Affirmation: Some days completely suck! But thankfully I paid attention in science so I’ve learned that a day only lasts ONE FREAKING DAY! Action Plan: Your mission today is to sing. That’s right, you heard me, I said SING! I don’t care if you can’t hold a freakin’ note, just do it and the louder the better! And for the love of all that’s holy, you have to sing OUT LOUD! I mean, this is science, people!
Singing releases endorphins which make you happy, and it forces you to breathe deeper which reduces stress. PLUS it’s considered an aerobic activity, so, BAM!, today’s cardio: DONE! You’re welcome. PLUS, it will probably make you feel silly and laugh, and there is not a damn thing wrong with that! It may make your co-workers laugh as well; hell, maybe they’ll join you! If you’re not sure which song, how about this from Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer:
There's always tomorrow for dreams to come true. Tomorrow is not far away.
These 2 songs are also great to stop a spiral down:
Stop, oh yes, wait a minute Mr. Postman!
Stop in the name of love!
I’m not gonna lie – this isn’t easy when you feel like shit – but you CAN do it and it DOES help! And, guess what? Since your voice is always with you (see, there’s that science again), you can use this any time you want!
Edit from one of my muses: “Do it NOW
before the bucking-bronco rodeo gate of your day opens up and tosses you all over the ring!"
Spiral level: ALL
Use when feeling: sad, pissed, depressed
