Fostering Flow: Part 2 of 3

We pick up where we left off in the previous blog post.  How have you been doing in your quest for Flow — that effort-less, stress-less, joy-filled existence based in Who you are Being NOT What you are Doing?

Here are four more tools to take you further on your Journey to Wholeness by boosting your ability to minimize stress and foster Flow:

6: Talk To Yourself – It’s the smartest crazy thing you’ll ever do.  It improves your sense of perspective, creativity and humor.  You might discover that what you were dreading may actually be a great opportunity.

7: Write It Down – Getting stressful thoughts out of your head and onto paper can also improve your sense of perspective.  Often, just putting them in writing reduces them to a more manageable size you can begin to get your arms around.

8: Move It – When in doubt, move about.  A gentle walk around the office or the block will begin releasing natural tranquilizers and restoring full breathing.  And it feeds your creativity so you’ll be able to come up with more creative options for handling your situation.

9: Hydrate – Water fosters flow.  Drink.  Shower.  Bathe.  Swim.  Play.  Cry.  Hydrate yourself in every way imaginable and watch yourself flow through the ups and downs of life with greater flexibility, creativity and perspective.

About djwlifecoach

As a retired board-certified coach, author and Reiki master teacher, I continue to share hope, possibilities and empowerment with the world. What's love got to do with minimizing stress and getting unstuck? Everything! My book, "Choose Your Energy: Change Your Life!" (Hay House/Balboa Press 2013) shares my story and the stories of 10 of my clients along with my signature Discovery Framework. During my 30 years as an organization transformation consultant, I served as a senior partner in four of the world's largest, most prestigious global professional services firms. In 2005, I took a five-year sabbatical to find healing and peace because non-stop work had taken its toll. My recovery from burnout, including a sustained 80-pound weight loss and freedom from 10 years of debilitating depression, led to finding my purpose sharing hope, possibilities and empowerment with the world. Through healing and self-exploration, I discovered that loving yourself unconditionally is the key to transforming your personal life, your work and the world. With attention and intention, I learned to live in alignment with love through a wealth of energy-shifting tools and techniques that help me reduce stress, anxiety and overwhelm by releasing limiting beliefs, emotions and habits. My books, blog and radio episodes help individuals and organizations harness the transformative energy of love to turn unexplored possibilities into fulfilling realities and step into their greatness.

I live in Williamsburg, Virginia with my husband, Wilson, and the coaching cats who manage my life—SiddhaLee and Maisy Jane.
