Bed time journal Day 1-7; Saturday Feb 7th to Friday Feb 12

Sunday, February 07, 2021

Goals: "Tonight before going to sleep, pick up the pad and paper and make a list of all the things you want to accomplish tomorrow. Jot down whatever is on your mind – work, family, dinner, shopping.

Once you’ve finished the bedtime list of things you need to complete tomorrow, give yourself a bonus mindful moment by thinking back on your day and writing down one thing about which you feel grateful."

I made my list last night as a to do list. I then spent the morning crossing items off. I feel like I really accomplished a lot first thing.

1. Research foot inserts: Done
2. Order groceries: Done
3. Meal prep: Done
4. Read my journal entry: Nope
5. Laundry: Done

Gratitude: I had a great weigh in. It was a beautiful winter day (warm and sunny). I spent time outside.

I debated on if I should write down exercise and chose not to since I always get up and work out first thing. I plan that ahead and print out a calendar. My calendar has the date, day of the week, exercise, and weight. I like looking back through my 4-6 weeks and seeing my weight patterns.

I didn't add it to my to do since the calendar is already done. Perhaps, I will in the future since I do like crossing items off.

I decided to just keep adding on vice new.

    Molliemac made me laugh! I actually crossed off, yesterday, every (small) thing on my list! But, yesterday wasn't a normal day either, since some of my kids came over for the game.

    NecDoo, do share what you find out on shoe inserts--and why you think you may need. I'm getting that bottom of foot/heel pain again, and have been wearing an old pair of phase5 shoe inserts (in my slippers, with all this staying in) that I tried years ago when I was working. But, we have a local store that apparently that is all they sell, and I keep seeing testimonial advertisements multiple times a day, and am tempted....But, I hate getting convinced by advertisements, and spending lots of money on something that does not work. Years ago, I got prescription 'braces' leg wraps with a hard foot that keeps your foot stretched out straight at night. They work, but are horrible to sleep in.

    Molliemac. Perhaps you are making it to hard. I just jotted down some quick things to do. I also keep a list by my computer for things I want to remember to do or order, etc.

    One of your quick lists could be to outline the problem in the morning.

    Work list goes in my outlook calendar. I have a lot of lists. I love lists.

    Oh, it didn't help me get to sleep faster either. I still took about an hour which is my normal time. I'll keep doing it though.

    Glad the bedtime list is working for you. Me? Not the greatest idea in my books as after making my list I lay awake for a very long time figuring out how to tackle each item. Tomorrow I will return to my tried and true method of having my running list beside my computer.
