You are not really depressed, but you don’t feel happy either. You know you are off your game and have lost your mojo – AND you don’t know how to get it back. Then it is time to assess where you are at.
So take out a piece of paper and have a look. What is really going on? Look at the headings below and record what is going on for you.
Physical i.e. headaches, tense, sore muscles, tired, poor digestion, constant illness, hormones out of balance.
Emotional i.e. sad, restless, uneasy, angry, frustrated.
Mental i.e. blank, confused, lots of stories going around and around, overwhelmed.
Impacting events i.e. changes in work, a book you have been reading, a tv series or movie that stirs you up, the loss of a friend, a stressful situation, people you mix with.
Diet i.e. how much alcohol and drugs are you taking, is it a healthy diet, are you eating often enough.
Sleep i.e. are you staying up late, not getting enough, exhausted all the time, do you feel refreshed from sleep.
And there is your list. When you look at where you are at, no wonder you feel the way you do!
So did you know that people who face up to their stuff are the most courageous people around? And you have just taken your first step in changing what is going on for you.
Just from doing this exercise you probably KNOW at least three things you could do to help yourself. Write them down on a piece of paper where you can see them first thing in the morning and do them. It is a very good start.
You probably also have some inkling of what you do want. For example:
· I want to be loved
· I want to be fit
· I want to be full of energy
So take these wants and turn them into affirmations – I AM statements:
· I am fit and healthy
· I am energised
· I am loved, loveable and loving
Put them on a piece of paper and say them 80 times a day (10 times every time you go to the loo will work).
Do this exercise once a week and you will see your life change.
