Take Fifteen

Make it count

A nightly routine is excellent.

Doing the same things every night has several benefits:

  • Picking the proactive activities (say writing a thank you note to someone) compounds and the effects are¬†massive.
  • Things most of us hate, like cleaning up (I know I do) can take much less time before bed.
  • It is a signal to your brain to start to shut down.

This post is going to focus on a proactive activity, reflection.

Reflection is a great tool to understand the past, present, and possible future. The best part, it only takes 15 minutes.

How you reflect comes in different flavors:

  • Meditation
  • Writing
  • Gratitude list
  • A thank you note

The job of this post isn’t to walk you through. There are several tools on the internet to help on that end.

The purpose is to act as a reminder.
