Little Acts and Big Shifts

Cooking a meal — There’s fast food and there’s slow food. One satisfies a craving and the other satisfies the soul. As long as your phone isn’t nearby, you just might find some peace chopping vegetables and you may even enter a rhythm of being that’s quite serene and wonderfully human.

Smiling at strangers — Try this out for size. We’re not so strange after a gratuitous acknowledgment of the other’s presence.

Writing, stamping, and mailing a handwritten note — Over 3,000 times today  you were sold something. How many times today were you told something in handwritten ink on paper? I rest my case.

Look and SEE — There’s looking and then there’s seeing. I don’t think we see if we’re not looking. Try out a game of ‘I Spy’ in your life, relationships, and business.

Be Silent and Still for two to ten minutes — Try out Headspace for 10 days. When you learn to see and hear the noise you’ll find how to navigate around it and through it. When’s the last time you simply sat still? This will shift things for you.
