Modern life can be a bit hectic with so much going on.
2020s special features have been a tough test of fun. It wasn’t like 2019 was exactly easy. So ‘fun’ may seem frivolous at times like these goes out the window. It’s hard to maintain a balance between work and home life.
It’s understandable. When do you get time to think?… ‘Rat race’ certainly seems apt…
If you think there’s no choice but to work harder, longer hours even when you’re feeling low, I’d suggest you might try another way. Here’s a quick tip that you can try right now.
Appreciate what you have.
So, you might not feel so good right now but what can you appreciate?
What does that actually mean?
1. Take about 2 minutes and sit in silence to think about what you appreciate.
Examples might be your favourite food, your health, your loved ones – just let your mind keep moving onto each next positive thing.
2. Take 5 minutes to write down a list of all the things that you just thought.
I’ll set you a target of at least 30. 🙂
3. Take another 5 minutes to slowly read over what you have just written.
Control your breathing with a 5 in, 5 our breath. As you finish reading the list, close your eyes and continue to breathe in the same rhythm until 5 minutes concludes (You might like to use a timer if you have lots to do)
This 12 minute break will lift your mood. Even one positive thought opens up your mind. It redirects your thoughts from the negativity.
Then you can build on it. Good Company, the more the better.
