Questions to Check in with Yourself and Boost Your Well-Being
I love questions, especially asking ourselves questions. Because getting curious about ourselves, about what we need and want, about how we’re doing, about where we want to go is vital to our well-being; it’s vital to building fulfilling, fun, meaningful lives. Below are questions to explore.
- What can I let go of that’s getting in the way of my health and well-being, that’s no longer serving or supporting me?
- Have I been letting myself feel my feelings?
- What can I learn from a mistake or not-so-great decision I made this week?
- What am I feeling right now?
- What’s one way I can play today or this week?
- How can I soothe myself without falling into the rabbit hole of substances like alcohol?
- What inspires me?
- What can I forgive myself for?
- What can I thank myself for?
- What am I tired of? What can I do about it?
- What can I create that I need or want or dream of?
- How can I make my space a bit cozier?
- Am I following anyone on social media who makes me feel terrible about myself?
- What’s a beautiful sight, scent, taste or sound that I’ve experienced lately? Or what sight, scent, taste or sound do I want to experience? And how can I experience it more often?
- What empowers me?
- What am I doing right now that I don’t enjoy or maybe even makes me miserable? Can I delegate it, ask for help or simply forget it?
- Where am I hurting?
- Where am I healing?
- Who can I reach out to who might need my support, who might need someone to listen?
- How can I be kinder to myself right now?
Of course, pick the questions you like. Or create your own questions. And, always, always, do what works best for you.
