I have been having cognitive behavioural therapy, and my homework this week is to check in with myself each morning, and ask myself 2 questions – how am I feeling (on a scale of 1-10) and what do I need.
So – how am I feeling? 7/10 seems about right – I am tired and a bit headache-y, but emotionally I feel OK
What do I need? A fairly gentle day – I’m meeting a friend for coffee and a chat, and then I am coming home for a quiet afternoon.
I am also supposed to be making baby steps towards a healthier lifestyle – one part of this is to eat breakfast each day, and I have succeeded in that today – porridge and brown sugar – yum. I am also supposed to do 10 squats a day, and when I press post on this, I am going to stand up and do them. So that is two victories today – two positive things!! And I remembered them, which is a third.
