Almost everyone under stay-in-place is feeling the downside of the lockdown with weight gain. If you’re thinking of doing a little better with your health and making changes to your diet and exercise be prepared to be accountable. You need to speak it and announce it outloud and be held accountable for your success or failure.
When an entire nation faces tough times and we need to check in
Embarking on a journey for a positive change of deliberate intent can be a lonesome one and a burden that ends in failure. There will come a time when you feel like you are underwater and you will need someone, anyone to toss you a buoy. Noone wants to be totally alone. Someone available to provide support is your best measure and can be a life jacket.
Purging and eetoxing at micro levels means getting rid of all things that do not provide value including relationships. Many things can sabotage your new journey like bad relationships that cause pain.
Let’s take a look at pain, a pressing disease that impacts your mood, energy, attitude, spirit as well as mental and physical; the entire well being. Pain is felt physically and emotionally. Tackling it is not going to be an easy feat. Pain may never go away. And the truth is that there may be nothing we can do to eradicate pain; however there may be things we can do to reduce or alleviate such as light yoga, isolated therapeutic exercises, massages and hot/cold compression and soaking. Managing physical pain without control medication takes great levels of tolerance and patience to endure. Once it is becomes too extreme beyond tolerable then it becomes torture and torment just like bad relationships.
I recommend using a straightforward approach to change. Begin with a strict detox and immediately eliminate everything negative from your diet and associations. However, some situations are like bodily pain, it may not disappear overnight; however you can do everything possible to reduce it, make it dissipate if not eliminated entirely. If you fall or get off track just get back up. We all fall but that's not important. Most important is that you started, now you must finish. Learn to forgive yourself, get it off your chest and talk to your support. Get up and get back on the horse and ride to see the horizon and where change will take you.
