So maybe you’re good at setting goals and creating action plans to accomplish those goals, but how good are you at including healthy, positive rewards for finishing the tasks that lead to accomplishing your goals? Way too often, we turn to alcohol, food or other unhealthy means of pleasure as our reward or pain reliever. When you are planning your activities for the day, also plan your rewards and positive, happy activities as well.
I invite you to use the log sheet that I use to plan out my drinking goals and limits, as well as potential triggers and POSITIVE ACTIVITIES for the day. Use it for planning your moderate drinking or alcohol-free days as well. It is also helpful to use as a way to track planned versus actual behavior in order to learn from your patterns and make conscious changes.
