Living With Joy!
Life today is quite fast paced and challenging. The roles we play are loaded with expectations. We start the week looking forward to the weekend, and the weekend vanishes with chores and commitments often leaving us feeling drained and exhausted all of the time!
If this sounds familiar, it maybe time for a simple shift that will allow you to infuse your days and experiences with joy and happiness instead of stress and rush!
I will share with you 3 simple tools that can help you raise your energy and feel more alive every single day!
- Gratitude – Studies show that practicing gratitude can raise your energy and happiness levels. You can start writing a Gratitude Journal and every single day list down 5 new things that you are grateful for- example “I am grateful for my job, my children, my body… ” Keep the list going and allow your senses to feel grateful for every moment!
- Mindful Breathing Break – A great exercise to STOP and take a break, irrespective of what you are doing. Setup 3 alarms across the day for the next 21 days. Every time it rings- take a 2 minute break to do a few rounds of deep breathing to center and recharge yourself; you will notice that your enthusiasm and performance will enhance!
- Meditate – The greatest gift you can give yourself is the practice of meditation. Start with a 5minute meditation everyday or join a group meditation like we offer at Illuminations in JLT; group meditations have a beautiful energy that will keep you recharged and peaceful at the same time!
