Finding Time to Turn Worry into Welcome, Using a Simple Question

Finding time to savor your life can become so much easier as you learn the skill of introducing simple attitude shifts to your day.

Very often, if you feel yourself slipping into a rut of fear, anxiety, or negativity, something as easy as pausing and asking yourself the right question will tickle your mind into exploring a fresh, new approach!  As you practice and get comfortable with this skill, I think you will be amazed at how quickly and significantly you can shift your own perspective.

Here’s a great example: How do you act when an unfamiliar challenge pops up? Do you automatically brace yourself! That’s a very familiar response for many.

But did you know that tensing your body inhibits your creativity, too?

That’s because, just as fear freezes your body, it also calcifies your options. Likewise, anxiety creates a simplistic either/or scarcity mentality – not the best mindset for creative thinking! So you can see how, when fear takes the driver’s seat, you’ll find it harder to prioritize, harder to solve problems and make decisions, and harder to keep to a healthy schedule.

But there’s good news about all this!  You can swiftly overcome this natural tendency with another natural impulse – curiosity!

Curiosity is one of the great antidotes to fear, and provides the perfect climate for learning.  Mobilizing your curiosity also actually changes you for the better! That’s because you stop focusing self-consciously on the you-who-doesn’t-know, and shift into the you-who-is-eager-to-figure-it-out.

Give it a try! Any time you notice yourself apprehensively thinking, “What if … ?” try replacing that with “I wonder what … ?” It feels SO much better!

As you regain your inner balance with this simple question, you will find it much easier to ride the new wave of change with smart time choices.  Try it and see … and let me know how it goes for you … I’d love to hear!

And don’t forget to leave room for curiously exploring your creative soul!
