Let’s face it, 24 hours can seem long, or it can go by as fast as Usain Bolt running the 100-meter dash. One thing is for sure, the same 24 hour period can be unpredictable. It’s not a good feeling to feel like a mental or emotional mush at the end of the day.
Here are 2 tips to help make sure you end the day feeling accomplished, refreshed, and in a great mood!
Start with an intent word of the day. A couple of examples would be:
These are just some examples. Make sure it is something pertaining to you and your needs. When you set an intent word, it is a constant reminder of what your intention is for the day. Your intent word acts as your gravity pulling you back to center every time you feel yourself slipping. Oh – don’t forget to write it down where you can see it multiple times throughout the day!
Commit to achieving 1 or 2 extra goals for the day. We often find that our clients or program participants struggle from the monotony of their daily routine. On top of that, as the day comes to an end they realize they had not done anything for themselves or accomplished anything outside of their normal routine. This leaves them feeling the effects of the lack of progress and self-care. We have them fix this by setting a daily goal or 2, such as exercise for 10-15 minutes, meditate for 5 minutes, start cleaning out that closet you dread, or start working on a small project. Make it something meaningful to you. The key is to set a time limit and time you are going to do it!
Here is a secret, sometimes it’s not that you can’t. It’s your unawareness of how YOU operate best. If you need help in finding how you operate best. We encourage you to take the DISC assessment!
