Just what I needed to read today!
This article may be old, but the message is as timely now as it was then. Very timely for me because it is something I have been thinking about much since New Year's, and it has been resonating well.
Great method to approach and attack any opportunity!
Thank you for your suggestions. It will make me accountable. Thank you for sharing.
This article is eleven years old! :D
For my diet, my doctor recommended a meal tracking app, and I think it's helped somewhat. I also found mood tracking apps for more than just eating. Give them a shot!
I was so impressed by your article that I decided to write about each step for behavioral change in my journal! Hey, if this is the way to be healthy, brain strong and functional in my later years, I'm gonna take notes! Thanks so much!!
Reflecting is key to learning.
Thank you for this article, it has given me things to ponder and to put into practice.
One of the best, intelligently written articles on Sparkpeople. Well done.
This article really resonated with me. I'm going to translate my proven praxis skills into various areas of my life; including my career and job search.
I will be using these concepts for more than weight loss!
Knowing the actual steps involved in this type of behavior change (Praxis), with an explanation of the how's and why's is exactly what I need to make changes. I will apply this process to more areas of my life than weight loss. THANK YOU!
