Each day there are little things that we can do quickly, in-the-moment, to make the next moment a little better and brighter. I call them Power Ups and over the next few weeks, I’ll share some of these tips, practices, and ideas, here.
Some I write about in Imperfect Spirituality: Extraordinary Enlightenment for Ordinary People, others are new, things I’ve recently tried or learned. Tips, usually backed by research, that I use to keep me moving and positive and engaged even when I feel like whining or crying and complaining. Hope you find value in them too.
We become braver, more courageous when we practice by first doing the lower-risk little things that make us a bit uncomfortable.
Each of us possess some degree of courage and research indicates that you can actually build more. One way to do it is to continually take on tasks that feel a little scary or uncomfortable. Trust me, this gets easier with practice.
Today, do something you’ve never done before. Share an opinion when you would otherwise stay quiet, apply for the job you’ve always wanted, leave some unscheduled time to see what comes up, meditate. Do the thing you’ve always wanted to do, but have been to afraid to try.
