DAY 3: notes and summary

1. First things first! Set a timer for 20 minutes, and give your chosen creative project your full attention. 

2. Complete the Martha Beck "bag, barter, or better" survey!  

  • Make a list of everything you plan to do today.
  • Read that list over slowly, noting how each item makes you feel in your body. 
  • For those items that create unpleasant body sensations, choose whether you'll bag, barter, or better it.

3. Bonus step: share the results of your self-inquiry with your accountability buddy!
