I do notice a difference in the thoughts between thin thinkers and big thinkers. One of the differences I notice is how big thinkers when they have eaten something that is not so healthy they metaphorically beat themselves up and then feel huge levels of guilt. Whereas slim thinkers when they eat something unhealthy, they go’ oh well’ and brush it off because they know they will be eating healthy again most of the time.
Does being harsh on yourself make you feel good?
Probably not, We are not going to eat healthily if we are feeling bad about ourselves, so we have to change the way we talk to ourselves.
How do you stop?
It’s very easy to say – oh just stop it, but when you are there in the moment it’s harder to do it.
Here are some of the things you can do to stop
- Recognise when you do it and pause for a moment
- Take 3 deep breaths with no thoughts
- Think of one thing that you do like about yourself
The first step to change is recognising when you do this and then you can go about changing it.
