Obsess: to dominate or preoccupy the thoughts, feelings, or desires of (a person)
We live in a world in which being called obsessed carries a negative connotation. Part of me can understand that, but the truth is that it all depends upon the object of the obsession.
But I’m not interested in talking about the negative. I want to talk about the ways that obsession, that being obsessed, is healthy.
Here’s a hint: Healthy obsessions revolve around being obsessed with your health.
Being obsessed with your health is a very good thing. And you need to be obsessed with your health, if you want to do anything to change or improve your health.
Being obsessed with your health means your health dominates your thoughts, feelings, and desires…which, in turn, will dominate your actions.
Being obsessed with your health means you will always make the right choice of food. You won’t cheat. You will remember that your health matters and eating carbage does nothing to help you.
Being obsessed with your health means making real changes in your life to put your health as a primary focus for your daily life.
So are you obsessed? Does your health dominate your thoughts? When you have the option to eat bad food, do you refuse that option? Have you disciplined yourself based upon your obsession with your health?
If you didn’t answer “yes,” then you need to start obsessing.
Start obsessing about eating plenty of good fats.
Start obsessing about eating no sugar (none…at all…period).
Start obsessing about focusing on your goals for your health.
Start obsessing about looking forward to making the RIGHT food choices everyday.
Start obsessing about making your health a dominant force in your life.
Being obsessed about your health is a VERY good thing. Don’t be afraid to obsess about it.
