Getting my body back Friday - Living in the Power of Now to Maximize Workout and Health Benefits
Visualization of your ideal weight and optimum health plays a vital part in keeping you focused on your target. But when it comes to working out, your mind needs to be present, be here now.
Don't just do the routine exercise. Focus on what muscles you're working out. Feel the muscles being put to work. You'll better be able to isolate the muscles and properly target the muscle group you're working on.
Pay attention to your breathing, as you're taking in fresh oxygen and releasing the bad air from your body, feel what's happening to your body and consciously recognize the cleansing breath you're taking in. Get your mind actively involved in this process as you direct the inhaling of positive energy and releasing of the negative.
Particularly when you're brisk walking and jogging, you need to draw in more oxygen. And as you breathe deeply, oxygen moves through your body giving you more energy to keep going.
Have you ever sat down with a bowl of fruits and because you were preoccupied in your thoughts you didn't realize you had finished the entire bowl? Disappointment swept over your face because you didn't realize you were down to your last piece of fruit and you probably felt dissatisfied because you didn't get to relish in the flavour of the last bite.
When you are living in the power of now, you're able to enjoy every bite along with a sense of being full. Take the time to truly enjoy your food and not be in a hurry to get it over with. Enjoy all the flavours as they burst in your mouth.
Make a conscious decision to live in the power of now as you continue your journey to your ideal weight and optimum health.
