Ever feeling busy? Tired? Unfocused? If not, please contact me so I can listen to you, mine your wisdom, and share it with family, friends, and clients.
If your answer is ‘yes’, try the following four easy practices for 7 days straight and see what it does for you. They each take 30 seconds or less:
- Every time you realize you’re frowning, switch to a smile and hold it for at least 30 seconds.
- Every time you feel rushed, pause for 15 seconds and either close your eyes or look at something pleasant.
- Every time you detect a negative thought, switch to a credible constructive thought and repeat the thought silently 4 times.
- Every time you feel upset with someone, before you address the person, send her or him a silent, not spoken,‘I wish you [name] well’message (with credit to Mayo Clinic’s dr. Amid Soot.)
These practices are examples of what I call ‘taking out the head trash’ and of relaxing just a little more.
Do it, experience it – that much you owe yourself. And you have to admit, it’s impossible not to have a couple of 30 seconds in your day to spend on something healthy. Lets just agree: You have nothing to lose.
