Before jumping into, “What do I need to DO today?” you might like to begin with a practice of inquiry around the question, “How do I want to BE today? How do I want to show up, for myself and others?” Taking a few moments to connect with your purpose from a sincere place of deep intention aligns you what is truly important in your life. In this way, your doing flows more naturally from your being.

This helps us live more fully, and remain balanced in the face of life’s challenges.
