Are you feeling depleted, overwhelmed, stressed-out, frumpy, tired, bored or lethargic? If you are, you may have lost your groove. It happens to a few of us at some point. We’re in our flow and life is wonderful, everything is working smoothly, we're in the groove, having fun and turning a few heads. Then we are getting older and before we know it we’re waking up feeling off track, out of whack. We can't find our groove!
All you need to know right now is that if you have lost your groove, there is a different option available. You don't have to remain in the groove-less place for too long. There is a different choice. You know when your have your groove: life feels vibrant and beautiful, your energy is balanced and bright, and you feel connected to yourself and others.
A little secret I'm going to reveal here is that getting your groove back starts with choosing to be grateful for you and for your life from where you are. Celebrate and enjoy now. Don't wait for things to change. Take a moment, right now, to appreciate something about yourself. Look around for the magic in your life and enjoy life's small pleasures. Be grateful for what you have instead of focusing on what you lack. And every time you are grateful for what shows up, more will show up. So would you start asking, “What am I grateful for in my life?”
Here are 5 simple and generative ways to get your groove back.
1. Follow Your Curiosity. By being curious you will be able to see new possibilities which are normally hidden behind the surface of normal life. Question everything!
2. Change your points of view and perception. Your points of view become your reality. Nothing will kill your groove faster than trying to maintain your fixed points of view. So with every fixed point of view you have, every rightness that you believe, every wrongness that you believe, you are limiting your ability to receive abundantly.
3. Be willing to have change. What is it in your life you have been unwilling or unable to change that you would actually like to change? Would you be willing to actually have 'change'? Paying attention to your desire and listening to your awareness are some of the best ways to get your groove back.
4. Do what you love and love what you do. So let me ask you this? Are you doing what you really want to do, or are you trying to fulfill the expectations of others? What if your whole life was based on the joy of it and there was no other reason or justification?
5. Smile often and everywhere. There’s Magic In Your Smile. The act of smiling activates neural messaging that benefits your health and happiness. The physical act of smiling actually triggers the release of neural communication-boosting neuropeptides as well as mood-boosting neurotransmitters like dopamine and serotonin.
The important thing is not to stop questioning… Never lose a holy curiosity.
