A list of things you enjoy

If you are feeling in need of a lift and a distraction from your routine then simply make a list of the 10 things you enjoy doing the most.

Once you’ve completed the list, sit back, look over it and put the list in a draw and carry on doing what you were doing…No, joking. Simply choose something on the list and do it

Next step – repeat.

Then, keep repeating as often as possible until you mainly do things that you enjoy.

A weather vane blowing in the wind

If we fall into the habit of allowing ‘news’ whether good or bad to affect our mood up or down, then external factors, that are always beyond our control, start to rule our mood. We lose control and simply become like a weather vane blowing in the wind.

If we concentrate on our energy within, our very soul and essence, and accept always things as they are ‘good’ or ‘bad’, which are just subjective labels of our mind and conditioning, then we will find life unfolds more peacefully.

We can not always be happy but we can be at peace with that feeling without the need to label and judge everything all the time.
