    TIP 1427 – Serendipity

    TIP 1427 – Serendipity

    What a surprise. Who could have imagined that it would happen because of us meeting like this.

    The Seventeenth Law of the Universe is The Law of Serendipity which states that the Universe bends in our direction by providing us with seemingly accidental and unexpected fortuitous circumstances which we often call luck.

    Serendipity is the term for a “happy accident” or a “pleasant surprise.” Serendipity is an attitude in which you are always expecting happy surprises to occur.

    So Here are today’s Tips For Building Resiliency and Celebrating Serendipity Day

    Step out of your routine, step out of your comfort zone, and try new things. Go new places. Meet new people. When you shake things up, you are preparing the ground for serendipity to occur.

    Try taking a Serendipity Walk. A Serendipity Walk is where you wander with an empty mind. Serendipity means roving around without thinking about any problem, agenda and plan and see what happens and where you end up. No deadline and no destination. In this kind of walk you give your brain a rest and let your instinct and imagination direct you.

    Serendipity Day encourages people to look for and notice those unexpected good things that are always out there, if we have the eyes to see them.

    TIP 1426 – Admit You’re Happy

    What is your burden to blessing ratio?

    How often do you catch yourself complaining about something and how often are you outwardly expressing gratitude?

    For most of us, we spend far too much time looking at the negative and the difficult and not nearly enough looking at the positive and the awesome.

    The more that we focus on the positive and the awesome, the bigger the impact it will have on our happiness.

    And it encourages others to admit to being appreciative and happy in their lives.

    So celebrate the brief moments that make you smile, and the occasions that knock your socks off!

    Dr. Amit Sood, Professor of Medicine and the Mayo Clinic, states that life’s happiest moments have one or more of these three ingredients: Creating, Connecting, Caring.

    What positive things have happened to you today? Acknowledge all of them.

    Be proud of who you are. Celebrate yourself.

    Keep a positive mental attitude. You’ll feel better, live better, and be happier.

    TIP 1425 - What Will Be Your Legacy?

    TIP 1425 - What Will Be Your Legacy?

    My son’s archery coach was very sick and my son wrote him a letter letting him know how much my son liked him as a coach and mentor, about how his helpfulness and encouragement made my son feel and how much he was going to be missed.  I was told that this letter touched the man very deeply.  He had a huge impact on my son and he was leaving a wonderful legacy.

    So–What words would your friends use to describe you?  What words would your family use?  Your business partners?

    This month consider what legacy you are leaving to those around you.

    Is your impact something that you can be proud of?   Are your behaviours aligned with your values and beliefs?  What do people think of when they think of you?

    Take One Action Today To Build Your #Resiliency! So Here are today’s Tips For Building Resiliency and Celebrating What Will Be Your Legacy Month:

    Some of the legacies that I have been gratefully left…

    Financial responsibility – I watch my parents work hard to make ends meet on the family farm. Money was to be used wisely and decisions weighed against needs and wants.

    Strong work ethic – They taught me that to get what you want you have to work hard and be persistent. 

    Community – I watched both my grandparents and parents volunteer at the church and the local chamber.  I saw how they pitched in when other’s in the community needed their help.  I learned that we have a responsibility to those around us and we help out when we can.

    Consider the legacy that you have been left.

    TIP 1424 – Relax!

    TIP 1424 – Relax!

    We finally have a day off.  One that we have been looking forward to.  Only to be struck down with some kind of bug which makes us feel rotten. These symptoms can be a sign of leisure illness and they are often linked to stress caused by work overload and pushing ourselves too hard before taking time off.

    Sometimes it is not until we stop the ‘rollercoaster ride’ that our body responds, and we experience these flu or cold like symptoms.

    Take One Action Today To Build Your #Resiliency!  So Here are today’s Tips For Building Resiliency and Celebrating National Relaxation Day:

    Vacations are important to our health and well-being, so don’t wait for the ‘right’ time.  Make plans to use all of your vacation allotment, whether it be a day off, an extended weekend or a longer vacation period.

    Do not over-program your days off.  Look for activities that are relaxing and rejuvenating.

    Promote relaxation.  Try deep breathing, visualization, yoga or a massage. 

    Get involved in a hobby.  Try gardening, fishing, boating, or reading a book.  Reading something uplifting activates the same positive emotion center as experiencing a happy moment first-hand.

    Get out and Play. Play is important for all aspects of our lives, including creativity and relationships. When we play, we trigger a mix of endorphins that lift our spirits and the relationships that we form during play remind us that we are not alone in this world. Playing with a pet can elevate levels of serotonin and dopamine, which calm and relax us.

    TIP 1423 – Reduce The Clutter

    TIP 1423 – Reduce The Clutter

    How you organize yourself can either help or hinder in the way that you deal with stress. Clean out your inbox, or clean out your closet and you’ll notice the stress relief from being organized and clutter free.

    Clutter can add more chaos. But being too worried that everything is in its place can stop us from being productive and creative as well.

    Your personal organization should help you to move forward, give you a sense of control over your space and help to decrease the stress that you feel.

    Take One Action Today To Build Your #Resiliency! Here are today’s Tips For Building Resiliency and Celebrating National Reduce the Clutter Week:

    Use baskets to gather unread magazines/journals/computer accessories etc.

    Colour coded file folders makes for easier identification and location of topics.

    The idea of keeping sentimental treasures is not entirely practical and I am not really good at letting go. I know that there is simply no reason to save that dried flower that my first boyfriend gave me back in high school. Besides, how much am I actually enjoying anything that’s packed up in a box? We need to let these things go.

    De-junk your clothes closet while you are at it. Look at the bottom third of any drawer. These are usually the clothes that you are not attached to and could be donated.

    Purge periodically – it takes time but gives you more space and you may find that it can trigger your creative juices
