52 Weeks Of Happiness: Week Four

52 Weeks Of Happiness: Week Four

 

Today I want to share my week four list for the 52 Lists for Happiness: Weekly Journaling Inspiration for Positivity, Balance, and Joy”, by Moorea Seal.

This week is about listing the things that get you out of your head. Getting out of your head is super important for creating peace and space in your life. I want to share with you want I wrote down for this list, it my hope this information inspires you to do more of the things that help you get out of your head. It’s from this space, where you can create magic in your life and business.

The things that get me out of my head are:

  • Massages
  • Bubble baths
  • Meditating
  • Being by water or at the beach. When I am by bodies of water I am calm, I see the beauty of the world and I feel like a child and a giant at the same time. Spending time like this really helps me connect to my soul.
  • Lighting candles
  • Lighting incense
  • Journaling
  • Petting my dog, Roxie
  • The calming effect of my cat, Carmine who recently passed. I’m blessed to have had him in my life. I wrote an article about what I learned from Carmine. You can read that here.
  • Prayer
  • Tapping
  • Story telling – When I go from head to heart, I connect emotionally.

I want to invite you to list the things that get you out of your head.

My Challenge To You!

I challenge you to take 30 to 60 minutes this week and do one or more of the things that are on your list. The goal is to get you out of your head and into your heart. I promise you’ll experience greater peace.   When you are in your heart you are able to get guidance, inspiration and live a more stress-less life overall. I really encourage you to practice this and have more balance in your life.

I invite you to join me for a free 5 Day Leadership Legacy Challenge, starting March 6th! Learn more and register HERE.

    This brings up something I’ve had questions about for a while now – tapping. I’ve tried the tapping, with someone else tapping on me. Is that normally how it goes? It was kind of strange. I felt like I was being pumped for information about my innermost thoughts rather than “releasing them to the universe.” Is that how it’s normally done? With someone tapping on you and asking you personal questions?

      LOL, Jennifer. Typically, you tap on yourself with someone guiding you as they tap in the same places themselves. As someone moves through tapping, the facilitator makes related statements to what you are working on and you repeat after them. I’ve never experienced someone tapping on me and asking me questions. It’s always been someone else leading the way and me following. Hope that helps. Let me know if you have any other questions.

    I’m all for getting out of your head. However, I find I have to make a concerted effort at times. Or, at other times, it just slows down to the point that not much is coming out. I’ve been meaning to get at massage, so I going to make that my commitment.

      Hi Lorii, I’ve experienced greater peace, better sleep, emotional release and more. I’ve known people to get healthier and manifest more money, too.

    This is a great list of ideas to connect with the heart again. I do love many of yours but my main one is getting into Red Rock country..Sedona. I feel completely in tune the moment the red rocks come into view

      Alene, great minds think alike. I absolutely love Red Rock country in Sedona, too! It’s magical… the minute I see these views, I immediately relax and feel peaceful.

    Beautiful list for yourself, Tandy! For myself, I find walking, creating art, writing and playing with our animals can get me out of my head. Going for acupuncture and also for my weekly therapeutic massage also helps me get more in my body and out of my head. Sometimes I don’t easily get out of my head, but like you, it really helps to have some things that we know will work to bring us back to our soul and to find our way to listen in to what our intuition and inner voice are telling us.

      Beverley, playing with my animals is a great one for me too. Creating art is something I’ve done a few times and you helped me remember that I do like that. It definitely helps me get out of my head. I, too, like massage and think it’s a great way to get out of our heads.

      Love this, Kristen! I’ve never been on a motorcycle but think I would enjoy it. MUSIC, on the other hand, is amazeballs. It’s truly a universal language and I find listening to music a great way to get into your heart.

    Yes!!! I’m in! I’ve had a Zen practice for 20+ years and of course it is all about getting out of heads where ole monkey mind lives — and getting into our hearts, where Life can inform us. I love your list of things that get you out of your head! Meditation, dance, yoga, and sex are my favorites! 🙂

    You are right—It is so important for us to get out of our heads Tandy. We are in charge and we don’t have to think about things that we don’t want to think about. It takes some practice and I do most of the things you listed to get out of that negative space. When I gift myself with one of those things, I can react to situations different (and I often find that I am overreacting).

      Self-care truly is a gift, isn’t it Rachel? You raise a great point about the relaxation about things we tend to worry about. When we are in this ‘zen space’, we can see things more clearly.

    ” When you are in your heart you are able to get guidance, inspiration and live a more stress-less life overall” – love this and find it so true. Yes, we need to get out of our heads sometimes to really experience this.

    Tandy,
    A great challenge and yes 30-60 minutes is great when I can get time during the weekend . I agree with this and usually take some time alone from everyone to recenter and meditate. It’s so important to have time alone and self care is a big part of my Sunday. I tend to work a lot because of the business just starting out and all the other responsibilities.

      Oh my… I think many can relate to working a lot when you own your own business, Lori. I’m glad you take time for YOU. Otherwise, long term, you’ll experience burnout and we certainly don’t want that!

      Books… my favorite thing – lol. The challenge I have is I tend to read leadership, business, self help, spirituality type books rather than truly ‘fun’ genres to get me out of my head. Reading does help slow me down though.
