Whether it's in regard to tracking food, exercising, maintaining a streak, or even negative self talk, I've chosen a mantra to help keep me focused. I write or say to myself, "How badly do I really want this?" My action is my answer.
Whether you woke up on the wrong side of the bed or can't catch a break no matter what you're doing...you can take 5 minutes. (Go outside or to the bathroom if there are others around) Concentrate on your breathing and find where you are feeling the stress in your body.
No matter what happened yesterday or today, we are all blessed with the opportunity for a 'do over'. We will wake up tomorrow and get a fresh start to make good choices and do what is right for each one of us! You wake up feeling refreshed, and get a fresh start. Make the most of your 'do over'!
I remind myself to let go and let God every morning as I get up, and it comes to my mind when something happens that is not positive. I also claim the scripture that all things work together for the good to those who love the Lord and are called according to his purpose. Put that with prayer!
