Time to Re-Energize!

Time to Re-Energize!

You would think that after some time off and at the start of a new year, we’d all be raring and ready to go.  I don’t know about you, but after the holidays and family, I still feel like I’m in a daze.  It’s time to come back and grab the new year by the horns.

Do you want to be re-energized at work and at home?  Don’t wait for someone else to make it happen;  this one’s all on you.

So if you’re feeling at all burned out, tired, stressed, underappreciated, dazed, or all of the above, what can you do to re-charge your batteries?

First, get clear on what you want!

Take a few minutes and answer this question:

In the new year, my big, hairy, audacious goals (BHAG’s) are to:

1.

2.

3.

If your answer is, “I’ll know it when I see it”, think again.  You have to see success before you can begin to achieve it.  And don’t worry if you don’t know how to accomplish these goals.  Most of us hold back until we see how when in reality, that’s not how your brain works.  You won’t see how to do it until you see yourself doing it. Then, your brain works backwards to fill in the gaps.

I have found another way to re-energize is to have things to look forward to.  Whether it’s a massage, date night, or taking some much needed time for yourself, make sure you have little things to look forward to on a regular basis.

Next, incorporate some fun into your day.  Listen to music, tell a few jokes, and find ways to laugh.  This strategy goes without saying, but I see WAY too many people who take themselves way too seriously.  Lighten up!

Finally, take a walk and get a little sun.  I usually take Bernie for a walk each day, but the cruddy weather lately has put a damper on that.  I’ve definitely noticed a drop in my mood and energy.  I’m looking forward to some sunshine!

How else do you re-energize and recharge your batteries?

#ThrowbackThursday to when I got to speak with @malcolmgladwell!!

Thank you to @conferencesforwomen for the opportunity to attend your #WorkplaceSummit today and listen to him address the dramatic changes in the world of work. He said, "As a leader, what may have worked before may not be what works now or in the future. We must adjust our leadership style to the moment we are living in." #futureofwork #mindfulleadership #growthmindset #adapt #grow #malcolmgladwell

When was the last time the sh*t hit your fan?

It's natural when faced with an overwhelming situation to feel defeated, but people who practice resilience learn to see the situation a bit differently. They look at the problem and say:

What is this teaching me?
What can I learn from this?

It might not feel like it at the time, but when you make it through a difficult event, you learn something – it’s called post-traumatic growth. Growth and comfort don’t exist in the same place. Choose growth anyway. #resilience #growth #posttraumaticgrowth #failure #mindset #personaldevelopment #tedx #tedxspeaker

What is optimism?

It has been determined to the greatest predictor of entrepreneurial success. People who practice optimism have deeper social connections and are perceived as more trustworthy and more attractive.

Just like happiness, optimism is a choice. Sometimes hour by hour, sometimes moment by moment. How can you build optimism and increase your optimism set point? #mindfulmonday #mindfulness #optimism #resilience #habits #beliefs #behaviors #mindovermoment

Emotional Intelligence (EI) is the ability to recognize and understand emotions in yourself and others, and to use this awareness to manage your behavior and your relationships.

Your emotions are a powerful barometer of your resilience. Pay attention to how you show up, and how your mood affects those around you. #resilience #mindfulness #mindovermoment #emotionalintelligence #knowyourtriggers #reset #selfawareness

    Man works as a Walmart greeter. Does great job but often late and told about it by boss. Boss asked if he had that problem at last job – yes he did. “What did they say to you?” He replied:

    “Good morning Admiral, would you like some coffee?”
