“Measure twice, cut once!” This is timeless advice for a tailor or a carpenter. We’ve all heard this expression and maybe we’ve used it. But what does it say about the way people think?
It says that we all spend twice as much time and effort worrying about making a mistake than we do just going ahead and doing the right thing in the first place. This is, in fact, the way the human mind works. Whether it’s about cutting a plank, playing a game of cards, or cheering on our favorite team, psychologists have proven that we all hate losing much more than we enjoy winning!We choose to focus on the negative!
What’s this got to do with hormones? If you’re new to the idea of balancing your hormones as you age, then you may experience that “fear of losing” tendency and instead just tiptoe around all the good news and avoid making a decision. Don’t wander away from choosing a better path! Explore instead the wonderful lifelong benefits of bioidentical hormones! If your hormones aren’t right, then you’re not right!
Searching for reasons to avoid enriching your hormones and enriching your life keeps you “looking at the ground” rather than looking up at a sky full of great possibilities. For example, if you vacation at the beach, you don’t stay indoors all day because you worry about sunburn – you take proper precautions and good advice and enjoy life to the fullest in the sunshine. When you go snow skiing, you don’t stay indoors because of the cold – you choose the joy, exhilaration and beauty of the slopes even if your nose gets red!
The same thinking applies to hormone balancing – be informed, work with professionals and their good advice, and then get your hormones restored. Life rewards action! Get up and go! Get more life out of life – get much more vitality and sunshine out of life. Don’t choose your worries! Choose yourself and your dreams!
