Are You Ready To Bring That Holiday Feeling Into Your Busy Life?
You know that feeling you get on a special holiday? When you become aware of your surroundings in a joyful way, feel gratitude, pleasure or just pure relaxation?
How often do you bring that ability to appreciate the good stuff into your daily life? Especially if you are going through a challenging time, it can seem really hard to find anything that will end the sadness, anxiety, frustration or pain.
However, remember this, you don’t see the world how it is, you see it how you are. Your brain has a built in negativity bias to protect you from danger.
But you know, you can do something that will begin to nudge you towards seeing life differently. One small action a day, every day, can make the difference. You can’t lift a thousand pounds in one go, but you can lift a thousand pounds one pound at a time.
Go for a walk, to the gym, meet a friend, do something kind for yourself or someone else, these are all small ways to begin to re-engage the brain for optimism and calm. When you scatter moments of presence through your day, a new sense of order can emerge, like punctuation in a book.
