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!
Do you ever feel like your life is moving too fast and there aren’t enough hours in the day?
I sure do! I lead a dual life, graphic designer by day and healer by night.
The challenge of working full-time, making time for a spiritual practice, and building a business is a daily balancing act. Some days run smoothly while others are “hair on fire” days. I try to remember it’s about the journey not the destination. Sometimes that’s easier said then done.
I am trying an experiment over the new few weeks to find better balance and structure while having fun and feeling great. I hope you guys find it helpful as well.
My 5-step game plan:
1. Find a quiet spot with a journal to get your “Zen” on
2. Create a list of activities that bring you joy and add some structure
3. Mark your calendar with your new activities (you can give them fun code names)
4. Keep a journal of how you feel during the week
5. Review your list
Drop me a line and let me know how it worked for you. What activities were you able to add or remove? Were you able to get back into the flow of your life instead of working against the current? Stay tuned for progress reports over the next few weeks.
