It is the small things in life that counts and make a difference. Do you ever stop and look at the sky? Today where I am, it’s beautiful. Light blue with grey and white clouds with purple and pink hints. The sun is slowly rising. It’s fascinating how the sun rises and sets at such different times (yes I know earth being round? and all that…or?) but the difference it makes to the hours of daylight you get. There are some parts in northern Sweden where citizens get 4 hours of twilight and 20 hours of darkness. The last two years now, our lives have been living in darker times. It makes a difference. We try to lighten and brighten up the darkness with more lights and candles, and to eat better and include different type of vitamins. Regular exercise also helps to combat the darkness. Some people are not impacted at all, some are. I’ve also realised how important it is to stay positive. And if you been following my posts, you know it’s not at all easy at times… but that’s when we need our thoughts and willpower more, to steer our minds to happier thinking. Of course, many outside events beyond our control can hinder us from doing so. But our minds are more powerful than that. I’ve just started reading a book about the power of exercise Brain Power. I admit, I am one of those who plan and start… and then stop or don’t remain as focused or committed as I want and what I know would be good for me… so hoping that this book will convince me to take up my running again and focus on my exercise more. Of course that is what makes sense. To ensure your body moves?! So I am not giving up on being good to myself; eat better, exercise more, read more, less social media, more happy thoughts, less focus on the negative… right? I… think I actually do… recommend! Be good to yourself…
Life sometimes is not easy… 2020 was going to be a great year, but so far it has not been good on many levels… the gratitude continues and also the realisation of switching from negative to positive thoughts. It helps… we create energy and it’s far easier to face challenges with a “can do” attitude… not at all easy all the time, not at all… but you can and do make a difference- don’t forget that… to family, friends and colleagues- always!!! Start smiling today- I so… recommend!!!
Have an amazing Friday!!!
You can do it- start the day with a positive mind- I so… recommend!!!
There are many posts and articles about resolutions when we enter a new year. Also probably about this time… is when most of us give them up- right around the 13th of January. That’s why I prefer to set attainable weekly goals without pushing or adding additional stress to life as it is.
This week the focus will be on easing in gently into things and to be nicer to myself. To think more happy thoughts and focus on the positive things in life. It’s as much of an effort as letting your thoughts think of what has gone wrong, why didn’t that work out and so on. We all… have a choice in how to direct our thoughts and this week I will actively go to the positive side of things!!!
Vision is blue and white colours and seeing myself sitting on the floor taking deep breathes. Truly from within to breath out the darker negative thoughts and breath in the positive ones.
Goal is to use the App Three Good Things every day and to train the brain to get energy from this. Your brain and your thoughts are such powerful tools and you are the master here!!!
The mantra is below… tell yourself this all week and truly believe it… I so… recommend! Have an amazing week!!!
Struggle, life isn’t really going in the direction you would want… accept it, take deep breathes, focus on the positive, realise what you have achieved!!!
This week’s challenge is to practice gratitude. To switch the brain into positivity. Life is a good thing, it is a gift…
I so… recommend!
