Choose and Lose

Do you have a negative vibe around the word "lose"? It's understandable if you do. No one wants to be thought of as a "loser". Even the expression, What have you got to lose?, implies that you've pretty much hit rock bottom. How about looking at it differently?

Wayne Dyer had a wonderful expression,

If you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.

Let's try it with "lose" ... If you choose to take on some healthy (or healthier habits), you stand to lose ...

  • weight

  • many symptoms that accompany carrying around too many pounds, like high blood pressure, joint pain, plus the risk of becoming diabetic, getting heart disease or having a stroke, gallbladder disease, some cancers, and breathing issues such as apnea and asthma

Healthy habits can also help you lose ...

  • debt, when you decide to pay attention to finances and get help if you need it

  • anxiety and worry as your quality of life gets better

  • problems in relationships due to feeling better and being able to be more present to others (and to yourself!)

  • self-doubt through growing more confident as you see things improve

Healthy habits are also important if you want to lose ...

  • insomnia, low energy, and brain fog

And, I've probably missed countless other issues that can all be addressed by simply choosing to review and create some Healthy Habits while losing the ones that just aren't working for you anymore. Now what can you think of if I ask you, "What have you got to lose?" Let's face it -- it's not simply a matter of deciding to up end your life and take on Healthy Habits in the blink of an eye ... or is it? It definitely is more difficult trying to do it alone. If you've been thinking about changing up a few things, drop me an email and we can chat it out. I love losers!

Happy Healthy Habit Day!
