I try to help my neighbors when ever I can - shoveling snow, raking up leaves, sweeping up the street in front of our homes, etc. Sometimes they reciprocate which is a lovely surprise!

I try and look at views from others perspective, I try to be more understanding and not so quick to judge or give my reaction. It is a learning curve but I have been practicing this for about 2 years.

A positive habit that I have developed over these past years of changing my way of eating is to always stop and do a serious consultation with myself to determine not just if I want or need to eat, but also what it is that I really want.

While there are some times when I am not actually hungry but have the munchies, and really want some crackers and cheese or some cereal or popcorn to crunch, I have found that it is more common to realize that I truly am hungry but not necessarily for the snack that I had planned. It turns out that I often want something more filling / "healthy" / balanced than planned, and so may end up having a plate full of leftover roasted veggies with sliced meats instead of the planned yogurt with fruit - or I'll heat up a serving of a stew or stirfry that I had frozen as a future meal, and have that instead of a smaller planned snack.

This has become so natural to me that I do it no matter where I'm at --- and have found that my body is pretty trustworthy in wanting healthy options that I really enjoy more often than not ;)

Sir Terry Pratchett: "Science is not about building a body of known 'facts'. It is a method for asking awkward questions and subjecting them to a reality-check, thus avoiding the human tendency to believe whatever makes us feel good."

"The Inuit Paradox" ( discovermagazine.com/2004/oct/inuit-
paradox
): "...there are no essential foods—only essential nutrients. And humans can get those nutrients from diverse and eye-opening sources. "

one positive habit I've always had was "being active". When I was obese, my problem wasn't being inactive. my problem was eating too much.

one positive habit I created was learning to eat 6-9 servings of fresh fruit and veggies each and every day.

I have been thinking so much about routine and HABITS. It seems so easy to develop bad or unhealthy habits. I am determined to change this. I asked myself, what is one good, POSITIVE habit I have already? I suppose for me, I would say I always get a very healthy 7-8 hours of sleep each night. What is one of your good habits?
