Welcome to January’s 7 Day Jump Start (you can use this Jump Start anytime you feel like you need to get back on track and find the lightness and happiness in your life- it doesn’t have to be at the start of the New Year). Each Day – I will feature a jump start tip/activity/exercise to help you really get your energy moving and bring you closer to your goals. Today we are on Day 6- you can still start with Day 1.
Day 6. Say Thank you. If you want to turn your day around instantly- say thank you more often throughout the day and really feel it. One great tip from the book, The Magic, is to say thank you one hundred times with each step you take (this takes about 90 seconds). I do this on the treadmill- because when I first get on – I don’t always feel thankful- but after I devote 90 seconds to saying thank you- I am there.
Even if you face a distressing or stressful situation- you can find many aspects of it to say thanks. For instance, if your plans change- you can say thank you that you have time for something else.
Saying thank you is the most powerful energy shift that you can do at any time. We think we say it all of the time, but I remember just a few months ago- I was at my bank- and the bank teller said- “Thank you, Ms. Hoff for banking with us for all of these years.” Honestly, I almost had tears in my eyes- because I couldn’t remember the last time a service provider thanked me in that way- yes- I have heard the hasty- “Thanks- have a great day” a gazzillion times- but a heartfelt and sincere thank you was beautiful.
You have a chance to make someone’s day today.
