I love this 'Entering the Zone' thing, and several of the stress management - Tune In Time - exercises.
I've been thinking about you lately because I've been craving to wake-up eager. Lately I've been getting my 8 hours of sleep and things have been good, peaceful, and calm but I've been a little bored which is a first for me.
Anyway, I got coached last week what I can be doing to wake-up excited because I'm working on big things.
As a result of the coaching, I'm in a very creative state right now and the juices are flowing now.
These exercises are helping me feel more creative.
I love the ABC exercise! I got excited at even the thought of the exercise. What a great brain exercise too. It just made me happy that I was thinking and challenging myself :-)
You can do this with anything for brainstorming activities. Let's say you're stuck in some area of your life. If you think of solutions with the ABC exercise, you come up with some really creative ones. You can even start in different places in the alphabet. I've been getting to D and stopping because I want to move on to something else.
I also did the journal prompts with "Wouldn't it be nice if..." and that was really energizing. It got me off my duff! I wanted to start making things happen but at the same time I wanted to continue the exercise. I was torn!
I decided to pause the exercise and continue on my next break. I combined this exercise with the other one by adding "why" to it. I think this is even better for me than the "I want" list because it's disarming. When I say I want something, I feel committed to it and I second guess writing it down.
When I say, wouldn't it be nice if...., I open myself up to all the possibilities of my desires and write everything down. Love it!
Of course I coached myself through the really big desires, identified my obstacles and came up with possible solutions. This is why I wanted to get started on my day and stop the exercise. LOL!
Your website is so packed with resources. I read more of your website and loved it! I think the first time I looked at your website, I was a little overwhelmed that I didn't know where to start.
This time I entered through your newsletter following the link for the 15+ stress management activities.
From there I was able to follow the E.A.G.E.R habits and all the resources that fall under them. It all makes sense now. I'm a little slow sometimes.
Anyway, thank you for the resources and enjoy the day!
