This week we’ve asked Sarah-Nell Walsh, from Wayfinders, LLC to talk all about how she starts her day. Let’s get to chatting!
Q: Let’s get right to the important stuff? How do you like your coffee or tea to start your morning? If you go a different route (we’re intrigued) do share.
A: I drink my coffee black! I got super into intermittent fasting a few years ago and switched from cream + sugar to straight caffeine. I buy super high quality coffee that has tasting notes, which you can only taste if it is black.
A: Brushing my teeth (even my hair can wait some days!).
A: After I make my coffee, I sit down with my phone and my Best Self Journal and write out my calendar for the day, a scripture verse, 3 things I’m grateful for, how I want to show up that day, and what support I need. Then, I read my daily meditation from the Book of Awakening by Mark Nepo. After that, I’m centered and ready to #slaytheday!
A: I strive for rigid flexibility. If I have a good framework for success, I can be confident that not every day needs to hit a perfect trajectory for me to be moving in the right direction. I give myself a lot of grace so a bad day doesn’t snowball into a bad week.
A: I think setting an intention for how you want to show up is the easiest place to start. Intentions are heart-driven practices that help you embody and live into your core values. Having a clear intention can help you show up as your best self as you navigate the chaos of daily life.
Thank you for your inspiration and insight. Let’s chat again soon.
