Week 1 - Day 6 - Review and Catch-up


The reason for the catch-up and review day, is to help to keep you on track.  This Boot camp is about creating positive changes to gain mastery over your anxiety.  Like a real boot camp, it can be challenging and you may feel like giving up.   I encourage you to stick with it.  You have the ability in you to do these activities, learn and create the changes that are needed in your life.

If in doubt, just look in a mirror and say to that person in the mirror, with conviction
"I can do this and I will do this!"

Today is the day where you can catch-up on what you may have missed through the week.  Go back over the activities for the week and find any that you have not done or not yet completed.

Spend time today catching up.

The second activities is to just review your progress with your goals.  When we set goals it means you have a way to measure where you have been against where you want to be.  Sometimes you will go forward, other time you may go backwards.  When that happens you will find that as you persist you will move forward.
