It's the start of a brand new week, and it's a great time to take five minutes to reflect and set the tone for a productive and fulfilling week ahead. You can use this time to set your intentions and focus on what's most important to you.
What can I celebrate?
Take a moment to acknowledge your achievements, big or small, from the past week. Whether it's completing a project, reaching a personal goal, or simply making it through a tough day, pat yourself on the back.
How am I feeling?
Check in with yourself and honestly look at how you're feeling right now. It's okay to experience a mix of emotions – excitement, anticipation, or even a touch of Monday blues.
What's not working for me?
Identify any areas of your life that may be causing stress or resistance. Is there a recurring pattern or a particular task that's been challenging? Reflecting on what's not working helps us recognise areas where we can make positive changes and seek support if needed.
What's working for me?
Appreciate the things that are going well in your life. It could be a supportive friend, a helpful tool, or even a personal routine that brings you joy and keeps you grounded.
What can I do right now with the resources I have?
Take a moment to assess your current resources – time, skills, and opportunities. Think about what you can do today to make progress towards your goals, even if it's just a small step.
What can I let go of?
Letting go is essential for growth and creating space for new possibilities. Identify any thoughts, habits, or beliefs that no longer serve you and hold you back.
Remember, practising mindfulness and self-reflection not only helps you navigate your day, week and life, but it also nurtures your overall wellbeing.
