Day 7 update of the mental diet challenge.
All in all, a pretty good day. As I mentioned in the previous day’s update, I resolved to be more mindful of my states, to see if there was something I was missing. And I can honestly say that I didn’t see anything to be concerned about.
I did see some negativity, yes. But the key with the challenge is to not dwell in those states. And in that regard, I’m kicking proverbial butt.
Once I recognize a negative thought or emotion, I’m shifting gears.
Now, I haven’t followed through totally in focusing on solutions (if I had to pick one area where I need to work on improving…). So, maybe for that reason I should restart the challenge?
I’ll give you an example. Everything is going up; rent, bills, services. It’s all increasing. The one thing that isn’t increasing is what I earn. I haven’t totally focused on a solution to this.
But, I do have a plan to change all of that. What I really need to do, however, is kick it into high gear. I need to sit down and establish some time-specific goals for accomplishing my plans, so that I don’t end up in a precarious situation soon.
Anyways, enough about me. How is your progress in the challenge coming along?
