Sometimes "hopeless" comes from not changing when change is needed. If your job is a sinking ship, get off that ship! Get to a place that fits you and where you'll flourish.Isn't life too short to spend the next 5 years (or 5 weeks!) doing work that's never gonna be your work?7. Sitting All Day and Night Dr. James Levine has coined the mantra, "sitting is the new smoking." And research has found evidence that prolonged sitting increases the risk of developing several serious illnesses like various types of cancer, heart disease and type 2 diabetes.And when you sit in cars, office chairs and couches all day, you are wreaking havoc on your body .... and therefore our hope! “Sitting is more dangerous than smoking, kills more people than HIV and is more treacherous than parachuting. We are sitting ourselves to death," according to Levine.
Stand up. Get outside! 8. Attacking People Who Can't Hear YouThe guy who just shouted and swore at me for inadvertantly pulling into a handicapped space, may have thought he was making life better... for whom? Does it really help to get angry at "them" and shout or even cuss when they're behind the a windshield or a tube on the TV? 9. Letting Anxious Thoughts FesterFinally, DO become aware of your inner chatter. And change it! Make that a goal! The Cleveland Wellness Clinic states that "amazingly, 95 percent are the same thoughts repeated every day. On average, 80 percent of those habitual thoughts are negative. Unfortunately, our brains are hardwired to pay more attention to negative experiences than to positive ones"What if you were to go "cold turkey" on negative thoughts? Instead, change them to grateful and positive ones?You can do this! Jeff PS. Ready to go deeper and change your thinking and change your life?
