Sometimes the daily grind can make life feel complacent. It is easy to get stuck in a rut where routine actually becomes exhausting. For me, the day-to-day work...workout...dinner...bubble bath...bed makes my frizzle-frazz factor shoot through the roof. I need more. Everyone knows deep down that there is a happy place (HP). It is up to you to find it.
Where to start?
- What makes you smile?
- Where do you feel at ease?
- How can you rejuvenate?
I challenge you to think of these three simple things and come up with at least one happy place. This needs to become a daily habit. At first, this wonderful HP will almost seem too hard to fit into the day. Between the usual responsibilities and "things that come up" this new addition to the to-do-list may seem a little much.
The rewards will pay off. Take a time out and find that something that will help make you feel whole. This may mean for you - more time with your kids, a good sweaty run outside, cooking, learning something new, visiting a destination you have always dreamed, reading a book, sipping coffee, picking up a good book, sitting on the porch swing, etc. Repeat after me...This is important. Once you start you can't stop. Life will not seem as complacent anymore.
