#MondayMood: Be Present Today

#MondayMood: today I wanted to share a lesson I learned in a recent yoga class 🧘 about setting intentions for the day and the week.

I LOVE the idea of setting a small goal that can really transform your day or week. So today, let’s set an intention to practice being present. 👁️ Even if it’s just during a moment alone or during your interaction with others.

Before starting your day, rushing out the door, or rushing to your desk, I challenge you to take a pause whether it’s for five minutes or thirty. 🤚

Close your eyes for just a moment and listen. 👂Ground yourself by placing both feet on the floor and take a couple of deep breaths before opening your work for the day. Say a prayer of gratitude. 🙏Text a friend or family member and tell them why you love them.📲

Close out your social media apps and feel the energy around you whether it’s good, bad,  chaotic, or peaceful. Smell the air when you get outside this morning. Today, let us practice being in the moment.

It has been a year full of challenges, but if you’re reading this post it shows me that you are still alive, breathing, reading, and thinking, which also tells me you still have the capacity to create a positive thinking space for yourself.

There is still SO much to be grateful for, and sometimes it takes a little extra push to stop and smell the roses.🌹

How do you plan to be present today? ☀️

My Favorite Entrepreneurial Resources: Podcasts, Books & Groups

If you’re an entrepreneur like me, you probably also consider yourself a lifelong learner. Every day a new lesson is learned as we move forward in this journey.

But aside from getting my hands dirty and learning my own lessons along the way, I also love hearing from those who have “been there, done that”, which is why I’m super excited to share the resources I’ve found and LOVED over the past few years.
