Small steps towards healing!

Today it feels like autumn. I am here in my balcony seepinget hot coffee and soaking in the Sun and the breeze is streaking gently my hair! It is beautiful.
I owe you an update programwise. I gave myself a set of rules that I have to follow!  It shocked me that almost all of them had to do with my basic needs, proving how poorly I was treating myself. Most important rule the lights go out at 1.30. I was mostly able to follow that and although it has been less than a week my sleep benefited greatly. I also keep the drapes open so I can maintain a normal sleep cycle and I got used to it much faster than I originally thought!
Second rule many mini meals. That made a huge difference!
Third rule back exercises, well to be honest I only did them twice, but I will get back on track!
Rule number four meditation and eft exercises. Those two are really allowing me to focus on myself.
As you can see my main goal is healing and I think this is a great start. As I getc more comfortable into my new routine I will make a more elaborate schedule or perhaps it won't be needed!  I chose to keep things light in order to not overwhelm myself!
It was time to become my own life coach!

It's so important that we take an interest in our health. For so long I let myself go. Ate whatever I wanted when I wanted. Didn't sleep well and allowed stress to control my life. The result? Health problems. I am feeling so much better now that I have taken control. It only gets better and better. Keep up the good work.

I try to do at least 10,000 steps a day! That seems to help.

Taking care of oneself usually comes (at least for women) behidn taking care of at least a dozen "more important" tasks. I wonder whether we would treat our car the same way... "What do you mean, you're running on empty? You have to go another hundred miles before you can have more gas!"

Baby steps. If you bring them in slowly get used to them and then bring in a few more changes. You will be surprised that in a short time you have made huge life changes. That's waht I did and now I'm down over 25 kilos and doing some form of exercise every day. 12 months ago this would of been unheard of. You go girl xxx
