6 Ways To Shift Those Monday Blues!

sea lion with text

We have the power to shift what kind of a day we are going to have on a dime (or a cent!!)!   It’s about our attitude and how we decide to approach the day in the midst of whatever curveballs life has thrown at us.   And of course no it isn’t always easy .. here are a few quick tips to help!

M  … Motivation .. even if you feel like no muscle in your body will work today .. not even the one in your brain – fake it!!   You know what they say – fake it ’till you make it!!

Becoming aligned to the vibration of motivation will change what otherwise may turn out to be a non productive day to a highly charged motiviated one!  Go on give it a try!

O .. On yer bike!   Or any other type of exercise will do!   Exercise gets the body going, gets everything pumped up and we can feel like tackling anything after an exercise session.   Or if you end up feeling worn out – remember keep motivated and start over!

N … Nothing ventured nothing gained.   Go on and just do it!  If there is something on your to-do list that gets brought forward day after day, do it first today .. you never know what will come out of it!

D … Day Dream.   Day dreaming is allowed even for grown ups, dont mind anyone who tells you otherwise!!!

Day dreaming about our goals allows the imagination soar, limitless and boundless without the ego telling us we can’t, we shouldn’t or who do we think we are!    Write down your day dreams and dream big without limits!

A … Affirm.   Affirm what you want from your day.   I choose to be happy today, I choose to relax today, I choose to get out of my comfort zone and take on the dragon of fear!  Whatever you affirm believe you can .. and then you will!

Try adding some EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) to your affirmations and watch those blocks resolve!

Y .. Yawn.   Yea, yea I know but yawning is good for us.  Pop into a coffee shop and start yawning and see how many peole you affect!!!   Yes it’s contagious but a good yawn plus a stretch lets us lengthen our body and take in more air.

In fact it is taught in medical schools that we yawn because oxygen levels in our lungs are low.  So when you start a yawning crisis in your local coffee shop you are doing them all a favour!

Happy Monday and as always .. keep the faith,

You Don’t Have To Do It All

What is doing it all anyway?  Whose made the rules?   You.

It is not selfish to sometimes say “No”.  When we feel bogged down with thinking we have to do it all we don’t act from a loving state.   Remember there is only one of you, you have a light to shine and don’t allow that light to dim.   When we extend an act of kindness to someone we shine our light for sure, for this is a loving gesture accompanied by positive energy.   Positive energy makes our energy flow smoothly, we feel and act in a positive way.

The reverse of this of course is stress feeling like we have to or we should do.   If there is one word in the English language that I could eliminate it would be “should”, it carries negative vibes, it says we did something wrong, it gets our energy body all charged up “I should have done better”, “I should have …” imagine saying instead “I could have done better, maybe next time I will” .. about a thousand times more positive don’t you think?  Even saying the words makes you take a deep breath and breath out the negative …

Sometimes we feel like to have to do it all because no one else can do it right  … up to your perfect standard .. what un-necessary pressure!  The old saying of “People treat you how you treat yourself” is so right.   I see it with my own kids.   Children pick up at an earlier stage their social skills from their parents, their teachers, whomever they are around.  If a child grows up in a nurturing home with parents who look after themselves as well as them they grow up with a sense of respect for themselves as well.

Unfortunately if you allow yourself to be a doormat you WILL get walked upon.   Because once again … it’s what your sending out there.   Be strong with your desires, your needs and your time.   Do what you can and politely say “No” to the rest.    People will respect you for it .. and that’s a fact.

Until next time …. keep the faith,
