YES! YOU CAN … Move from Crappola to Incredible … from Rung Out Dish Rag to Woo Hoo Happy in Under 15 Minutes. by Janice Taylor, Life & Wellness Coach, Cert. Hypnotist, Author, Columnist, Seminar Leader and 50-Pound Big-Time-Loser! (write Janice for FREE LIFE Consult!)
Are you tired of thinking about … well, everything? Do you have about as much enthusiasm as a wet noodle? Do you feel like you just ought to curl up in bed, with or without the bonbons? Me too!
Yesterday was an extreme day for me. I was multi-tasking like a 300-arm octopus. Truthfully, nothing to complain about any more than anyone else. I’m just sayin’ it was TOO MUCH!!! By the time the mid-afternoon rolled around, I felt like a rung out dish rag. You know what I mean?
So, I called out to Our Lady of Weight Loss for HELPpppppppp!!!! And here’s what she advised me to do.
Take a Hike: Get outta the house and take a brisk or not-so-brisk 15 minute walk. It’s amazing what a short walk can do! (I put on my baseball cap and sunglasses and headed outside incognito because I was a true mess … and walked around the local park. Whoa … was that great!)
Hot Aromatherapy Bath: Even if you only take a 15 minute bath break, fill up the tub with your best aromatherapy oils. Enjoy the soak! Breathe Deep!!! Bonus: not only will you smell good, but so will your bathroom and quite possibly the rest of your house!
Phone a Friend: Call someone and say, “Do you have a few minutes to listen. I need to unload and tell someone my ‘story.’” This is not being negative. This is not wallowing in self-pity. Neither of which I believe in. This is unloading, clearing space in your head so that you can MOVE ON! This is admitting that you are human, you have your limits and you have reached them! Caution: Limit your B&M (bitch n’ moan) session to 3 minutes. 5 minutes, tops! Don’t want to burn-out your friend.
Plan a FUN Activity: Either block out some time for yourself later in your day, the next day or the next week. Be sure to PUT IT ON YOUR CALENDAR (yes, I’m yelling). Do have something FUN to look forward to. (Tonight, Peter and I are going to the movies … don’t know which one yet, but I am pickin’ it!)
Feed on Inspiring Words: Read a passage from your favorite book. The Bible or even the greatest permanent fat removal book ever – All Is Forgiven, Move On - something you can easily pick up and put down. Find something that shifts you from angst to ahhhhhh.
Well, there you have it. I took a full hour off and did one thing after the other. A walk, a hot bath, phoned a friend, planned to go to the movies and read my own book! (In all honesty and with great humility, it’s an inspiring and uplifting book.
Please, do tell … how do you move from RUNG OUT DISH RAG to WOO HOO HAPPY?!!!
Spread the word, NOT the icing!
you are … BEYOND MEASURE!
