Heading into the new week like😌💃🏻
Here are 3 (weirder/unconventional) things I like to do to set myself up for a successful week:
1. Clean my room and do my laundry for a fresh start and clear energy in my space so when I wake up, go to bed, and take breaks throughout the day I'm not surrounded by clutter. It's a great way to prepare myself mentally for the week ahead. When I don't do this, I notice a difference.
2. Review my clients progress/activity, calendar, social plans, schoolwork load, and workouts/meals. This allows me to see the week before it happens and prepare to approach is successfully. I actually imagine it happening before it does so if a negative thought comes up I can combat it now and find excitement and positivity instead. I acknowledge the calls on my calendar already and the open space that will be filled by it. I reach out to people who I connected with or want to see or speak with and make sure to make time for them (this can be family, friends, new people, etc). This also allows me to get excited about finding free time, flexibility, and productive scheduling. I love my calendar and I feel much more prepared when I've seen it before the days begin.
3. Look in the mirror and congratulate myself for the success I've had, impact I've made, and the tenacity I have through struggles, pain, and bumps in the road. I notice a huge difference when I do this versus when I don't. Believe it or not, I am really really really good at being critical of myself. Maybe that's why I'm such a huge advocate of self love ;). It's easy to be critical, I think we all are good at this. But actually embracing ourselves when we are just being extremely critical and sometimes even hurtful, takes guts.
I see a lot of articles and posts about keys to success and I gotta say, there is no one size fits all and we keep reading the same things over and over.
Break the mold; what works for YOU?
These are just 3 unconventional things I love to do that make me feel prepared, empowered, and ready for the week ahead with love in my heart and even more passion in my soul ready to show up for the world and for myself.
Happy #motivationmonday 😉🤗
