Reminder #44: Optimizing your Mind and Body with Gratitude


You might be tempted to scroll all the way down to open your gift – just know that if you do so, you might miss the more subtle gift that’s embedded in this week’s message.

Are you new to these Weekly Reminders? You might like to know that your subconscious mind is accountable for 90% of your daily decisions. If all you do is read this blog (but put nothing into practice), you are already sending a positive message to your subconscious mind. Congratulations! The more similar messages it gets, the better decisions you will have.

One thing I’ve discovered to be true again and again is this:

The more grateful you are for your past (even the difficult times), the more faith you will have in your future. And the more faith you have in your future, the more likely you are to set ambitious goals and actually make progress towards them.

I invite you to write (or make a list in your head) of all the past events or experiences that you’ve had during your lifetime which you can look back on with gratitude. Start each item on your list by saying “Thank you for…”: Think of the memories your parents shared of your birth or your early childhood, think of your school years and what you did when not in school, think of your teen years and your early 20s, keep going all the way up until today.

Now is a good time to formulate a new “memory of the future.”

  1. What experiences would you like to be grateful for in the future?
  2. What are your dreams and aspirations?
  3. What would you like to list in your next round of “thank you’s”?

Wishing you a fantastic holiday season filled with moments of gratitude and deep connections,

Ginny Santos, your holistic coach.

I know we all fall into routines and habits that are not always the best for us. Snacking in between meals doesn’t have to be one of those “bad habits”. Here are 10 delicious snack recipes to help you try a better form of snacking. I hope you will enjoy this Snack Pack!
