I’m generally not a fan of diet-related fasting of any kind. However, when I read this quote from Yoko Ono, I was suddenly very much in favor of this kind of fast. A fast from negativity about our own selves.

Doing this might seem easy at first. But try getting through even just one hour without being negative about yourself or your body (in your own head). It’s surprising how often I’m reminded that my most “vocal” critic is actually that little voice inside my head. Can anyone else relate to this? I imagine the answer is, “Yes.”

So why not try and ignore that little voice? The one that tells you your body’s not perfect? Or the one that tells you you’re not lovable? Or the one that says you should be further ahead in your career? Whatever kind of negativity your mind is offering about yourself, ignore it. Try to shut that voice down. And this includes shutting down actual talking out loud about ourselves (in a negative fashion). I can’t tell you how many times I’ve complained about my body or my so-called “failures” to friends and family (often making myself a punchline).

What we say to and about ourselves matters. We hear it. We feel it. It becomes part of our psychological makeup on every level. So it only make sense that changing that “voice” from negative-speak to positive-speak would have a healthy (and happy) impact on our lives.

So why not join me in taking Yoko Ono’s good advice? If doing it for three days seems like too much, try doing it for just an hour, and then build upon it from there. The psyche you save may be your own.

(And remember: no matter what your health-minded goals are, you are beautiful and perfect in this very moment! The sooner you recognize this, the sooner any kind of goals can be achieved!)

Just start now

Don’t let anything — or anyone (not even yourself) — introduce the word “can’t” into your psyche. No matter where you’re at in your life, no matter what you might be facing, this moment is the perfect time to press the “start” key in regard to loving yourself, getting healthier, reaching for your goals — you name it. Never forget that you’re worth it. And yes, you can tell anyone who might disagree that I said you definitely are worth it. (No sh*t! I truly believe in you!)

So whatever small, medium or giant step you might be facing today… Take it!

Your psyche is listening

5:02 pm - Posted by Gregg

Repeat after me: You. Are. Amazing! In fact, you are perfect in this very moment. No matter what wonderful, life-changing goals you might have set out for yourself.

You can accomplish those goals. Trust me… You can. But you’re likely to accomplish said goals a lot faster (and while being a lot happier) if you think of yourself and speak of yourself as a friend, rather than someone you detest.

Your brain hears you. Your mind hears you. The world hears you. So let the world and, more important, yourself hear the news: You are the most incredible, most beautiful, most fabulous person ever! And yeah… A supermodel! (Believe it!)

Own your perfection

1:05 pm - Posted by Gregg

No matter what you think, you are perfect in this moment. Yes, you — you specifically!

And yes, perfection can accomplish change — but change is more likely when the want comes from a positive place of loving yourself. When I was able to finally take off over 250 pounds of excess weight, it was because I was loving myself in the “now.” When I hated myself, I just kept getting bigger and unhealthier. When I started looking in the mirror and seeing myself as a friend (and as terrific in the moment), real change started to occur. So next time you look in the mirror, remember that you are a supermodel. (True story!)

Love your body

2:44 pm - Posted by Gregg

Exercise because you love your body. Not because you hate it. Your body is perfect right now…right in this moment. No matter how much you weigh, no matter what size clothing you’re currently wearing. The better we feel about ourselves, the more likely we are to initiate positive and lasting change. You matter! (Believe it!)
