Time for a pause.
How are you feeling in this moment?
Are you breathing with ease?
Are you focused on the positivity in each moment?
It’s good to check in with yourself. Noticing how we feel in each moment slows us down to give us the opportunity to fine tune. Our small adjustments along the way is how major shifting can occur in life. To have a more balanced and less stress-paced life starts with simple steps, and every step helps you along to a joyful path.
Just a reminder – take it easy on yourself. It helps if you can take a fun or light approach. Being happy should not be work or something you “have to get done”. It is not a checklist. It is taking small moments for yourself throughout the day so you are in the driver’s seat. On very busy days, check in as much as possible to see how you’re feeling and breathing. Even if you have to go to the bathroom, lock the door, sit down and take 30 long breaths. No one knows whether you are using the restroom or not. Of course, you don’t have to use the restroom for personal time, but I know many of you out there (because I used to be one) that can not find much quiet time to yourself. That is why initially you may need to be creative. This is where you can have fun and giggle. Nothing is more important than centering yourself so you can better deal with your emotions, your family, your job, and your co-workers. Look for as many positive aspects in your day that you possibly can. End the day with noticing all the things that went right. Were there any surprises that things worked out better than you planned? It’s noticing these things that raise your vibrations and attract more happy moments.
It is important to remember that you do have a choice in how you create your life. You are more than just an observer. When you realize how much power you really have, your small choices in everyday moments can yield to you much happier events and circumstances. I found it was worth a try, and now I really appreciate the lighter, happier lifestyle I have. I do not have to worry about so many things. I can take it easy more often. I can love and appreciate myself no matter what image is looking back from the mirror. I’ve learned it is worth my time to more consistently go with the flow. When I trust that the universe is working out in my favor, lo and behold, it does. These days when something unpleasant sneaks up, I am learning to look at it through a different lens. I’ll address that more in the next blog, but you can rise up and change your vibration around things that aren’t so pleasing. It goes back to the simple step of tuning in, taking a deep breath and seeing it from another angle. It’s not rocket science, and if I can do it then so can you, my friend. Take more pauses, trust yourself, and let joy unfold.
This is only one process.
I have many more ideas for you…
Soon I will be asking what you’re doing for yourself just for fun. If your not doing much, it may be time for your joy adjustment.
