Be Aware of Your Money and Eating Habits

I had an appointment with a health counselor yesterday.  She gave me an assignment to write down everything I eat.  This exercise helps us become accountable and also aware of what we put in our mouth.  Sometimes we eat for emotional reasons and getting in touch with those feelings helps us uncover our unmet emotional needs.  Its the same with money.  Our habits around money are often unconscious and we use money to meet emotional needs.  Try this:  Write down everything you spend everyday for a week, also jot down how you felt about it: Did you feel proud, happy, stressed, fear.  Get in touch with the unconscious feelings you have around money.   Its the first step to developing a positive relationship with money and growing your Money Chi.
