Don't succumb to the emotion of the moment.We've all been there right? We've had a long day, running around doing a million things and that couch is calling your name. Only "problem" is you just WANT to get that workout in, but don't FEEL like doing it. Right now, your head is telling you you just want to collapse on that couch and binge on hours of "
Um, same goes with writing blog posts😉
AND same with food choices too, right?? Here's a good moment to check in with ourselves to note whether we're eating out of emotion or because we TRULY want what we're craving. A good 'second thought' to keep in your mind: Do I really want this (fill in the blank: chocolate, ice cream sundae, entire bag of salty chips...mmmmm, chips) because I'm feeling stressed/anxious/etc at this moment? And if so, IS this treat going to change any of those emotions after I polish off that last bite? Or am I just going to feel worse...and then crave MORE stuff? ALSO, am I eating (your treat of choice) out of HABIT? Just because it's in front of me or it's what I normally do when I watch a show at the end of a day. And again, there are times you NEED that chocolate...because if you don't have it, you're now 'denying yourself' and that's going to create resentments. At those times: have the darn chocolate, live your life and be happy. But if you know it's not worth the calories and you're just having it because you're bored/stressed/it's in front of you/choose you're own reason, try your best to breath to get to the NEXT moment where you can move away from it with no second thoughts.
Try your best to think of the big picture of what you REALLY want, a healthier lifestyle or completing ANY task, and ask yourself which one you TRULY want more in THIS moment, separate from those emotions. 98% of the time it only takes a few extra moments, just a few extra calming breaths, to check in with ourselves and find an answer that is coming from a place of peace vs. the emotions OF the moment. Always come from peace...it'll never lead you wrong😉
