daily reality check

Creating a meaningful way to check-in with yourself every morning can provide the basis for sustainable self-care.

How often do you stop and really check-in with how you are feeling? Often when life gets busy we start to neglect even our most basic needs, when all it could take is a quick 5 min reality check to bring more awareness to our day and keep us on track.


Having a daily reality check is a self-care practice that can have many benefits including:

  • giving you focus around the aspects of your life that are important to you
  • providing time for you to reflect on how you are really feeling
  • enabling you to course-correct if needed to make sure you are looking after your needs
  • feel more organised and in control of your day rather than allowing the day to control you
the practice
  1. Make a list of the essential things you need in your day to feel like you have look after your basic self-care needs. An example of this might be – to consciously move for at least 30 mins a day or to make sure you take regular breaks at work. It’s all about what you need, so make it your own.
  2. Write the list down and keep it in your diary, or somewhere you will see it in the morning.
  3. Make time for yourself daily to sit down with a cup of tea and your diary, review your daily check-in questions and make time for the things that are important to you.
  4. Review every season and update for any seasonal self-care needs as they change throughout the year.

The great thing is that this doubles as a way to check-in with yourself at the end of the day to see how you’ve gone and to give yourself a pat on the back for making it happen.

Here is my own list of daily check-in questions for Summer that I use for myself and with clients to help cover off some of the essentials.
