A client recently mentioned that she starts each day with this question:
How do I want to treat myself today?
I have been asking myself a variation of this question each morning, that was suggested to me be a colleague:
How do I want to feel at the end of the day?
And here are a few other great options to consider as you start your day:
Who do I need to BE today?
What is most important for me today?
How can I slow down today?
How will I acknowledge myself for [ fill in the blank ]?
Starting the morning with a good question like one of these sets you up for a day of intention. Rather than simply drifting through the hours, you will have more focus.
Why not pick one that feels appealing and ask it of yourself each morning this week?
You may want to switch around and see which question works best for you, or set a rotation of questions to use during the week.
And at the end of your day, make a note about how the question had an impact. You are likely to experience important shifts as you bring more focus into your daily life.
Email me, or leave a comment with other good questions you’ve used at the start of your day, and to share the impact of this practice after you’ve tried it.
Just as my client told me about the way her question has been a game-changer, we can all learn from one another and inspire each other when we share great ideas.
