Do you ever find yourself putting so much action into your life that spirals out of control and eventually hit a wall mentally?
Perhaps you start to feel burnt out, or you start to question the action put forth because you feel like you’ve been on cruise control. Putting in the work is absolutely crucial for life, but something that may be even slightly more important is ensuring that your mental state is nourished and taken care of each day.
Creating a daily mindset ritual of some sort is more essential than I can even express in words because not having one can cause you to constantly have to do a mindset reset, which is what I’m going to discuss in detail. While mindset resets serve a great purpose; they are something that we don’t want to have to amount to quite often because we shouldn’t wait until things crumble to start taking care of ourselves.
However, being that we as women and mothers have a thousand things on our plate it may be helpful to understand what a mindset reset is and how to know when you need one.
A mindset reset is a combination of different tools and exercises that can be used to “start over” mentally. They can be done whenever you feel as though you’ve hit the wall and nothing you are doing is working. Mindset resets are great for taking time to look introspectively at your life to discover what’s not working from a clear mind.
The arsenal of tools and resources you use to refresh your mind is totally up to you and should consist of things that make you feel good deep down. It is important to listen to your intuition and let it guide you to what those things are instead of simply doing things you think you “should” do.
MINDSET RESET IDEAS
EFT or Tapping - According to The Tapping Solution, “Tapping provides relief from chronic pain, emotional problems, disorders, addictions, phobias and more.” It is surprising how effective this simple exercise can be. You can find free videos on YouTube. My personal favorite is Brad Yates because he has quick versions of his normal tapping videos and we all know we could maximize our time as women and mothers.
Light Exercise - Taking long walks with your little one can serve as a great way to clear your head when doing all the things finally catches up. It can be a wonderful time to disconnect, listen to an inspirational book and get back to basics.
High Vibe Music Playlist - Listening to music that gets me back into a higher vibration always helps. I have created several playlists on YouTube that allow me to get back in the swing of things whenever I am feeling down.
Celebration Exercise - Something we don’t do enough of as women and mothers is celebrate our small accomplishments. I recently purchased a journal and set time aside once a week to write down what I’m celebrating that week. It has already had significant impacts on my mindset and I can’t wait to see how helpful it proves to be as I continue to do it.
Sleep - Of course it can be difficult to get enough sleep with little ones, but it is important to at least try. I’ve noticed when I am tired that my mind likes to play little tricks on me. I tell myself stories that are not real, but when I am well-rested it could be a stormy day and I feel the sun is shining bright!
These are just an example of some activities you can incorporate into your mindset reset ritual, but it’s important to develop a routine that works for you. That’s why I am including my free Mindset Reset Ritual Worksheet so you can create one of your own!
