It is hard to believe that fall is upon us.
I hope you enjoyed the summer, while it was here. I know I did. I do like the fall season however, and always enjoy the beautiful fall colors and the cooler, brisk mornings. While fall typically signifies change, many of us like routine and may have a hard time adapting to new things. While routine can be good because it makes us feel safe and comfortable, it can also, at times, makes us feel stuck.
In fact, in the article, “Creating The Greatest Ideal of Yourself“, author, Dr. Joe Dispenza, says, “if you repeatedly think and act in identical ways on a daily basis, your brain will become molded into a specific hardwired pattern that will support the same level of mind. It’s ironic. Most people routinely think the same thoughts, perform the same actions, and secretly expect something different to show up in their lives. If however, you were to sincerely think about a greater ideal of yourself before you started your day, you would begin to make your brain fire in new sequences, patterns, and combinations.”¹ That is why he recommends doing something that breaks your routine. It can be as simple as taking a different route on your routine, morning walk. You might just see something different that sparks a new idea. You could also take a different route to work, to the gym, or the grocery store. Maybe you could try a new food item, such as a different vegetable, or prepare it in a new way. The possibilities are endless, but the point is to change it up and stimulate your brain!
Speaking of changing it up, fall is a great time to try out some new recipes. Many people are inside more and may have more time to experiment with some new foods. Why not pull out one of your cookbooks and dust it off?
You might just find a new recipe you love. You can also search Pinterest, or another food site. There are literally thousands of recipes to choose from. Find something that appeals to you and incorporates a healthy dose of vegetables, or some other fall favorite.
You can also invite over some family, or friends to share your dish. Who knows? It just might inspire you to keep going and keep experimenting with healthy food and that is a good thing!
