Daily Reflection- Motivational Monday

Monday, January 15, 2018

Hey loves! Welcome back! Today is week two of my Motivational Monday series! 

These posts really help me to take a step back and refocus my mind for the week. It is so easy to lose sight of what is really important in life. I challenge everyone to take at least one day a week to reflect on your lives. To remind ourselves of the goals that we have placed and just take some time to breathe! 

In today’s society we place such an importance on being busy. That if we don’t have plans then we aren’t living to the fullest. That if we aren’t out every weekend with friends then our life is dull. Oh how I wish we would stop thinking like this. It is in those times when you are alone, at peace, and one with your thoughts that you can really grow. We need this time as humans to relax, to give ourselves some rest from the stressors of this world. We all need time to just be alone. Whether it is waking up early before work to read a devotion, to spend some time in prayer or to just unwind with our favorite book! We really need to place more of an importance in our mental self care. We are all about spending time on our appearance, getting our nails and hair done, buying a new outfit to make ourselves feel good. But why don’t we spend more time strengthening our minds?

This week I challenge you to spend more time in your thoughts. Let’s all strive to take 5 minutes and reflect on our days. 
I plan to write down everyday something that made me happy and something I want to do better at the next day! Even on the worst days there is always some good. What a great reminder of this. Also it’ll be so nice to look back on months from now! 
A great thing to have that’ll help make this easier for you is a 1- Minute Gratitude Journal. If you haven’t heard of these, they are little journals that have questions for you to answer everyday. It’ll only take a minute, hence the name, and is perfect for those of us who don’t really have a ton of time to be alone with our thoughts. These questions help us to reflect on our day and are the perfect tool for strengthening our minds! 
I have placed a link below so you can buy your own 1-Minute journal!

I hope you all have a fantastic week!
