We all know how life can sometimes feel so hectic and all-consuming. Building in a few moments a day or each week to create a personal ritual can increase your emotional intelligence, and help you attune to your own personal needs which supports your individual growth. Whether it’s a routine of daily journaling, meditation, prayer, or responding to a couple of reflection prompts—personal rituals can help you to center yourself, tap into that inner peace, reflect on how you are showing up, and/or offer space for personal healing. This supports your own mental health and personal wellness and can illuminate growth areas for yourself.
Here are a few questions you could build into your own personal ritual.
What emotions are most salient for me today and why?
How can I become more centered in my own values and ways of being?
In what ways can I show up more authentically and rooted in my values?
What is preventing me from being fully present at this moment? How can I honor where I am?
