In bettering our lives we can make small choices to improve each moment. Sometimes it’s a really difficult and intimidating mountain to climb when we take in all the grandeur of our potential. SO! Instead let’s just accept who we are today and improve one thing about how we think, or something we do, or what we say or choose not to say… Let’s be consistent with that one thing and work with it till it becomes a part of our lives.
Four years ago I changed one habit. I started having a green drink two mornings a week with my breakfast. Four years later I have a green drink with most of my breakfasts and sometimes with my lunch.
What’s a green drink? Mostly a dark leafy green vegetable with orange juice concentrate and water. A true green drink, counseled my NP, (after I explained to her that I had made a green drink with yogurt, milk, a bannana, oj, and some spinach), is mostly dark greens….add a little oj concentrate, but just enough to get it down. WOW! Yuck!….BUT! It’s changed my life in a couple of ways. One, I get in 2-4 servings of vegetables with this one drink. Two, because I choose to buy the ingredients, make the drink, and drink it, it has given me a realization of self-control. And three, my gut and skin thank me. I actually crave this now. Yes! Wow! It can be done. Start with higher doses of oj and work down!
I strongly believe any change you make can only be permanent when it comes from a place inside you that desires it for the right reasons, when it is a decision that reaps benefits you can feel, and when you can consistently practice making the decision till it becomes habit. What is some SMALL thing in your life you could add or take away that would improve your quality of living? If you need a nudge think, green drink!
2-4 cups spinach
1/8 cup oj concentrate
1/2 to 3/4 cup of cold water
