Losing weight is a body, mind and spirit proposition. Eating right and moving more are important which is why you will find tons of easy, healthy recipes and weight loss tips. The mind and spirit are integral too which is why I collect and share motivational quotes. Words have power. A steady supply of inspiring words are also essential to my success.
I love devotionals. I've been reading them daily for years. I've decided to begin sharing a weekly devotional specific to weight loss. I've found it helpful to read and re-read it every day of the week, until I have it committed to memory. The positive words soak into every part of my being refreshing me and giving me strength.
My hope and prayer is that they do the same for you.
This week's devotional is one that I really need. As someone prone to delay gratification until all the work is done, I have a tendency to miss out on opportunities for pleasure and fun. This can lead to feelings of anger and resentment which can cause me to dive into the cookie jar with both hands. I've discovered that when I schedule time for enjoyment into my days and weeks I'm much better balanced and less prone to emotional eating.
My Weekly Weight Loss Devotional: Time Management
"I manage my time by planning for accomplishment and enjoyment."
An inner voice of intuition is quick to remind me that I may not have time enough in one day to finish everything that I would like. Yet, when I do plan ahead for my day, I prioritize. And prioritizing helps me balance what I need to do with what I would like to do. I then manage my time, and I am able to enjoy my day.
As I use time management to organize, I use my time wisely and efficiently. Gone is the hurried feeling that I experienced when I suddenly remembered a commitment at the last minute. Gone is the sensation of being overwhelmed with things to do around my home.
Considering my schedule, I may include time for reading a lighthearted book for pure enjoyment. I may decide to see the movie that showed so much promise in a preview I saw weeks ago. I make time and I take the time to do those things I wish to do much more than need to do.
"The uneven ground shall become level, and the rough places a plain." ~Isaiah 40:4
