Why You Really Don’t Want to Change

People resist change because they focus on what they have to give up instead of what they gain. Think about it, when you go on a 'DIET' you often say, I can no longer eat this or that. I can't eat after this time or I can only drink water. You're focused on what you have to give up. It puts your mindset in a very negative state.

What if instead you focused on all the things you will gain?

Since we are talking about food, let's suppose you are going to change the way you are eating each day. You've decided to eat produce and protein. I love that idea! I could see all those items inside the grocery store that I should no longer have on my plate. Instead I am going to focus on the produce section that often gets neglected. 

  • I'm going to try a new vegetable recipe 
  • I'll find a fruit I've never had before
  • Favorites veggies will fill my cart
  • I'll add in some fresh spices to give it a splash of Zing
  • I'll find a vegetable I can eat raw, eaten hot or eaten cold. 
  • I'll search for a fruit that I can eat the peal

Do you see where I am going with this? The produce section is the world at my fingertips. Our grocery stores can get just about any variety at any time of the year. 

Guess what? The meat department is very much the same, I can see the butcher or the seafood clerk or the deli counter for great protein sources. I can find more protein sources in the coolers and freezers. 

Think positive. You can positively change yourself, change your life for the better. The process doesn't have to be miserable. In fact the process of change is where all the focus should be. 

To Your Best Health,
