In week one, we talked about paying attention to the positive things in your life. This week's challenge is a play on the same idea: Whatever you feed grows.
This week, continue to feed the positive by eliminating negative words from your life.
How many times in a day do you engage in negative self talk? "I can't do this!" "My hips are too wide!" "I'm too slow a runner!" And how often do you complain about other things? "My husband never puts his dirty clothes in the hamper!" "My mother in law calls too early in the morning!"
We all do it, and it can a hard habit to break!
Give yourself a little visual (and physical) reminder of this week's challenge. Put a rubber band around your wrist and wear it like a bracelet.
When you catch yourself in a complaint, give the band a tug. SNAP SNAP!When you stop complaining, you have no choice but to focus on the positive. And by feeding only the positive, the good stuff grows and grows.
Have a GREAT (and complaint free) week!!
