So here I am, on day one. In the interests of full disclosure, it’s not really Day 1. I started Slimpod for the first time over 6 months ago, and I felt very good for the first few days. But life was truly overwhelming at that time and I really didn’t have the capacity to put anything new in my head. But now I do, and I figured “Hey, if I’m restarting anyway, let’s share the journey from the start!” (You can just rewatch everything, like I did, or you can have Cusomter Services reset your access).
The first time I listened to the pod, I listened consciously (which you don’t need to do). I wanted to know what the words were first, before I let them play casually in the background. I couldn’t imagine playing it while I sleep without knowing what it was! So after listening through it through once, I was ready to trust the process, but in a way that was going to work for me.
Which is why I prefer to listen to the pods during the day. At night, I find that they make me a bit restless. Going to sleep at night is the one time of the day when I feel like I can truly let my mind relax and have my thoughts go wherever they want. I really didn’t want to give up my number one relaxing moment for the day. So I listen to the pods in my lunch break, sometimes on repeat (also not necessary, but i find it calming).
I know that I’m prone to being too much “in my head”, and sometimes struggle to be aware of how I’m treating myself and how best o maintain my mental and physical wellbeing. I feel good about Slimpod, and I think it might benefit me in more ways than just weight loss.
