7-Day Challenge – Daily Self Check-In – Day 3

Today is day 3 of the “7-Day Daily Self Check-In Challenge.” I’m doing this every day this week to help you remember to check in with yourself. A little self-inquiry reminder. So right now, I want you to stop whatever you’re doing and take a few deep breaths. Now ask yourself, how do I feel right now? Am I feeling any physical pain? Am I tense, tight? What about my emotions and feelings? Do I feel calm & collected, scattered, sad, anxious? What can I do right now to take care of myself? ⁠

⁠My mindfulness tip for today is to move your body. Move any physical or emotional stress, anxiety & tension out of your body via any type of movement that resonates with you. Movement is incredibly healing and we hold a lot of stress & tension in our bodies. We also hold a lot of emotional pain in our bodies as well. If you can’t do this exercise right now save this post for later and give it a try. 

That’s it for today, I’ll see you tomorrow, have a good day!

For the entire month of May I am offering new clients the opportunity to pay what you can for virtual coaching sessions in meditation, mindfulness, breathwork & yoga. Now more than ever we need to make sure we’re taking care of ourselves both physically & mentally. I’d love to help you through this incredibly hard time. You can sign up for your FREE consultation below. Be well & take care of each other ❤️

Focus on what you CAN control vs. what you CAN’T!

What’s 1 thing you can control right now? ⁠⠀
⁠⠀
I remember sitting in therapy, a long time ago, discussing a difficult person in my life. My therapist said, “you have 2 options, you can walk away, or YOU have to change.” I wanted to tear his entire office to shreds! Why should I change? They were the shitty one! They caused me pain! WHY SHOULD I HAVE TO CHANGE?⁠⠀
⁠⠀
I get it now! I had to change because there is only 1 thing we have control over, OURSELVES! We have control over what we do, how we react & whether we take steps forward or remain stuck in old patterns.⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Currently, our planet & everyone on it is being challenged. Lives & jobs are being lost, the world as we knew it is gone. Things WILL get better, but they’ll look different. We have little control over what’s going on, so I want to talk about what you do have control over. ⁠⠀
⁠⠀
Let’s shift our focus, dialogue & conversation from what we can’t control to what we can. The story we tell ourselves is powerful, but it’s not always true, let’s change this by focusing on what we CAN control:⁠⠀
⁠⠀
⚪️Breath – come back to your breath anytime you feel like your world is spiraling – breathwork can help you feel more grounded, centered & less stressed⁠⠀
⚪️The food we power our bodies with ⁠⠀
⚪️Choosing to exercise so our bodies can be strong & flexible ⁠⠀
⚪️The people we allow in our lives⁠⠀
⚪️Our environment – you’ve heard people say, you are what you eat, same applies for the environment you choose to subject yourself to⁠⠀
⚪️Carbon footprint⁠⠀
⚪️Mental health – seek professional help if you need it, talk to a friend/family member, meditate, journal, practice mindfulness techniques. Your brain is a muscle, it needs exercise too⁠⠀
⚪️Taking care of yourself – it’s the most important relationship you have. If the relationship you have with yourself is strong chances are the rest of your relationships will follow suit⁠⠀
⚪️How you react to people & things around you⁠⠀
⚪️How you act on your feelings⁠⠀
⚪️Gratitude – Focus on what you have vs. what you don’t⁠⠀
⚪️When to walk away⁠⠀
⚪️Self-talk & inner dialogue⁠⠀
⁠⠀
You have more power than you know. Focus on what you CAN control vs. what you can’t ❤️
