Ready to make a change? Celebrate National Toss Away “Could Have/Should Haves” Day with these tips from Medifast Registered Dietitian, Suman Tohan.
The purpose of this holiday is to write down all the things you wish you had done (your could haves and should haves) and throw them away! That’s right. Toss them.
Living in the past can be debilitating and may prevent you from accomplishing your goals. Look to the future instead. Have a plan, clear your mind, picture the outcome and just do it! Forget those “could haves” and “should haves.” Live in the moment and be here now. Here are three other things you can liberate yourself from when making a positive change:
- Ditch the extra clothes. Odds are that there are many extra clothes that either don’t fit you, won’t fit you, or you never wear at all. Shedding these unneeded articles of clothing will do you good. Understand that a key factor in reaching any goal is weeding out the unnecessary. Take this opportunity to lose what you don’t need in order to gain what you do need.
- Rid the junk in the kitchen. We eat what is in front of us. The truth is, we have total control of the contents in our kitchens. If you rid the unhealthy food and replace it with delicious and nutritious variants, you will not only feel great but you will look great too.
- Eliminate negative activities. In re-evaluating your current state (could be a job, a home, a location, a friend circle), you are able to see what is doing you well and what is hurting you. Replacing negative activities with positive ones will provide you with an oasis of peace and clarity.
Now you can decide what to treasure and what to toss with these simple tips. In losing the bad and welcoming the good, you will be able to focus on the healthy and positive lifestyle that you deserve.
Remember that you are only one person and change is gradual. Sometimes the best way to success is to take your time. Keep your goals realistic and approach each one with a positive attitude. You with surely surprise yourself with what you can achieve.
