Meg’s Vlog: Building Resilience Part 2
Watch the second video of my six-part series where I teach you how to build resilience and face life’s challenges head-on. Did you miss the first video? Catch up here!
Part 2 focuses on identifying your intentions for the day, and how to start your day with a healthy, positive mindset.
One of the strategies I use to bolster my resilience and get my neurons firing is borrowed from Neil Pasricha, author of The Happiness Equation. I do it first thing in the morning because it helps set the tone for the day.
To begin, and just after my eyes flutter open, I focus on my breathing.
As I become centred on my breath, I think of three things:
- Something I am grateful for. As an example, today I am grateful for having my millennial with us for the week.
- Something I am willing to let go. It might be a thought you’ve been tangled up with or an issue from the past.
- What my focus of the day is going to be – a task, challenge, or priority.
When you wake up tomorrow, I want you to pay attention to your breathing and try to focus on those three thoughts. Try these steps and let me know on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram if it’s working for you.
Stay tuned for part three!
