4 things you should give up to be happy

Very good advice…Enjoy!

 

Most people have it wrong.

Most folks think that by gathering more stuff, they’ll finally find happiness.

But often, you can find true happiness RIGHT NOW, in this moment, simply by letting go.

Here are 4 things that you can let go of that will make you a happier, more peaceful person by the time you hit the sack tonight:

1) Let go of the need to impress others.

If you’re a human being, chances are you care about what other people think of you.

After all – we are naturally social creatures!

But if you find yourself spending too much of your time, money or energy trying to impress other people and get their approval, you’re not being true to YOU.

There’s no need to try and be something you’re not, because who you are right now is FABULOUS!

Focus instead on living the most authentic version of yourself.

When you fully embrace who you are and share it with others, you’ll find that people will appreciate how REAL you are and will flock to you effortlessly. 🙂

2) Let go of the need to be right.

Sometimes when we feel we’ve been mistreated or misunderstood by someone, we can get caught up into wanting that person to admit they’ve wronged us.

And we want an apology!

Or at least acknowledgement that we are right and they’re wrong. 🙂

The problem is that not all human beings see things from the same perspective. In your world, you’re right… but in their world, so are they.

There are definitely times where an apology is necessary.

But most other times, rather than allowing feelings of negativity to take root inside you and start spilling over into other areas of your life, it may be best to ask yourself this:

“Do I want to be right? Or do I want to be happy?”

Often it’s just our ego that keeps us holding on to past resentments and upsets. Instead, consider letting go of the desire to be right and you’ll find you’ll instantly restore happiness and contentment in your life.

3) Let go of the desire to gossip.

I’ve heard it said that gossip is just a cheap way to make yourself feel good, and I have to agree.

We all know that gossiping about other people is… well, not so good.

But when the people around you are doing it, it can be easy to slip into doing it, too!

Consider though that the quality of your life depends on the quality of the conversations you have.

If you want to live a more fulfilling life, start by embracing the power of your word. Your voice is powerful! And what you have to say makes a difference.

Be committed to having more positive conversations about things that matter… not people… and you’ll be surprised how quickly you’ll brighten your outlook on life.

4) Let go of the past.

It’s easy to dwell on the past, especially when the future is so unknown!

Looking to the past can feel safe… we know what has happened and we know what we could do to change things… if only we had the chance.

The truth is, though, that you never will have the chance to change the past.

Not unless scientists finally invent a time machine. 😉

Your past has served its purpose – it’s brought you to the place you are today and made you the person you are now. And who you are right now is absolutely perfect.

Be grateful for your experiences, but know that NOW is all you have. So do your best to enjoy each moment. Give yourself the gift of being present!   To your everlasting happiness,

Natalie

How to Do a Full Day’s Work in 90 Minutes

How to Do a Full Day’s Work in 90 minutes


The typical American office worker only does about 90 minutes of real work per workday.

By Steve Pavlina,
Author of
How to Order from the Universe

The rest of each workday is largely spent on distractions like reading the news, web surfing, socializing with coworkers, snacking, taking coffee breaks, shuffling papers around, processing irrelevant emails, needless delay tactics, playing games, and daydreaming.

Moreover, American office workers are among the world’s most productive. In many other countries, even less work gets done each day.

This stat hasn’t changed much in decades, despite massive investments in time management and productivity training by many companies. We have more technology to assist us in being productive, but we also have more to distract us.

The general problem is that we’re still applying an industrial age model to the productivity of knowledge workers. It makes sense to pay attention to hours worked if the productive output for each hour is roughly the same. That may be true for repetitive labor, but it doesn’t apply much to knowledge workers.

For a knowledge worker, what’s the difference between an hour of peak productivity vs. a low productivity hour? That peak hour could easily be 10x more productive in terms of the volume of work completed and the results generated.

What sense does it make to spend more time at the office if you’re normally operating at less than 20% of capacity? Why not simply do 90 minutes of real work and then go home for the day?

What if you could complete a whole day’s work in only 90 minutes? What would that 90-minute period look like?

Focus Blocks

Here are some recommendations for having a very productive 90-min period (let’s call it a focus block):

1. Pick one theme – Instead of doing a bunch of random actions, pick one clear theme for the block. This allows your brain to load in a singular context and stick with it, which makes you more efficient. Your theme may be a project you’re working on, a type of work like catching up on correspondence, or anything that lets your brain load in one clear context and stick with it.

2. Define the finish line – See your focus block as a fast dash to the finish line. But where is the finish line? What does it look like? Having a clear goal that’s only 90 minutes away will help you focus. Don’t worry if you don’t cross the finish line each time; it’s there to help you focus, so aim for it, but accept that sometimes you’ll miss. Some examples: Write and post a new blog entry. Process items in my email inbox till it’s completely empty. Plan and schedule all my focus blocks for the upcoming week.

3. List the action steps – List the specific actions you’ll take during this block. For some blocks this is really helpful. For others it may not be necessary if the steps are already clear. I wouldn’t list out my action steps for writing a new article since that process is very familiar to me, but I’d list brainstorm and list steps for an unfamiliar new project to make it easier to get started. Some examples: Delete all obvious spam and clutter from my email inbox first. Then quickly process all messages that I can handle in less than two minutes each. Next, sort and prioritize longer messages for response. Respond to my most important longer messages till I’m at the 90-minute point. Surrender to the realization that it’s not a good use of my time to reply to the rest, and just archive them to empty the inbox.

4. Ensure zero interruptions – Do whatever it takes to ensure that you will not be interrupted under any circumstances during your focus block. If necessary, tell people in advance that you will not be available for the next 90 minutes; let them know that you will be available after that. Lock your door if you can. If you can’t guarantee that you won’t be interrupted in your current work environment, then do your focus block somewhere else. You’ll be much more productive and your focus will be deeper if you know for certain that you won’t be interrupted.

5. Work fast – Think fast. Move fast. Work fast. If you catch yourself going slow, speed up! Imagine that you’re in a race, and you have to maintain a strong pace for the full 90 minutes. After that you can rest. With practice this gets easier.

6. Allow no distractions – During your focus block, you must do your pre-defined work and nothing else. Keep your cell phone off. Turn off any notifications that might interrupt you. Turn off your Internet access if you won’t need it during this block. Do not check email during this time. Do not take a coffee break or snack break. Use the bathroom during this time only if you must.

I think you get the idea.

Avoid the Gray Zone and Take Real Breaks

Many people spend their workdays in a gray zone marathon. That’s why it takes them 7-8 hours to do 90 minutes of work. They work slowly and inefficiently. Their work time is cluttered with distractions and interruptions. They begin late and wind down early. Most of the time, they’re only half working.

Instead of doing a gray zone marathon each day, cycle between real work and real breaks. This will be much more efficient, even if you work only half as many hours or less.

Don’t immediately go from one focus block right into another. After you complete a focus block, celebrate your achievement. Then assess where you are. Tune into your energy and see how you feel.

If you’re still feeling alert and energized, you may only need a short break. Take 5-10 minutes to stretch, go to the bathroom, and have some fresh fruit. Then feel free to dive right into another focus block.

If you feel tired, it’s good to eat something and/or take a nap.

If you feel like doing something physical, go for a walk or take an exercise break.

If you feel like you could use some emotional renewal, you may wish to meditate, socialize, or read some inspiring material.

How long should your breaks be? Make them as long as necessary till you’re ready for another round of focused work. Sometimes you may only need a few minutes. Other times it may be wise to take a couple hours off, especially if the previous block was particularly draining. Between focus blocks, seek to refresh and renew your energy until you’re ready to handle another focus block.

Do your best not to load up your breaks with gray zone tasks like email since that’s more likely to drain you. I recommend batching small tasks into their own focus block (including email). But if it’s just a quick one-minute email check now and then, that probably won’t be too bad, but never do email checks during a block unless it’s critical for the completion of the block.

Realize that if you only complete one focus block in a whole day, you’ve still done as much real work as the typical American office worker does in a full eight-hour day. And if you only complete two blocks, you’re twice as productive as most. On a super productive day, you may complete five or six blocks, which is like getting a full week’s worth of work done in one day.

Do a Week of Work in a Day

During one of the most productive periods of my life, when I was doing contract game programming work, I’d normally work from 9am to noon, take a one hour break for lunch, and then work from 1pm until 5pm or 6pm. But I’d subdivide the work into shorter focus blocks of deep concentration.

At the start of each day, I’d define the next milestone I wanted to reach, such as a short list of new features to add. Then I’d make a short list of action steps in my work journal (just an everyday spiral notebook). Sometimes I wouldn’t bother to list the action steps if they seemed obvious. Then I’d program the items on the list. Finally, I’d compile the software, test the program, fix bugs, and tweak the implementation until I was satisfied. A typical milestone would take me about 45-90 minutes to achieve.

Since I was programming games, testing the program meant playing the game a little to test the new features as well as the overall gameplay. In effect, the testing phase gave my brain a nice break from designing algorithms and writing code.

When I finished one cycle like this, I’d feel a nice little sense of accomplishment. I might take a quick stretch break. Then I’d make a new list and repeat.

In the morning, I would complete a few of these cycles, perhaps three of them. In the afternoon I’d do several more. My game projects progressed very quickly during this time. Every day I added many new features. I could have a prototype of a whole new game running in just a few days this way. With today’s better development tools, the work can progress even faster.

During lunch each day, I took a complete break to restore my mental energy. I rarely went to lunch with my co-workers. Usually I brought a sack lunch with me, but I left the office to go eat. I’d drive to a nearby park, sit on the grass with my back against a tree, and eat alone in silence. I’d let go of work and just relax. After eating, I’d lie back on the grass and take a 20-minute nap, or I’d stare up at the sky and totally zone out. I’d enjoy the breeze and listen to the birds. I gave the brain circuits I needed for programming work a very restful break. Then I’d go back to my car, return to work, and crank out a few more cycles before leaving for the day.

Test, Train, and Experiment

If you aren’t used to a working rhythm of alternating focus blocks with rest periods, you may need to practice this method for a while to get used to it. I expect you’ll really like it once you taste this kind of flow. Doing a full day’s work in about 90 minutes is not only efficient; it’s also motivated and energizing.

Cycles of about 90 minutes usually work well once you get up to speed. But you may find that shorter cycles like 45 or 60 minutes work better for you. You may also find that different cycle lengths are more suited to different types of work. Sometimes I’ll keep going for 2.5 hours (or more) if I’m feeling good, especially when writing a new article.

Some people like having scheduled focus blocks with scheduled breaks, so everything is a set duration. They’re sticklers for starting and stopping at set times. There’s some evidence that this helps your brain optimize its performance if your cycles are the same every day.

For instance, you might have focus blocks at 5:30-7:00am, 8:00-9:30am, 10:30am-noon, 1pm-2:30pm, and 3:30-5pm, which would give you five 90-minute focus blocks with hour-long breaks in between. This would be a super productive day that would see you doing as much real work in one day as the typical American office worker does in a week, but you’re only working for 7.5 hours total.

Other people prefer a more organic approach, deciding based on their energy levels how low each focus block and break should be. This is how I work most of the time.

A modest but still highly productive schedule might entail having three focus blocks per day. You could easily complete a great deal of work this way. Many top creative workers only work 3-5 hours per day, but they work with deep focus and zero interruptions during that time.

Don’t succumb to the cultural bias that may try to convince you that working 8+ hours per day makes you productive. That may be true for physical labor and some repetitive tasks, but it’s not true for knowledge workers and creative types. Many people enjoy tremendous flow and achieve great results by working in short high energy, bursts of motivation and drive. Try this for yourself, and you may never want to return to the gray zone of long, unproductive workdays again.

Eating Well and Staying Active While Traveling…Important!

This is a good article from the Independent Traveler blog with some great tips for staying healthy while traveling…Enjoy!

Eating Well and Staying Active While Traveling

bike beach sunsetWithout access to your local supermarket or your favorite Pilates DVD, on your next trip you may find yourself subsisting on fattening restaurant meals and abandoning your usual exercise routine to sit for long hours on planes or buses. Vegetarian, organic, low carb, low cal, low fat — no matter which diet you’re on, there’s a good chance that it went down the tubes on your last vacation.

But believe it or not, it is possible to eat well on a cross-country road trip, to stay active without access to a gym and even to go on a cruise without gaining 5 or 10 pounds. You can eat healthy and stay active no matter what kind of trip you’re taking.

On the Plane

There’s no more captive audience than a plane full of air travelers, particularly those on long international flights. But just because you’re stuck on a plane doesn’t mean you’re stuck eating the congealed meat and starchy sides the airlines call food. (That’s if your airline serves meals at all.)

Your first line of defense against unhealthy airline menus is to bring what food you can from home.Airport security rules prohibit passengers from taking liquids and gels in excess of 3.4 ounces through airport security checkpoints, but solid snacks like bananas, apples, trail mix, nuts, carrots, celery sticks and energy bars should pass muster. Pack a few of these in your carry-on and skip the airline’s salty snacks.

Once you’ve passed through security, anything you buy at the airport may be brought onto your flight, so this is your chance to stock up on bottled water and buy a salad or sandwich to eat on the plane. Many airports have begun adding more healthy dining options to their standard array of fast food; look for dishes with lots of vegetables and fiber, and skip the fried stuff.

In flight, avoid alcohol and soft drinks — both can dehydrate you. Water is always your best bet for staying hydrated and sticking to your diet.

Healthiest Airport Food (and Airport Food to Avoid)

On the Road

Long hours of sitting in the car and eating fast food at every rest stop can derail a diet faster than you can say “road trip.” How can you break the cycle? First, take McDonald’s off the menu. Before you set forth on your journey, fill a cooler with healthy snacks like fruit, raw veggies and sandwiches from home, and then restock your stash along the way with offerings from local grocery stores. Don’t forget the bottled water! (Save money and the environment by purchasing gallon jugs of water to use to refill your bottles.)

raspberries blackberries fruit healthyBypass rest stops and seek out independent cafes and restaurants — not only will you eat better, but you’ll also meet locals and get a better flavor of the town you’re in. For help finding healthy local eateries, try the VegOut app, which offers listings of nearby vegan, vegetarian and vegetarian-friendly restaurants. GoodFoodNearYou is another useful app that pinpoints the healthiest menu options at restaurants in your area, including fast food chains.

On particularly long car trips, be sure to stop at least once a day for an exercise break. Check your road map or GPS for nearby national, state or local parks where you can go for a hike, or spend some time exploring a new town or city by foot.

The Eight Best U.S. Road Trips

At the Hotel

When choosing a hotel, look for one that offers a fitness center or pool — and then use it once you get there! Most major booking sites allow you to customize your search to show only hotels that offer certain fitness amenities.

If your hotel doesn’t have a gym, why not bring your own? We don’t advise trying to squeeze a set of dumbbells into your suitcase, but it’s easy enough to pack a resistance band or to download an exercise program onto your MP3 player so that you can work out in your room. (iTRAIN is one of several companies providing downloadable workouts.) As a lower-tech option, you can always jog around the local neighborhood, make your own exercise routine of jumping jacks and squats, or do some early-morning stretches or stomach crunches before heading out for the day.

You may also want to consider booking a hotel room with a kitchenette or even renting a house or apartment so that you can do your own cooking. This will save you money on food and give you more control over your diet.

At Sea

exercise cruise jog jogger alaskaCruise ships have a well-deserved reputation as bastions of gluttony, with food, food and more food available literally 24 hours a day on many ships. Luckily, amid all the pizza, creamy pastas and self-serve ice cream, most cruise lines also offer lighter and healthier options with reduced fat, sodium and/or carbs. Royal Caribbean, Carnival, Holland America and many other lines have eliminated trans fats completely from their dining rooms, and on most ships you’ll find vegetarian and other healthier options clearly marked on the menus.

Along with overeating, cruisers have also traditionally faced the temptation to laze around by the pool instead of staying active — but on today’s ships, there’s no reason not to exercise if you have the motivation. Nearly all modern vessels have a gym and jogging track at the bare minimum, and most also offer a number of fitness classes (yoga, aerobics, etc.) that passengers can take thoughout their cruise.

Newer ships, particularly those in the Royal Caribbean fleet, have everything from ice skating rinks and rock-climbing walls to bowling alleys and boxing rings. But here’s perhaps the simplest way to get in a little extra exercise: don’t take the elevator. Most modern-day mega-ships have so many decks that jogging up or down the stairs every time you need to get somewhere will easily help you burn a few extra calories.

For more information on healthy dining and active onboard options, see 17 Ways a Cruise Can Keep You Healthy.

Off the ship, choose active shore excursions — like hiking or kayaking around a Caribbean island rather than touring it by motorcoach, or snorkeling instead of lying on the beach all day. Do enough physical activity during the day, and maybe you can even treat yourself to an order of late-night room service!

Nine Best Destinations to See from the Water

At Your Destination

The possibilities for active getaways around the world are almost limitless — think skiing in the Alps, horseback riding in Montana or canoeing down the Amazon River. But even if you’re not up for that much outdoor adventure, there’s a lot more you can do than just sit on a bus and passively take in the scenery.

For example, you can see Europe by bicycle with Bike Tours Direct, a clearinghouse for guided and self-guided tours through dozens of countries, including Italy, France, Austria and Portugal. You’ll cycle along scenic river banks, past vineyards and through medieval towns, combining all-day exercise with a more intimate look at the European countryside than you could ever get from the seat of a bus. For more ideas, see Bike Tours and Trips.

eiffel tower paris france woman walking walkA similar opportunity is available for joggers in cities across the U.S. with City Running Tours. Personalized routes take runners through the West Village, along the National Mall or up and down the hills of San Francisco, to name just a few.

Jogging and biking aside, you can’t go wrong with good old-fashioned walking. There’s no better way to experience a city than on foot, so take time to walk between major attractions rather than jumping on a bus or a subway. You’ll experience the flavor of different neighborhoods and be able to duck into any cafe or shop that strikes your fancy along the way.

For info on vacations dedicated to walking or hiking, see Walking Tours and Trips.

A Note on Eating Internationally

We’ve mentioned salads as a great healthy option when you’re on the road, but if you’re in a developing country where your risk of food- or water-borne illness is high, you’ll want to pass on raw fruits and vegetables. Instead, try to find dishes that feature cooked vegetables, and make sure they’re served piping hot. Similarly, while water remains your healthiest beverage option, you’ll want to check that your drinking supply is safe, particularly if you’re traveling in a developing country.

Summary of Brenda’s January 2, 2015  free, 15-minute, channeled “Creation Energies” show at  http://www.BlogTalkRadio.com/brenda-hoffman:  Some of you feel transition symptoms, others are addressing their shadow side and still others of you have reached the top of your mountain – a very difficult climb indeed – and are now descending via beautiful green rolling hills filled with spring flowers and sunshine. You’ll probably descend much of 2015 – re-learning to play like children and to truly love yourself. Your promised land is in the valley below.

The title of last week’s “Brenda’s Blog” – her free, weekly, channeled blog forwww.LifeTapestryCreations.com: “Why Not?” 

Brenda’s “Creation Energies” show and “Brenda’s Blog” contain different channeled information.

Dear Ones,

The next few days will bring many changes to your life and that of others. You have surfed through wild energy surges and climbed emotional mountains. You have experienced feelings like salmon swimming upstream – accepting all, always moving forward. But you have not yet truly accepted the AHAs that are now of your life forever more.

Part of your climb has been accepting your true worth. Even though many of you feel as if you have many mountains yet to climb, you are further ahead than you realize.

You believe you do not deserve rewards until you have completed all your tasks – a 3D belief that has little to do with new you.

Such fears, concerns and the need to be perfect are what you are leaving, not what you are moving to. Even though some of you feel a need for an A+ in all parts of your transition, all you have ever needed to do was acknowledge your interest in new you and the rest followed automatically.

Perhaps you remember your ‘dark night of the soul,’ that terrible period when you let go of your greatest fears, your worthlessness, your inability to be whole. Or perhaps you remember how many times you revisited pieces of your dark night of the soul – only to experience those fears yet again.

That was yesterday. You have transitioned beyond that.

Any additional clearing is your old 3D need to be perfect in others’ eyes. Something you could never really achieve for others set guidelines that had nothing to do with your innate being, but instead helped control society.

Now that you have cleared those 3D feelings of lack and not good enough, it is time to fully own your being. So it is in the next few days you will discover pieces of yourself you have not accepted or noted before.

You are gods/goddesses of the highest form. No one including society, gurus, angels or beings in other dimensions is more powerful than you.

In the next few days, you will BEGIN to accept that concept. You will know you are capable of whatever you wish, of whatever your inner-being whispers in your ear.

Does that mean you will leave your job, family or friends to start a new life? No, merely that you will know you can do so if you wish – but only if you wish.

Many cling to the belief that you must save the world, that you must be an example for others by creating this or that.

It does not matter who or what you are in earthly realms for you will soon know within every cell of every segment of your being that you truly are a god/goddess in every sense of the word. You do not have to prove to yourself or anyone else that you are. You merely have to follow your inner-voice to find the joy that is your right – and role.

Do not ever think that you must be THE role model for anyone other than yourself.

By being yourself in total freedom, you will be the beacon you elected to be before entering earth in this lifetime and most likely, many others.

This transition is far beyond anything you imagined lifetimes ago or even before you entered earth in this lifetime. Your new world is about to explode in fun and joy for you have climbed your mountain. You have surfed the waves. You have completed every difficult task set before you including energy surges and software uploads. Yet, you continued movement to your promised land on faith and some channeled messages.

You are about to explode into your new life. For after you climb your mountain, you gently roll down the other side in childish glee – reclaiming those pieces of you forgotten in this lifetime.

This next wonderful phase is about claiming your totality. You are now probably thinking, “So what is new?” This phase is not the arduous climb up craggy mountains filled with snow and wild creatures that frightened you in your need to reach the top. But instead, reclaiming joy and self-love as you gleefully role and skip down the rolling hills to your promised land below.

There are some who continue to climb their mountain. That is fine and good for this transition is in stages. But those of you climbing your mountain need to know that those who went before left a bright path for you so you will complete that part of shedding old you in a much shorter time than was true for them.

Know that your mountain scout masters have become children waiting for you to play with them as they scamper down the gently rolling hills that is now their domain. Allow and encourage them to be for they are the ones who will allow you to be when it is your turn to roll down the gentle hills covered in green grass and spring flowers.

Once you reach the valley or the promised land – perhaps in a few months or a bit longer – you will be both child and adult free of the restraints that 3D earth imposed upon you for eons. So be it. Amen.
