Tip

Here's my "tip for the day"

Reading "What's the Good Word?" every morning is good for you. Commenting can even help control your weight!

I'm reading a book that advocates doing a little bit of writing every morning as you start your day. The author claims quite a lot of practical success with this method. Her reasoning appears very good to me.

Taking a few moments to focus, to meditate and contemplate tends to air the issues that might get buried or suppressed. Buried or suppressed thoughts then may give way to unhealthy habits, habits like overeating or craving sweets or comforting starches. Write them out; pray over what's troubling you. If you've been one who feeds them chocolate or chips and gravy you'll understand.

If food can block disturbing thoughts, perhaps words can block unwholesome foods. That's her premise. You can test it out by reading our Blog every day and then writing a Comment. We're happy to be part of your weight-loss program.

  1. Stephen King defines a writer as someone who gets paid to write.

    A publisher friend of mind defines a writer as someone who writes every day. Regular time. Regular space. Shazaam. You're a writer.

    And now a handy weight-loss tool!

  3. I forget to read every day, then when i find a time, I try to catch up with as many WTGW as possible. i find them an invigorating and sometimes challenging way to start or end the day
