You’re just ten seconds away from a more positive, relaxed, supremely fabulous you! No matter what challenges life throws at you—from relationship roadblocks to everyday stressors to unexpected forks in your life’s path—Karen Salmansohn is here to give you a few stylishly designed “thought interventions” to teach your old brain some new tricks.
1. “When life starts feeling a bit too serious, find someone you can giggle with!”
Laughter is contagious. When someone shares a good laugh with you, they are not only spreading joy, but lowering blood pressure, boosting the immune system, improving brain functioning, lowering the risk of heart disease, and reducing depression, anger, anxiety, and stress. A healthy sense of humor during hard times is especially beneficial for all these physical healthful benefits, as well as the psyche benefits as well.
2. “Don’t relive the past. Don’t pre-live the future. Live now fully.”
Your life is a series of moments in the “now.” The better you make your “now,” the better your entire life. When you focus on fears, you put “ow” in your “now.” When you relax and focus on faith, you put “wow” in your “now!”
3. “Don’t let a bad day make you feel like you have had a bad life.”
Even the worst day has happy moments in it. Look for them. Appreciate them. And remember – even if today is lousy, it doesn’t mean tomorrow’s not going to be the most awesome day of your life.
4. “Go on a ‘no nuts’ diet. Avoid people who drive you nuts.”
View challenging people as your assignment – and make your tormentors your mentors. Ask yourself: “What is this person meant to teach me?” Every person in our lives has a lesson teach. Some of these lessons could include becoming stronger, communicating better, learning to trust your intuition, discovering how to be more self-loving, and learning when to let go!
5. “Spoiler Alert: It will all work out for you in the end.”
Every day is a new day to re-write your life. You have the power to say: This is not how my story ends. You have the power to rewrite your destiny.
