Positive Intentions Week 5
Where intention goes, energy flows! Positive Intentions is your 8-week plan to boost self-love, spiritual Zen, and energetic output. Check in each week for an uplifting task, act, or exercise (no sweating required) to clear your mind-space, sharpen your inner-focus, and create new rituals for self-betterment.
Focus On What You Can Control
Like traffic and weather, there are things we just can’t control in life. Human nature, the past, other people’s happiness, the list goes on and on. Getting caught up in the things you cannot control is turmoil to your inner-peace and, frankly, a complete waste of energy. The classic mantra “it is what it is” rolls off the tongue so nicely but is easier said than done, right? Let’s change that TODAY! Here’s how to self-reflect.
What’s bugging you? Grab a pen and some paper and make a list of what you can and cannot control. Self-reflection exercises provide a visual to help you prioritize and focus on what you can control and what you need to let go of. By answering these questions, you’ll create a list of self-reflection journal prompts to get your mind moving.
