Discover a simple way to lighten the concerns that weigh you down.
This next summer’s take-a-break is a quick one you can do in less than five minutes (maybe even less than one). It is called “Float Your Worries Away” and was suggested several years ago by Kirsten Harrell, who has one-minute affirmations at iPopIn, with the motto of “Change your mind . . . change your thoughts . . . one minute at a time.”
I strongly suggest you stop what you are doing right now and close your eyes. Well, okay, you’re right. Read the take-a-break and then close your eyes and do what it suggests.
Breathe deeply and imagine placing all of your stress and worries in a balloon. Make sure that all of the stress and worry energy goes into the balloon. Then imagine sending this balloon up to the Universe where that energy will be transformed.
Any time this summer, in fact, any time when you are feeling stressed, do this simple activity in order to relax and be rejuvenated.
Just as using the word “soften” helps you find relief from the pain of loss, if you take a few minutes a couple of times a day to do this, you will find that you are more productive and creative. Also, you will likely work more effectively and efficiently, making the small time commitment well worth it.
When you do it, notice how much lighter you feel after you’ve opened your eyes. I believe you will be ready to concentrate again — or maybe you will have decided your work wasn’t that essential after all and you will continue letting your worries and work float away. After all, this is summer.
