Daily SelfCare Prompts

Weekly Wellness Guide [Week One]

Reading Time: 4 minutes

New Year, now what? 

This year resolutions may fall flat; after all, who knows what will come next. However, we can continue to focus on being our best selves.  But how can we become more specific in our plans and, therefore, in our actions toward self-betterment?  This quest is part of our weekly journey here at Maven 101.  Besides outlining your values to define your goals, we will continue our holistic approach to self-development day by day, week by week, month by month, which will turn into your routine to become a maven of self.  Below is week one in our Weekly Wellness Guide featuring daily actionable and accountable tactics to enhance your life essence.  

How To

Each week we highlight a daily call to action.  These self-care prompts are followed by supporting journal prompts designed to capture your enlightenment and insightfulness as you complete each task.  Then, sign up, and join our monthly check-ins where we share our learnings and Geneén shares some activities for the following month.

Mindful Monday

We start the week by clearing our minds to welcome our mental and physical rebirth. We bury what was to reveal what is and manifest what will be.

Activity

Start the day with the five-finger breathing method.

Open the palm of one hand; wide.

Now, starting from your pinky-use the pointer finger from your other hand to trace each finger.  

Inhale as you trace up and exhale as you trace down the side of each finger.  

Journal Entry

Once you complete your breathing meditation, WRITE.  Starting with your clear mind, allow your writing to guide your thoughts.  Be judgment-free.  There are no expectations, no agenda; this is a moment to release, expound and expand as your mind connects with your being through the action of writing. 

Tuneful Tuesday

Music heals, music reflects, music evokes, music is power.
