This weekend flew by in a whirlwind of activity and holiday traffic, and fun, fun, fun! Even though I had lots of places to go and things to do, it never once got the least bit stressful. Why? Because I intended it that way.
Lots of times people tell me they need a break from the hustle and bustle of life. But what they really want is to have fun with it instead of feeling stressed out. The good news is you can have the best of both worlds.
Well it’s easy: You Create It
That’s right – you intend to create an environment of peace around you. Start off by getting clear on how that feels to you. For me it means I feel like I have plenty of time to get everything done, I enjoy myself, and things line up perfectly to support my intention. It also means the people around me are having fun too and are helpful and supportive which just makes my own experience even better.
Ok, after you’re clear on how it feels give yourself a few minutes to experience that in the present. Close your eyes, breathe, and feel yourself in that place of calm as you go about your day. Smile as you do this and feel yourself physically relax as you exhale. Doesn’t it feel great!
Staying in that state, tell your inner self to expand that feeling to EVERY situation. Declare that the busier things are the more peaceful you’ll become and that everything will get done effortlessly and with perfect timing. Finish by thanking your your inner being for having your back and bringing this peace into your life, then go about your day knowing that everything is being worked out for you.
If you feel yourself getting a little stressed as you get busy, stop for a moment and remember that peaceful feeing, then remind yourself that the busier you are the more easily things flow and the more peaceful you feel.
After just a few times of doing this you’ll see a definite improvement in the way life flows around you, especially on really busy days. Stress will disappear as you accomplish more in even less time and who knows…maybe people will even start asking how you do it?
