Many years ago when I was suffering from bulimia, there was one night that I was laying on my bathroom floor covered in vomit and blood. During that moment I asked myself the question...
“Is this as good as it gets?”
With this question in mind, I want you to start thinking about the things in your life that you want to improve. Perhaps you could start by identifying broad areas of your life that need your attention. For example, you might see that your eating habits need to change, or that your mind-set could be more positive.
As you think about these things try to be as specific as possible. And don’t be afraid to take a look at ALL areas of your life. Think about your relationships, your work, your finances, your habits. Don’t let any area of your life go un-examined.
Next, I want you to divide all these “improvements” into two categories: things you can change, and things you can’t.
You see, there are some things in your life that you cannot change, no matter what you do. You can’t change your genetics, or your history. That’s not to say that it’s irrational to wish that those things were different. I’ve inherited some health challenges that I wish I didn’t have. And, there are some very painful things in my past that I wish I could erase. However, no matter how much I wish those things were different or didn’t happen, there is nothing I can do to change them. I have found though, as I’ve focused on the areas in my life that I can change, I’ve realized that I actually have more power and influence than I thought. I believe you will come to this conclusion too.
So, to get started, go to the link below, or login to your Body Groove On-Demand account and get started on your first day’s workshop and dance videos.
Here’s the link to today’s activities. Remember to watch the workshop first and then come back and do today’s assignment. Oh, and you can do today’s Groove’s at any time. Enjoy!
ASSIGNMENT FOR DAY 1:
Identify and write down the things in your life that you want to work on. Take as much time as you need and be specific. And, examine all areas of your life, both big and small. Next, I want you to categorize your list into things you can change, and things you can’t. Over the coming days, we’re going to take steps to make changes in the areas that you can control.
What are some of areas of your life that you’d like to work on? When you’ve listed these, place a check beside the things that you can change, and a cross besides the things you can’t.
