THE MIND

 

Week 19 Challenge: How aware are you of your thoughts?

This weeks challenge is to view your thoughts like they are the best television show you have ever watched. Instead of what I like to call hopping on a thought train for hours, practice labeling your thoughts. Positive, Negative and Neutral! See what happens when you do this?

** Wanna know the answer?! The thought goes away! Viola, just like that! Everyday this week spend 2 minutes labeling your thoughts.

Week 20 Challenge: When there is too much noise our brains become awful at filtering rational thoughts and then we end up eating something we never would have.

This weeks challenge is to try 2 different quick meditations daily:
The 1st is to close your eyes and just listen to the sounds around you. Feel how your body responds. Did your body react? Where you able to label yours thoughts that come in as positive, negative or neutral. or did forget to do this and find that your mind was giving you solutions to make it more pleasurable.
Your 2nd challenge this week is to find a song that you find motivating and play it every morning when you are getting ready?

 

Week 21 Challenge: Let’s try transforming our emotions… remembering that they are only temporary!

1. Lets Label our emotion. “I’m feeling _________”.
2. Re-framing: put a different interpretation onto the same set of circumstances. I like to call it finding the silver lining!
Ex.: you may label something as horrible, terrible, disgusting, and then you can find a different label: I learned…, or the upside of this was…, or now I know for next time…

 

Week 22 Challenge: I want you to identify one of your own fears, and turn it into trust!

ex. If I don’t have a cocktail with my friends at dinner, they will judge me!
Instead, choose to look at it like: My friends are supportive of my choices and love me for who I am.
ex. If I don’t eat at noon I will starve later. Or you can turn it into: I’m gonna wait until I feel hunger, there is always food around. I won’t starve.
What’s your truth? Pick trust!
