Rob introduced me to a great feature on Google Chrome this week. A time mangement tool, each time you try to open a new browser tab, the image above appears..."What is your main focus today?" with a blinking line below for you to ponder and input your answer.
While I certainly could use this to input my one big work task each day, I instead have been using it for very clear and simple reminders of how I wish to be. Over the last few days, here is what I have typed.
What is Your Main Focus Today?
Gratitude for life's challenges
Trusting that I can have it all
I always stay on the screen for a moment before I start my work search. Reading the words, I give myself a moment to clear my head and concentrate on how I wish to engage in my work. Maybe next week I will start adding in a work action item in parentheses: Save the World (& finish my evaluation template) .
What (1) thing do you want to focus on today?

Alternate Nostril Breathing (Nadi Shodhan Pranayama)
Assists in relaxation & clearing your mind
Complete a well-rounded warm-up with emphasis on the spine (i.e. cat/cow, Sun Salutation).
Sit comfortably on the floor, your bed or couch.
Soften your eyes and take a few easy rounds of breath.
Hold your right hand with your palm in front of your face, and fold down your pointer and middle fingers.
Before you inhale, use your thumb to hold your right nostril closed.
Hold onto that breath, then release the right nostril and use your ring finger to hold your left nostril closed as you exhale.
Inhale while still holding the left nostril closed, then switch nostrils to exhale.
Repeat this cycle for a couple of minutes.
