I find that it is important every day to review the day before and write down everything I ate, what I did well and what I didn’t do well. In order to have healthy self worth, having self awareness is very important. I log everything I’ve eaten the day before to make sure I’m eating lots of fresh fruits and vegetables and that I’m staying away from dangerous processed foods and sugar. Upon reviewing my day I know if I need to make an amends to anyone because having self worth means you’re accountable for your words and actions. I also see where I can do better the next day as well as congratulate myself for things I have done well.
I encourage everyone in the comments section to write down their daily temperature.

U – Uncover Feelings (what was the predominant feeling you had yesterday? And what could you do better?)
I was super grateful yesterday because it was just nine years ago I was married to a questionably gay dude and sleeping in my car. I’ve come a long way and I’m grateful for that. I pressured my husband into getting me flowers. On the one hand it’s good I asked for what I wanted on the other hand I was way too aggressive.
Y- Yahoo (what was the highlight of my day yesterday)
The highlight was turning 9 years clean and sober.
G- Gratitude (List 3 things you are grateful for)
