Does Your Life Practice Match What You Think Your Life Is? Quick Alignment Tool
Do the thoughts you hold about your life actually match with your actions?
We might be surprised at how often our thoughts & actions are not synced. This can show up as chronic frustration, dissatisfaction, a sense of missed expectations, being misunderstood.
When our mind + body + spirit are in sync, & thoughts & actions are in harmony, we feel heightened energy, sense of possibility, & flow with life. We are living aligned with our purpose & intentions.
How to get back in flow?
Realignment can be simple. Life Practice Listing is quick alignment tool to make it easy to see where we are off course. Our life is essentially our consistent practices. We may think we practice integrity, for example. But do we in actuality?
Life Practice Listing is a 3-step process you can do in minutes. I recommend starting the list & brainstorming for several minutes. Then adding to the list throughout the day as you remember other practices to add. Review your practices at the end of the day & notice what areas are surprises. You will quickly see where your practices need to shift to align with your thoughts.
Life Practice Listing in 3 Steps
1. List-storm your answers to these 2 prompts:
- What actions & values do you practice every day?
- What choices & actions do you practice multiple times a week?
2. Review your Life Practice List & highlight where your actions don't meet your thoughts.
For example, if you self-describe as a runner, & you aren't injured, how many days/miles a week are you consistently running? If you self-describe as a person of integrity, where are you not being truthful with yourself or others? You know best where your pain points are.
3. Create a Re-Alignment Checklist.
Write a new mini-Life Practice List of the modified or new actions you will practice consistently that feel aligned with your inner Yes, creating a sense of wholeness, rather than disconnection. This is your self-coaching checklist for bringing your daily practices to a place that feels true for you.
Life will feel a re-energized flow. Happy aligning!
