Do something new for yourself! I noticed there was a special on that said ‘hot stone massage’ I was curious what that would be like. A friend of mine told me it’s great it’s like walking on air when you come out, so I had to try this.
Well I tell you it was GREAT 🙂 so relaxing and wonderful, I would recommend this to anybody. Not knowing what to expect, it was a real treat and as my friend said it’s like walking on air when you walk out. It’s great to give yourself a treat once in a while and it will stay with you for a long time, every time I think about it, I give myself a big inner smile and step into that lovely relaxing feeling.
Think of something nice you have done for yourself and step into that feeling, give yourself an inner smile and let that wonderful feeling float back into you and fill you with warmth.
Have you done something for yourself that when you think about it it makes you smile and gives you that great feeling? Would be great to hear!!
How to motivate yourself? Sometimes we like to do things but find all sort of obstacles in the way, like I don’t want to do this or I feel tired.
If we just say stop to ourself and think about the feeling that it will give you afterwards then it becomes easier to motivate yourself; for instance I like going to the gym, but sometimes I find an excuse and end up not going. Then I feel that I cheated on myself. The other day was such an example I didn’t wanted to go to the gym but I made a promise to myself that I would go on a regular basis so I decided to go.
As it turned out I had a lovely time. I had a chat with a lady who was training to go to the Himalayas, (imagine to walk in the Himalayas how great is that) she had a ruck sack on and was walking on the running machine. She looked great and was so excited about her forthcoming trip as you can imagine.
If I hadn’t gone there I would have never met up with this inspiring lady and heard about her training and her adventure. She inspired me with her story. It is great to go out and do things, you never know what or who you meet on the way. I felt great afterwards and was glad that I went. I said to myself “WELL DONE”. It’s a great feeling having done some physical activity, and having the excitement of the unknown, what, whom will I see, hear or meet.
If you find yourself making all sorts of excuses to not do something for yourself think about the GREAT FEELINGS that it gives you afterwards and go for it. It would be great if you can let me know!!!!!
