Ever lie awake at night remembering what you didn’t get done?
Maybe you believe you’re living in neutral and unable to kick into first gear. Does is make you feel any better to know that our brains have been driving our negative and anxious behaviour for over two hundred thousand years?
I can’t imagine someone saying they don’t want to be happier.
But, let’s face it. A lot of us are already busy with to do lists that extend beyond the hours in the day. So, let’s be realistic about this. Even if we want to be happier, we might not feel we have the time to dedicate to something new.. The good news is you’ve come to the right place because I’m going to show you how to RE-WIRE your brain to offset the ‘negativity-bias’ inherent in all of us; AND, become increasingly HAPPIER without having to change your routine.
It’s easy to confuse Mindfulness with meditation or vice versa. The reason for this lies in the many definitions for both “activities” as well as the way both practices often intersect. Here is a clear explanation for you.
I bet you have no idea the extent to which your body is sending you signals about how you’re feeling. Sure, we all recognize the signals when they are so extreme they send us to bed or the doctor, but what about all the early warning signals that were there for us if we only took moments here and there over the course of our day to check in with our bodies?
I was frustrated with mindfulness. I wanted the benefits to enjoy a happier, healthier life, but couldn't find the time or the discipline so I researched proven strategies for success so that my time was well spent. I'm sharing these with you here. Today you’ll learn some behavioural tips--what you can do on a day to day basis and what you can put in place to amp up your success rate. (In part 1 you learned that even with a busy day you can incorporate mindful moments into your routine. In part 2 you learned about a mindset for success.)
