WHAT ARE YOU NOT IN THE MOOD FOR?
I woke this morning feeling REALLY LAZY about writing to my email list.
And guilty that I haven't been posting here regularly either.
In my defence, it's been a looooooong couple of weeks. Good things, definitely, but also challenging things to attend to, in all areas of my life... and today I just didn't feel like getting out of bed, let alone getting to work.
I was just not in the mood.
And I just know (because you are a fellow human being) that you sometimes feel this way too.
So here are the 3 things I did that got me from uninspired and resistant, to....'here I am writing to you all and feeling excited again!'
#1 - I tapped
With a short video - Things to do and not in the mood - that I made in 2018 (when I still wore a watch and didn't have a ring light.)
There are 3 things in there that really helped shift my energy.
- Spending time acknowledging how sluggish and resistant I'm feeling - really saying how it is
- Clearing this energy, not just from now, but from all the times in my past when I was made to do something when I wasn't in the mood
- Setting the two-fold intention to get it done and enjoy getting it done
#2 - I set a timer .
For just 12 minutes. Just enough to get me going, but not enough to feel like a horrible expanse of tiresome time.
#3 - I chose a way to celebrate afterwards
I promised myself that I would watch a YouTube video and have a second cup of coffee right after sending the email.
By celebrating afterwards I am not only giving myself some motivation but also a pat on the back for moving through the resistance and getting the job done. Yay!
So what are you not in the mood for? Take these steps:
- Think of something that you need/want to get done today
- Rate your resistance on a scale of 1 to 10
- Tap with the video
- See how you feel at the end...
And let me know!! Comment below.
