Remembering to stop and be still – to connect and scan – is hard.
The trouble is, we’re so busy going about our day that stopping, if only for a few seconds, seems like a disruption.
However, doing just that – stopping for just a second – is one of the most powerful things we can do because it gives us a chance to reset, zoom out and get perspective.
So next time we:
– Sip a cup of coffee
– Wait at a red light
– Open a new browser tab
– Wait for a website to finish logging in
– Join the line at the checkout
– Sit down at our desk
… take just a few seconds to follow the Feel Better Project process.
We can use these triggers to scan ourselves to see how we’re feeling.
Accept the feeling that we notice; feel it with non-judgmental awareness.
Then see if there’s anything we can think or do to feel just a little bit better.
It’s as simple as that.
