Self-Discipline

I have been seeing a lot of posts and articles making suggestions on improving one’s self-discipline lately. Each of them focuses on the diet as the greatest catalyst for making the start.

The idea is, if you can be consistent with your diet, then other problem areas of your life will fall into place. I understand that very well. I know like most people know that controlling your diet is a major undertaking. It’s hard. Always eating and drinking the right thing be a challenge. But for me, that’s the easy part. Being that I’m a vegetarian eater [I try to eat a vegan diet but I don’t succeed 100% of the time but vegetarian is where I am most of the time], I eat plenty of the right things. The hardest part is refraining from eating and drinking all of the wrong, unhealthy things. I sometimes snack on things I ought not snack on.

 The funny thing is, when I’m strict and on point with my diet, I tend to be on point in other areas of my life as well. When I eat right, my fitness and exercise are consistent. When I eat right, I’m more mindful of some of the practices I vowed to improve in my life (i.e., community service; unity; improving my mind/self-development; renewed spirituality; etc). I hadn’t thought of it before now, but when my mind and heart are focused on maintaining a healthy diet, I tend to make healthy choices in other areas of my life. In fact, when I’m eating right and living right, I tend to make time to write new blog entries more regularly. I know I’ll really be doing well when I get back to writing the sequel to A Shattered Heart, fiction novel I wrote a few years back. I should have been finished long ago but that evil monster called procrastination kept rearing its ugly head and stopped me. By the way, you can get it for your Kindle or your Nook. If you’d like an autographed copy, let me know and I’ll hook you up.

Anyhow, I’ll get back to writing the sequel before the year is out. I promise.

One Response to Self-Discipline

  1. Good post. I agree! when I eat right =, all of my other decisions fall in line with eating right. I go on and off throughout the year with being a vegetarian. I have noticed that when I do go vegetarian, that all of my other decisions become better. I think its time to jump back on the vegetarian lifestyle.
