I love sweets. Comes
from the genes. Jalebis, Gulab Jamuns, Brownies. I can go on and on and on.
Hi, my name is Vivek Slaria and I am a life coach.
What do I do, I help create routines to create the life you want to live.
Try this. It’s
not difficult. A bit awkward, maybe. Every time you look at yourself in the
mirror, say this to yourself “I love you, insert your name”. Look deep into your eyes, take in all the details,
spend some time looking at yourself and say “I love you, insert your name”. Make it a habit and practice
it. If this is too difficult, start with “I
love and approve of myself”. Do this every time you see yourself in the

revolted when a friend suggested this. Kya
hai yeh (What is this?), I thought. The friend persisted. No harm in
trying, at least no one is watching. The first time was really awkward. I just
could not bring myself to saying it. I pushed myself a bit. Over the next three
days I became a little comfortable in saying it to myself. Still felt as if I
was talking to a stranger.
It was on the
third day as I said this to myself that I felt a huge rush of love. I took in
all the details of my face, hair, my skin, my eyes and I said “I love and approve of myself”.
I love sweets
This is my story
of overcoming my sweets addiction. Mid night ice cream trips, coffee and
muffins, work breaks, anxiety breaks, just breaks. I love sweets. Not that I particularly
wanted to give up on sweets. No, quite the contrary. I loved them. Weight was
Weight was a
weighty issue. I did want to get rid of that. Exercise, diets & walks did
not work. Being a seeker, I decided to start questioning. Why was I over weight?
Because I consumed more than I needed to. Why was that? I learnt that the body
has a natural mechanism for telling us when we are satiated. Was that not
working? I do stop after some time. So no, not right.
Let me share a
suggestion for your consideration. Could it be that I consumed more to overcome
my insecurities? In a way I was holding on to my weight to feel more secure. What
if I replaced sweets with any other addiction for e.g. smoking, alcohol or anger?
Could this be the reason?
Within a month of
saying and repeating “I love and approve
of myself”, the urge for sweets and other junk disappeared naturally. Since
then I have left alcohol and started eating healthy. I am more at peace with
myself and everyone around me. The habit continues.
I write this
because I realized that there is an easier way. The way of habits built right.
This uses daily routines and natural laws to help create a life we are meant to
The world is
limitless. Shall we take the first step?
