On this beautiful spring day, I wanted to share a few thoughts on how to stay positive and grounded. As a kinesiologist, I’m always trying to ensure my clients take care of not only their physical health, but their mental health too. I think it’s important to remember that everyone we meet is fighting their own daily battles…you never know what someone is dealing with in their life! And everyone handles struggles differently. We need more kindness towards each other.
People often ask me tips on staying positive, so here are some of my favourite ways!
#1. Journal things that are on your mind
Journaling daily has been shown to help maintain a healthy mindset! Before you start your day, write down what you’re currently working on, what you’re excited about, what you’re grateful for, and what you need to get done. Getting your thoughts out of your head and visually seeing them on paper will help you stay organized and start the day fresh!
#2. Review your goals
It is good practice to review your goals daily so that you can prioritize what you need to do, and motivate yourself to do what’s most important!
#3. Time-block your schedule
Planning out your day the night before saves you much needed time and energy. Schedule tasks in time blocks so that you know what to do and when it needs to get done!
#4. Mindset check-in
It’s one thing to start the day with a positive mindset, feeling happy and ready to conquer the day, but it’s also important to check in with yourself mentally throughout the day as well! Take a few moments during your day to reflect and realize how you’re feeling. This practice helps to remain present and stay focused.
I love meditation! It’s so important to help increase your self-awareness and patience throughout the day. I like to start my mornings with a simple meditation, even if it’s just 5 minutes!
