Do you ever feel tired and lack lustre without knowing what to do about it?
Have you stopped to ask yourself what might be sapping your energy and vitality?
Listen to my audio blog and learn a simple and effective way of countering your everyday fatigue by tapping into your inner strength and finding your inner friend.
Here's what you CAN take from this audio blog:
We have busy lives, worrying about money, jobs, our families… If you dig a little deeper you’ll uncover one of the greatest and most hidden causes of fatigue: our inner critic. That constant nagging voice which wears us down – you’re not beautiful enough, not clever enough; sometimes this voice is indignant – who do you think you are?
We have 40,000 thoughts per day and 70% of those are negative. It’s time to get a grip on this negative habit. Let’s not waste anymore of our precious indulging in this destructive habit.
Let’s change that negative default setting.
So ask yourself – whose voice is that inner critic? Perhaps it’s a younger you, a parent or teacher.
Now stop to uncover the voice of someone who has encouraged you, or find the voice of your own kindness and generosity that you offer to other people.
When the negative inner critic tries to take hold, draw up your inner friend or inner coach – What would my encouraging inner mentor say now, how would she make me feel? Tap into that internal strength that is in each and everyone of us.
All it takes is 10 – 15 seconds and you will notice a change internally and you’ll start to feel better.
Practicing conjuring your inner mentor little and often will start to crack that negative armour and let in the light of positive thinking. Your energy will change, motivation will return, sleep will improve.
Let’s all get back in touch with our vital energy and positive inner coach.
