Mindfulness: Progress not Perfection

I was thinking about what a client asked of me- regarding how can I just say ‘no’ to something and stick with it.  I have practiced and learned a lot from my clients, mentors, teachers.  Top on the list is – be mindful and focus on one day/hour/minute at a time otherwise it becomes too overwhelming. Pat yourself on the back often for a good try. This is a journey in progress not perfection.  Whatever you take out of your way of eating – replace it with something better.  So for me the week with no grains- I took out the grains and put in a grapefruit or veggie soup. We will not be for want of food, only food choices. It gave me confidence in knowing that I was in charge of my food choices and that food does not stand on a pedestal and have control over me. Think about it- why does food have control over you?  If you are struggling with this, contact me and I can assist you in making better choices and  to make them stick.  Change may be difficult, but not if you approach it with a meaningful outcome.
 Be Well, Mary

Figure out what your goals and dreams are.So many people wander aimlessly through life simply go for whatever small thing they want moment by moment. Instead, decide what your perfect life consists of and begin to put the steps in motion to reach that place. The most satisfying thing in the world is overcoming a challenge and reaching a goal. We are the happiest when we are growing and working towards something better.
