This warmer weather has us all thinking Spring, and for me, this morning, I’m thinking about my garden.
No, no, don’t fool yourself…
Not a physical garden, I wouldn’t know the first place to start with one of those.
I’m talking about the garden in our mind.
Every single action begins with a thought.
The unconscious mind controls the heart rate, blood pressure, etc.
The conscious mind is the "above the water" thoughts, such as logistical and emotional.
But make no mistake about it, any action begins with a thought.
Whether it's the choice to press the letters on my computer right now, or the actions of making a day a great one, they all begin with thoughts.
And that's the best part...
We can control our thoughts, we can shape our thoughts.
Our minds are a like a garden.
If we fill it with positive thoughts and dreams, we will live a positive and fulfilled life, full of bright and beautiful flowers.
If we fill it with negative thoughts, our mind will be overgrown by weeds and we will live a negative life.
Every day we have the ability to choose our thoughts, and those thoughts shape our actions.
In every opportunity, you have the option to look at it through a positive lens, and that choice determines the subsequent actions.
This is true for any facet of life, fitness just being one of them.
Fitness is surrounded by negative thoughts...
"I can't do that."
"This is going to suck."
"Look at her, she's so much better than me."
Remember, those negative thoughts lead to negative actions, and in fitness, a negative action is usually not taking action and just sitting on the sidelines.
The same applies to nutrition...
"Screw it, I'll just wait until Monday."
"I had a terrible day, I need a glass of wine."
Those thoughts are always going to lead to negative nutrition choices.
What's the difference between the guy who is 36 years old and looks like he has a constant frown on his face and the girl who is 96 years old and is full of brightness?
If you're reading this you have the choice to make every thought a positive one.
You can do this.
Above every cloud is blue sky.
