A Breath of Fresh Air

A few days ago I wrote about feeling good and how it helps us be more productive, more creative and opens doors for us that can help us reach our goals.

If you are still wondering how much truth there is to that, consider how often we feel lazy and unmotivated when we allow moodiness to rule. When we feel disappointed, sad or unappreciated, notice how little we get done, how we allow those feelings to prevent us from getting going.

We can witness the truth of how our feelings affect us in our everyday life by observing our own behavior and noting when we are really performing to our best.

So if we know this is true and we can redirect our own energies, stir it up to get the most out of life. Sometimes it can be as simple as putting on some music and dancing, or going for a walk, going for a swim, just about anything.

When we want to bust out of a rut, a good way is to just get up and do something to stimulate the flow of endorphins, get some oxygen flowing through the blood, the brain, seeing and smelling the plants in bloom.

Often that is immediately followed by a new idea, and the idea is followed with new actions.

Decide to be happy first and see what happens next. We already know what happens when we feel sad and do not do much. Which one feels better?
