This has been on my mind for awhile. I see all of these amazing girls on social media killing it and the one thing they all have in common is they work on themselves each and everyday! They sit down with their morning coffee and journal, reflect, write down goals, and work towards becoming their best self.
This year has been anything but a walk in the park lol! So I sat down and ordered a few personal development books to help me work towards my own best self! I can say with 100% confidence that since adding some personal development into my morning and evening routines that I have felt better about myself and future, I’m sleeping better, and I’m not AS stressed about the unknown (anyone else a type 1 enneagram who needs a plan in life or they feel like they’ll go crazy?!).
Here is what I do:
Mornings// I start with my “5 minute journal”. I sit down in bed or at my desk and write down what I am grateful for, things I hope to happen that day, and a daily affirmation. Next, I open my “100 days to brave” book and read the page for the day. Then I reflect on the task given- some days its as easy as telling someone what I’ve read or to journal about the topic. Either way, it gets me thinking about God and how I CAN be my bravest self.
Evenings// I again sit down in bed with my “5 minute journal” and write down all the good things that happened that day and something I wished could have gone differently. Some days I know a specific event/ conversation that I wished would have gone different while some days I simply write that it was a GOOD day and I wouldn’t change a thing!
I just recently started adding in the “Feel your best” wellness workbook to my routine. This workbook is full of advice, encouragement, and things to do that’ll help you feel your best and have some fun at the same time! I am truly enjoying this one because it really makes me think about my goals in life, what makes me happy, and how to find balance in my crazy life.
So whether you’re a personal development expert or just starting out, today is your day to start working on you! The first step is starting and there is no better time than now. It’s the best gift you can give yourself! Give it a try, friend!!
