stress before I could make the commitment to just eat healthy everyday.
Now, I meditate every morning, journal my goals, and exercise to strengthen my body and mind against stress. This has replaced the need to stuff myself with junk whenever I get stressed. This routine might look different for you. Below are three questions to start this process. This is the angle I start coaching from.
