Checking-in with yourself gives you the opportunity to take a break and connect with yourself.
You’re essentially gathering valuable information while treating yourself like you would a dear friend.
This habit can be useful when a challenging emotion is starting to manifest, or when you’re doing an unhelpful behavior.
Invest 5 minutes every now and then during your day to simply check-in.
Here are some questions to consider:
•How am I doing?
•Am I experiencing difficult emotions or thoughts?
•Am I doing some unhelpful behaviors?
•Is there something I need that I can offer myself?
