Checking in with Yourself

Checking in with Yourself

Most women say that alone-time is their most coveted, precious time. It is also the perfect opportunity for some essential self-care. We talk a lot about the benefits of mindfulness because it is a simple way to center yourself and fully experience your life. Too often, we are just going through the motions. When we do get an opportunity for solitude, it is a chance to connect with ourselves, build trust with ourselves, and check-in with our goals.
  • Use your alone time to connect with yourself. Instead of defaulting to the Netflix-binge, use some of your time to check in. It can seem awkward to build a relationship with yourself, but it’s incredibly important. If you don’t know where to start, there are tons of guided questionnaires to help you begin. (Pro tip: meditation is always a great opportunity to look within.)
  • Learn to trust your instincts. Ask yourself: if you had no one to confide in for support and guidance, could you rely on your own opinions? It’s totally natural to seek advice from friends and family. But the only person’s opinion that truly matters is your own. Tapping into your intuition is a skill that you can actually practice! 
  • Check in with your goals. Remember when you were in elementary school and you would imagine what your life would be when you grew up? Do you still want to be a unicorn trainer? The point is that your vision for your life is going to change countless times. Are you still on the path that feels right to you? Take a moment to check in with your goals. Personal development never ends. You can always learn a new skill, make a pivot, change the course.
    You may be asking yourself, “How am I supposed to work on this when I have no time for myself?” That, my friend, is the bigger issue. Time alone can be caught moments, planned outings, or part of a regular routine. Learning to carve out time for yourself is a critical part of a self-care routine. It takes practice and patience…but, aren’t you worth it?
