58 The Power of the List
Alright, crave bears, time for a concussion update: I have post-concussive syndrome. What does it mean? It means even though I’m three weeks past my concussion, I’m still feeling the symptoms. Turns out it’s not uncommon, and it can last for weeks or months and occasionally even years. So I’ve been taking it super easy and eating a very non-inflammatory diet.
As I’m living with this, I’ve created this list on a sticky note of things that I wanted to do every day to help me stay on track and feel better. Things like taking a shower, drinking my glass of water, and going on nature walks.
All of this has me thinking about the value of creating lists. They can be so helpful – they offer a great reminder of things that we want to do, and they provide that satisfying feeling of checking something off. So this week I’m talking about why I think we should all make and use lists more often to help us tackle our goals.
Also, the Cravings Cleanse is starting soon! This will be my last live Cravings Cleanse, so I really hope you’ll join me. We start on October 14th – next week! I’m so excited.
