Change your life. Five minutes at a time.

image

Are you tired of doing the same old, same old?

Are you ready to end the repetitive cycles in your life?

Is it time for a change?

But …..  you…..  don’t…..  have…  time…

Enough with the excuses. Little changes can make a big difference. They add up. Start small, end big is my mantra. It can be yours too.

Begin the transformation process with a daily habit. Something that you do automatically – without thinking. Start with what’s right in front of you. Literally in the palm of your hand.

Put your phone down. Look up. For five minutes at a time. Set a timer. 

Program your phone to beep randomly throughout the day. Every time you hear it beep – take a full on tech break. (Five minute intervals thoughout the day.)

A spa session for the mind. A hello to the world moment. Time to breathe deeply. To stretch fully. To grab reality by the horns. Out of the fog of facebook into the clarity of reality. (Five minutes at a time.) Move your body. Raise your voice. Feel the firmness of the ground beneath you.

Wink at a stranger. Give the cashier a high five. Drink a tall glass of water with gusto. Anything and everything that brings you back to the pulse of your life – this present moment. (Five minutes at a time.)

Sketch out your dream house. Create an innovative recipe. Write in your journal. Do five push-ups. Leave positive affirmations on post-it notes for strangers. Imagine your ultimate vacation destination. Do something different. Be someone unexpected.

This is where the magic happens. Right here. Right now.. Try it. Be fully present. I dare you. Double dare you. Put your phone down and let the transformation begin! 🍃🌿

  3. Love this! I am a firm believer in “Try Something New.” It shakes up our routine and gets us thinking in new ways. You are so right . . . tiny changes make for big changes that can move us into entirely different worlds of happiness and joy. Thanks for sharing!

      1. “Snap out of it” is a good one! Someone taught me to just stop for a minute and think: “what are my options?” Sometimes I get so caught up in what I’m doing that I forget that I can make another choice. I bet “Snap out of it” does the same for you!

  4. Love this, Andrea! You have such a great message. One step at a time.

    I’m going to Philly for the day and to attend a ministers meeting (I’m a minister in an alternative spiritual group). So big tech break ahead!

    Blessings and much love 💜
