If you wake up in the morning and check your email or facebook right away, how about you eat breakfast first? Or go for a 5 minute walk? Or meditate?
If you come home after work and hit the couch, with one hand snuggled around the remote control, how about you read a chapter of a book instead? Or listen to some music .. stretch .. play with your kids?
Freshen up your life and get unstuck by making one small change a day.
Whether it`s taking a new route to work, stopping by a store you normally would not, buying flowers or calling a friend, doing something different everyday ups the creativity factor and can lead to new opportunities, ideas, experiences and insights.
I recently joined a 29 gifts in 29 days initiative and have been focusing on giving a gift everyday (monetary as well as gifts of time, love, appreciation etc). We all give in some way or the other and to be so mindful of it and look for opportunities to give every day has been expanding the scope of my giving and that of others involved.
Even as I`m focused on giving and getting nothing in return, thinking about what to give each day, sharing it with friends on twitter and carrying out the act of giving is bringing me much more joy and really opening my mind to the possibilities of how I can create my daily life experiences!
And of course, somehow, strangely (wink wink), I`m getting more than I`m giving. If I give $50, I get back 10 times the amount. If I give my time and love, I get it back tenfold.
Unasked for, yet not unexpected if you think about how a particular energy attracts more of the same. Sweet little bonus!
Even if it`s something as `small` as starting the day with a smile and an intention rather than complaining, making a decision to think twice before reacting, affirming to yourself that you`re awesome, doing something differently is a GREAT way to create new patterns and opportunities in your life.
And doing it consciously for ONE day might just be the catalyst you need for change to happen in an area of your life where you could be struggling or could do with some mojo-ing.
It`s the little things that create big changes.
So, what are you doing differently today?
ps: Here`s a video I want to share with you (Cami, founder of 29gifts.org on how it changed her life)
