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.

When you experience big changes in your life, it’s tempting to want things to go back to “normal”.  Your big change could involve your personal life, your health, your career, and/or your business. But what if your normal is a “new normal”. Your new normal could be even better than your old normal and include changes that prevent you from ever going back to your old normal. Some things that we experience in life change us so profoundly that there is no going back. And that’s a good thing. After I got so sick in the summer of 2015 and came so close to death, people asked my son, Nick, “How is your mom doing?” His answer was, “She is better than normal.” I changed profoundly from going over to the other side and coming back into my body. If I had set my eyes on returning to my old “normal” after this major life event, it wouldn’t work.

So how can you create normalcy after dramatic changes in your life? I have 7 steps to help you find your new sense of normal and stability.

  1. Discover how to feel much better.
    How you feel is related to the way you think about life. If you decide that you want to feel better, you set yourself on a path to feel better.
  1. Begin writing in a daily journal.
    Journal Prompt: What would it take right now to make me feel better? Then, ask, “How can I get there?”
  1. Open the doorway to experience complete healing.
    Allow the idea to form that you can heal completely from your experience. You don’t have to see yourself as “damaged goods”. I know that when I lost my brother at a young age, I thought that I would be damaged forever. When I first began to allow the possibility that I could be happy and feel joy, I experienced a turning point and headed back to a feeling of wholeness. When my heart failed last summer, I was frustrated thinking that I had a “bad heart”. I knew on a soul level, my heart was good and pure… and it felt terrible to think otherwise. When I started appreciating my heart for supporting me to this point in life, my attitude change. I was thanking my heart every day for its hard work. Eventually, my heart responded to this appreciation and I experienced a spontaneous healing.
  1. Greatly improve the quality of your life right now.
    Work on your bucket list now Why wait? If you want to improve your golf game, do it now. If you want to see more concerts, do it now. If you want to spend more time with people you love, do it now.
  1. Create peace of mind.
    Let go of needing to fight against something. Create acceptance and that is the beginning of positive change. When you accept what is going on and get calm, you have a positive starting point for change. Peace of mind enables clear thought and options that you may not see when you are in a frenzy or fury over something you perceive as unfair. Rather than think about what you are against, think about what you are for.
  1. Create focused thinking.
    It’s difficult to have focused thinking when you have a lot going on. Thoughts get scattered and cloudy. Focus your mind with deep breathing exercises and journal exercises. Reduce noise, so you can clearly see options and weigh decisions. Journal Prompts: What are my goals? What help do I need? What do I need to learn?  What action steps do I want to take?
  1. Take charge of a full-on blitz for your mind, body, and spirit.
    When you care for your mind, body, and spirit; you create a holistic approach for creating your “new normal”.  Cultivate thoughts that work for you. Take care of your body combining the best of modern medicine and alternative approaches that make sense for you and move your body in a way that is fun and inspiring. Meditate and pray on a daily basis to stay connected to your spirituality.

When you practice these 7 steps, you will find your “new normal”.  You may be surprised to see that you are better than ever, living a purposeful and fulfilling life no matter what is going on around you.

My best friend is the one who brings out the best in me.
~Henry Ford

Who comes to your mind when you think of the word friend? Some of you know many people, as far back to childhood, high school or have college buddies that are friends and keep up with them using social media. You’ve probably noticed using the internet just how easy it is to meet and make new friends and build relationships you may have not done so otherwise. Yes, technology has worked its way into our personal relationships, but do we really know what it means to be a friend?

Dictionary.com defines the word friend as

A person attached to another by feelings of affection or personal regard 

a person who gives assistance; patron; supporter

How many friends can you speak with openly, who are good listeners, and are there for you? These are the people who don’t get mad over nonsense and would never judge you. We’re not talking about those who do and then decide not be your friend anymore. Life is too short for that. We’re shining light on those who you can be yourself with no matter what, and agree to disagree. A true friend is someone who believes in you and you share feelings of mutual closeness with an uncanny amount of rapport and trust that only grows with time, nonstop understanding, and a trust between one another.
 
It’s not necessary to talk to them all the time and you may only keep in touch periodically. It could be a week, month or even a year later, but when you do reconnect it’s as if you had never stopped talking.  You have a special bond, a feeling inside that radiates positive energy, peace, excitement, joy, and love. True friends are one of life’s wonderful blessings. They are exceptionally rare, sacred, and a treasure to have.
 

Did you know that you already have a trusted friend who will never let you down?  One you can trust completely, one who will always keep your most precious secrets secret, and one who is literally on call 24-7. That’s pretty amazing, right?  Realize who your best friend really is.

 

You Are Your Own Best Friend.

Yes, Powerful YOU!

 

When you appreciate this friendship with yourself, you will be able to have the fullness in experiences with all of your “other” friends. This is because you have learned to find joy and contentment within yourself.  When you love and make friends with yourself, you find that you are not as demanding of others and feel disappointed by them. This is because you are meeting your own needs and not looking outside yourself for others to fill that void. You will realize you have everything you would ever want. You will discover that it is all within you.  By acknowledging your positive qualities, strengths, and shortcomings is how  to truly appreciate yourself.  Love yourself and become your own best friend.  Allow and accept yourself for who you are and realize that you are perfect (flaws and all) exactly the way you are.

Let today be the day you make a commitment to you by becoming your own best friend.  Be gentle with yourself. Show yourself grace and kindness because you really do matter.  Set aside quality time for you.

  • take a daily walk, start with 5 minutes
  • journal, even if it’s one sentence
  • clear your mind, by listening to music that relaxes you

It’s your choice, however something that you don’t already do now and it’s something that you really enjoy.

What could you do  now that will  enhance your friendship with you? Don’t worry about the past, or the future.  Enjoy the moment, let life flow by, becoming the friend who never lets you down.

It’s my pleasure to share a poem  being my own best friend.

 

Move Forward Today

Life goes by fast 

Don’t worry about the past 

Tranquility is close by 

Be still and listen for your why 

Take time for you now 

With patience you will find how

 Move forward with what you love each day

 Going within is the way 

As your mind wanders about 

Trust you can heal your doubt 

Sadness comes and goes 

Smile, buy yourself a beautiful rose

 When tears roll down your face 

Stop and give yourself some space 

Fear making a change and feel alone 

Today step out of your comfort zone 

The bigger the change, the bigger the test 

All is well, do your best 

Make a commitment to you. 

Something different each day new 

Happiness is your birthright 

Believe you are the shining light!

Will you be in the same place as you are five years from now? Are you happy and enjoying your life? Focus on what you desire as if it is yours now. Visualize your success and have positive thoughts.

Experiencing challenges teaches you many invaluable lessons.   The number of times you succeed is in direct proportion to the number of times you fail and keep trying. Don’t give up.  Doubts and fears might pop up however they are temporary obstacles.

Be persistent. Focus on one step at a time to reach your goal. You will have a great feeling when you successfully meet the challenge. All great achievements require time, endurance, and a push to get through to move towards your goals.

Surround yourself with others who support you and are positive and avoid the people who give off negative energy or put you down. Openly share your talents with others.

You don’t need to know all your answers in advance.  Have a clear idea of the goal you desire to reach. Take one step at a time and be patient with yourself. Once you muster up the courage to begin, you’ll find the courage to succeed.  If you can believe it you can achieve it.

Share your own formula for creative success.

Life can be so hectic. There are plenty of surprises, both good and not so good which always occur when you least expect them. My coaches have taught me that you always have a choice. Remember to choose happiness. This can be challenging sometimes; however, you need to find a way from within to calm & sooth yourself. If you are down take some time for yourself. Do something you enjoy. You can always watch an inspiring music filled video where you can dance or listen to the music. Experience how your body feels as you are uplifted & encouraged by the sounds moving through your body. Smile, breathe in and out and feel the rhythm within you. Become free.

This is one way I choose to reconnect recharge myself. This video I’m sharing with you today is one of my favorites from Marcome, who is a Canadian singer songwriter and musician. She does a mixture of pop, world music mixed with new age, jazz, and ambient voices. Marcome is a beautiful, kind, and compassionate woman, who I met on Twitter. (@Marcome)

Do you ever let your mind wander, sit, be still, and clear your thoughts? I’ve gained great pleasure sharing her beautiful videos with you. The music combined with the images are both outstanding! So relaxing by allowing you to relax and let go. Encourage yourself at every turn. You are important and YOU matter! ~Bonnie

True happiness involves the full use of one’s power and talents.
John W. Gardner

Have you ever noticed how some days are super busy and other days are quiet and peaceful? If you’re like me those peaceful days can sometimes be few and far between! It can be tough to balance everything and still keep your sanity, especially when it comes to work. Do you have projects that are incomplete and play over and over in your mind leaving you to the point where you feel a little anxious, uncertain and maybe even frustrated to the point of giving up? Wouldn’t it be great if you were relaxed, full of energy and could always feel confident in overcoming what frustrates you? This may sound difficult to attain but you can overcome such roadblocks by remembering why you even started your project in the first place and then replaying over and over in your mind the excitement you felt before all the obstacles came your way. What if I told you that calm, peace and happiness could be yours within those super busy days too? With just a tweak or two to your mindset and in the actions you take you really can have the life you’ve always dreamed of. You just have to be willing do the work that will point you in the right direction.Bonnie Peace

With a little awareness and practice you can change your thoughts by using the power of intention to free yourself from the negativity that is distracting you from the life you desire. When we focus more on the positives, all the negative thoughts and emotions tend to slowly drift away to a state of calm and peace. When you nourish your mind with good thoughts and positive things on a daily basis you can quiet the negative voices you hear in your mind.  This can be achieved by taking action when you notice a negative thought creep in and by changing the thought to a positive one. Doing so will be the start of miraculous changes that will reduce stress, add more peace in your life and surround you with an abundance of happiness going forward.

When you think about your life what is the one thing that makes you feel apprehensive or is holding you back? Are you harboring a past event that still upsets you and figure that this is just how it is? Can you, for a moment, imagine yourself with reduced stress, increased confidence, and living a life of calm instead of a flood of regret or worry? A recent study confirmed that over 95% of what we worry about doesn’t even happen. Think of all the wasted time and attention. What about all the time you spend afraid or ashamed over things you no longer have control over? This is why it’s so important that you learn from these lessons and begin creating good habits and routines that focus on the positives and in what makes life pleasurable. Commit to doing so, and you will receive results that will improve and enhance your overall well-being.

It may not always feel like it but all that you desire is within your reach and you have the power to do what you’ve never imagined possible. You can accomplish your dreams by keeping the ball rolling forward instead of focusing on your past. You will not find answers by turning to food every time uncomfortable emotions kick in or by drowning yourself in work when things get difficult at home. Neither approach will provide the answers you need. A much better choice is to start from within by being gentler with yourself. Yes, it’s a process and it won’t happen overnight. You will have to take small simple steps to change your behavior. It really is a choice to remain positive, and with consistency you can get to a place of feeling peace in your heart, body, and soul. Staying in the positive is worth the effort since nothing beats the pure joy you will create and the benefits you will encounter from a richer more fulfilling life.

Keep in mind that all habits can be changed when you embrace, experience, and enjoy the journey. Once you make new positive habits part of a daily routine they become automatic and ingrained in everything that you do. They begin to feel very natural and soon feel like second nature. You must decide now that you want to create change in your life. Your happiness is important and is an integral part in you successfully doing what you passionately want to do in your life. These simple tips I’m sharing with you can move you closer to happiness by reducing the stress you may be experiencing and by giving you peace like you’ve never had before.

12 Tips To Reducing Stress, More Peace, and Happiness

  • Find your passion. Do what you love to do. Have a big vision with your individual goals that you choose and gives you a feeling of safety. You are a creative being and let your creativity shine.
  • Do less, not more. Focus on the important tasks, and get rid of the rest. You will get more accomplished, your frustration level will be reduced and you have more time for things that give you joy.
  • Choose only what aligns with your overall goals. Remove one item today that you do frequently that is not getting the results you desire,
  • Simplify your finances. Live life on your terms not somebody else’s. Pay cash when you can, reduce debt by paying off high interest credit cards, and spend within your means.
  • Create simple systems. Create well-organized simple systems for your everyday routines, anything you do over and over. Examples: Have a fixed place for your spare keys, bills, and mail.
  • Set goals for 3 months, 6 months and a year. Choose a goal to start working on in the short term that will move you towards your longer-term goal.
  • Focus on one task at a time. Give up multi-tasking. This will ultimately make you more productive and will reduce stress.
  • Take action, even the small action is better than procrastinating and doing nothing. Do your very best. Don’t wait until everything is perfect. Feel the fear, and do it anyway!
  • Give up wanting to being right. Look for a way to understand the other person’s position, to see it from their point of view.
  • Respond instead of react. Control your impulses and raise your awareness to your surroundings. If someone says or does something to you that you don’t like, say and do nothing but consider if what they’ve said has merit. Then count to 10 before you respond. If you don’t have something nice to say, don’t!
  • Be compassionate and be thoughtful of how others feel. Think about what the other person might be going through. Don’t judge them. Remember there are two sides to every story, sometimes even more.
  • Get support. Be held accountable. Find a coach or partner who will support you to on your journey in life.

ocean of loveEveryone needs happiness, a bit of calm, and moments of quiet especially with our busy day to day responsibilities.

The only way to live the life you desire is to take action now. Make the choice today to improve your well-being and enjoy life with more peace and even more happiness than you ever imagined. The power is within you!

Congratulations to Shannon Barnard!

Thank you everyone for participating in my series, 7 Days to More Wealth and Well-Being.

Stop the Struggle of Stress and Learn to Be Happy

Listen here to the audio version of the article.

Are you allowing stress or frustration to take over your life? Do you experience emotions that make your mind wander to a point where you feel like your head will explode because of all the mindless chatter? I know we’ve all had these feelings from time to time, and it’s even hard to imagine during these times that you can ever feel better; but know these feelings do pass and you will get to a point where you are in more control of your life and will also feel equipped to change the situation you are in. The trick is to not to concentrate so much on what is ahead of you that you miss out on what brings joy now. Once you understand the ebb and flow of life then you are in a better position to understand fully that YOU are good enough, strong enough, rich enough and smart enough to handle any situation that comes your way.Stop The Struggle of Stress and Learn to Be Happy

Do you think about the future and what you want to accomplish? When you do, does fear and anxiety show up? Do decisions seem to arrive slower because negative thoughts or false stories seem to get the best of you? With practice you can be more mindful, more conscious, and more aware when negativity shows up. Mindfulness is the acceptance of what is. Believe me that it is OK to dream, and you must if you are to ever reach beyond your current circumstances. What I’m sharing with you is the idea that you must learn to pay attention to your thoughts and feelings without judging whether they are right or wrong. You must learn to give yourself a bit of grace and kind consideration for being the beautiful, strong, and intelligent person you are. You must remind yourself each day that you are important and your feelings matter. When you use your energy to build yourself up during the good times then you are that much stronger to handle life when the not so good times arrive.

A great place to start making change is to never ignore your feelings or give your power away to any negative thoughts that may swirl through your head. Learn how to feel them and not fight them. Let them go deep within you and face them head on. It’s when we ignore or try to push feelings down when they do their most damage. By acknowledging your feelings you are able to learn the lessons that may move you to achieve your dreams and aspirations. When you allow them to run their course, you will find that your personal well-being will be better and life will have more meaning and purpose. In other words, you will be happier. No matter how difficult it may become you must keep pushing forward and find what you are passionate about in your life. Once you do then you will be even closer to leaving stress behind and becoming the happy person you deserve to be. A negative mindset will get you nowhere fast. Begin by shifting your focus on what you desire when you have those negative thoughts popping into the mind and with enough practice you will see changes that will allow your true destiny to unfold.

One way to grow in mindfulness is to practice creating mental toughness. You do this by first creating a plan of what you want to accomplish within a certain amount of time. Instead of being focused on what you are stressed about take a moment to gather your thoughts, take a deep breath, and start to think about what makes you feel like a success. Map out a plan that includes simple steps toward the goals you desire. Focus on one thing at a time when your mind races and then quickly follow up with an action step that will give you the confidence to enjoy more tranquility and peace in your life. There is choice in everything that you do. Make a solid decision, become mindful, and never let stress rule you because you only give your power away when you do. Always remember that you have the power and are in control. You must use everything within your very being to shift negative thoughts into positive ones. It’s important that you take ownership by being patient with yourself. You must never give up. You can do anything you set your mind to.

  • Become the master of your thoughts. Ask is it really true or are you making up a story?
