Wakes up in the early hours of the morning. Stuff our face with breakfast and fly out the house before we are late for work/university .
Sounds like your morning?
24 hours is a lot of time during the day and each minute is consumed with doing various things. The only time we get to rest is when we are having lunch and even then, our mind is racing with millions of thoughts. Don’t even get me started on the evening routine of returning from university/work ; having to cook,clean and do extra work.
We tend to prioritise work over are self care but, we never prioritise having time for ourselves. Checking in with ourselves and seeing how we feel at that particular moment. Sometimes we need time to see how we are and how we are feeling, you might find some unconscious emotions arising.
This has been very crucial in my routine as it allows me to understand why I feel a particular emotion in the moment. Doing a self check throughout the day also breaks up your mind from focusing on events happening around you.
A little ritual I do at night is doing a self check-in just before I go to sleep, I find it very cathartic. The release of all my thoughts, emotions and events that have happen throughout the day, just lay to rest and I’m ready to start a clean, neutral emotion in the morning.
If you are more of a writer why not journal your feelings down at a time where no-one can disturb you or perhaps creatively draw your check ins?
It’s time for you to check in with yourself!-How are you feeling?
