So we've talked a bit about the supportive habits that you have and then some of the derailing habits that you have. And flipping the page here, I'd like you to right down again. What's your best mindset when you feel strong to choose a habit? When do you feel really strong that you can choose what you want your brain to do? What are the states that you're in? What things support you being focused or feeling resilient or feeling clear about what you want to do? I'm giving you hints in there. Thanks. These are the things that allow you to be your strongest for most of us. When we wake up in the morning we have a lot more frontal lobe strength because our brain has slept overnight hopefully and we have we feel more in control of our thoughts and behaviors because we're well rested. So that is often what feeds a better mindset is having been rested. You can see that this gets circular because that might be the habit you need is to get the rest so that you can have the strength to go get t...
he rest. But what is it that you really want to feel? And you want your brain to learn to hold this mindset, to hold your space of resilience or your space of calm or your strength to deal with what life deals. There are both behavior habits and thought habits. And there's a lot of questions about this in the in the workbook, as you go through this that we use that we derail ourselves with and then there's the thought habits and the behavior habits we have that make us stronger. And so I just want you to become more aware of the interplay of those so that you have more choice. You have more choice in those moments to say, you know, that's one of my thought processes that derails me, and then this is one that actually serves me when I sit around and laugh with friends and put things in perspective that serves me, that helps me be stronger. The next day when my hard drive crash is the fact that I was out the night before with friends laughing and I know that we all care for each other, makes it easier to survive the hard drive crash. So I build a habit of making sure I get that social time and connection that I need. I try not to build a habit of hard drive crashes, although apparently I have, it's not my favorite thing. So what are the kinds of things you'd like your brain to learn?
