March 2017 Newsletter
Hello, and a magnificent March to you!
Welcome, or welcome back, to my newsletter. The photo above shows me
before the start of a recent energy workshop, leaning forward, eager
to get underway. What activity which is a regular part of your
life excites you most?
Today's issue has an article about changing unwanted habits,
which may be easier than you think.
Do you want to change that habit?
Almost everyone I know has something they're doing
regularly which, if they're honest, they would prefer
was different. This could be
losing their temper and snapping at their family, or
eating more than is good for them, or oversleeping and
being late for work several days a week. Yet as much as
we wish and hope and make resolutions, the pattern doesn't
seem to change.
First, I'd ask if there's a payoff to this habit you say
you'd like to release. Maybe you can't stand your mind-numbing
job, and are late so often because you really don't want to be
there at all! So the real problem is not your lateness. It's
that you're putting up with an employment situation where
you're miserable. If you can find another job more suited to you,
you'll be excited to go to work, probably showing up early!
So once you identify a habit which you do want to change, start
small. It's fine to want to begin an exercise program. However if
you've been sedentary for years, just doing a little bit, say walking
half a mile after dinner every day, will be a lot for you. Establish
that until it becomes routine and almost feels too easy, and
only then increase it. Otherwise you'll either get injured or get
overwhelmed because you're trying to do too much, and you'll quit.
Something else which will help establish a new habit is being
gentle with yourself if you "fall off the wagon". The saying
"You'll catch more flies with honey than with vinegar" applies
here. And you know children respond better to praise than to
criticism. So treat yourself in that loving way too. Compliment yourself
whenever you notice you're doing the new habit. Good for you!
You're making a positive change in your life!
Finally, have fun with it. Think of a baby learning to walk,
the big adventure allowing him or her to explore the world, or
at least the living room. After a step or two, BOOM! Down on the
well-padded diapered butt. And the baby laughs! This is not a
disaster at all, it's kind of a game. Can I take more steps next time?
Treat your new habit like this too. You are growing and learning
just like the child is. Appreciate your wonderful self!
