Decide (PCOS Healing Mindset: Part 5)

The last element of the PCOS Healing Mindset is the decision to be the agent of your healing. This sounds simple, but really every step begins with a choice. You are the person in charge of your healing...not me, not your doctor, not your mom.

Let me say that again, you are the person in charge of your healing.

I want you to look back at why you want to heal. In the envision exercise from Part 1, you thought about what you would do if you were healed, how you would think about your body, and how you would love yourself. I want you to go back to those reasons why you want to make changes and why you are deciding to heal.

As a final exercise, I want you to write an intention statement for your healing process. Here is an example…

From this point forward, I choose to listen to my body, to acknowledge that we are on the same team, and to make changes in order to heal BECAUSE…

Fill in your WHY’s to finish the statement. Because you want to get pregnant. Because you want to feel empowered in your career. Because you want to have clear skin. Because you want to feel in touch with your cycle. Feel free to create your own intention statement from scratch. What matters is that it resonates with you and can be a source of encouragement to you.

Nothing happens until you decide. Make a decision and watch your life move forward.
