Positive thinking

Positive thinking.

‘Tell me what you eat, I’ll tell you who you are”. Jean Anthelme Brillat-Savarin. To have a healthy body you also need a healthy mind and vica versa.
You can’t have one without the other hence the importance of working on both of these during the program.

The type of energy you surround yourself with can determine how successful you are.
How can you hope for positive outcomes if you  focus on the negatives in your life ? What I often notice in the field of nutrition is a focus on what you shouldn’t eat, on what illness you’ll get if you eat this or that or how much the food we choose is bad for us. This only creates a feeling of guilt, of lack of empowerment and of failure.

If you only see yourself as a person who eats badly, who is fat, who doesn’t look good and you dwell on these aspects to try to motivate yourself then it will not happen. Why ? Because you surround yourself with negative thoughts and negative energy.

You have to work on being less emotional about your eating habits, be realistic and know first your strengths and then your weaknesses. Then, make sure you focus on the positives and work on the weaknesses one by one. If ever you feel less motivated, write a list of every positive habit you already have.

What you think about yourself determines what you do. How you plan and see your future often becomes reality. In formulating the right goals you are more likely to mobilize all your inner ressources in order to succeed. It is a matter of time before the changes manifest themselves. I work a lot on this aspect in my consultations. I will help you find and direct that energy to transform your goals into reality. After that, the power to implement the recommendations I give you only comes from yourself, but I will guide you.

Note: ‘A healthy mind in a healthy body.’ Science confirms more than ever this Latin saying. Researchers, for example, continue to prove the connection between mind and body. Physical activity reduces symptoms of depression and anxiety and increases attention span by acting on the brain neurochemistry, its rate of oxygenation and the connections between neurons. On the other hand it takes a particular mindset to be able to exercise often and to eat healthy. Body and mind, the two go hand in hand.

All the best,
