Update: What have I been doing?

Saturday, December 28, 2019

Well, I am still reading the Secrets of the Eating Lab, it is a hard read though and is getting me thinking about my thought process and connecting it with my eating habits. I'll be posting chapter 4 soon. Soon, it'll get into the how to focus on lifestyle changes rather than diet plans to follow short term.

I found some videos on Bullet Journaling -- they make journaling look so artist and uncomplicated. But, for me, I am choosing to set up a plain looking one using my computer and printing out the pages for a three ring binder.

I am setting up my 2020 journal with a gratitude theme and one thing I want to track is gratitude. I seem to be lacking in this area in my life and I am surrounded by negative people. I am too easily influenced by their negativity and need to offset it. So, while I was looking for a cool looking page for my Bullet Journal, If found this:


It is not "cool" looking but it has prompts for me to get started on thinking that "Hey, my life isn't as bad as I think it is."

    One of the teams I belong to has a Daily Gratitude goal. I used to post to it every day, but slacked off this month. Definitely time to get back to it - or I could add one to the FOK team page if you think anyone would use it.

    We always seem to find ways to avoid showing ourselves gratitude. All the best in 2020!

    I looked into journalling, too, but I decided against making it "publishable". I guess if I had a day filled with exuberant joy that I wanted to commemorate, I would paint a picture and hang it on the wall. But I do think it is important to focus on gratitude each day. I'll join you on that.

    Especially during my parents' decline, I found daily prayer to be essential. I prayed for guidance to act so I was helping the situation rather than provoking problems. I went to a therapist weekly to review my process (yes, you can contract a behavioral therapist for a particular goal). Both the prayer and the therapy helped to keep me on a more even keel.
