4 Tips to Shift Your Attitude so You Can Feel Lighter

Posted by on Jun 15, 2017 in Connecting with Others, Emotions, Health and Wellness, Stress Tips | 0 comments

 

Our inner dialogue can really pull us into a place of distraction, not being present and feeling stuck in a bad mood. This is like tuning into a radio channel that is playing “Gloomy FM”. This can be very stressful if we desire a different reality but feel like we are stuck inside the reality that is weighing us down. A bad mood derails self-confidence and zaps our motivation.

The one thing we can always change in life is our attitude and how we approach our day. Many things are outside of our control but our attitude is within our freewill to choose how we want to show up. We can stay in a lousy attitude or we can shift out of our negative feelings to lighten up our energy and feel more positive.

Here are 4 tips to adjust your attitude:

How to Create a “Sticky” Plan for Sustainable Change

Posted by on Jan 19, 2017 in Emotions, Health and Wellness, SMART Goals, Stress Reduction, Stress Resilience, Transformation | 0 comments

 

You have goals for 2017 and now you find that your motivation to change is waxing and waning. Life is busy and you are distracted from your goals for this year.

Here is the good news, the most successful change happens when you take small, incremental steps and get those locked in before you add to your plan.

The reason that you have failed to sustain your goals for 2017 is not a reflection that you failed but more that your plan has not been “sticky” enough to stack your deck for success.

SELF-giving for Thanksgiving

Directions 4 Wellness

It’s that time of year again where we are both excited about the coming holidays and dreading them too with all the extra preparations and festivities to add to our plate. It can be a time-crunch causing us to push with our energy to beat the clock and squeeze in all that shopping, baking, prepping and socializing.

 

The holiday season is a time when we push through to not miss out on anything and pull our hair out at the same time when we feel we are burning the candle at both ends.

 

So here is a tip to use when you have so much to do and so little time. It’s about prioritizing your to-do list by the discernment of “I want to” vs. “I should do”.

 

Here’s the question to ask yourSELF and many when you have competing priorities and many opportunities. Ask yourself, “What do I want to do?” Say yes to those things that are truly your heart’s desire to fuel for your energy bank. When you hear yourself saying “I should do this…” then that is the thing to delegate to someone else or say no thanks. The things that you “should” do are what create the overwhelm because they take up precious space in your day.

When you prioritize the things that you want to do, you can gain energy from that joyful place of giving. When you give because you should to it, you will risk opening the door to resentment. When we over give and deplete ourselves or spread ourselves too thin, we risk going into resentful giving. There is no joy or energy gain if our holidays are driven by the should-do’s and not the I want to do’s”.

 

Practice fueling your energy bank by listening with your heart’s desire. Joyful giving is energizing and resentful giving is depleting. Always give from a full tank to not deplete your energy reserves and run yourself down.
