I was working with a client this morning who happened to be having a particularly tough day.  She was suffering. As we did our best to unpack, look at and ultimately work through her suffering; she let it go, which left her free to enjoy her day!

10 Simple Steps: How to Survive a Tough Day

1. Keep Going!
If you’re going through Hell, keep going. – Winston Churchill

2.  Let Go of Your Worries!
Don’t let your mind bully your body into believing it must carry the burden of its worries. – Astrid Alauda

3.  Stop Resisting!
Pain is a relatively objective, physical phenomenon; suffering is our psychological resistance to what happens. Events may create physical pain, but they do not in themselves create suffering. Resistance creates suffering. Stress happens when your mind resists what is… The only problem in your life is your mind’s resistance to life as it unfolds. – Dan Millman

4.  Use Your Angry for Something Positive!
In times of great stress or adversity, it’s always best to keep busy, to plow your anger and your energy into something positive. – Lee Iacoca

5.  Watch and Choose Your Thoughts Wisely!
The greatest weapon against stress is our ability to choose one thought over another. – William James

6.  Breathe!
Stress is basically a disconnection from the earth, a forgetting of the breath. Stress is an ignorant state. It believes that everything is an emergency. Nothing is that important. Just lie down. – Natalie Goldberg

7.  Stand Up!
Fall seven times, stand up eight. – Japanese proverb

8.  Hang In and Hang On!
When you reach the end of your rope, tie a knot in it, and hang on. – Thomas Jefferson

9.  Sing Your Song!
A bird doesn’t sing because it has an answer, it sings because it has a song. – Maya Angelou

10. Live NOW!
You don’t get to choose how you’re going to die. Or when. But you can decide how you’re going to live now. – Joan Baez

People often begin their journey on the road to Sveltesville without fully knowing how they are going reach their goal(s). They “decide” to go on a “diet.” They want to lose weight. They are willing to change their relationship with food, but they haven’t truly thought through the specifics of a solid, sustainable, “how to” plan.

People say that they want to be able to “control” their eating. When they stop to think about the it all, they often feel overwhelmed, as well as defeated, depressed and deprived (The 3 D’s!

Here’s a new way of thinking about what you need to do/want to do/can do that will ultimately change your mind.

As Albert Einstein said, “You can’t solve a problem with the same mind that created it.”

Ready to change your mind?

Instead of trying to control your future, control how you eat, control your weight … you might want to CREATE IT!!!

Create vs. Control

How to Create it!!!!   When we are clear about what we want, when we have a clear vision; the how to manage it; mysteriously shows up!  Imagine that!!!

A clear vision of the future enables us to make those moment-to-moment choices that bring us closer to our weight loss goals (or any goal).  The vision carries us.  It is crucial!

Imagine that you asked two friends “What do you want in life?”  One says, “To be happy.”  Period.  End of report.  No details!  But the other friend paints a vivid picture for you, “I want to be financially independent in three years, live in a ranch house in the desert, meditate every day for 3 hours facing east, and while I’m chanting, the heirloom tomatoes are growing in my vegetable garden.”  You get the point, yes?   “To be happy”  What does that mean?  Weigh (ha) too vague!

Rather than beating your head against the wall trying to CONTROL it all; let’s CREATE it all!

Make a list, check it twice and share …

Motivational Musing: Yes? Yes! Yes?

Say YES ... contact Janice Taylor, Life & Weight Loss SUCCESS Coach, Hypnotherapist, Author, Artist, Positarian

Say YES … contact Janice Taylor, Life & Weight Loss SUCCESS Coach, Hypnotherapist, Author, Artist, Positarian

The great teachers tell us that you cannot start seeing or understanding anything when you start with “No.”

“Why is that?” you ask. Because…
…Starting with “Yes” does not mean that you jump in happily with a perfect 2-foot landing. “Yes” is about acceptance, which means you abandon labels (like lazy), and you attempt to stop analyzing or categorizing things (like good vs. bad).

“Yes” allows you to create an inner-spaciousness. It allows you to observe; to become aware of the “No” and the thoughts and feelings that surround it. When we complain, reject or fear something, in the irrational world of ego, our erroneous sense of self strengthens and makes us feel as if we are important, which in turn leads to your contracting back into your small self, your false sense; the opposite of luminous authenticity.

When you hear yourself saying, “No,” step back and observe the “defensive” wall that you are building with “No;” so high and thick that you can’t see past it.

And, then step into “Yes.” Even if the word doesn’t resonate fully, even if it makes no sense in this moment, start with “Yes” and see what could happen!

“Yes, the mind likes to think, but until it learns to listen to others, to the body, the heart and all the sense, it also uses itself to block everything it does not like to do or to acknowledge.” ~ Richard Rohr

Motivational Monday: The Psychology of Body Esteem

Ready to Love Thyself? - contact Janice Taylor, Life & Weight Loss Success Coach, Hypnotherapist, Artist, Author, Positarian

Ready to Love Thyself? – contact Janice Taylor, Life & Weight Loss Success Coach, Hypnotherapist, Artist, Author, Positarian

Our body image (a.k.a. body esteem) is the picture we have of our physical body. It is an inner view of our outer self. It is formed by our awareness, imagination and emotions. It is ever shifting. Our body esteem not only depends upon our pant size or the number that registers on the “scales of injustice,” it can also shift depending on our mood, the environment, as well as the who, what and where of the day.

In other words, how we feel about our self and our body is psychological in nature. Our body image is NOT based on fact. It is learned.

Body image primarily comes to us from the dictates of culture. Advertisers and the media as well as our family and peers have manipulated our images of beauty.

Body-esteem is linked to self-esteem. Studies show that body image makes up about 25 percent of our self-esteem. If we are happy with our bodies, we are likely to move through the day with confidence and grace. If we are unhappy, our body language reflects this state.

When negative thoughts about your body surface, remember:

Body-esteem is subjective.
Body-esteem is ever shifting.
Body-esteem is psychological in nature.
Body-esteem is not based on fact.
Body-esteem is learned.
Body image makes up about 25 percent of our self-esteem.

Proceed with confidence!
Sometimes it’s just that simple.
