Thanks for the advice about my fall. I'm really lucky that no bones got broken because it was such a sudden and fast fall I didn't have time to reach out and help myself lessen the blow of the fall. Each day I'm better and have been able to keep up my walking exercise. I feel blessed!
Hi, I'm glad you enjoyed my blog about the reward cycle. Great idea to 'piggy-back' your habits - brewing the coffee is now the cue to empty the dishwasher - good job! I also like knowing that the more we action our good habits, the easier it becomes to establish other good habits. We start to seek the reward of 'feeling in control' or something. Another aspect of this is that it's all driven by risk (going back to animal evolutionary terms) so 'feeling in control' is a reward well worth seeking as it reduces risk immensely.
Turning on my computer cues me to sit here and chat (social reward) and is over-riding my running togs (strength/well-being reward)!
