Hello! It’s me, Health & Fitness Expert Action Jackson, how are you?
No, really how are you doing?
Have you ever wondered what would happen if you really expressed the truth of how you felt when someone asked how you were doing? I know this statement is often viewed as a pleasantry, but what would happen if we could all find a safe place to tell someone how we really felt when someone asked this question. As I did a self-reflection upon this question and searched to make sure I had a safe place to express my truth, I couldn’t help but wonder what wasn’t true in my life and what needed to go. Whydid I think this?
I like you often say everything is great or going well, but is that really the truth? The answer is no... Therefore I had to go a little further as ask myself, if things aren't going well why am I holding on to them. In essence I started thinking about a life DETOX! You may be familiar with a health and fitness detox, this is great, but I want to did deeper and do a life detox!
What about you?
As we venture into another year, what is your truth? What do you need to detox from your life? Is it that job that drains your creative power, is it that dissatisfied feeling you get after having a conversation with that old toxic friend that you love so much but feel drainer each time you speak with them? At the end of the day what needs detoxing? Is it your weight that makes you feel less confident? Is it your self-defeating beliefs about your life and your future? I will ask you again. With only 15 days left in 2016, what is your truth and what do you need to DETOX from?
Challenge Activity: Take a piece of paper and fold your paper into four section and label each section as such ( Physical, Emotional, Financial, Spiritual). In each of these designated areas determine what is working, what needs to be added and what needs to go! Yes, what needs to go. For example, if in your emotional section you’re holding on to toxic relationships they need to go! If you have great relationships that nourish you, keep them and determine how you can assist them in growing!
As you complete this activity, I’d love to hear back from you! Remember toxins poison our lives!
