Bringing you the best of mental health and relationship advice on the internet.
Today’s link from the shrink is:
I’ve posted it before, but this is a link that’s worth repeating in this season of setting goals and making resolutions.
The Clean Sweep Program is a checklist of 100 items which, when completed, give you complete personal freedom. Left undone, they are 100 things that will someday bite you in the ass. You are basically taking inventory of four areas of your life: Physical Environment, Well-Being, Money and Relationships so that you can see where you fall short and set goals to square things away.
One warning, though. If you already know that your life is majorly messed up, you may not want to go through the checklist and get an abysmally low score. It may be just too discouraging. In your case, you probably already know what you need to do. Stop using drugs, restore relationships, take care of yourself, get a job. The Clean Sweep Program is best used after you overcome the most serious hurdles and you want to keep on going and not fall into complacency.
Happy New Year!
