Weight Loss Tip # 27: Be of Service
Being of service does more for you than it does for the person or people you are serving. Consider approaching social situations from a standpoint of “how can I be of service” and you will find you enjoy yourself more and find yourself less triggered to stray from your healthy eating program. Is a class reunion, wedding or another party around the corner? Are you a little bit nervous about how you will stay on your healthy eating program while at the event? Especially if you are experiencing anxiety around a social situation, look for a way to be of service. Call the hostess and volunteer to help with something. It could be as simple as setting up chairs. When you approach an event from a position of service you will take the focus off yourself. It will not be “all about me.” Your worries and anxieties will be put in a much healthier perspective.
