Why You Should Make a “People, Places, Things” List

This episode of The Daily Distance is brought to you by The Roosevelt Collection, a Chicago destination in the heart of the South Loop neighborhood where life meets leisure. While we keep our distance, The Roosevelt Collection is helping us to sweat, eat, shop and relax together. They’re looking forward to seeing you in real life soon. 

Welcome to the Daily Distance, a new daily series from the creators of #WeGotGoals. In these short episodes, we’re bringing you one daily goal you can set for yourself during this chaotic time- one actionable thing you can do to move your body, connect with a friend, prioritize your mental health, get some work done, and practice a little bit of self-care. 

Daily Distance Ariel Upton

Ariel Upton, co-founder of the TODAY I DID IT RIGHT Approach and Self-Connection Journal, is a ray of sunshine traveling over the airwaves from Sweden. She joins the Daily Distance to teach us all about one of the “rights” found in the TIDIR journal: the PPT list. In this exercise, you identify the ten most essential people, places, and things in your life. We talk about why making this list is helpful for both present-you and future-you reflecting on this crazy time, plus Kristen shares what made her lists (spoiler alert: always peanut butter).
