Did you ever wonder how all that baggage in your mind impacts your physical body?
When you are really stressed, do you ever feel like you are carrying the weight of the world on your shoulders? Don't you feel "heavier" and "weighed-down" with all those worries!
I know that when I am happy and free of worries, my entire body feels lighter and moves with ease. I walk with a confidence, my body feels more fit and toned. But when I am "off" or having a "bad day", it seems like my body is more lethargic and heavier.
I was inspired to write this post because I really want you to get that what you are thinking in your mind "weighs heavily" on your physical body and will impact the success of your weight loss journey. There is no doubt about this.
Thoughts and feelings are energy and they are felt at every fiber of your being. Your physical body responds to the thoughts you think -- and there is a direct correlation. So if you are carrying some excess baggage (i.e., chronic negative feelings) in that mind of yours, you may see that excess baggage somewhere down the line deposited on your hips, your stomach, your thighs!
Just think about how you may have gained that weight or if you are one of those "up and down" people, all those times you have gained back that excess weight. What was going on in your life at that time? What were you thinking and feeling? Were you in a HAPPY place? Or were you under stress and feeling like ... (you know what I am referring to by the ... !)
The reasons for being overweight goes so much deeper than the foods you eat and the exercise you do. Yes, these things are important -- however, what brought you to those "unhealthy foods" in the first place? Why were you not motivated to move or exercise?
Address the Stress! Release all that resistance and excess baggage you hold onto in your mind. Attract INNER Well-Being and your outer body will respond positively!
You will start to see those pounds melt away, along with those negative thoughts & feelings.
Decide today that carrying the "Weight of the World" is not your job! Your only job is to feel good and be Lovin' Life. And once you do this, no matter what is going on around you, your body will feel better and all areas of your life will get a significant upgrade!
