YOUR LIFE A-Z QUIT
A SLOTH IS A GREAT ANIMAL TO HELP YOU QUIT
Just for today, one day out of your life, QUIT talking negatively about yourself and others. In order for you to do this, you must become aware of how negative you are. Awareness, as I have spoken about is the first step to change. Without awareness you do not really live life, you just exist. In order to live more fully it is important to QUIT doing things that harm yourself. It is often helpful to imagine that negativity is a big icky ball of green slime. Each time you are negative in your thoughts, words, or actions, that green slime attaches itself to your physical body. So by the end of each day you are covered with smelly, icky green slime that weighs you down. The way to QUIT slimming yourself is to QUIT that old habitual negative talk. A good technique to help yourself QUIT, is to wear a rubber band on your wrist and snap it each time you catch yourself being negative. The snapping sound keeps the slime away. If you are too self-conscious for that, then choose a different bracelet or watch than you normally wear. Each time you catch yourself being negative twist your bracelet or watch around your wrist once as an awareness building tool to help you QUIT. You can use this QUITTING tool to help you QUIT whatever it is you want to QUIT, but it is essential to QUIT talking negatively in order to be happier on a daily basis.
