  17. Home Practice: Commitment Cards It is easier to let ourselves

    down than to let others down. 1. Write down the same goal on 5 pieces of card. E.g. I will walk 5000 steps by xx/xx/xxxx. 2. Think of 5 people you trust and respect and wouldn’t want to let down. 3. Tell each person your goal, give them a card and ask them to check how you’re getting on. 4. On the date of your goal each person needs to contact you to see how you did. Photos by Kelly Sikkema
