Intuitively I know that I need to breathe deeply, hum, sing, go for a walk, go to crossfit, do some yoga, have a hug, draw, call a friend and have a laugh – but do I always do something to help myself? Of course not. How good are you at following our intuition?
Maybe this is the wake up call, maybe now’s the time to listen to ourselves more than ever. No more hesitation, just do what you need to do to help yourself. That’s it – don’t feel good! Yes James Brown, let me sing it – “I feel good d’ne ne ne ne ne ne!” Sometimes we need to fake it to make it – in other words I might not feel like singing but the act of singing makes me feel good. Who’d have believed it? When I force myself to follow my intuition, it makes me feel better.
What makes you feel good? Whatever it is, remember NOT to do it!

I saw a deer today

Don’t Stay Calm!
We’re good at NOT doing what we’re told. The media has reached fever pitch so at times, I do feel panic levels rising in me and have to consciously suppress it. Intuitively I know that I need to breathe deeply, hum, sing, go for a walk, go to crossfit, do some yoga, have a hug, draw, […]
