The Weekly Check-In
The weekly check-in. Is it a waste of time? Well, we do not think so, no. A weekly check-in is where you put time aside to check in with yourself. It’s so often that we let weeks, months and sometimes years pass us by without stopping to see how we are doing.
The weekly check-in has numerous benefits:
It can reduce stress. Offloading all of the things going on in your mind is very soothing.
It keeps you focussed. Knowing what you have done and what you are doing keeps you on track.
It stops you from going down the wrong path. When you listen to yourself, you can prevent making the wrong choices.
So with all of these benefits, we thought it would be a good idea to help you get started. So we wanted to share some of our favourite questions to ask when you have a check-in. These are only ideas to spark your imagination though, so feel free to tailor them to you and take away ones that don’t fit.
