#YearofMindfulness Day 1: Just Do It! (Thanks, Nike!)
Happy New Year! I'm excited and nervous to announce that EquipMe Life Coaching is launching a #YearofMindfulness. "Excited" because I've dabbled in mindfulness for a while, and I'm looking forward to integrating this form of self-care regularly this year. "Nervous" because publishing my journey means sharing my wins as well as my misses. Honestly, I need help to push through the hard times, and the lure of that accountability clinched my decision to chronicle my #YearofMindfulness.
My plan is to practice mindfulness every day. My stretch goal is to practice mindfulness 3x/day: to check in with myself in the morning, in the afternoon, and before I go to sleep. I'll post an update the next day.
Full disclosure: today, I practiced mindfulness only twice (morning and before bed); we were hiking in the afternoon. I need to design a way to prioritize mindfulness when my schedule is different from usual. Win: I practiced mindfulness today! Twice!
My takeaway for Day 1 is Nike's slogan: "Just Do It." This is real life. It's messy. Things usually don't work out the way we hoped. But we have to start somewhere. Will you join me?
