The best medicine for being well is practicing an attitude of being well.
We are indeed blessed to have access to more healing modalities, fitness programs and food options than ever before. As fabulous as this is, it also can be quite overwhelming at times. How do you choose among all the offerings.
No matter what tools or methods you use, one thing is certain: Allowing and maintaining a healthy body and mind starts and ends with focusing on and being well, while staying in integrity with what YOU believe is necessary for success. If you would like to get and stay in the mode of groovin’ on life and choosing the path to wellness and fitness that is best for you, try this prescription of “multivitamins” and water.
The Ultimate Multivitamins: F and P
Vitamin F: The Power of Focus. All those who haveany understanding of the Law of Attraction (LOA) know that when it comes to aligning with anything, focus is everything. So it’s no wonder that using Vitamin F to your advantage is one of the keys to successful results in any health or fitness practice.
If your goal is to allow well-being and a fab bod with joy and ease, focus on conversations, experiences, thoughts and stories that are about joy and ease. The LOA is very much like “The Force” in Star Wars in the way that it responds to your point of focus. The more you use Vitamin F to point yourself in the direction of what feels good, the more the LOA will deliver good-feeling results and the bod to boot!
Vitamin P: The Power of Presence. If you want to thrive with a body and mind that feels good, accept the gift of presence. NOW is when we allow, and it is in this moment that your body gives you cues about what is best for you. Once you direct Vitamin F by declaring your intention to inhabit a strong, flexible, healthy, slim body, Vitamin P then gives you feedback in your gut that lets you know if what you are about to eat, drink or do is moving you toward or away from your desired destination. When you feel lighter—especially physically energized—this is something that jives with both what you want and your current beliefs, so rock on!
Remember that you alone are and always will be the best judge of what is best for YOU, even if nine out of 10 people choose the lard and banana miracle diet.
The WATER Formula™ for Well Being
If there is one thing that every school of health and fitness agrees upon, it is this: Stay hydrated by drinking water throughout the day. I believe water can give you even more than hydration, so each time you raise your glass, cup or bottle, apply the WATER Formula™ to get the most out of your “multivitamins.”
W: Be WILLING to focus on what you WANT.
When you awaken, throughout the day, and when preparing for sleep, use Vitamin F to affirm and open yourself up to allowing well-being, for example:
Affirm, “I am willing to feel better now.” Or, ask the question, “How can I feel better right now?”
Once you state your affirmation or put forth your question, use Vitamin P by paying attention to and acting upon any feel-good thoughts, ideas or opportunities that present themselves. You’ll be amazed by how quickly the proper use of Vitamins F and P can start turning things around!
A: APPRECIATION always leads to a great destination!
Start or end your day by making a list of what IS working and what you can and do love about right now. Make it your mission to focus upon any and every thing that you like throughout your day. Even if the items on your list or things you notice have nothing to do with the subject of health or fitness, the more you use Vitamin F to accentuate the positive aspects of your life and apply Vitamin P to feel groovy now, the faster you begin to shift your momentum from resisting to allowing your well-being!
T: Focus on the TRUTH that supports success.
Just as there certainly are true stories about drama and difficulty, there are also many true stories about people who have healed their bodies and minds and who enjoyed the journey of aligning with a fit, strong body. Use Vitamin F productively by seeking out and collecting evidence of well-being and success stories that support the truth that well-being/having a slim, strong body is possible and also can be possible for YOU.
E: EXPRESS to increase well-being.
EXPRESS to allow success by using Vitamin F to talk or write about ideas that increase good feelings and add power to what you want. Stay tuned in with Vitamin P and as long as you feel good, keep talking the good talk!*
R: RELAX to allow well-be-ing.
The journey is the destination, so if your destination is all about having a body and mind that functions with joy and ease, use Vitamins F and P to just let yourself BE. The more you chill, the less you ill! ‘Nuff said!
*If talking about health, etc., makes you feel worse rather than better, you can still express to increase well-being by talking or writing about a different subject that you can and do feel good about now. If even this feels like a stretch, sometimes the best medicine is to be silent, meditate, go for a walk in the park, watch a funny movie, take a nap or do anything that promotes quieting and calming your mind.
The Bottom Line on Allowing Your Success in Health, Fitness and Well-Being: Regardless of the path you choose, always remember that aligning with and maintaining well-being is the result of practicing an attitude of being well. Play more, stress less. Love more, criticize less. Carve out time to discover what moves and excites you, for when it all comes down to it, joy is and always will be the best medicine.
