How To Get Better At Self-Care Using The Power Hour Method

How To Get Better At Self-Care Using The Power Hour Method:

Some excerpts:

Choose Three Activities

Start by choosing three activities from the list below for your mind, body, and soul. You can also think about activities you love or want to try that may not be on the list.

Set Aside Time

Set aside an hour in the morning to try this. It may seem impossible to wake up an hour earlier, but the goal is to find activities that are exciting and enjoyable enough to you that you don’t mind losing that extra hour of sleep. You could also go in baby steps and just focus on one area (mind, body, or soul) for 20 minutes each day.

Start The Timer

Do each activity for 20 minutes. Time yourself. You don’t have to go in any particular order, just choose the thing that excites you the most first. For me, I usually like to wake up and either read or write, then I’ll do some yoga, and then I’ll listen to a podcast or watch a video.

P.S. You totally don’t have to do this in the morning or in one big chunk. You can span it throughout the day or do it before bed. I personally think it’s the best strategy to get excited about waking up.
