1. Practice Phone-Fasting
Tune all the digital chatter out of your life for one day per week. I know that doing this may send you into a panic attack, and if so, try half a day. Phone-fasting includes powering down using iPads, computers, video games, and other electronics.
2. Create a Bedtime Ritual
Go to bed at roughly the same time every night, in the same place. Avoid sleeping in different areas of your home, like on the couch or in an armchair. Wind down by lighting an aromatic candle, taking a warm bath, cleansing your face, following with moisturizing your skin, turning off all electronic devices, taking a few minutes for mindfulness, and getting into bed.
3. Schedule Around Your Monthly Cycle
Do you follow your menstrual cycle? Learning to honor your feminine cycle can help promote harmony. Use your cycle as an opportunity to rest, slow down and nourish yourself. In the days leading up start to thin out your schedule. Minimize the number of meetings you take, social outings and go really easy on exercise. Map out your month and plan out the big things- working around your monthly cycle. Slow down on your list of tasks so you can feel rejuvenated on the other side of your cycle and prevent burn-out.
4. Keep a Vision Journal
Splurge on a notebook and a nice pen to record the dreams you summon forth. Write the date, and leave the entry blank before going to bed. Leave the book open with your pen inside, setting your intention to remember your dream.
5. Ask for Help
Remember to ask for help and practice the art of delegation. We feel so uncomfortable asking others to help us, but we need to realize that we can do more and better when we have support.
