- Breathing consciously
- Assessing my hunger levels
- Non-judgement of people and situations as they occur
- Being flexible
- Being in the present moment
The above practices are important to me. I know that these are going to have to become daily practices in order to, number one, become good at them, and number two, to make them a habit. I know it takes three weeks to make a habit so I am going to go to work today and put these on a sticky note and tack them to my computer screen. I would like to make these second nature so I do them without thinking.
Yesterday was fabulous. Simply consciously breathing and assessing my hunger before eating seemed to calm my mind enough so that I was not thinking about food unnecessarily. Life is good! Today is great! 🙂
