Having one of those days

Yesterday was one of those days when things just weren’t working. Watch to learn what I did to turn things around.

Video Notes:

  • I spent time feeling sorry for myself. My self-talk included, “I can’t do anything right today.” 

  • I’d planned to go swimming but began sabotaging myself, “No, I’ll do it a different day.” Until I checked my schedule and realized I had appointments that conflicted with the other open swim times.

  • I made the decision to go swimming even though I felt lousy.

  • While moving through the water I found myself in a more focused, relaxed state.

  • I felt my physical limitations fade away in the water.

  • Swimming became as much a mindset boost as a physical one.

  • Where is your place of calm and focus? Is it walking in nature, reading, participating in a hobby. For me, lately, it’s being in the water.

  • You need an activity that allows you to feel completely connected with yourself. It’s a powerful form of mind, body and spirit self-care.

  • Lastly I share a conversation with a child that occurred as I was getting ready to leave.
