In today’s face paced society we are always on the go. So many people desire peace, happiness, and a sense of fulfillment in their lives, but they don’t know how to get it or what to do to keep it when they do experience it in brief snippets between board meetings, baseball games, dinner parties, and dance recitals.
People often say to me “But, I don’t have time… isn’t there a short cut?”
The best way to get into the alignment of all the things you want (like peace, happiness, a sense of fulfillment, a great romantic relationship, more money, and the list goes on…) is to do things that put you in a ‘feeling good’ space. If taking a walk feels good to you, take a walk. If cooking is fun and brings you joy then cook your favorite meals… amp up the ‘good feels’ by creating a playlist of your favorite tunes and dance around the kitchen merrily as you make your family’s favorite recipes.
If driving with the top down or windows open is your go to for clearing your mind then take the long way home. Try to inject fun into as many spots in your day so that when you look back on your day it is seasoned with various sorts of ‘feeling good’ memories.
Make feeling good a priority, so much so that when you notice a circumstance or thought that arises that makes you dip out of your high vibration, you quickly do your next fun activity to raise you back up!
My teacher and mentor, Gabrielle Bernstein, says that “The Universe works fast when you’re having fun.” So try to fill your day with moments of fun, laughter, joy, and things that you love.
I created a guided meditation that is available for free on my website (www.valwhite.com) and it is a perfect tool to introduce this type of mindset shift into your daily life.
This week try to have as much fun as possible, and see how other ‘problems’ in your life seem to start work themselves out.
