If Abs are made in the kitchen, then dreams – whether they are for career, family or fitness, are made (or unmade) in your thoughts.
If you are someone who BodyRocks the daily 12 minutes, eats super healthy and clean, but then plays the same negative self talk in a loop everyday you are doing yourself a grave disservice. True fitness is a fusion of a healthy state of mind, body and spirit. Being a BodyRocker is about being kind to yourself so that you can be the best version of you possible in all the other roles you play – mother, friend, parent, partner.
Changing the thoughts you tell yourself can be a challenge. My mother took Sean and I to task on this when we were very young. Each morning before we woke for school she would open our bedroom door and slip in her “ghetto blaster.” While we still slept she would pump in tapes of positive affirmations – most of the time blended into what only can be described as the worst elevator music you have ever heard. Some days we woke up to Anthony Robins telling us that we had “Unlimited Power” to accomplish our dreams in life. From Wayne Dyer to Staurt Wilde, Mom aquatinted Sean and I with all of the “New Age” gurus – anyone that would gush positivity at us. We moaned and groaned, threw pillows and hid under the blankets. At first it felt like torture. Mom kept at it. Eventually we started to listen, and somewhere along the way we started to internalize those “can do” messages. Mom’s shot gun approached to positivity worked :)
Whatever way you decide to shift your thoughts towards positive, supporting patterns, just please remember that this is just as important (if not more so) than the workouts and diet. BodyRocking brings all 3 together – body, mind and spirit – so get over giving yourself a hard time and start loving you as much as the rest of us do :)
