BRING ON THE COFFEE!!
At the very last possible minute you drag yourself out of bed, already late as usual because first you snoozed, then you couldn’t prise your eyes open, and now your body feels like it’s weighed down with lead as you pad to the bathroom and gaze into red-rimmed eyes. Stranger’s eyes! NO! That can’t possibly be you in the mirror! OMG! You need a facial, a massage, a week off – no, a year off!
BRING ON THE COFFEE !!
Yep, who hasn’t had those days –and some of us have too many of them. Let’s face it – some of us coast through life only half awake, working, having a social life, managing a home and family, but is that what we really want our life to be? A half-life, dreaming and wishing for more? Isn’t there more you want to shoot for?
Do you envy those mums at school drop off who look sizzling, alive, busy and glowing with – what? Something indefinable – something you wouldn’t mind a bit of!
And some of your workmates – what about them? They work as hard as you do but they always seem to be happy – and you just can’t figure out those crazy ones who actually go for a run at lunch time – where do they get their energy from? Lunch time is when you crash with a sandwich, a ton of chocolate and a coffee and try to recover enough to make it to the end of the afternoon!
So, yes, you need more energy, but where do you find it? Well, it’s out there, all around you and you’re capable of tapping into it, you just need to know how.
Today, when you’re ready to hang out with your coffee, try carrying it outside. Sit on a balcony, terrace, veranda, garden seat, park bench, patch of grass – anywhere that is NOT inside! Just that small break with coffee, fresh air and a little nature around you, will work wonders for your energy.
Make a habit of taking your coffee outside, whenever you can. When you get used to the change you will find yourself looking forward to that small break, with nature all around you. It will be a habit you look forward to, for the small moment of stillness it allows you, a moment when you can just breathe deeply, and relax, before you move on to the next thing on your agenda.
It is through simple steps like this that you will begin to find more energy, more push to get you through the day. Changing old habits can eventually change the way you live your life!
