I'm pleased with the progress I've been making on changing life habits. Giving up things and doing new things is a challenge to me since I'm so used to doing things out of habit. I'm finally looking at changes as being in my best interest especially on an emotional level, not just the intellectual level. I have much less feelings of deprivation, and my new changes are turning into habits. Now they are things I want and need, not just hoped for. I'm also really embracing the concepts of one step built on another, baby steps are progress, and no time limit- only progress. I've decided mistakes are made only to educate me and are only a sidestep, not a change in direction. The more I learn about health the easier it is to make choices.

    Thank you again for dropping by. I absolutely agree with you about the sleeping. I would do the same. Fortunately, using the spare room is working out really well. There's even another bonus that we have very noisy neighbors and the spare room is much further away from them. Unfortunately DH gets to hear all their racket for a good part of the night. Another complaint to the landlord appears to be in my future. Last week I yelled "Shut up" at them at 2 am and it did reduce some of their noise.

    Hoping you have a relaxing weekend!

    I define comfort as self-acceptance. When we finally learn that self-care begins & ends w/ourselves, we no longer demand sustenance & happiness from others. Jennifer Louden
