In the last post I talked about working on your weaknesses to improve on your strengths. I decided to work on one at a time and chose my weakness to alcohol as my first course of action. Funny enough, it worked. I haven’t been drinking and I have been feeling fantastic. I had noticed that I had 3 day depressions after a night of drinking, which lead me to that “eat and drink more to make me feel better” cycle… and they are gone since I stopped drinking. Funny how that works. Alcohol is a depressant. I drink, I feel depressed. I stop eating, I feel good.
Cause and Effect
Funny how it works. If you take care of your body, it will take care of you (there are exceptions to this when people get sick but that is another topic). My skin was breaking out. I tried EVERYTHING on my skin to make it better, and nothing worked. Then I thought I should change it from the inside out. I changed my eating habits, added more greens and healthy stuff and PRESTO CHANGO, my skin cleared up. Magic Right?
The truth is we are in control of our bodies (again, there are exceptions). Nutrition is the primary way of healing your body and we are 100% in control of what we put in our mouths.
If you want to see change, you must take responsibility and take your power back.
Cause and Effect
You are what you eat. Food can change your mood. You are everything you have ever done to yourself and the choices you make directly effect the outcome of your life. It might be easy to forget that when you are young, fit and healthy. You could be eating badly, drinking and even smoking and it could not affect you that much but as you age it will start to come back and haunt you. This is also true with athletics (all my rugby friends). All the impact, injuries etc. will one day come back and show their ugly face if you don’t take care of yourself.
The best doctor in the world, the best nutritionist, psychologist, personal trainer, guru is inside you. You are the one that has all the keys to make the positive changes you want to make in your life.
Working on my weakness has improved my strength. I am closer to the “ideal” person I want to be. I made a change and it had a positive effect on my life.
It’s not rocket science my friends. Take responsibility and make the change.
