I am an advocate for self-help and homework in therapy, because it is so important we work on ourselves every day to become who we want to be. I often recommend homework and self-help outside of the stated concern, because truly changing involves a broad look at ourselves. I strongly believe goals such as weight loss will be much better achieved and sustained if there is a wholistic approach to self betterment, reading and learning outside of just diet and exercise.
I really like this article from Live Happy with tips on leading a more meaningful life. All of these ideas will help focus on something likely outside of your stated goal or struggle right now. Consider working through this list or adding at least one thing to do as you work toward your goal!
