The further I’ve gotten along my journey, the more that I’ve realized that your mind is both central and essential to becoming the best version of yourself, or living your best life. The way you perceive things can even shape your reality, shift your response, and most importantly preserve your energy. However, adversely, when these things are not in effect, it can warp your lens, alter your judgement, and suck your energy.

Since I am utilizing this series to check in with myself, while encouraging you all to do the same, I will be presenting you all with five areas of a mental check-in.

Please feel free to utilize the below to check-in with your mind as well, and if you have any tips to share, please send them my way!
