Blueprint for Daily Living

In one week from today, my first 21-Day Mind/Body Cleanse with the incredibly talented wellness rock star, Dr. Frank Lipman, begins! Have you registered? Wondering how this is any different from all the other programs that appear at the first of the year? Well, all the As to your Qs are here.

To give you an idea of the types of things involved in the “mind” portion of the program and to help those of you not joining us this time around stick to your resolutions, I want to share an exercise I created to help my clients stay on track and not feel overwhelmed by the onslaught of new ideas and concepts they were learning in therapy. This exercise, Blueprint for Daily Living, will help you streamline all the things you read, see, and hear about living a healthy, fulfilling life and put it into your words and daily actions you can take that support your vision of your dream life.

All you are going to do is list daily actions you are willing to take to support your vision.

You can pull out a pen and a piece of paper or use your computer to create a list of Positive Daily Actions and then make copies to place where you will see it often. You can write or type a new list every morning. You can use a paper calendar or the calendar on your phone, computer, or tablet. Write sticky notes. Make it your desktop, phone, or tablet background. Whatever style works for you and wherever you look often.

When you write something down, you’re more likely to do it. Using an actual pen and physically writing in my journal separates this daily ritual from my work and social media life in a way that produces more results. But feel free to do whatever feels good to you.

What are Positive Daily Actions?

Once you get clear on what your dream life like looks like, ask yourself what you can do on a daily basis to support that vision.

Here’s my list:
–       Meditate
–       Green Goodness (eat/drink my greens)
–       Hydration
–       Shake My Booty (exercise)
–       Bells and Breathing (set an alarm on my phone for every 4 hours to stop and take 5 deep breaths)
–       Pay It Forward (do at least one random act of kindness)
–       Pick My Mantra (select a word or phrase to focus on today)
–       Feeling State (how do I want to feel today)
–       Be Courageous (take one leap of faith today)
–       Gratitude (throughout the day, write down everyone/thing for which I am grateful).
*When you feel gratitude, you draw more experiences into your life for which to feel grateful.

What positive daily actions are you willing to commit in order to bring your dream life to fruition? Share below. There’s accountability not only in writing, but also in declaring and sharing!

I hope you enjoyed this exercise and take the time each day to do these actions.

If you’re looking to dive deeper into physical and mental health, join Dr. Frank Lipman and me for a total transformation that you can easily sustain once our 21 days together are up! It’s tools like these that will keep your resolutions solid and successful! For more details and registration, click here!

    As usual, you have presented a do-able strategy for creating the life you want with daily deliberate intention. I find writing my intentions in my journal help me to stay accountable. I love the visibility of this Blueprint, bringing awareness to what we want and what we need and to be sure to incorporate them daily. This can change you life for the better!

    I have chosen your post, Blueprint for Daily Living, for the #JournalChat Pick of the Day on 1/8/13 for all things journaling on Twitter; a link will be posted on the social networks, on my blog and website Refresh with Dawn Herring, and in my weekly Refresh Journal:

    #JournalChat Live is every Thursday, 5 EST/2 PST, for all things journaling on Twitter; our topic this week is Your Journaling: A Vital Vision.

    […] Why am I telling you this? Because it’s a New Year of course! With the New Year usually comes the same kinds of resolutions, and even if your resolutions aren’t the same, the way you go about making and keeping them is. So I am here to offer you a new approach to an old tradition. […]
