Now ever feel lousy and just don’t know how to change it, even
though you want to?
Well, today you’ll learn simple techniques that can change how you
feel in minutes.
Once you realize how easy this is, you won’t have to stay in
a “funk” any longer than you choose to ever again!
Here we go:
First, how we feel about ourselves affects how we treat ourselves.
Whether it’s our eating habits, exercising, smoking, or
overworking, how we feel about ourselves affects what we choose
to do and is ultimately reflected in our health.
When do you tend to overeat?
When do you binge on sugar or junk food?
When do you smoke?
How do you feel afterward?
Are you ready to break the cycle?
As we’ve already discussed, changing your thoughts and what
you say to yourself is key.
The amazing thing, however, is that we can also reverse the
process–treat ourselves well to start shifting how we feel!
When you’re feeling low, take a hot bath or shower, go for
a brisk walk, listen to an inspiring song, eat an apple or
something that makes you feel healthy.
Changing the “signals” or “messages” you give your mind and
body in this way will put you on the path to life and health,
and as you reinforce these signals with healthy affirmations
“Wow–this feels good! I feel healthy! I’m glad I did that!”
you can turn a downward cycle around.
Lastly, experiment this week with looking at yourself in the
mirror and saying, “…you are wonderful, and I love you!”
Whether you feel it or not, say it with enthusiasm, and you
will again give your brain and body, even at the cellular level,
new and healthy signals that will create **new patterns** in
your thinking, your feeling, and your health.

feel, and leave your comments and questions below!
