Slow down and Enjoy life

One thing #Covid19 has taught some of us is to #SlowdDown and take stock of our lives. “A dog has four feet, but it doesn’t try to walk down four roads! So slow down and establish a pace that’s sane and sustainable.” UCB Word for today.

I must say at the start of #COVID19 I was very stressed as I am usually a busy bee, combining running my business, working part time as an employee, looking after my sons, managing the home, taking part in various community events and spending time with my elderly parents. I felt frustrated that I was stuck at home with nothing to do.

 

By the second week, I started to ponder about life, and it then occurred to me that this period was also for me to slow down, and reflect on the things I was doing and why I was doing them.

 

I set up new priorities with the aim of firstly to take care of my health and enjoying the time I have with my family. I even joined a walking group and started walking 2 hours every saturday and at least 1 hour every other day during the week. I loved our walks as it connected me with nature, we discovered some amazing places locally and connected with may new friends.

So please take care of you and slow down. Your health is wealth. Your family needs you and someone out their needs your smile and encouragement. 

I use this guided meditation i found on youtube to help me pause and recharge – why not give it a try https://youtu.be/8Xdwr4cRTVA

Celebrate another day being alive

Despite all the uncertainties of life, it is a blessing to wake up and see another day. It is also time to think about those our loved once who are no longer with us, and cherish the memories we shared.

I am at a good stage in my life right now, I don’t have all I want, but I have all I need. I am content and make the most of life as it is, and I hope you too will have the strength and courage to take one day at time.

Here are some of my daily affirmations I say out loud every morning, I have them also printed on my way as a daily reminder. Please take care of you, stay positive and keep smiling.

 

Quick tips for today

  1. Do whatever is necessary to let yourself be happy. Give yourself permission to pursue your own happiness.
  2. Stay connected with friends and family
  3. Express how you feel and don’t bottle up your emotions. 
  4. Stop working too hard at a job that is not fulling – find a way to make the job interesting or plan to leave or have other interesting hobbies that you can focus when you are away from your job.
  5. Be true to yourself and not what others expect of you. Let the haters hate and the doubters doubt.
  6. Share the love, and encourage someone today, give the a reason to smile.
  7. Ask for help and don’t suffer in silence

Decide on the best time of the day that you are are  relaxed. (As for me, I am a morning person)   You then need to find somewhere quiet where you can clear your mind and focus.

Take a deep breath in, and then breathe out a couple of times. Now say say the words below.

Step 3.. What does your Happiness Island look like?

Imagine your own Happiness Island using all your senses –  What is the surrounding like? What are you tasting?  What are you smelling? What are you feeling? .What are you hearing? Who is their with you? What are you doing?   What are you eating?  What songs are you listening to or dancing to?

Imagine your Island has everything that you need right now. Spend some time just enjoying your stay their. If you feel like singing sing, if you feel like dancing dance.  Just do anything that makes you feel good,

. Step 4  Be Grateful and thankful for life

Now, focus your mind on God or whoever you see as your source of help and thank them for the Gift of life and all that you have in life right now.  Say out loud at least 7 things you are grateful and thankful for them.

7 Days Happiness Challenge from Monday 11th July

Over the last few days, I have come accross a lot of people who are feeling very overwhelmed and fed up with their lives.  One lady said to me  recently ” It  starts when you wake up in the morning, put your TV on and all you hear is about bad things happening all over the world, I feel so frigthened at times and don’t even want to leave home at times. I feel so lonely as I live alone, and even though I have a job, I feel alone, sad and depressed in the evening at weekends as  have no one to talk to”

This really touched me, as I have been through similar situation but have now managed to find ways to cope with life and help others to find that inner peace which can then lead to outward happiness and joy!

So join me from Monday and lets try and create happy moments for ourselves and others.

Are you dreading going back to work after the Christmas break?

dreadSo you have had a lovely long break  from work and now you are dreading going back to work?

Well here are some of my suggestions of what you get in the right frame of mine to get back to work and taken with you some of the Christmas happy vibes!

 

Start of by writing  down all the wonderful things you did  and experienced during the time you have had off.

 

  1.  Go to bed thinking how grateful you are to at least have a job and a salary at the end of each month.

 

2.   Wake up in a good mood determined to extend the Christmas spirit of happiness and good vibes to your colleagues,

 

3.  Before you  get to the office,  you could  buy a  box of  chocolates or  biscuits to  share with  your colleagues

chocolates

4.  When you get to the office smile and wish everyone a happy new year

5.  If at any time during the day you start getting that “ I am fed up and hate my job ” feeling, stop, go out for a walk or short break and do the One Minute Smilence – this means thinking or recalling happy experiences you have had whilst smiling for a minute

 

Ilovemyjob

 

I hope you have a wonderful day at work and hope that if you really hate your job, you will try and find ways to be happier at work or look for a job that would make you happier! Remember – The grass is always greener on the other side!
