Mondays bring a mix of emotions — some with boundless energy and others feeling a touch of the blues. When I need an extra lift, I turn to the "Getting into the Vortex" exercise, a gem I found in Fabienne Fredrickson's "Boldheart" program.
The exercise is beautifully simple yet remarkably effective: it reorients our focus. Often, we spend energy fixating on the 2% that's not going as planned, overlooking the incredible 98% that's going well. "Getting into the Vortex" shifts that balance, directing our attention to the positives.
How does it work? Choose a timeframe, and list your achievements, both in your professional and personal life. Then, beside each accomplishment, detail how you achieved it. This exercise is a powerful tool, shedding light on what went right and precisely how you made it happen.
By acknowledging your accomplishments, you not only enlighten your day but also gain insight into the strategies that work best for you. It's psychology at play, and it's incredibly effective.
Ready to make this week more focused and fruitful? Dive into the vortex and watch the magic happen!
