I decided to multi-task a little this morning. I have a notebook that I keep where I write in some of my feelings and a lot of things that I read while on Sparkpeople. I decided to type it into my SP journal for a few reasons: I am practicing my typing, I am organizing the notes, and I am remembering things that I think are important.
One of the things that I had done for awhile and got out of the habit of doing is to write down five good things about myself every day. It could be something as simple as I have a good hair day. I had forgotten about this. I need to start this again. So, today I will start again: I caught up on my sleep, I will touch base again with an employment agency, I am practicing my typing skills, I am organizing my notes, I am doing things to improve myself and my surroundings today.
Another note that I can across was tips for starting a wellness program that struck me as important to review. 1. Write down goals and desires. 2. Ask what, when and how. Make a list of hurdles. Determine which ones are true obstacles to be worked around or find solutions to. 3. Have a plan. 4. Start a journal. 5. Begin my journey where I am standing right now. 6. Take one step at a time. 7. Learn from my setbacks. 8. Spend time cleaning house - both in my home and in my schedule. 9. Stop comparing myself to others. 10. Reward myself.
I haven't gotten too far in my book, but I though enough of these two things to write them down in a blog. I feel the need to remember these and do these things to help myself on my goal of improving myself this year.
