My Feel Good Journal – Day 6

I'd rather put myself first than feel drained, resentful and unhappy


Have you been like me and always done for others first, without doing for yourself?  In the past, that has lead me down a very unhappy road.  We are no good to anyone else if we don’t first take care of ourselves.  I call it “filling up my feel good well”.

Today I made it a point to do good things for myself before I ran around doing errands and work stuff.

Here are my 4-G’s for Day 5:

What are “The 4-G’s of Feeling Good”? – find out HERE.

Goin’: I walked with Soc (the dog) for 20 minutes this morning.

This was one of those mornings where I could have made an excuse to skip the walk – but I didn’t.  I knew it was important for filling up my “feel good well” 🙂

Greens:  I had a barely green smoothie after the walk.

I ran out of fresh greens so I used some frozen spinach in my smoothie.  I defrosted it a bit first.  It turned out ok – I’d still rather have the fresh stuff though.

Smoothie ingredients:  The frozen spinach, 1/2 banana, blueberries, 1/2 of a mango, chia seeds, flax seeds, goji berries, maca powder, plant protein powder, almond milk (unsweetened).

Givin’:   I helped a friend.

For myself:  I know I’m busy and I have lots to do so I’m making a point to NOT push myself.  To do one thing at a time and take it easy.  And most of all… to give myself the gift of filling up my “feel good well” before anything else!


I am grateful for getting to share some silly moments with my Mom today.

I am grateful for seeing the tulips starting to bloom in the front yard.

I am grateful for making the choice to do for myself first.

Making “Feeling Good” choices like these all started with doing the “4-G’s”! I’d love it if you joined me in doing the “4-G’s” – grab your free copy of my book that explains it all “Get Back on the Feel Good Train: 4 Simple Strategies for Getting You Back on Track” HERE. and there’s a printable journal sheet too!

I’d love to hear your 4-G’s…. share ’em below…
