It helps to look at the positives. As often as I can in this crazy challenging life I look for the lessons and then I share them with others. (That should be my blog tagline!) Living with mental illness is a result of some incredibly dark times in my distant past, although distant they are very much still a part of my every day. Mental illness does not just go away, taking a tablet doesn’t cure it, and sometimes no matter how many things you try to ‘manage’ it, it simply just becomes a part of life forever more.
It’s likely that you spend quite a bit of your time in a workplace of some sort. It may the traditional office environment, it may be working from home, managing a team remotely, managing a household or any variation on the ‘office’. No matter the type of workplace, you have the power to make it a better place for everyone, yourself included! It is a well known fact that acts of kindness are some of the best types of therapy! It is also widely known that the energy you put out into a place or the wider world is the energy that you attract more of. So it makes sense to be a kind human at work!
Do you ever just want the world to S L O W .. D O W N a little, or a lot? It seems like this can be a never ending struggle some days, the rate at which others expect you to answer your phone, reply to your emails, finish your to do list and everything in between is relentless. If you share my desire to slow things down a little, you may be keen to use this little tool that has quickly become one of my best friends in the push back on the rush!
