Lift Your Mood With This Simple Trick

By on January 30, 2015

Does it ever feel like everything is going your way?

Like, even if you could plan things a certain way, you could never, ever in a million years, imagine a plan as perfect as the one unfolding before you?

On days like these, it’s easy to give thanks.

As I’m writing this, I’m in Houston, Texas, giving an Emergency Dispatcher’s Wellness Workshop, while Jon and Dana are presenting a workshop in LA on how to get back into the dating world after a break-up. ZenLife in action!

What’s the action unfolding for you, right now? What are you grateful for?

Even when we’re not soaring the heights of our bold vision for the future, we can root ourselves in positivity and gratitude using a simple exercise.

Right now, right where you are, break out a blank piece of paper and write down 10 things that you are supremely grateful for.

Let this feeling of gratitude heighten to become a feeling of excitement and become a feeling of elation. Take a few deep breaths and heighten this sensation even more!

Dwelling in this feeling of positivity, we become beacons for this positivity – this prosperity – to become more and more evident and expansive in our lives.

Do this daily for a week and, BOOM! you’ve just made a major shift in the direction of your dreams.

The inner always precedes the outer. Once you align yourself with feeling great, then you can become great. Just by being yourself.

Bring on the greatness!

Stress Release Tip

Instead of beating yourself up about how far you’ve left to go on that big project, praise yourself for how far you’ve come. Even if you’ve just begun, this is a victory! And if you are still thinking about beginning, go for it today. Feel the fear and apprehension, and step through it. Then celebrate! Joy and stress can not coexist.

Mindful Moment

Getting into the attitude of gratitude is easy. Staying in that feeling isn’t always so easy. When you get to that level 10, overflowing space, feel the energy flowing through you – literally coursing through your veins – and keep it going for as long as you can. Then, just rest and notice how you feel. There’s a shimmering sensation, an aliveness that you can just hang out in.
