3.2 (G) After 28 Days
After 28 Days:
After this first month, journal what you have been able to change in your life, and what you are having difficulty with. Bring the awareness to the difficulties by writing them down. This brings it into the forefront. Just be sure that you are being as honest with yourself as you can. When you "don't find the time" for this, figure out why you can't find 5 min to take for yourself. If your "down time" is sitting in front of the TV that you feel you "need to do", think about why you can't tear yourself away for 30 minutes to take care of yourself. Or, better yet, lay a mat in front of the TV, so when you think you need to go to the couch, instead, go to your mat and stretch and relax. Remember, if you are trying to dedicate yourself to changing your old habits, you need to be sure that you allow these methods into your life more permanantly.
If you are doing well, and you are noticing a significant difference in yourself.. congratulations! But, it's at these moments that the mind may want to "test" you, or take you two steps back. This is normal in the process, so if or when this occurs, you need to be sure you don't lose sight of all your accomplishments so far. REALLY get strong with yourself.
Start reeling in the empowerment segment here. Feel the strength and power you have within to help lessen any fears, or distractions. You are NOT alone! Start taking the sensations you feel and allow them in, instead of fearing them. Be strong ... because you are!
