Think Like You Already Have It.
Think of a burger. A hot, slab of perfectly-grilled beef covered in melted cheese, caramelised onion, juicy tomatoes and crisp lettuce. Polished off by a bun so moist it would make the gods weep.
I bet just the thought this made you salivate. The mind can affect the physical body in many ways, this being one of them. Your thoughts, big or small, make up your reality.
In the same way, your physical body can affect your mindset. Spend a day, even an hour, with a depressed face, shoulder hunched and back stooped over. Even when your mentality is strong and confident, you’ll soon feel the depressive effects of this posture.
The body and mind are inextricably linked.
That’s why, in the quest for optimal health, your mindset is of utmost importance.
It sounds guru-esque, but you can change you physical form from the inside. It starts with self-talk.
Affirmations are present tense statements said in a way in which you believe them to be true. They are personal and meaningful to who you want to become.
You want to develop 3-5 intentional statements which resonate with your ultimate goal. Who do you need to become? What characteristics and behaviours do you have?
You’ll soon begin acting a way in accordance with these statements.
Leave negative self-talk behind and start thinking and talking like you are already there.
