RESOURCES, PRACTICE, AND SUPPORT FOR YOUR EAT SANELY JOURNEY
These worksheets aim to help you organize and guide your change efforts. They will
help you strengthen key skills for habit change. This might involve the ability to pay
attention, to tolerate uncomfortable feelings better, or to identify needs, to name a few key
areas. The worksheets allow practical follow-up to your Eat Sanely reading—so that you can
continue on to actually make the needed changes you’ve identified.
For most eectiveness, do the exercises that t your needs often, until the practices
feel like they’re coming more and more automatically—you’re remember and defaulting to
them more and more often, in other words. Copy the pages if you are writing by hand for
multiple uses. In fact, writing by hand vs. using a phone app vs. typing on a computer:
which is best? Any of these methods will plant new ideas and connections better than
practicing in your head, where thoughts tend to it about and change and drop away. In
part, this reinforcement happens because the act of recording involves repetition, and visual
and motor inputs that help cement the message. Writing often wins as the most powerful
mode, but phone apps and typing work well, too. So, in the end, choose whichever mode you
are most likely to nd convenient and to persist with. That’s what will count.
