I recently watched a fascinating Tedx talk given by Gillian Riley that covers the mystifying subject of "The Mindset for Healthy Eating". It was a very poignant talk that touched very deeply into the power we all have within us to make choices and how having the freedom to make those choices is paramount to our success. In this talk the subject matter revolved around healthy eating, but in truth I think this mindset can be useful in every aspect of life. The choices we make take us in many different directions. Some choices are right and some are wrong. Either way, when we allow ourselves to freely make our own choices our chances for staying on track and beating out temptation become that much stronger.
The human brain is a very powerful and wonderful thing. It is the command center for our entire body and is capable of many wonderous things. Keeping that in mind, it is no wonder that our mindset plays a crucial role in our success, especially when dealing in areas around healthy eating. Have the right mindset and just about anything is possible. Have a negative mindset and success will be much more difficult to come by.
Of course this isn't "new" news but I do believe that Gillian's message hits home in a rather large way, that if we change our mindset and truly allow ourselves freedom of choice our very way of thinking begins to change. The things we used to crave no longer plague us. The goal we thought was impossible doesn't seem so far out of reach and in fact, is very doable. If you have a few moments I highly recommend checking this Tedx talk out. It may be the very turning point of thinking you have been looking for.
