I had already been thinking about abandoning my latest meal tracking/diet app when I came across this very sage advice from @thelovelandfoundation. I am ready to leave behind all my overthinking on how I eat. And chirpy reminders to log and report what I've eaten just fuels that fire. It's a hard soundtrack to dismiss, the "How could you?" soundtrack after enjoying something really delicious that feels un-allowed.
What is a soundtrack? That's what I am learning about right now. I am currently reading preview copy of a book by Jon Acuff on overthinking, called Soundtracks. Soundtracks are thoughts you tell yourself over and over - repetitive overthinking if you will. Jon says overthinking is "one of the most expensive things in the world because it wastes time, creativity, and productivity. It's an epidemic of inaction, a tsunami of stuckness..." I couldn't agree more and can't wait to share more with you! It's due out April 6th.
