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?

Anne breaks down the daily habits and skills needed to grow and cultivate RESILIENCE.

#WednesdayWisdom from @mrdavehollis. I'm really excited to check out his new book #BuiltThroughCourage.

The main difference between those who courageously act and those who stay stuck amounts to how we view fear. Courage is not the absence of fear. Courage is being afraid and working through the discomfort. Courage means you allow challenge and adversity to be a catalyst to help you grow strong enough to face whatever life throws at you.

What types of courage come easily for you? Which ones are more difficult? And what blocks you from behaving courageously in the circumstances you face? 💪 #wednesdaywisdom #courage #resilience #fearasfuel #reframefear #mindset #personaldevelopment

YOU GOT THIS.

As research for my book "Mind Over Moment: Harness the Power of Resilience", I spent a lot of time learning what helps develop and maintain resilience and have boiled it down to three main areas: Your mindset, skillset, and your ability to reset.

But just like anything else, knowing what builds resilience isn’t enough. You have to actively practice these skills. In this month's blog, I'm showing you how.

Happiness is a skill.

If you aren’t feeling very happy, satisfied, or content, look for blips of happiness. If you’re feeling angry, frustrated, or overwhelmed, look for blips of relief and realize that this too shall pass. No one is always happy or never happy. Happiness, just like sadness, and just about every other emotion happens in little blips. We get to choose which blips we focus on. #mindfulmonday #mindfulness #reslience #happiness #optimism #deliciousmoments #emotionalgrowth #personaldevelopment #mindset

What if you could break free from reactivity with a reset—a chance once and for all to define the life you want and create a path to get there, all while building resilience along the way? You can.

It’s time to delve into your automatic thought patterns, belief systems and daily habits to identify which ones are serving you. Resilience is built by deliberately cultivating productive beliefs, behaviors, and habits to intentionally break out of reactivity and live purposefully. If you have found yourself stuck in reactivity either before this pandemic or during it, remember to reset, practice #MindOverMoment, and purposefully build the life you deserve. It’s about what you do starting now that matters. #resilience #mindfulness #authorsofinstagram #booklaunchanniversary #breakout #liveonpurpose #habits #personalgrowth #reset #grow

Don’t neglect what brings you joy.

Sometimes it is easier said than done when you’re in the middle of it, but choosing optimism means you are deliberate about the way you interpret the adversity in your life.

Every situation, especially the difficult ones, provides an opportunity to challenge our self-defeating, negative thoughts. And this isn’t just fluff. Scientific research has proven that when you look at life through a lens of positivity, you are more likely to enjoy better mental and physical health. #mindfulmonday #mindfulness #resilience #optimism #choosejoy #protectyourpeace #mindovermoment #mentalhealth #mentalhealthmatters

  1. Tell a few jokes?

    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?”
