“When you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change”. Wayne Dyer
Do you ever experience perpetual fatigue? A lethargic and heavy sense that simply zaps the light out of you ? I have and I expect others have too.
We humans love to think we are in absolute control and when things don’t go our way we can’t understand why.
Being a coach means I have learnt to check in and observe me. Like everyone I too have a to do list and sometimes I sit down at the end of the day and wonder when did I feel joy during the day? What were the stress triggers and when did I let myself down? Now, the last question is the big one. How many times you start the day with good intentions of..
Today, I will speak less and listen more.
Today, I will exercise and hydrate more than usual.
Today, I will stay in the calm and positive frame of mind.
Then an email arrives and it throws us of course. How is it that we allow ourselves to lose focus on our good intentions just by an email sent by someone who hardly know us?
When we feel perpetual fatigue there might be a medical explanation and I’m no medical expert and do take medical advice. However, can it sometimes be that by making some subtle changes in our habits and thinking patterns we can influence how we feel and may be, just may be, that can impact on our sense of worth and wellbeing or the very least on how we take care of ourselves? A question worth asking ourselves.
The re set switch is accessible to us all we just have to use it.
I will leave you with a few tips of how I use the reset switch when I need to flip things around.
1. Focus on what I want rather than what I don’t want.
2. Plan ahead so that I have a strategy to deal with stress triggers.
3. If I can’t change something write things down and let it be.
4. Tell myself I am proud of me.
A few basic steps can often change the pace. A pattern of thinking and behaviour can also contribute to the sense of fatigue and heaviness but while we can’t control events and people we can use the re set switch to gain back confidence in ourselves.
Enjoy your day and be proud of you.
