Focus on yourself for a change

Although you may be busy doing things for others, make time to devote to your well-being! Have a positive focus to keep you going:
  • Focus on the good things in your life and not the bad.
  • Focus on the things you have, not the things that you don’t have.
  • Focus on the ‘now’. Now is a great place to be living your life in a positive way and doing everything in your power to improve your way of thinking, eating, drinking and your fitness levels.
  • Make time for you and plan your action. It was Benjamin Franklin that said ‘failing to prepare is preparing to fail’. Plan your weight loss by doing the proper preparation and by making good choices. It does wonders for your mood and motivation when you know that you are ‘on it’.
