Join Arianna Huffington for an in-depth discussion in this video Life tracker: Energy and movement, part of Arianna Huffington's Thrive 02: Learning How to Unplug and Recharge.
- So I just realized that I didn't track this morning. No judgments. How's your tracking going? So remember, if you miss a day, get back on the next day and start over. No judgments. Tracking helps us be mindful of our activities each day, prevents us from going on autopilot. It will help us create the new habits that we are building. So this week focus on tracking your energy level. How does your body feel before and after your walk or stretch break? Notice how it changes the more you do it.
Select three to five daily stressors or pressures in your life. This could be your commute, putting your kids to bed, the flood of emails in your inbox, someone who is rude, or the feeling of always running out of time. Anything that resonates with you. Try to examine the other stress triggers you have so you can assess how much less reactive you are as you bring more mindfulness in your life, how much less irritable and frustrated.
Remember, you may not be in control of what happens during your day, but you are in control of the clicker and of your own reactions to what happens every day.
