Another Great message from my Positive thought for the day letter....
WEDNESDAY'S WORDS - AND TODAY THERE IS ONLY ONE WORD - RELAX
What does it mean to relax? Despite hearing the term thousands of times during the course of our lives very few people have really considered what it is all about. Most people would say that relaxing is something that you plan to do later---you do it on vacation, in a hammock, when you're retire, or when you get everything done.This implies. of course, that most other times (the other 95 per cent of your life) should be spent nervous, agitated, rushed, and frenzied. Very few would come out and say so, but this is the obvious implication. Could this explain why so many of us operate as if life were one great big emergency? Most of us postpone our relaxation until our "in basket" is empty. Of course it never is.
Its useful to think of relaxation as a quality of heart that you can access on a regular basis rather than something reserved for a later time. You can relax now. It's helpful to remember that relaxed people can still be super achievers and, in fact, relaxation and creativity go hand in hand. Being more relaxed involves training yourself to respond differently to the dramas of life---turning your melodrama into a mellow-drama. It comes in part, from reminding yourself over and over again that you have a choice in how you respond to life. You can learn to relate to your thinking as well as your circumstances in new ways. With practice, making these choices will translate into a more relaxed self.
