I'm not suggesting that you deny problems but to face them in a positive way.
For example, I'm having to change a lot in my life right now due to having spine surgery. I'm use to being "super woman". My body was willing to do almost anything I wanted to do.
Now I am limited and have chosen to face it in a positive way. I'm finding ways to get what I need to get done even if that involves asking for help which is tough for me.
I'm not saying I don't have moments of feeling sorry for myself. I do, but I limit that time and make sure I end that time with a positive thought...like I'm lucky I still can walk and am able to lift light weights.
I think about Christopher Reeves and others like him. I think of my brother who has Parkinsons and then my "pity pot" time goes away.
We all struggle with something. We're all in this together.
Thinking positively will help you to take steps toward improving your health habits.
It's so important to remind yourself of that every day, several times a day, so you program your brain to be your friend.
