Every Sunday morning I spend 15-minutes journaling about the past week and the one ahead. First, I ask myself four questions about the past week:
Why will I remember it?
What did I do well?
What do I want to do differently?
What did I learn?
Then looking ahead, I have a list of areas in my life that I check-in on—kids, my relationship, health, and social. I set two or three intentions for each:
What few activities with the kids will make this week special?
When will Joe and I get some quality time together?
How do I want to fill up my social cup?
When will I workout? What other health habits am I focusing on for the week?
The process knocks me out of autopilot and makes sure that I’m not over-indexing on any one part of my life.
