There are so many ideas out there about losing weight.
- No sugar, no flour
- Food Journals
- Intermittent fasting
- Counting Macros
- Counting Points
- Counting Calories
- … and endless advice on which foods are good for you and which are not (that has changed back and forth over the years).
I, for one, am overwhelmed.
But, the truth is… they all work… as long as you keep eating that way for the rest of your life.
For me, that takes most of them off the table.
We can listen to all the advice. But, in the end, each one of us has to figure out what works for our lives.
So, how do we organize all of this information in our brains without being overwhelmed?
My coach, Brooke Castillo, has given me a process to organize my thoughts, and I want to share it with you.
It is a simple, yet effective process.
- Become aware of the thought.
- Ask three questions – then make a decision. Do you intentionally keep that thought or let it go?
- Is this thought serving me?
- Do I really want it?
- Is this thought current or outdated?
- Say goodbye to the thoughts you don’t want.
- Create what you do want.
That’s it. Writing it all down, of course, helps you to work through it all.
Who knows… maybe after you get your thoughts organized, you will be ready to organize that closet you’ve been ignoring.
Happy organizing, my friend!
