The power of conscious choice
At Whole Health Weight Loss Institute we strive for conscious choices and conscious consequences.
Every consequence begins with a choice. Every human being comes to understand this either through their own experience or the experience of those around us. In fact, we can go even further and say that our entire experience of life comes down to our choices. I’ll say this again: our entire experience of life comes down to our choices. What happens when our choices are automatic, hasty, unthoughtful or unconscious? We live unconscious consequences. We live unconscious lives.
A person who lives unconsciously will stumble into all sorts of unintended consequences. They will find themselves saying things like: “I don’t know how this happened,” “I don’t know why I feel this way,” “I don’t know…” – you get the picture.
At Whole Health Weight Loss Institute we strive for conscious choices and conscious consequences. We empower our patients to make intentional choices about diet and exercise so that they can see the results they expect and deserve from Bariatric surgery. So that they can live the lives they intend to live.
This is the power of conscious choice. The ability to take control of your life and emerge as the most complete, healthy, and whole version of yourself.
The fuel for conscious choice
Setting an intention every day is paramount to making conscious choices. Setting an intention, aligns your energy and spirit with your goals. It reminds you, at the outset of every day, of what is most important to you; of what is most important to your success in achieving your whole health.
An intention can be simple, such as a single word: exercise. Or, it can be more elaborate, outlining a plan for the day:
- I will choose protein first.
- I will avoid the 4 horsemen of obesity.
- I will devote 45 minutes to aerobic exercise today.
- I will choose consciously.
By aligning yourself with these thoughts, your actions will have the fuel behind them to be conscious and mindful.
It all begins with intention.
