“Change is not something that we should fear. Rather, it is something that we should welcome. For without change, nothing in this world would ever grow or blossom, and no one in this world would ever move forward to become the person they’re meant to be.” — B.K.S. Iyengar
Why saying goodbye, letting go of some food, habits, loss of youth, identity is so hard?
There are a few non-negotiables for being healthy and vibrant. These are what we KNOW makes us feel better or worse. For example, avoiding sugar when you experience mood swings, having good sleep hygiene when you experience sleep issues or going for a walk to maintain your physical condition. Accepting these non-negotiables – the things we need to avoid, adhere to or include in our daily practices – accepting them is the first step to turn them into ACTION.
Saying goodbye to old familiar habits is HARD. It is so hard because our brain thrives doing what it has always done. That’s how we end up having 95% of our average 60,000 daily thoughts the same that the day before, mostly negative thoughts.
From familiar thoughts, the brain develops familiar patterns of EMOTIONAL experiences transferred to the body. When the brain finds a pattern that matches a reference stored in memory, it processes the experience as familiar or COMFORTABLE, even if generates anxiety, guilt, or discomfort in the long run. That’s how we end up returning to old habits even if it is unhealthy.
A way to embrace change and say goodbye to our non-supportive attitudes is to develop our sensitivity and capacity to manage primitive urges, to plan ahead, to create emotions on purpose and to change our focus. The Hormonal Reset program has been designed exactly to experience all of it so you honour your menopausal years while embracing your busy life in full vitality.
