Daily emotional check-in for the soul
This daily emotional check-in for the soul is good for adults and children. Coach Katie uses it regularly and offers this guidance to her clients. This check-in sets an intention and allows you to move more mindfully throughout the day. Here are a few grounding questions you can ask yourself or your children.
1. Name your feelings
As you wake up and settle into the morning, name your feelings. Use an emotional vocabulary wheel like this one from Brain Tracks.
2. Identify what is RIGHT
In your daily emotional check-in for the soul, ask yourself what is going well. Rethink the day or week before and recall the good things that happened. Repeat those experiences in your mind, even journal the memories.
3. What are you working on?
We should all be improving something in our lives. Staying stagnant is never good. So whatever needs a little work, acknowledge it and make a plan to change it. You are the boss of your life.
4. Set your daily intention
Getting really mindful of the way you are living your life makes everything better. Setting your goal for the day is another way to consider this. Intentions aren’t always measurable like goals, but they work the same way. It’s a plan on how you will live your day.
5. Check back in with yourself
Consider ending your day by checking back in with yourself. Did you follow your intention? Was the day more mindful and grounded? You can ask yourself and your children these four questions:
- ~What was the best part of your day?
- ~What was the worst part of your day?
- ~Who or what are you grateful for?
- ~Who or what do you want to pray for?
Enjoy the blessings and joy that come from your new habits!
