Today I did a personal meditation using a mantra that I learned from Christa Resources LLC several years ago.
I ended up watching the interview Marie Forleo did with Elizabeth Gilbert on youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HyUYa-BnjU8 It was amazing and super uplifting and just really spoke to me, I was especially drawn to the way they talked about appreciating fear but not letting it control. I know that I have such a hard time with control.
I also listened to 10 minutes of You are a Badass by Jen Sincero which is a great start but I will definitely be listening to more later.
I have been noticing that my screen time has been so intense since being at home that it is crazy so I am trying to listen to things and not spend so much time on the computer or the phone.
We went for a walk so I got some exercise in. I need to be more aware of doing my SAVERS miracle morning when I first wake up!
During my Silence today I did a Chakra meditation. It made me realize that I need to write about balancing the chakras, so I will start working on that. I need to remember to do my Affirmations out loud probably before I leave my room. I started to create a 5 year vision board on Pinterest and will continue to add to it.

Understanding this connection will help you stop that inner voice in your head that stops you from achieving your goals.” She provides 6 tips to help with success and I enjoy most of them; speak outloud in the mirror, and positive affirmation being a few of them. I did have a bit of resistance to # 3 Dress Smartly; I love this idea but clearly need to get some better fitting clothes first because sadly this tends to make me feel more self conscious rather than more confident. I will work on finding an outfit that makes me feel good.
For today I will write down 5 strengths to boost my confidence:
Ok, so yesterday after I updated you all about my journey to build self confidence I found some articles and books to read. I have not read them yet but this is a few of the ones I plan on reading during my R time the next few days.
Hi everyone, with all this time off I am going to spend at least the next 7 days working on confidence building activities. I am going to start everyday doing Hal Elrod’s S.A.V.E.R.S which is :
S : Silence a time for meditation
A: Affirmation a time to repeat affirmations to myself, ideally outloud.
V: Visualization, first I will look at what I want to create and then I will create a vision board and I will look at that
E: Exercise I will exercise for at least 10 mins in the morning
R: Reading I will read 10 mins a day on self help or an article about confidence
S: Scribing I will spend 10 minutes writing
I will start to look at confidence building activities that take 30 minutes or less and will work on doing one everyday for the next 7 days. Today I will find activities so that I do not spend all the time looking for more
