8. Pause to check in with yourself every day.

Taking the time to check in with yourself daily can bring focus and awareness to an otherwise dizzying time.

Ask yourself these three questions:

  1. “What is captivating your thoughts right now?”
  2. “What emotions or physical sensations are you experiencing or feeling?”
  3. “What do you want to accomplish today?”

Pairing this practice with an already ingrained part of your routine, like brushing your teeth or making coffee in the morning, will make it easier to stick to.
