Friend, I am right there with you! Desperately seeking some good content that has nothing to do with COVID. Let’s talk about YOU!
This is a great time to evaluate what you are doing to improve your SELF. You have time (that you didn’t before) to do some self-reflection and increase your overall self-awareness. Here are a couple of things you can be doing over the next few weeks:
1. Take a Quiz. Not that Facebook quiz about what kind of fruit you would be, rather a behavior quiz that can help you learn more about yourself.
2. Write down your goals. The greatest way to reconnect with who you are and what you really want is to write down your goals. Not just once though, write them every day. Rachel Hollis is a popular inspirational speaker with a great process for writing down your goals. She says to imagine the best version of yourself in 10 years – write it down (this one you only write down once). Then, write down 10 dreams that would need to come true in order for you to be that person you want to be in 10 years. Write these 10 goals down everyday, changing them only when one is accomplished. And then, choose one that you are going to work on TODAY! Doing this will give you a clear focus for the day and keep your goals fresh in your mind as you move through life and make decisions.

3. Meditate. Be still. Meditation is an amazing way to clear your mind. Start with 5 minutes – set a timer on your phone. Silence all devices. Sit comfortably in a quiet place where you can be alone. Close your eyes. Focus on your regular breath. Clear your mind. As thoughts enter just let them pass by without engaging with them. You will notice your other senses, like hearing amplify. Complete your 5 minutes. Once you can meditate for 5 minutes without heavy thought distraction or monkey brain, up your time. You may see a difference in how your day continues on and the stress you feel. For more information on meditation, watch this video from the Wholistic Revolution: https://youtu.be/6RYrcdvIUCs
