Wow. It's been a long time since my last blog! Guess I've been having fun! Mark and I spent some glorious time on Martha's Vineyard with our Hitchhiking with Larry David author friend Paul Dolman, and then spent more time with family and nature on the Cape after that. "Happy, thank you, more please!" Hope you're finding ways to have fun, as well. There's always a way, no matter what.
Now it's time to get back to my other passion, supporting you towards experiencing greater harmony, happiness and success; and I intend to do so while maintaining my vacation frame of mind!
The key thing is, those natural repair mechanisms only work when your body is in the relaxation response. That's what activates the healing response.
So it's really, really important to reduce your number of stress responses, and to increase your relaxation responses. How do you do that?
Lucky for you, this is what we teach in all of our New Possibilities private and group coaching programs! Obviously I can't teach you all of them in detail in this one blog; so I'll mention just a few key ones to get you started.
New Possibilities for YOU!
Making sure you have empowering beliefs versus ones that limit you or make you feel bad is key to living with a relaxed joy and ease. If you know you have self-defeating beliefs, don't just accept them. Find a way to shift them. This is just as important as using medical interventions.
You also want to manage how you interpret situations and the meaning you attach to them. If what you're thinking doesn't feel good (hence triggers the stress response), then challenge your thinking. Is it true, or just your personal interpretation? What other interpretation is possible that would feel better? How might someone else think about it?
EFT, the Emotional Freedom Technique, is a great way to manage your moods and emotional responses, and to trigger your body's relaxation response . By tapping on energy meridian points on your body, even without any dialogue, you will feel more relaxed. It's very easy, and I highly recommend learning and using it. I'm sure you can find some free tutorials on YouTube.
While you're there, if you have something going on that needs to heal, ask your inner guidance, "What does my body need to heal?" Some thought might come to you like, "find a way to work feeling less pressure" or "love and accept myself", or "take more time for yourself". You get the idea. You have your very own inner "doctor", per se, your inner wisdom. Listen, and honor it. It's your own prescription towards healing and health.
That's all for now. But, as you know, I am always here for you. If you'd like to learn more and get more personal attention, guidance and support to live with more ease and joy, then e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule a complimentary happiness upgrade activation call to begin creating new possibilities for YOU. There's no need to struggle. Let your happiness and well-being be a priority, and from that all other good things you desire will flow to you.
Supporting you in greater ease and joy, with a warm heart,
