The Conflicted Mind…
Often time, when we are in the process of making healthier changes and trying to become the best-version-of- ourselves, we might have these feelings that tear us between 2 different directions; Inner Conflict. This inner confusions really shows herself especially from now until Jan 1st.
Where does this confliction come from? When our beliefs are not aligned with our TRUTH, we create a division amongst ourselves. It is what we’ve been conditioned to believe AND it is what we know as TRUTH.
Matthew Kelly tells us in his book, Perfectly Yourself, that “usually in these moments, we know what we should do. We know which of the options will lead to long-term sustainable happiness, but we are attached to the momentary pleasures.” Matthew Kelly also states, that sometimes, something that can begin as pleasure, can transform into pain. Ex: overeating, eating too much processed sugars, eating too late at night, not exercising, and not taking care of self.
We feel “entitled” to use the holidays as an excuse to disconnect. We convince ourselves that “it’s the holidays and we deserve a break.” We use food as our “pacifier” to overindulge into a cloud of food coma, so that we can let go of all personal responsibilities. What we are dismissing is the long term damage this mindset gets us in.
We seek food as our high, like a euphoric drug. When in all reality, we are confused because we know food allows us to “feel good” but it’s a temporary pleasure. When we set our goals, it’s imperative to seek long term satisfaction vs. temporary relief. I’m referring to allowing yourself to feel the way you want to feel in your body at all times, regardless of the circumstance (holidays, birthday parties, social gatherings).
My intention to help you experience the same joy and freedom I FINALLY have when it comes to the holiday season. These next few months we will identify and address the common struggles many people experience during this time of the year.
