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.
