Why You Should Replace Your To-Do List With A Delight List

Welcome to the 2020 launch of the 8 Days A Week podcast! Today, Adam is chatting with Lindsay, who is not only a nurse practitioner, but also a dear friend. Their friendship was born out of a shared workout at the Duke football field. Tune in to the episode to hear how Lindsay masters her movement.

Movement Creates…

  • “…control of everything else in my life. Movement is the driving factor for me; if that doesn’t happen, nothing else does to the ability I believe I am capable of.”
  • Four words Lindsay sees as connected: movement, diet, sleep, thoughts. If one thing is off on any given day, everything else is derailed. The goal: achieving grace and control.

Practical Tools

  • Lindsay is passionate about keeping herself accountable, particularly through making lists and taping them around her home.
  • “If I need more motivation and reminders of the things that center and ground me, then there’s stuff taped all over the place.”
  • Think “what fills my tank?” and own it so that you can be the best you.

Grace + Control; Joy + Delight

  • “If I’m taking care of myself… I have grace in the way I respond to things that may be out of my control.”
  • Lindsay started to write ‘delight’ lists. The requirements: it has to stop you in your moment and bring you joy. She shares her current ‘delight’ list on the episode.

Moving Through Health Challenges

  • Lindsay opens up about her experience healing physically and emotionally from cervical cancer and acknowledges the importance of staying on top of your health.
  • “Pay attention to your spirit, your emotions, and your physical health. Don’t think that you can heal completely if you don’t address all of them.”
