By making the choice to have weight loss surgery, we made a commitment to a healthier life. But the health of our body is greatly influenced by the mind. Therefore it is equally important to take care of the spirit. Do loving things for yourself. Speak words of encouragement and praise to yourself and others around you. Take time for self care, treat yourself to a massage or a day to lounge and read a book, or try a new hairstyle. When you take care of the whole self you begin to look at yourself through a new set of eyes.
As we sleep, our eyes develop a fresh covering for the new day. When we open our eyes, the old layer peels back, revealing a fresh new set of eyes. Just think about it. The average U.S. life span is 72.5 years. That’s over 26,000 new mornings, 26,000 new opportunities to see yourself and your life in a new way. How you start your day is crucial, your mood and attitude in the first few minutes, set the tone for the rest of the day. Start each day as you would want it to be, bright, hopeful, energized and full of joy!
