It's easy to get lost in the details of your to-do list. Hours can go by before you realize that your shoulders are tight and your breaths are shallow; you have lost all connection with your inner guidance system. Here are 3 simple things you can do each day to remind yourself that life is about much more than getting things done, and more importantly, to remain connected with your Self.
- Start your day with a cup of your favorite beverage and spend 30 minutes reading an inspiring book or watching an inspiring video.
- Establish limits on how much time you spend at your desk in one sitting. Set a timer if you need to. When it's time for that break you can choose from a menu of options. - Get up and walk around the office. - Get up and take a short walk around the block. - Place a short call to a good friend or loved one. - Close your eyes and meditate for a few minutes - Turn your chair away from your computer, sit back in your chair and read something that you know will bring a smile to your face.
- Schedule a coffee or lunch meeting with someone you really enjoy spending time with once a week. It doesn't matter who that person is, or their role in your life. Enjoyment is associated with a positive feeling whenever you think of the pending "date."
