How do you want to feel at the end of the day? Most of us will not answer tired or worn out, but rather accomplished or refreshed.
Setting up how you want the day to end will help guide your entire day until this moment.
Write out how you want to feel when you lay down for bed or how you want your emotional state to be. Keep this in your mind as you go through each hour of the day.
The path to being mindful is not something that once you get there you are done. Being mindful is something we must practice over and over again. So grab your journal and set aside your 3 minutes for these mindful prompts.
