When your mind is worried about something, it’s next to impossible to stay open to love, because part of you is already checked out of the present moment.
With so much happening in your daily world, it’s easy to get bogged down by details and forget to take care of your Spirit and own your time and energy.
Here are 3 of my favorite rituals to free your mind and help you reclaim your energy:
1.Start with “Thank you”.
This sounds so simple, but notice how you feel when you say Thank you when you first wake up. Say Thank you when your feet hit the ground after you get out of bed. Say Thank you and take a deep breath. Before checking your Twitter feed, email pings or anything else outside of yourself in those first five minutes. It sets the tone for the rest of your day. If you don’t put yourself first, how do you expect others to? Thank you.
- The Nightly 3
Before you go to bed each night, write down the 3 most important things that you need to address for tomorrow. Nothing else gets added to your schedule until those top 3 are looked at. (That last step is key and you will be tempted to not do it!)
A mentor of mine gave me this exercise for my business and although I don’t always do it (I’m human!) I notice a huge boost in my productivity and energy level when I do. Being unfocused takes way more energy than taking a few minutes to prep before.
- Use the worry box.
I’ve written about the worry box before, but there’s a reason I keep sharing it with you. It really works! Get an empty tissue box, index cards or post-its. On the box, write a prayer that everything that goes in the box, you are giving to Spirit to transmute and deal with. It’s being handled as Olivia Pope would say. Whenever you have something you keep worrying about, write it on the card and drop it in. Say your own version of the prayer, “Thank you Spirit for taking this off my heart and mind. Show me any right actions to take. I free and release these to you. Thank you! And so it is!” BOOM! Done. If you want to worry about the situation again, you have to go into the box and dig out the index card.
