Blog-Oliday and the No Diet Diet

I'd like to say A BIG THANK YOU to all my followers
and WELCOME to all my new followers.

I've scheduled this post just to let you know I've decided to take this forthcoming week off
as a blog holiday.

And here's why...
I was reading an article the other day about the No Diet Diet by Professor Ben Fletcher, Dr. Karen Pine & Danny Penman and it made a lot of sense.

The No Diet Diet (Revised/Updated Edition)Like me you probably have a habit of sitting in front of the television or the computer with a cuppa and a biscuit/cookie. However, if as the book suggests, we didn't watch television or sit in front of the computer for an evening or two each week and instead wrote a letter, or went for a walk or sorted that box of papers we've been meaning to deal with for ages, then we have changed the pattern of behaviour that led to being sedentary (and stopped ourselves scoffing loads of caloric yummies) without even thinking about it.

The book apparently (as I have yet to read it) provides a structured, 28-day programme for breaking bad habits and forming better ones

And best of all, unlike other diets, it doesn’t require willpower to make it work.

The concept struck me as brilliant, not just for dieting, but also for stimulating other aspects of one's life such as writing. When we get stuck in a rut, as I have done recently, we become creatively stale. A change in routine can be all we need to re-ignite that pilot light to our muse.

Have you heard of this book? 

BTW If I'm missing any BLOGFESTS do let me know as I really enjoy them.
