The Power of Surrender & Release
When things feel out of control, turn inward to seek your spiritual side and tap into God/spiritual guides to help you through. This is a great exercise to have handy:
Getting things down on paper can make all the difference. There is science that says when we take things swirling in our head and physically write them down so we can see them. In doing this we regain clarity, power, and an understanding of what to do next. When you are feeling overwhelmed, get out a sheet of paper and without overthinking write down:
What’s on your heart
What’s on your mind
What’s on your to do list
Cross off what isn’t yours to carry
Prioritize the list
Assign delete, delegate, defer, and do labels to each
Assign dates and take action!
Resources & Rituals to Begin the Day Well
Starting the day in a grateful, positive mindset is important. Recognize that no matter what happened yesterday or what might happen today, you are enough, you are worthy, and you are loved.
Use this practice as an example to find what works for you!
Think or speak right when you wake up, "Thank you for this new day to love and serve and grow."
Think about or journal 3 things you are grateful for.
