✨ How do you want to feel?
✨ What do you want to focus on?
✨ What deserves your love and attention?
✨ What can you do to feel your best?
Create an intention to guide your Mindset Reset Challenge. It’s completely personal and all yours to design, but if you need a couple helpful hints, here’s some examples:
✨ This month, I’m going to focus on daily joys.
✨ This month, I’m grateful for my health, and I support it daily by taking good care of myself.
✨ This month, I’m focusing on moving my body, centering my attention, and feeling good.
✨ This month, my priority is my own wellbeing, since I know when my energy is good, I can share that good energy with others.
✨ This month, I’m going to be gentle with myself, take rest, and give myself space to be as I am.
? An affirmation is a supportive statement of what you mean to be, do, or have.
? Just like repetitive exercises help strengthen muscles, affirmations are like exercises for your mindset. Positive mental repetitions can reprogram thinking patterns so over time, we begin to think – and act – differently.
? Choose an affirmation to read every morning this month.
? Research has shown by focusing on your strengths for just a few minutes before a big meeting at work can improve confidence, performance and success, so imagine what daily repetition can do for your overall outlook! Here are some of our favorites:
✨ It’s easy for me to relax into what is.
✨ It’s easy for me to trust that everything is always working out for me.
✨ I can relax when I know that this moment is one dot in the timeline of my life.
✨ I am strong, powerful, and confident.
✨ I am healthy, wealthy, and abundant in every way.
✨ I support myself by choosing what I focus on, and lean into a positive state of mind.
? One of our favorite things about being human is the natural desire to create and share. Each of us has a creative spark, an energy that wants to express.
? Today, the invitation is to get creative: draw, paint, color, write, dance, sing, bake—whatever inspires you.

?♂️ Connecting with a loved one helps THEM (and you too). Benefits of social connection include lower rates of anxiety and depression, higher self-esteem, greater empathy, and on and on and on.
? Writing keeps your brain in tip-top shape, helps sort through feelings, centers your attention, and can be a great energy release!
? But just sitting with a blank page isn’t always FUN… so we’ve got what you need: journal prompts that focus your mindset and help you feel fab.
