We’re so busy these days juggling home, family, friends, careers, and unforeseen events a.k.a. WTF moments, that we often find ourselves reaching for something to calm us down, give us a boost of energy or help us get some clarity.
The quickest and healthiest way I’ve found is to be still and get quiet for a few minutes at a time throughout the day. I simply find a spot where I can be alone, close my eyes, take some deep breaths and go to my happy place. Amazingly, I quickly feel calmer, my mind is clearer and I feel re-charged and able to continue with my day. This is especially helpful when I’m experiencing challenging circumstances.
I highly recommend starting a practice of mindfulness, meditation or contemplation. Yep, learn to put yourself in time-out a few times a day, you’ll be glad you did!
Mel’s Two Cents: The much needed boost of energy and clear sense of direction you seek is not found in worrying or rehashing your discomfort with others; it is found in the still small voice of wisdom within, that speaks in soft whispers when you are still and silent enough to hear it. Shhh…
Until next time.
