Start by keeping a lot of little promises to yourself every day. Start with Monday thru Friday but then expand it to the weekends as soon as you've mastered the stuff you want to do every single day.
Notice what you've stopped doing that usually starts a virtuous cycle in your day. I'd been feeling super stuck and overwhelmed lately with all the projects and things I want to get done so then I'd get analysis paralysis and literally not do anything at all! 😬
Well, the good news is that I started a tiny accountability group through my Instagram community that's been helping me do the minimum I need to take care of myself and progress my goals forward even when I don't feel like getting much done.
The little acts of self care I've been incorporating are:
meditate - I've been practicing this super easy one that only takes about 5 minutes, message me if you want it! no app required
journal - write what I remember of my dreams in my dream journal and/or 3 things I'm grateful for, as a minimum... but on good days I spend quite a bit of time reflecting on where I want to go and whats holding me back... spoiler alert, it's me holding me back 😅 via limiting beliefs or imposter syndrome
read 10 pages of a book that's been on my nightstand
STOP eating after 9pm
The group is only on its second week so I'll keep y'all posted on further progress. Everyone else involved is also feeling a lot more productive and accomplished too! We've grown from two people to five so we moved the group chat to instagram to allow for international folks to join as well. Other people are focusing on meditating, spending time with their kids every morning, working out, studying and staying off social media after 9pm.
Let me know if you'd like to join us. I'm not in it as a life coach, just as a normal person trying to propel myself forward when the motivation is not there since we all cheer each other on. Just the thought of having to report that I ate after 9pm last night kept me from doing it!
OKAY now for the cosmic energy update to help us plan for the next week or so! Mark your calendars because it's PACKED for the next eight days.
