It has been one year since starting The Healthy Nurse Project.
You know how the news channels do an end of year review; people that died, bad news, good news. I’m going to review all my thoughts that died this past year as a result of my reading, thinking, and learning. Next, I’ll list the thoughts I wish had died but probably won’t die till I die. Finally, there are the new thoughts I want to keep that make my living better.
Thoughts that died:
- The government knows about nutrition
- Animal fat is bad
- I have to eat breakfast
- Skipping meals is bad for me
- It’s hard to eat healthy
- My memory is accurate
Thoughts persisting in my head that I wish would die:
- Fasting is hard
- I can eat whatever I want
- I have earned a food reward
- I can’t do this
- I’ll start over tomorrow
- These potato chips are the healthy version
- Food keeps me from being bored
Thoughts valuable to me I want to keep thinking:
- My perspective is real to me and no one else
- Food is my medicine
- Eating healthy is my lifestyle
- Animals, nature, and people are the best anti-depressants
Do your own end of year review. I was surprised at the consistent thoughts that are inside my head, both good and bad. I will work on the helpful ones this coming year. Happy 2020 to all!
