We’re nearly at the end of the first month of 2018 and I’ve no doubt most of us have given up on our well-intentioned resolutions! What were they?
- Lose weight
- Give up alcohol
- Be positive
- Make some money
- Be nice
- And so on
or is that just me? If only it were that easy!
I was given a book for Christmas called ‘The Power of Your Subconscious Mind’ by Joseph Murphy. It’s very much about positive thinking and tapping into your subconscious mind to improve your life and I truly believe that it’s possible. He says the principle reasons for failure are lack of confidence and too much effort. I’m definitely going to give it a go!
It’s so easy to get into habits that are hard to break and to take the easy route – eating and drinking the same things over and over again because it’s easy, watching television because it’s easy, procrastinating because it’s too hard to do it NOW, not exercising because it’s harder than exercising – you can see where I’m going with this! As my husband says – ‘Fail to plan, plan to fail’. There’s no doubt that planning your day, making a list of tasks to be done, perhaps with a time to do them and a time constraint, can make a huge difference to your life, not least the satisfaction of knowing that you have achieved something. I found making a menu plan for the month not only took away the anxiety of not knowing what we were going to eat, but I could also plan it so that we had a wide variety of foods and saved money by having little to no waste = better health and more money – win win.
I’m still trying – still got a long way to go. As they say, there’s no time like the present!
Despite the fact that it's so hard to change our habits and our way of thinking, one easy positive change is to take the right supplement. If your problems are caused by inflammation, which is the culprit for many ailments including joint problems, turmeric is a powerful alternative to NSAIDs. The capsules from Blue Wave Naturals are formulated to greatly enhance the benefits of turmeric which means you can take less than if you use other brands, or raw turmeric on its own. You can buy these with confidence, in bottles of 60 or 90 capsules, from Amazon here: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B014BX1IPC.
