What Are You Doing To Change It?

* Are you in the middle of, or contemplating, a significant shift in your circumstances?

* Do you have increasing anxiety about your future?

* Are you bummed out about growing older?

And most of all

* Are you satisfied/experiencing fulfillment with your life?

If you feel that little lump of fear rise within you as you consider the above questions, DO Not Nurture It! You can find peace:

* Sit quietly, or go for a walk. If you sit, you may close your eyes or gently gaze at something neutral. If you are walking, let your eyes move at random about, not focussing on any particular sight.

* Breathe slowly and deeply. Move your abdomen out, then your chest, on the inhale. Relax those areas on  the exhale.

* Now it is time for you to embrace and ponder these words: “Help me to see this differently.”

* Continue the above attitude of mindfulness for about fifteen minutes. Then let yourself feel grateful for this short break.

As you go about the rest of your day, notice any thoughts that come to mind about whatever was bothering you. Is there a difference? Can you begin to form an Action Plan from these thoughts?  What are you going to do to CHANGE IT?
