Yesterday, something clicked. I was reflecting and asking myself "What is it that I did three years ago that I am not doing now?" While activity was definitely different, the biggest change is my mindset. I was focused on the positive.
I'm not looking for problems. I'm looking for ways to improve. Instead of hyperfocusing on my mistakes, I want to focus on increasing the amount of success I achieve. Instead of focusing on restricting how much "junk" I can eat, I am going to focus on how many vegetables and clean foods I can eat.
I'm also going to limit myself at the gym to only two activities and an absolute deadline of 3.5 hours or 9:30PM. I want to be in bed by 10PM if possible. 10PM will also be my time to turn my phone off.
What kind of kicked this off was a few things. The biggest one was that I realized that my "anxiety" I've been feeling is actually being over-caffeinated. So, I'm trying to cut back from 5 cups a day (even I'm surprised by that number) down to 1 or less cups a day. I enjoy the taste of coffee, so going decaf may be a solution to consider as well.
