Mindset Shift Is Everything

“Small mindset shifts equal BIG Results, over time.” 

Around the time I started running, I also started cleaning up my thoughts through a mindset shift. The running helped, but I was becoming more and more conscious of what I had been telling myself–things that just weren’t true! I started to become friends with my anxiety.

Mindset Shift

The habit of thinking negative thoughts had become an unconscious habit and behavior that was driving everything I did. I was functioning at a low level and not achieving what I knew I was actually capable of.

My mindset shift started with listening to anything positive I could get my hands on and reading many books focused on thinking empowering thoughts.

What truly helped me was being plugged in (with earbuds) to positive speak constantly. Even if I zoned out and wasn’t consciously listening, the positive words were still getting into my subconscious. I’d YouTube talks given by Wayne Dyer. He became my go-to life and spiritual advisor. I was overwriting the negative programming that had gone on for too many years.

Upgrading Nutrition

Of course, when you exercise regularly and begin to get fit, your body has different food needs. So I also began to look at what I was buying, cooking and eating. Around this time, my oldest daughter decided to become a vegetarian. This, combined with my new fitness routine of now running 3-5 miles three to four times a week, required me to rethink our meal planning, especially after my youngest followed suit a year or so later.

Of course, the first thing most people ask when you don’t eat meat is, where do you get your protein. (Same question I was asking myself at that time.) I began to research foods that contained protein and incorporate that as well as more fruits and vegetables.

As I began researching, I started to see that I had become like most others: unaware of the heinous amounts of sugar and unidentifiable ingredients in our foods. I started shopping the perimeter of the supermarket and avoided the aisles, where most of the processed chemical-laden boxed foods are kept.

Now there was a fire lit inside me, like none before. I couldn’t get enough of the information about how simple it is to avoid unhealthy foods and improve one’s diet and nutrition and how there’s an epidemic of poor nutrition, uninformed consumers and many children on their way to Type 2 Diabetes.

Awareness Shifts Mindset

All of this awareness led me to completely turnaround my lifestyle and my purpose. I gave up any medication (do not do this without consulting your doctor). I transitioned from running to yoga, and I participate in a daily practice of meditation. I’m committed to helping other make small shifts that result in big changes. This is how I’ve made what look like big changes over the past several years: one step at a time.

Have you had a mind over matter experience, where you stopped telling yourself you couldn’t do something and then went ahead and achieved a goal?

    A handful of my blog visitors have complained about my website not working correctly in Explorer but looks great in Firefox.
    Do you have any tips to help fix this problem?

  9. A motivating discussion is definitely worth comment. I think
    that you need to publish more on this subject, it may not be a taboo matter but generally
    folks don’t speak about these issues. To the next!


  10. Have you ever considered about including a little bit more
    than just your articles? I mean, what you say is fundamental and everything.

    Nevertheless imagine if you added some great images or video clips to
    give your posts more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but with images and
    video clips, this site could certainly be one of the greatest
    in its niche. Very good blog!

    At all times follow your heart.

  13. I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my
    own blog and was curious what all is required to get set up?
    I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?
    I’m not very web smart so I’m not 100% sure. Any recommendations or advice would be greatly
    appreciated. Kudos
