If COVID-19 has you down in the dumps (or anything else you’re afraid of) this message is for you. We’re here to help you with some feel-better-fast tips and tricks to help you get through the rough patches and to help you get your brain in a much more peace-full place.
There are 4 main things for you to remember when navigating fear. And 6 things you can easily do right-here-right-now, to help yourself feel better fast.
Be sure to listen to the “Sweet Relief Hypnosis” Jack recorded for you, to help you relax your body and mind, calm your fears and worries, and to focus on the good and the power inside of you.
How can you accept yourself when you don’t know how?
Now let’s be clear, this episode isn’t about self-esteem. It’s about self-acceptance… which means you’re accepting the good AND the “bad.”
The best news of all is that there really is no such thing as “bad.” Self-acceptance is unconditional. It means we can recognize our weaknesses or limitations without it interfering with our ability to fully accept ourselves.
There’s no reason at all why you can’t decide to accept yourself, because we’re here to help you do it!
As Tiff and I were driving home from working out at the gym, we decided on today’s topic.
Life for us these days is filled to the brim so we have to be extra mindful to find balance between all of the work and also having some time to relax and rejuvenate.
When you listen to the podcast it’s like the 3 of us (you, me and Tiff) are living our lives together. The things we share are part of the day-to-day experience we’re having. It’s awesome having you here with us.
Because life is whacky busy for us right now, we’re talking about slowing down and balancing the work out with some light-hearted fun. Which if we don’t do that, we very well could end up losing it!
Here’s a quick bird’s-eye-view of how to slow down a bit so that you can enjoy today (and not just wait until you’ve finished the proverbial “race to the finish line,” thinking THEN you’ll finally be able to slow down… if you don’t figure out how to find some balance today, chances are tomorrow, may not happen 🤭):
Identify your own personal brand of “rat race.” (First you must know where you’re at, in order to be, do or have, something different.)
Realize that FEAR could be the driver, pushing you to work longer and harder without taking some R&R. And this fear, is coming from the past OR the future (neither of which are happening now).
Focus on the NOW. Get present with this very moment. How are you feeling (name it)? And then focus on what you’re grateful for (one of the fastest ways to change your “state” instantly).
Make a plan and decide ahead of time what it is you want for yourself today.
Change things up a bit. Use a different toothpaste. Drive a different way to work. Any time you do something new, it gets you in the present moment quickly and also opens your brain up to new thoughts bigger possibilities.
And here’s a great little daily exercise I learned from Gabby Bernstein. Answer these 4 questions each day:
What do I want today?
How do I want to feel today?
What do I want to give today?
What do I want to receive today?
Thanks for listening to our show. And we do hope it’s making a positive difference in your day.
When you allow yourself an indulgence, do feel like you’re doing something “wrong?”
Withholding pleasure creates obsession for the very thing you’re stopping yourself from enjoying. Bam! There it is. We just gave you permission to enjoy yourself.
Your daily challenge: Do 1 thing each day that gives you pleasure. And if anyone gives you hard time tell them that “Tiff & Jack” challenged you, and you always RISE to the occasion, and then invite them to complete the daily pleasure challenge as well.
It’s that simple. Pleasure is powerful and brings more and more pleasure-filled experiences into your life. Like attracts like.
Have you wondered what to do when you’re feeling like a hot mess? Today’s episode reveals the ONE thing you can do to feel better fast. We aren’t here telling you that you shouldn’t be a hot mess. What we’re saying is to “wrap those arms of yours around your hot messy-ness and notice what happens next.”
