Weekly Challenge 4 - Week of January 8 – 15
Welcome back everyone! This week's challenge is a few hours late, but I hope you enjoyed last week’schallenge of the 10 things you find fun to do.
I have come up with an interesting challenge this week:
In your journal, along with the three things per day that go well, start recording your mood upon waking and before sleeping. Also, during the day, begin to notice when your mood starts to dip or falter, or you feel that twinge of sadness well up from “nowhere”. Pause and before engaging the feeling – ask yourself what went through your mind at that moment.
This approach to mindfulness will help you track your moods. If you can find out what things are triggering your bad moods you might be able to circumvent a slide into depression or at least prevent it from being so intense because you’ll know it’s just those thoughts and you don’t have to engage the feelings to their full extent.
If you haven’t been following the Weekly Challenges, start here today!
