How do you feel in this moment? Anxious? Calm? You might be surprised by how generally stressed, or not, you feel even when you’re not thinking or doing anything in particular.
Mental State: Where is your mind at? Are you struggling to check-in? Focus on acknowledging your thoughts and then letting them float out of your mind. Mindfulness isn’t about having a blank mind, but about exercising your ability to focus on or let certain feelings or thoughts go.
Physical: How do you feel physically? Are your shoulders tense or your brow furrowed? Recognize what your body is feeling and narrow in on parts that are tight, then relax them during your check-in.
