A Choice Instead of a Chore

Today we wrap up the Top Ten Tension Tackling Tunes to Keep You Humming Through the Holidays.  I hope you’ve enjoyed listening to these tips this week.

Recording these certainly stretched me beyond my comfort zone.  With writing I can always edit.  With Vocaroo I got one shot to get it right. Clearly, that didn’t happen, but it was fun trying!

Yesterday I heard this fascinating tip on happiness from Shawn Achor.  He said “Joy is what we feel when we’re moving toward our potential.”

In that respect, this was the best way I knew how to spread a little joy to the world.  Next up, I’ll try video.

  1. Silent Night…

Take some time out to get quiet and tune in to the gifts of the season. From the sound of carolers outside your window to the squeals of small children on Santa’s lap to the brightly colored lights decorating the streets where you live, notice the abundance of beauty that surrounds you.

10. Joy to the World…

In the end, it all comes down to attitude. This season examine your beliefs regarding what you “should” do, “must” do or “have to” do. Now consider altering your perception of these things by “choosing to” do them instead. You may decide some of the things are simply not worth the energy it takes to accomplish them. When life becomes a choice instead of a chore, the world looks a lot brighterand you have more energy to spread that joy around!

Wishing you the Merriest and Healthiest of Holidays!

    You are an inspiration and a blessing! I have heard many speak and put their voices in pen but very few have as much enthusiasm and heart felt sincerity as what I feel when I listen to you. Moving.
