Getting My Body Back Friday - Coming Out of your Comfort Zone to Better Health and Ideal Weight

As with anything in life, if you are to create change in your health and reach your ideal weight, you need to come out of your comfort zone. There are 3 levels of adjustment that are required to help you make the change your need to reach your goals. Let's look at them now.

Level #1 - Spiritual Comfort Zone

When we connect to our spiritual source and make our identification with Spirit we begin to draw life-sustaining energy that rejuvenates and enliven our cells in our bodies. We also begin to think of ourselves differently, as powerful spirit beings that's unlimited and not limited by our physical bodies. This renewed way of identification releases us from the societal pressure of thinking that we have to look a certain way to be accepted or to be worth anything. 

Level #2 - Physical Comfort Zone

Making the change from a passive lifestyle to a more active one requires making the decision to come out of one's comfort zone. What are you doing physically that's contributing to your poor health and increased weight? As you look at what you're doing on a regular basis, look at what you can do differently. 

Sometimes it's not in the major changes that creates the results, but the small consistent activities that can make a huge difference. So instead of going all out only to find yourself feeling overwhelmed and resenting the new change. Take it one step at a time. 

10 minutes walking each day will do you a whole lot of good than 1 hour once a month. Making small adjustments to your meals, one meal at a time each day, can help you achieve more permanent results than trying to change it all at once and then feeling intense cravings which leaves you feeling frustrated. 

Level #3 - Mental Comfort Zone

Your mind can help you move forward or remain stuck where you are. It influences you both on the spiritual and physical planes. Make the necessary adjustments in your thinking to shift you from where you are to where you want to be. 

What can you do right now to change your thinking patterns to enhance your health and weight goals? How do you see yourself? What can you do to change the way you think about and see yourself? Do you see yourself as whole? Remember, when you get your mind in the right gear everything else follows along. Removing the mental blockers that keep you hostage to ill-health and increased weight will steer you in the right direction. 


  1. You are so right, Alicia. It all begins in our minds, with our thinking. Lack of exercise is a huge one, too. Thanks for your post. Hope you have a good day today. Susan

  2. Thanks Susan and so true. When we combine right thinking and exercise, we have a one two power punch. Have a good evening.
