The most important piece of exercise and health equipment you can ever have is free of charge and travels with you in every moment of your life. Your brain! This is the master computer that is teaching your body how to live, feel and react. So..... what are you doing with your supercomputer? Are you programming it with health or letting it just run wild, randomly generating information without direction or purpose? You are probably too young to remember the 80's movie War Games, a classic :-) but a supercomputer gets out of control and begins to start WWIII. Are you creating peace or war within your body with your supercomputer??? What kind of programming are you doing? Do you begin each day with purpose, with a smile, with a pleasant thought? Or are you off to the race of negativity,comparing your life to the falsities on social media, magazines and tv??
This morning, I pulled up my social media feed, just random useless stuff, but I could literally feel myself getting slightly depressed looking at it, what was I doing? Programming my day with depression and inadequacy? NO WAY!!! How often are you programming your brain with these kinds of negative thoughts? Comparing yourself to others instead of reveling in the joy and amazement that is you, your life, your body and your existence?? I know that life can be a struggle, I know that stress, anxiety and fear can seem like much easier programs to use. But please realize that you do have other programs readily available to use. Spend just 5 minutes today consciously using the program for happiness and peace. I know that sounds simple but if you really focus right now.... are you having happy thoughts or are you already back to anxiety, worry and frustration?? Okay maybe lets run that program for just 2 minutes... are you ready?
Get out your phone so that you can look at the time. Slow your breathing down taking longer and steady breathes in and out. For the next 2 minutes only think love thoughts, it does not matter what you love. Here are some of my examples: I love my husband, I love my coffee, I love that my thighs are lean now, I love that I get to write this blog, it does not matter..... GO!
Wow, two minutes felt so long? How about for you? Did you make the whole time? How quickly did your programmed brain want to interject a negative program, an irritated program? Note how long you could make it and then add a little each day until you can get to a full 5 minutes! Do you feel how much your body changed in those few moments? Your brain is now more oxidized and relaxed and worked out in a whole new way! Congratulations!!!!!Read More
