Making sure we have the right attitude and approach is vital here, and repeating some truths and empowering beliefs about our body and mind and our control over them, can help.
By focusing on positive messages and self-talk about our food choices, exercise habits, and bodies, we can start to make new habits and become healthier and more fulfilled.
Below you'll find 20 feel-good statements to help you create the healthy lifestyle that you want. Try each one on for size. See which ones feel best. Then repeat those several times a day for best results.
