Happy day 5! If you’ve been following along during the first week of this 7 day reset going live, then I hope your first week in 2020 is off to a great start!

Here is your mindfulness exercise for today: write down your why
Do you ever take a moment in the morning to set an intention for the day? That is your assignment for today. Find a quiet moment first thing in the morning (if you can!), and take 1 minute to set an intention your day.
What can that look like?
Setting the intention to eat healthy foods.
Setting the intention to be calm in challenges.
Setting the intention to show more kindness even when it feels hard.
Setting the intention to speak positivity into your own mind.
It can be whatever you want it to be in that moment, but whatever you choose it to be, repeat it all throughout the day.
