Life’s Too Short Not To Feel Good

A young woman lying on her couch reaching for the phoneYou want most things that you do to feel good.

So do I.

I get it.

So does this mean that you should just let yourself do whatever you want, whenever you want?   A lot of us think that feeling good and going for pleasure means never saying no to ourselves.

That might mean a lifetime of sitting in your jammies on a well-worn couch, eating chips.  And doing that all the time doesn’t give me or my clients the results we want.

How can you enjoy rest time, delicious foods, and playing, while still getting healthy, fit and energized?

What if you altered your definition of ‘feeling good’?

What if you expanded it to mean, doing what makes you feel good both now and in the future?

All we really want is to marry doing what’s necessary to get us where we want to go, with enjoying the fruits of life…the fun, the joy and the pleasure.

Life’s Short. Enjoy the Pleasure.

Well, what if eating well could be looked at as one of the sweetest things you could do for yourself?

What if you created delicious and healthy foods as a gift to yourself?  Instead of a punishment for being overweight?

What if you viewed some form of movement as a gift?  And thought about all the benefits you would get from it?  And stopped worrying about how many calories you were burning?

I want you to achieve all your goals and dreams…from having the body you want, to feeling the peace you long for.

And the way to do that is to do it with pleasure.

To see the things you do for yourself as wonderful gifts, instead of penalties.

You eat well because you deserve it, it feels great, and it adds to your health.

You move your body because you love feeling sweaty and flexible and tired in a great way.

Imagine what you could achieve if you could look at these things you do as pleasure, in and of themselves.  For you.

Because you deserve it.

AND because pleasurable activities will pull you towards your goals with less effort than forcing yourself to do things because you ‘should’.

What will you choose in this coming year?  Life really is short.  So instead of doing what you’ve always done, think about this:

Eating well based on what your body needs, when it needs it, is a pleasure.

Eating well because you should, because you hate yourself as you are, well…that sucks.

Which way will you pick to reach your dreams this year?

It’s such a small shift in your perception.  But with a huge difference in your outcome.
