Two lovely ladies had the giggles last week in my yoga class. Great giggles. Your eyes started watering just watching them. When did you last laugh so much that your belly hurt, eyes watered and you just couldn't stop? I reflected on my laughs to trace the really uncontrollable one but it was hard work. My brain took me all the way back to high school and showed me that some great laughs with my friends are still stored there. But what about the recent ones?
I'll return to the giggling ladies above. After the class someone else said - can I please have a bit of what you two are on? Ah! That's another way our brains work. They look for quick fixes. Magic bullets. We start new diet and think that our whole life will improve. Or new clothes, shoes, another self-help book maybe will do it?
From my experience nothing lasts except investing time and energy into getting to know ourselves a little better. Consistently and regularly. In fact consistency IS the magic bullet! Whatever we work on consistency will get us there - one step at a time. Looking after our health and wellbeing one step in a time will have us bursting into laughter spontaneously in no time. So all that is needed is to relax and take it one step in a time - book a massage, go to yoga, sleep longer, drink more water, meditate.... Just one step at a time.
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
