Prompted questions for continual check in:
How do I feel in my body today?
What area of my body needs my attention today?
Where is my body holding emotional discomfort or pain at the moment?
How is my relationship with my body currently affecting my relationship/s with others?
Where can I be more vocal about my experiences with my body, for the betterment of myself and those around me?
What do I need less of this week, to support a balanced relationship with my physical and emotional body?
What do I need more of this week, to support a balanced relationship with my physical and emotional body?
Simple tasks & actionable steps - Tools to help you check in with your body and yourself:
When you wake up. Connect with you body through the modality of stretching. You don’t have to physically exert yourself to be connected to your physical body. Physical movement does not equal punishment. Gently stretch your arms over head. Roll your knee across your body to stretch out your back. Breathe deeply as you do this. Then begin your day.
Lay on the floor and place your hands on your diaphragm. Close your eyes and mindfully breath in and out. Connect with your body. Thank it. With each exhale, let go of a limiting belief or negative thought pattern. Repeat to yourself ‘thank you, you’re doing enough. I am enough.’
Call a friend and go for a walk together. If a friend isn’t available, pick a podcast and walk solo for the duration of the podcast. After your walk. Sit with the experience. How do you feel in your body? In your mind? Identify the differences in your physical and emotional body before and after the walk.
During the week, can you pick one form of physical movement / activity that isn’t familiar to you and give it a try - i.e. sub out yoga for boxing ;sub out spin class for swimming.
If you haven’t done so already, Identify and check in with an accountability partner. Create a space for each other to talk about what it is that you’re currently dealing with or wanting to work on/through. Vocalising your experiences can help you feel like you’re carrying far less of a burden. Know you are not alone. If you would like assistance with identifying an accountability partner, reach out to us and we can help: firstname.lastname@example.org.
