Be Grateful

Let’s practice being grateful this week! Write down at least 3 things you are grateful for each day. Some days this may be super easy to list 10 things. Some days your life may be in the pit and all you may come up with is being grateful for a bed. Practicing gratefullness helps shift your mind to positivity and hope. This can help reduce depression and anxiety. This can give you the strength and courage to fight bad days. This can increase your faith and fight doubts and lies you’ve been believing. Share with a friend or partner each day for extra accountability and encouragement!

How are you being?

How are you being?
This is a question I often ask myself and my boyfriend through the week as a check in. (I can’t take credit, I learned it from my best friend’s wonderful mom.)
But really, how are you being?

We run around from one thing to the next, rarely sitting in the present. Our mind is overstimulated and often exhausted. We don’t know how we’re feeling or we don’t want to stop long enough to realize we are feeling shitty. It’s time to check in with yourself and be.
This week's challenge is to be mindful. Take at least 5-10 minutes everyday this week to focus on being mindful. This might look like;
Sitting down to eat undistracted and actually focus on the taste and smell of your food and how many times you chew.
Grab a pen and paper first thing when you wake up (not your phone) and jot down how you slept and how you’re feeling.
Do the same before bed and reflect on how you felt about the day. Recall something you felt, not just what you did.
Go on a walk and pay attention to the sounds and smells and colors you see along the way.
Take 5-15 minutes to follow a guided meditation or breath work and connect with you.
Take 5-15 minutes to stretch and do mobility and really recognize how your body is feeling.
There are many other ways you can be mindful, but these are some ideas to help you start!
