Mental~ Emotional ~ Cognitive Health and our Physical Health

Zig Ziglar

How do you keep yourself emotionally, mentally and cognitively engaged?
For me, this was HUGE to my physical transformation. I learned that whenever I felt down, verbally attacked, bad about myself I searched for food to comfort me. As a matter of fact it happened yesterday! Hubby and I got into a disagreement and all goals flew out of my head and wanted FAST FOOD FAST! But, knowing that about myself, I stayed strong...I redirected my uncomfortable feelings by crossing things off my to do list! I got engaged in progress and I felt better. By late last night when I saw hubby I had completely forgotten about our "tiff" and I hadn't gone down a path to lead me to more negative feelings! 
I don't always have success like that, but the key is to learn about ourselves so we CAN see progress in changing those mental and emotional obstacles.
