Talk About Mini-Retreats

Share your Mini-Retreat experience with friends and family. Talk about the shifts you are noticing in your day when you take Mini-Retreats. The more you talk about it, the easier it will become for you to remember to take Mini-Retreats. By sharing your success, you might also inspire people in your environment to begin taking Mini-Retreats. Soon you will be able to support each other on your way to establishing Mini-Retreats as a habit.

Book an Appointment with Yourself

Put Mini-Retreats in your calendar, just as you would with any other important appointment. This serves as a reminder but also helps you to take Mini-Retreats as seriously as you take all your other commitments.

Use Visual Reminders

I am a huge fan of signs. In fact when I first realized that I got all my great ideas when I took a washroom break, I painted a colorful sign with the words “take more breaks” and put it above my desk. It served as a reminder for me to create the new habit and get off my chair more often, even when I didn’t need to.  You can post signs around the house, office, car and anywhere else you see them regularly. You can use plain simple words, or images that trigger your memory.
