Swap the story for curiosity
Approaching life – thoughts, people, situations – from a place of curiosity makes us kinder, more open, less rigid. However, we often show up with stories in our heads, almost like an internal movie playing. These stories are just our own versions of reality, and the further our story is from reality the more stressed we feel about it.
Meet the world with curiosity, without fear and judgement, and the world smiles back.
Meet yourself with curiosity,
and you are met with a smile as well.
The baggage drop
The subtle art of letting go
We tend to carry around a lot of baggage.
It can be mental baggage like worry,
comparison, not-enough, too much.
It can be physical baggage like tension and pain.
Or a cluttered environment and over-filled agendas.
Very often our baggage is linked to performance – as parents, friends, family members, colleagues, students – we are even performing as ourselves. How about dropping off some of that baggage and continue traveling lighter and freer?
The happiness connection
It doesn't matter where we start
We might go about it in different ways.
Having a moment of revelation in a coaching session. Being out in nature. Finding stillness in meditation. Having an honest conversation with a friend. Making contact with our body and ourselves.
Which way we choose is up to us. What we all want is a happy head. A calm mind. Clear thoughts. Perspective. Joy and humour. Happy thoughts in a happy head. A happy head in a happy body. It's all connected. It's all part of the same body.
