I’d like to set you all a challenge. I’d like you to buy a notebook. Doesn’t have to be anything fancy – just something that you’ll keep by your bedside, or on the coffee table, or in your handbag. You can decorate it, doodle on the front of it, wrap it old school style OR just keep it as it is.
This notebook is now called ‘The Book of Me.’ A book entirely dedicated to you. Written by you, for you!
I want you to pick up your book whenever you’re feeling down, overwhelmed, anxious, tired, or even just because.
And each time you pick up the book, I’d like for you to pick a question from the back of the book (soon to be explained), turn to the front of the book and answer that question. You can do as many as you like. And you can repeat questions to see if/how your answers change.
