You just gotta shake it.

I remember years ago I did the Tony Robbins personal power program. 30 days to a new life. It’s a lot of common sense stuff.

One of the things that I remember is the idea of shifting yourself when you are tired, down or sad.

If you just do the simple action of getting up, going for a walk, have a little stretch, making a call to a friend that you know is upbeat, writing in a journal, making your bed, starting a new book or making a cup of tea. These very, very simple actions can change your entire mood and direction.

I always have said “I believe you can change your life in an instant.” This really is true and it does work.

I was feeling down yesterday, we all feel down and that’s ok. It’s important to look at why your down. Is it something you’re avoiding, something you don’t want to deal with, is it winter blues or are you just riding the bitter bus? Sometimes it’s a BIG thing and sometimes it’s just you need some fresh air and sunshine, a long strong hug or a good healthy meal!

Whatever it is don’t avoid it, embrace it and make a simple 1% action step to change. The journey of a 1000 miles begins with a single step!

I have to make a tea and you just need to START!

Happy New Year!

    I love this post!  It is very true. Shifting yourself is so important!  It usually is the smallest act of looking after yourself (like reading a book, going for a walk, engaging in an uplifting conversation) that changes your mood in an instant!
