It’s so easy to get lost in the mud of life, and forget your own personal intentions, goals and dreams.
It can be that work completely takes over and spills into your own time, your sleep and most of your conversations. I know that I often suffer from this one, not being able to leave work related stuff behind when I go home and allow my head to be filled with things that I can’t do anything about until the next day, anyway.
Maybe you have a family and kids that seem to fill every inch of your life, and not always in the good way.
It can be health issues, a crappy relationship or financial struggles and they can all be serious and difficult to see a way out of, but wherever you are, to find a routine that sets your day up for better focus and stronger intentions, can support you in solving problems, see a way out or just remind you of what you want and who you are.
So take a moment just for you to set the direction of your day and you might be surprised at the momentum a self-care routine can give.
In front of the mirror, look at yourself and say “I look good”, looking at yourself with acceptance and love.
Say “I love me”, including all of you and your body-feel it.
Say“I life my life” and feel gratitude for all of it.
If you don’t succeed in having a strong feeling, that’s fine too. Find something that makes you accept and be ok with yourself.
Then sit for 3-5 minutes visualizing, thinking about, feeling three things you’d like to have be part of you, your day and your life.
Don’t worry about doing it right or if sometimes it feels hard and like you’re not really being fully present. Just keep it up and make it a part of your morning routine of setting your intentions and you will strengthen your focus and your ability to succeed.
