200 Ways to Feed the Soul: Tips 41-50: Do Less

Do Less: Be More ... by Janice Taylor, Self-Help / Weight-Loss Artist

A quarter of the way there, on my way to 200 Ways to Feed Your Soul, here follows tips 41-50; week 5!

It is quite amazing!  As I said last week, the idea of creating 200 ways to feed your soul is a daunting task, but once again, by simply breaking it into bite size portions – ten at a time, it is seemingly doable (so far, so good)!

Will I make the full 200 without cracking, saying “Oh NO! It’s just too much to do!” … we’ll see!

TIPS 41-50:  FEED YOUR SOUL – CHANGE YOUR WEIGHT

41.   Start a De-Stress Thyself File:  Magazine Madness; Escape Into the Pages.  Grab yourself a hefty stack of magazines, escape into the pages, focus on the photos and rip out any and all that speak to you!   Create and keep near your ‘de-stress myself’ file.

42.   Do Less.  Sometimes less is more and in this case, doing less often leads to better, more focused results.  When overwhelmed or on edge, take a good, long break. Do less.

43.   Scale Down Your Wants.  Not wanting ‘stuff’ is better than possessing it.

44.   Go to the Library.  A novel approach to reading, these days for sure, but actually going to an actual, real library (getting out of the house), and borrowing a hard copy of a book has its soul feeding advantages. Try it and see how good you’ll feel.

45.   Stand Tall; Stand Erect. You will not only look five pounds thinner, but you will feel more confident, for sure!

46.   Breathe Deep and Say …  I have arrived.  I am home. (source: Thich Nhat Hanh)

47.   Paint Your Favorite Color On a Canvas, and then stencil your favorite word atop in its complementary color!

48.   Give Yourself Permission to Play.  As important as work is, do not forget to play, to have fun, to enjoy life.

49.   Create a Sacred Space and Just Be.  Light a candle, put on some soft music that feeds the soul, or choose to sit in silence … just be.

50.   Give.  Give something away.  A possession, a smile, a compliment, and see how it both feeds and liberates your soul, all at once.

Spread the word … NOT the icing!
