1. LOVE YOURSELF.
Like, really affirm this while you’re in the shower. Give yourself a huge, bear hug. Ahh. Doesn’t it feel great to show your bod some love?
2. IMAGINE IT. PLAY IT OUT.
A-ha! So we figured out a way to daydream without getting in trouble. In fact, daydreaming positively about how an anticipated event or project can turn out to be a great foundation for getting it done especially because you’ve already pictured hard work put in and the reward of those fruits of labor.
3. CHOOSE A MANTRA AND STICK TO IT.
Whether it’s a reminder of how awesome things are in your life or simple words giving you a signal to be present, this is a super useful way to ingrain something powerful each day and repeating something that will carry you through the next 24 hours. Start saying it as you condition your ends.
4. TAKE YOUR PICK OF WORDS FOR WHAT TODAY REPRESENTS.
Whether you’re choosing love, strength, inspiration or passion, power, presence, try a group of three core words that are meaningful to you to guide the rest of your time today. When you’re in doubt, just repeat your three words. Third time’s the charm.
5. QUOTE YOUR INSPIRATION
While you’re rinsing your hair (in cold water, please!) and making sure all product has been washed out, take a trip through your brain archives of women in history you’ve admired, artists, scientists, writers, and so on who have a worthwhile quote that’s always stuck with you. Use this quote as a source of inspiration to draw from and be emboldened by. It’s a stepping stone to your journey ahead. Air dry your hair if you can and enjoy your quote, turn it over in your head and examine it, use it to help you through hard times. Make each day a rare one. Make every day count.
