Feeling Great Is Simple! Do This It’s Powerful!

rise up the world is waiting for you

“My recent posts have been about smiling and laughing. I have discussed using your neurology, your physiology purposefully to easily change your emotional states and your thoughts for the better. The reason I have is because it is so much simpler to make changes than many people think it is. We don’t have to overhaul our entire life to begin with, instead we make small, simple, significant changes that lead us along the path of living more happily and successfully. It is easy to change and to feel more wonderful!

Because it is so powerful and simple I shared it so you can start using it right away! When we feel better we think better. When we think better we feel better. We really aren’t able to separate the mind body connection. Thinking and feeling go hand in hand. When we think poorly we feel poorly. When we feel poorly we think poorly. SO become wonderful, become amazing, become happy, become positive, become the person you want to become by doing powerful little things each day.

Life will be more delightful as you add in more smiles and laughter. It truly will. Remember, when you feel delighted and enthused and happy how much more you smile and laugh. Well, if you will smile and laugh more now then you get more delight, enthusiasm and happiness. So add smiles and laughter throughout each day. Begin and end each day on a positive note. As you do this daily you will be forming good positive habits. You will discover yourself smiling and laughing more frequently and feeling better overall.

Learn to laugh at the little things and everything becomes easier. When we are able to laugh at ourselves and our mistakes, now and in the past, and those times we labelled failures we are free of them. Laughter changes everything. It frees us up! When you are able to remember difficulty and laugh at it you are over it. You have reframed it and released it! You are able to move ahead more easily.

Be grateful you were or are presently challenged. Look at the challenges and learn from them. Note the lessons and utilize them to move forward. Seek the opportunities present in the difficulties. Don’t take life or yourself so seriously. Your life and your business or career aren’t meant to be serious but to be enjoyed. So enjoy them! Now time for a short anecdote.

A friend of mine was working construction high on a roof. He slipped off but managed to catch hold of the edge. High above the ground he dangled. He realized he was not going to be able to hang on and was going to fall. Thinking this might be his final moments he decided if he had to go out he would go out well. It struck him that this was a funny moment dangling.

He decided if he was going to die he was going to die laughing. He laughed and laughed and laughed until he fell. He laughed all the way down He struck the ground laughing. Surprisingly, he was not badly injured. He was hurt some but he was fine. He was able to get up on his own and carry on. He did not require medical care but he did get checked out.

Granted this may not be the outcome for everyone. BUT as we discussed it we came to the conclusion that while we didn’t know the actual reasons he survived we postulated that by laughing he completely relaxed. His body was at ease when he landed. He was not tense, stiff or scared.

Certainly, we don’t know but it is both plausible and possible that this is what helped save him. Regardless, his choice to laugh made those moments wonderful instead of terrifying. If he could laugh in the face of potential death many of us can laugh more with life’s lessor challenges. So laugh more! Enjoy more! Delight!” Rex Sikes

Do This More Often And Feel Better!

stop waiting and go out and make them happen

“Our body and mind is one.  What we do in our mind affects our body and what we do in our body affects our mind. We can not escape this and that is very good news. If we want to feel better we can use the mind and we can use the body in particular ways to increase our well being.

It is hard wired. It is automatic. If we are feeling wonderful we think better thoughts. If we think better thoughts we feel wonderful. It is a two way street. Thought affects feeling and feeling affects thought. Mind affects the body and body affects the mind. That is the way it is!

It is simple. When we want to  feel better we move our body in particular ways. We shift our physiology. For example, when we want to feel more confident we can stand, move and breath as we do when we are feeling confident.  We put our chin up, chest out and shoulders back. As we this we begin to feel more confidence because that is how we use our body when we feel that way. Try it and you will feel it.

Mind influences body and body influences the mind. It makes perfect sense that it would be this way. Our body and brains work together producing chemicals and hormones for each of the emotional states we experience. We can deliberately use our body to trigger whatever feelings we desire; happiness, relaxation, confidence, enthusiasm and more.  Whatever we want to feel we can.

A simple thing we can do to feel better is smile more frequently. Whenever we smile our brains release the hormone serotonin which makes us feel happy. When you are happy you smile so smile and you will be happy. Smiling can be a powerful tool to use more often.

Smile first thing in the morning when you get up. Put on a broad smile and hold it. Hold it for four or five minutes while getting ready. It will help you put yourself in a great mood for the day. Do it! Make it a habit. Others will respond more positively to you too when they see you smiling. It works wonders! Smile and be happy!” Rex Sikes

Put a smile on your face through out the day!
