This week I would like to share with you the second solution to a healthier and happier life:Awareness of Daily Actions
So many philosophers and great thinkers have known that the sure-fire way to increasing the kind of results you want in your life is to focus on them. So what thoughts occupy your mind the most regarding living your best life?
What are your thoughts around food and eating? Exercise? Time? What are your thoughts around investing time and money into living your best life possible?
Do you think that paying for gym memberships, personal trainers, courses that teach you how to live your best life are necessities or luxuries?
Bottom line is this, whatever thought occupy your mind the most, you will get that result in your – life always!
The equation for creating results is as follows: Thought lead to desire which lead to action which lead to result!
Let’s use the example of food, eating and awareness:
“So much of our eating takes place outside our awareness that it’s easy to underestimate how much food we actually put into our bodies”. The Journal of AMA, Katherine F. Legal.
Research has shown that eating foods that are high in sugar, salt, and fat make you want to eat more. This is a deliberate business strategy by food Companies, they use science to help them create highly rewarding or addicting foods. This gets you hooked. If you spend your days engaged in mindless eating you will get results that are typical of this action.
- Healthy and happy people hold thoughts that are aligned with the kind of results they want to get
- Healthy and happy people are aware of their thoughts and know they impact on the results they get
- Healthy and happy people are mindful about what they eat, when they eat, why they are eating and where they eat
My gentle challenge to you this week is to try the above 3 actions every day for this week. You will find you make better eating choices, feel more energetic and consequently are more creative and overall happier.
