Attitude Diet Days 1 and 2

I work 3 days a week in an addiction clinic. We specialize in Eating Disorders…this is great because we ALL(at least in America) have some disordered eating. My patients inspire me to not only eat well and exercise, but to look for projects, journaling and other activities to improve us all. This week we started the 4 day Attitude Diet I mentioned in my last post.
Day 1 we kept a list of 50 positive things that happen to us…this helps so much if done daily…it really is about keeping the focus on positive events and ignoring things that aren’t positive not about getting to exactly 50 things. I did get to 50 on day 1 and day 2…by keeping a running list on my smart phone…
Day 2 list:

Commitment as far as time goes.
Ideally, ya start over every Monday for a few weeks until these healthy positive thought patterns are habits.
Day two was a bigger challenge for the average negative thinker…I think we can be to hard on ourselves…so be kind to yourself and take some time to think of this next list…ya are going to make a list of your life accomplishments…give yourself credit in a list for all the good positive things ya have done.

  1. Urs! This post is SO inspirational! I have a client that has just begun a mental health & wellness online community & I think it would be right up your alley!
