Fibro Challenge Day 1

It’s Starts with a Healing Mindset

Over the next 5 days my goal is to help you set the foundation for optimizing nutrition when it comes to fibromyalgia

And to start us off…

Day #1: A Healing Mindset

You might be wondering why we are talking about mindset when the focus for the week is on nutrition.  Mindset is a major key to healing and that MUST come first before anything else. Today, you will gain insight on how to maintain a positive attitude. What you will learn today is the greatest concept you could ever learn about healing.

Practicing mindfulness requires introspection and staying in the present moment–the only place where change is possible, since the past is already over and the future has not yet begun. This is really where we get in touch with reality and become aware of our negative thoughts, emotions, and actions as they are, without exaggerating or minimizing.

When we are mindful, we are fully aware of where we are, where we want to go, and how we can go about getting there. Awareness sets a path for success. This is why mindfulness and self-compassion are so crucial for our health.

For today…

DAILY CHALLENGE:  GUIDED IMAGERY

This exercise is very similar to meditation. With guided imagery, you focus your thoughts on a place or an image that creates positive feelings; this redirects you from negative thoughts. You can do this in many positions you find comfortable.

Instructions

  1. Find a quiet place
  2. Choose the position that is most comfortable for you and close your eyes.
  3. Take slow deep breaths.
  4. Start to picture a place that makes you feel very calm or safe.
  5. Focus your thoughts on this place. Is it warm? What sounds do you hear? What do you feel?
  6. Keep your thoughts on this place for a few minutes or until you feel relaxed.

TIP: If imagining or remembering the place is too difficult, find a picture that you can look at instead to focus on. It can even be a piece of art in your home that you find relaxing.
