To give you an example, about a year ago I read a post which was meant to help his readers to take action by performing simple tasks. Here's what he said,
If you have a lot of dirty socks on the floor, you don't have to place all the them in the hamper at once. Just pick-up one sock. Then the next day, pick-up another sock and do the same thing the following day until all the socks are off the floor.
I coupled that with what a therapist advised me to do. The therapist said, "When you do something good for yourself, or when you perform a task you've been putting off, just sit with it for a few minutes."
Changing My Life from Within
The last post I published discussed how I am changing slowly, but surely. It is those two things and a few other that are helping me change from within. When I do some good I sit with it for a few minutes.
After a few months of practicing that advice, I stopped beating myself up as much to the point where today it is almost non-existent. And if I begin to beat myself up, I know how to quickly change the thoughts!
