Our minds need sound reason to change.
Change is only difficult, uncomfortable, unpleasant when we see more loss than benefit resulting from it.
A new diet can be difficult to maintain, uncomfortable, even unpleasant. We long, almost suddenly, for things no longer allowed. The box of crackers that’s sat in the pantry for months – the one we’ve paid little attention to – suddenly looks appealing. It suddenly tests our commitment to changing our diet.
When we feel uncomfortable about changing something – when that stale box of crackers seems more pressing than our wellbeing – our minds only see the loss.
Your mind is rational. It won’t change to your detriment.
Keep reminding it of the benefits.
