Admit it, you’re stressed and sometimes feel overwhelmed to the point where it seems as though there is no end to all the busyness.  Time is such a precious commodity and also highly coveted when you discover there isn’t enough of it within the day to accomplish what you want to do.  Tell me, when was the last time you did something to inspire you and make you feel good? If you’re like most professionals it’s been longer than you can remember. Redirecting your focus toward your well-being is an important step in helping you to relax, have fun, and feel increased inner peace. When you do, you “get in the zone of life”, which inspires confidence and brings balance so everything within work and home flows better. Doing what you love makes every part of your life better and can greatly impact how you experience your world. Don’t wait weeks and months to pass by. Now is the time to take action! You only need to redirect your attention to receive the maximum benefits. 

How you create a balance between your personal obligations and work demands makes the difference in how quickly you get in the zone of life and begin doing more of what you love to do. Striking a balance between the two will allow you to start doing what you love to do NOW instead of later and also add an abundance of tranquility and inner peace within your life. Start the process by acknowledging there is work to be done and decide you will schedule time in your day solely dedicated to those things that bring you joy. Schedule some “me time”. You deserve fun in your life. You can choose to experience these times of dedicated joy alone, with family, or with friends. What matters most is you spend the time. Your brain needs to decompress and to get away from it all too; and there is nothing better than a juicy chapter in a book, listening to music, a short or long vacation, or starting the day in meditation watching the sunrise to renew your spirit and well-being.

Carving out time is one area you will need to plan to really get in the zone of life. You also want to learn how to be in the now so you can fully enjoy the experience instead of think of those things causing you stress. This can be more than challenging especially if you are in the habit of being “on” all the time or you put a lot of pressure on yourself.  I know this feeling well and the challenge for me was in quieting my brain enough so I could fully enjoy my “me” time. I found myself time and again getting caught up in the moment and feeling fearful wondering what someone might be saying and or even judging myself on what I was doing (or not doing) at the time. I wasn’t in the zone of life. What worked for me was practice and meditation.  I made it a priority to schedule the time to focus training my mind to silence those thoughts so I could learn to enjoy more what was right in front of me. This has made a world of difference. I’m less stressed and have a better handle on those feelings of overwhelm. (I’m not perfect, I do have times where I slip up). What I realized was I didn’t know how to fully embrace my “me” time experience before moving on to something else. Those feelings of peace and tranquility alluded me until I learned the importance to celebrate my successes each step of the way. It’s OK to put yourself first and to meet your get in the zone of life goal.  Pat yourself on your back and enjoy your moment of greatness in what you have created. You’re worth it!

Another barrier to getting into the zone of life is focused misdirection. In the past, I would create large lists of all the things I had to do. Large never ending lists on various pieces of paper (all of which was overwhelming in itself), scratchpads, or within notebooks. I found I would focus on these various lists and the many minute details within each task. These unfinished lists turned into me resisting action because I kept telling myself I can’t’, I’m afraid, and/or it’s not good enough. As a result, I turned to food when feeling stressed and fearful. I was so overwhelmed by what I had to do I was unable to create the positive momentum needed in order to even start. I was sabotaging myself over and over again to the point it would take months to take a small step forward on projects I really wanted to do. I would worry about the future and focus on what could go wrong. I would get angry at myself and then find myself frustrated. Totally not a good place to be! Don’t do like I did. There was no benefit to these choices.  Decide now you will focus on your most important item first. Breathe deeply and re-center if you find yourself falling back into old habits. Learn to embrace the process by not focusing on the end result but by focusing on the one specific task at hand. Step into your fear a little bit at a time and you will be able to take on later. Remember to focus more on what you want, instead of what you don’t want.  I had to learn worry won’t make things happen faster or make things better. Use your time redirecting your focus by visualizing the positives that will come from you moving through your fear and stepping forward toward completion. When you let go of the fear, relax your mind, and learn to trust yourself and others, you will get in your zone and become a believer in all you can do. This alone can have a major impact in your life. It’s something you will need to work on and I’ve put together some additional ideas to help you when you are not in balance and allow you to get into the zone so you can live life to the fullest.

 11 Easy Ways How You Quickly Get in the Zone of Life

  1. Don’t sweat the small stuff. Many times, what is bothering you isn’t really very important and work itself out within a few days.
  2. Relax instead of worry. Be grateful for what you have, and make choices to do what you love to do.
  3. Take better care of you. Get to know yourself better giving you more confidence in your professional and personal life.
  4. Write down your favorite way to spend the day, and then schedule an appointment with yourself on your calendar. For example: Have a spa day, or buy yourself a gift you have wanted for a long time and haven’t given yourself the permission to buy.
  5. Shift your mindset to a more positive one. If you are feeling a little down, grab your pen and paper. Create a list of 10 things to make you smile. Choose one and do it.
  6. Soothe your soul with something you love, gives you a big pick me up, and a burst of energy.
  7. Do the kindest thing you can do for yourself if you are sad, or maybe in pain whether it’s physical or emotional.  My favorite thing is to begin each day with soft spiritual music, and finish my week with a clean desk at work, and have a 2-hour massage.  
  8. Don’t ever give up on your dreams or goals. Believe miracles happen each and every day.
  9. Be positive and enthusiastic.  Don’t complain, instead smile and be the one who brightens up a room when you are around others.
  10. Be brave. Go out of your comfort zone.  Keep it simple. You can do anything you set your mind to. 
  11. Make it a habit each day of doing one act of kindness for other people. You can change their life. They will feel good and you will too.

After you’ve started the process you may find you are at a point where you are not making progress in getting into the zone of life. If this does happen then I urge you to keep pushing forward and to refocus your attention on the feelings of success you’ve experienced in the past. You may not see it but you have made progress in making creating a shift in your life. Keep in mind it takes the time to change habits you have developed over a lifetime and may not have been in your best interest because you are now shifting the tides within an ocean has only brought you stress and overwhelm. Decide today you deserve fewer struggles, more enjoyment in life, and to feel real inner peace. Don’t allow your schedule to be so full you aren’t putting you and your well-being first. Stop worrying about the future and what might happen. Avoid focusing on your fear and focus on getting into the zone of life! I have learned from experience stepping into the fear and allowing yourself to feel it creates inner growth faster than if you simply do nothing. It takes practice and patience with you to break the cycle and by deciding to “do it (as my coach says) will put action behind the fear and push it out of the way. Once you take action, you will get better and better at it and in time your fear dissipates. By digging deep for your inner courage, you will discover it will become second nature to you and with each new challenge you will be stronger and better equipped. Overcome your initial feelings of fear by asking for help and turning to someone who supports you such as a friend, an accountability partner, or an experienced coach. When you take action, you will be amazed at how you good feel. 

You have a choice every day on how you will handle and the attitude you will embrace for what shows up in your life. Decide today to look for what you can learn and choose to only focus on what is positive. Don’t get caught up in frustration, anger, or lose focus on those negative thoughts coming into your mind. It’s a waste of valuable time and good energy. Train yourself to stop for a moment, take a long deep breath, and refocus your attention on what you want. Get into the zone of life by knowing what is important to you and put yourself in the mix by carving out time for doing what you love to do. Making this adjustment in your life will create more wealth and well-being so you can live a lifestyle filled with the happiness, inner peace, and all the freedom you want and desire.

Survivor – Eye Of The Tiger lyrics
Risin’ up, back on the street
Did my time, took my chances
Went the distance
Now I’m back on my feet
Just a man and his will to survive

So many times, it happens too fast
You trade your passion for glory
Don’t lose your grip on the dreams of the past
You must fight just to keep them alive

[Chorus]
It’s the eye of the tiger
It’s the thrill of the fight
Risin’ up to the challenge
Of our rival
And the last known survivor
Stalks his prey in the night
And he’s watching us all with the
Eye of the tiger

Face to face, out in the heat
Hangin’ tough, stayin’ hungry
They stack the odds
Still we take to the street
For the kill with the skill to survive

[Chorus]

Risin’ up straight to the top
Had the guts, got the glory
Went the distance
Now I’m not gonna stop
Just a man and his will to survive

[Chorus]

The eye of the tiger
The eye of the tiger
The eye of the tiger
The eye of the tiger

To complete this How-To you will need:

  • A journal, notebook, or paper
  • Foods high in tryptophan
  • Orange juice
  • Soothing essential oils

Step 1: Write it out

Write down exactly what you’re afraid of and why. Research shows that putting your fears in writing can be empowering, giving you more confidence and helping you realize that some things you’re worried about are plain ridiculous.

 Step 2: Have a mantra

 Pick an encouraging mantra like ‘“I can handle this” or “Nothing can harm me,” and repeat it in your head whenever you have to do something that scares you. Psychologists say this instills courage.

Step 3: Make a fist

 The next time you have to do something scary, make a fist, hold it for 10 seconds, then release. Sounds silly, but this reduces fear by relaxing muscle tension.

Step 4: Eat more turkey

Eat more turkey, cheese, and nuts. They all contain tryptophan, an amino acid that helps people feel less anxious.

Tip: Drink a big glass of orange juice before you have to face any fear. Vitamin C lowers stress hormones in as little as 15 minutes!

Step 5: Use soothing oils

Use soothing essential oils. Available in health food stores, they have been used to battle stage fright, face frightening medical procedures, and deal with trauma. According to the directions, put a few drops on your wrist or under your tongue until you feel calmer.

Step 6: Face your fear

Face your fear—again and again and again. Research shows that repeatedly confronting your fear can suppress your fright response. In fact, experts say up to 90% of phobic’s can overcome a specific fear with this technique, known as “exposure therapy.”

Step 7: Ask your doctor

Ask your doctor about medications that have shown promise in reducing fear when a person is faced with the scary situation.

This song, BECAUSE of YOU by Kelly Clarkson has to be one of my all time favorites. The words are so moving and if you allow it, can help you to feel stronger than you ever have before. Stop, Listen, and Feel the emotion when she sings the song. The words are so touching, so full of emotion. I’ve gained hope and encouragement by playing it at times when I needed a bit of inspiration. It helped me to remember that emotions are neither good or bad, they just are! No matter what others say you cannot allow fear to keep you from accepting them and allowing them move through you.  When you allow them to be instead of holding them down or ignoring them you are making a healthy choice for yourself and your emotions. Learn today to express how you feel, and put your heart into what you do each and every moment. If you do, you will discover that giving 100% helps you to and be the best you can be! This can only happen if you are true to your feelings, wants and desires. You must learn to embrace them because when you do your true self will shine through. Create an excellent week! ~Bonnie

As you’ve probably guessed, I like to start the week out with something positive to inspire you to always be your best. It is my goal to assist in the care of your your well-being while writing posts that share in this attitude and which also spreads positive energy. This week I share some thoughts on how to believe in yourself. Believing in yourself is the basis of success and happiness in your life. It is my hope is that you will do your part in making your dreams come true by surrounding yourself with as many positive people as you can. By choosing your environment with care, you will have no choice but find one that lifts you up and gives you wings to soar. Never give up and keep in mind too that it is really ok to ask for help. We all need support from others at one time or another.

As belief in yourself grows from within you must continue to persevere and move forward. Life is too short to stand by waiting for someone else to believe in you and your dreams. So enjoy the life you’ve been given! Be patient with yourself and cultivate that belief in yourself!  If every day was perfect and everything went right, how would you grow as an individual and gain strength from within?  Find your inner strength for it is deep inside of you. Learn to live with disappointments, frustrations; but don’t let people around you weigh you down. You do have a choice and must always move forward. Never give up on yourself while you dreaming those lofty dreams- for as you dream, so shall you become. Believe in yourself in every way possible. You are important and you matter. Never forget that you count and are part of a bigger picture. Do you believe in yourself? Was it a journey or something you always felt deep in your core? Leave your thoughts below and create an excellent week! ~Bonnie

The Holiday Season has arrived and it happens to be my favorite time of the year! The combination of Thanksgiving and the festivities surrounding the season provides a wonderful time to reflect, show gratitude, and appreciate just how great life has been to you. This can also be a season of stress and worry. Many find their emotions are in full gear constantly going up and down with no remedy in sight. Maybe you’ve noticed your own frame of mind is out of balance. Perhaps you’re feeling a little stressed thinking about all the things you need to do. I can bet that you are most likely being pulled in different directions with a laundry list of must do’s, and a schedule that’s bursting at the seams! Don’t worry you’re not alone and before things progress too far let’s look at some solutions that will actively set in motion your intention for you feeling better, being happier and improving your well-being during this holiday season.

12 Simple Ways for Well-Being Instead Of Feeling Stressed

  • Write a list of things to do on paper that come to your mind. Prioritize them by what is most important. Does it really have to be done by you or can the responsibility be delegated to someone else?
  • Create a system for routine tasks that you regularly do that are not working to your satisfaction. If it doesn’t work make some simple tweaks with the system until it does.
  • Do less, not more. Is there something that is not really necessary that I can skip doing but still get what I want done? Choose what aligns with your overall goals
  • Get support. Find a coach or call a trusted friend or family member you can turn to that you trust.
  • Move your body. Create a routine to do, a simple exercise that you think is fun, even if it’s for 5 or ten minutes.
  • Get some fresh air, go for a leisurely walk. This will give you an instant pick me up from what you were presently doing. For those of you who are near a beach, stare at the water and listen to the sounds of waves.
  • Always do your best, look for excellence not expect perfection.
  • Don’t compare yourself to others. Do what is in your heart, Use your experience as a stepping stone to the next great opportunity that lies ahead.
  • Don’t be so hard on yourself. There is no benefit to you to beat yourself up, Worry less and relax more. In the end, the more you learn to relax the more you will actually get done.
  • Schedule a fun night out with your friends. Schedule the time on your calendar.
  • Book a massage. Your body will thank you. For those if you who have had massage before, treat yourself to an additional 30 minutes. (I love my 2 hour massage to relax and have time to myself).
  • Designate a place in a room where you live that you feel safe to stop, listen and take some deep breadths. Feel the quiet, the tranquility and the peace within you. Tranquility is a great state of mind to be in.

Here is a short breathing exercise that is simple and can be done just about anywhere.

  • Sit or lie down
  • Slowly count to five while you breathe in through your nose. Hold your breath for a moment.
  • Count to five again while breathing out slowly through your mouth.
  • Repeat 3 times and feel a shift in you.

Everybody needs a bit of calm, peace, and moments of quiet in order to relax. This can be a challenge in our busy day to day responsibilities but an action that is crucial for your overall well-being. There are so many different ways you can choose to relax, so experiment to find out what works best for you. Try first to undertake one tip, and if it doesn’t work, do another until you find what works for you. Don’t wait for the New Year to make some changes. There is still time in this year to create habits that will help you feel better. Let today be the day you shift your mindset to more positive thoughts. Remember to always be gentle with yourself and gain understanding as you increase your self-care for a richer and happier life.

Happy Holidays!

In living the lifestyle you desire,

~Bonnie
