This week, my goal is to check in with myself more. I often beat myself up for not hearing my emotions, but I don’t really make great efforts to stop and hear them. I can notice when I am eating my emotions, or when I am projecting them. By then it’s a bit too late. I don’t want to continue to play catch up with myself.
To create more space to hear my emotions this week I’ll focus on:
1. Remaining fully grounded and present in my body. When I can tangibly feel my emotions I often respond quickly and effectively.
2. Creating moments of quiet check in. This is a good opportunity to introduce the boys to meditation. Even just taking a few deep breaths can help connect us to ourselves.
3. Take a moment before beginning to eat to check in. I often whiz through meal times when they are a great opportunity to fully engage the body <3
4. Go to the bathroom more and breathe deeply while I’m in there 🙂
Let’s see what happens next.
