Even despite our best efforts, there are times when we are just not feeling ourselves. We can be more irritable than usual, unmotivated, impatient, negative and feel like we are walking through a thick fog.
This happened to me a number of times over the past two weeks while I was on holidays enjoying time with my family. My overall routines (such as sleep, eating, mindfulness and exercise) were way off and this effected me more than I thought. However, there were a number of things that helped me get back to normal (or at less close to normal) again. I call these my RESET buttons. And, the good news is that we can all follow this simple 5 step process to RESET and get back to our better selves again.
In this short solo round, I’ll share with you these 5 steps and help you identify your own RESET buttons.
Here is the RESET process:
be aware that something is different and that you are aren’t at your best
Explore where it came from
what does it feel like, where did it come from, where do you feel it
Sit with it with a sense of acceptance
allow it to be there for a little while and knowing that it too will pass
Engage in a positive activity
know the different activities that will work at different times and for different feelings and moods, and engage in one now.
Take committed action
how can you move forward with greater positivity and ownership over your state, behaviour and outcomes.
Challenge for this week: find your RESET buttons and find opportunities to use them.
