I’m gonna be honest with you, I’m in a bit of a mood today. Can’t seem to find my rhythm. Not sure why, yesterday I did all the right things, ate right, had a great workout, spent time with friends but alas, today I’m cranky. Maybe it’s the nasty weather or maybe there’s something going on in my head that I can’t put a finger on. Either way I’m reminded how important it is to remain calm and to feed your soul as well as your body.
Life ebbs and flows. If you can remember and trust that than your relationships with others as well as with yourself will flow much more smoothly. Be kind to yourself when the mood calls for it, learn to forgive and be patient allowing for the waves of life to flow.
Just like anything, it takes practice to relax and live like this, but the benefits will expand your life in ways you may never have imagined. Learning to pay attention to your energy and mood is fundamental for achieving your goals. Here are some tips for finding and incorporating more of that flowing ease into your life:
- Take note of when you’re happy – When you’re happy, life flows. It sounds simple because it is. When you’re doing things that make you happy, you open the way for even more happiness to flow into your life.
- Pay attention to your aggression level – If you’re fighting and obsessive, you might actually be pushing too hard and pushing your ultimate goal even farther away.
- Feed your soul every day – Make a point of taking time to get happy. Do something for someone you don’t know · Take some quite time just for yourself · Play with your kids or your pets · Pay attention to your romantic partner · Your friends · Your garden.
Remember, you can’t strengthen the body without also strengthening the soul.
p.s. Thank you Ronald from NC for your “comment” yesterday in reference to my Workin’ off my muffin post. While I appreciate your offer “to take a ride on… (your construction apparatus?)” I feel that posting such a comment might be misunderstood by the masses. I trust you understand.
p.s.s. I love it when people send me comments. I will post them if I feel they’re appropriate. Send what you like, either way I am sure to be amused!
