I’ve had a look at a couple of my goals today:
- Relaxation Techniques
- Slow my breathing down to 10 breaths a minute
On my blackboard, I have these as Relaxation and Breathing. I stood there and looked at them. Saying the words to myself and thought; they’re just words!
I breathe daily. If I didn’t I wouldn’t be writing this right now. I relax by watching telly, reading etc.
It occurred to me that these goals aren’t right for me. They need changing. Over the last couple of weeks, I’ve tried a few calming/mindfulness/meditation apps. I found these helped with my breathing and relaxation. I’ve also got back into yoga a little. That helps me with my breathing. I feel relaxed afterwards.
After a little thought, I’ve come to find 2 new goals to replace the above, that resonate with me more:
- Develop a meditation practice
- Develop a yoga practice
I believe this gives me more of a guidance to allow me to work on them, step by step. Looking for my goals I do believe they connect with a couple others. I’ll have a think about those, see if I wanna make changes.
