WARNING: These Tips May Cause Miracles!
Tip #1: Focus on What Makes You Feel Good
One simple way to energize your life, create more time, and be more productive is to feel inspired. When you focus on what is joyful, you bring more joy into your life. Take time to engage in your hobbies, read inspiring books, or listen to music that you love. You don’t have to wait for inspiration: find it by focusing on what gets your mojo working, and you’ll energize every area of your life.
Tip #2: Keep It Simple
Have you ever desperately wished you could make change happen overnight? If so, you’re not alone; we’ve all been there. But we must surrender to the fact that real change happens by adding up subtle shifts. Each subtle shift creates a new experience of positive change. When we add up these moments, we create new behavior. It’s important to keep it simple and stay in the day. Let yourself off the hook! Instead of getting overwhelmed by thinking about changing your whole life right now, simply begin paying attention to the moment-to-moment subtle shifts. Trust that the miracle lies within the subtleties.
Tip #3: Just Show Up!
The Kundalini yoga masters taught that ninety percent of the practice was just showing up to class or sitting down to practice yoga. If ninety percent of creating a new habit is just showing up, then we can take the pressure off. If your goal is to work out more, remember that ninety percent of the resolution is to get your butt to the gym! Stop waiting for something major to happen—just show up for change.
