I have secondary progressive MS that I have kicked to the curb with diet and lifestyle changes. Yes, that’s right, I manage this disease through my daily life choices. So I hold a strong belief that we can take control of our lives to create lasting and meaningful change for ourselves.
One of my regular practices for taking control of my life is to ask myself, “If I got it all right starting today, what would my life look like one year from now?”
Many of us stopped imagining our future once we became adults. We settled into a routine and stopped imagining other alternatives. As a result, we got stuck in a rut, and for many people that has lead to a lack of fulfillment and a lack of health and well-being.
So let’s visualize an alternative. Take a step back and ask yourself, “What would it look like if I got it all right?” Watch the video above, and I’ll explain how to answer this question in detail.
If trying to get it all right feels overwhelming, start with a single aspect of your life. If you exercised every day, what would life look like in a year? If you ate better, what would life look like? If you studied toward your degree, what would next year look like?
Pick something to work on, find your support group, and get moving. Start small and build momentum. I believe in you.
