warrior wednesday

How did your week go, trying to incorporate my five tips into finding more happiness and fun into your schedule? Were any new activities more exciting than you expected? Were there challenges trying to find time, or any pushback from your family and friends about trying to make time for yourself?

On Wednesday night, I created a relaxing environment by lighting my favorite vanilla candle, I dimmed my lights and played soft jazz music in the background (since I live in NYC there were a few sirens as well).

Looking over my lengthy list (see below) it isn’t surprising that I wasn’t able to accomplish everything. Although I was able to find time to work on my blog and business, I missed out on my evening meditation practice, Qi Gong only happened once, and I wasn’t able to make yoga on Saturday morning due to a splitting headache.

Missing activities that reduce stress and increase creativity impacted my week more than expected. I was more tightly wound than usual when last-minute projects rolled in and I had to figure out other ways to tap into “the zone” since I didn’t make it to the gym (my temple for creativity) during the week.

Being perfect isn’t the objective; making time for yourself and having fun is. This is a work in progress. We’re all a work in progress. Good luck with the week ahead and drop me a line to let me know how you’re doing.

putting yourself out there

quote081814

A great exercise for getting out of your comfort zone is talking
to three new people a day. This can happen anywhere and be a lot of fun.

For example, you could engage a stranger in elevator conversation by asking
about the weather, while waiting on a long line at a bookstore or coffee shop, ask
for book or coffee recommendations. Waiting has now evolved from a tedious task
to an exciting new adventure. You might learn a few new facts, pick up some
new book ideas and who knows,
 maybe you’ll even get a date out of it.

Remember, what you put out into the universe comes back to you. Lighten up,
have some fun and let the world unfold around you in unexpected ways!
