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…
Surrender your fears, your resistance, your excuses.
Change need not be overwhelming.
Start small. End Big.
Little changes make a big difference.
They add up over time.
And ultimately have more staying power.
Where to start?
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. Breathe in deeply. For five minutes at a time.
Use a random interval timer on your phone to cue change.
Every time you hear it beep – take a full on tech break.
A spa session for the mind.
A hello to the world moment.
A reminder to seek joy.
Out of the fog of technology into the luminescence of reality.
Time to breathe deeply.
To stretch fully.
To grab life by the horns.
Excellent advice. I am always working to be more mindful of this, with varying success. Perhaps, this method might be a good one!
Most excellent! Let me know how it goes Marisa.🍃🌿
Nice idea !
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 💜
Love that the post motivated you to take a mini tech break. Especially considering all of your responsibilities this week. After just a few minutes, I I bet you’ll end up with even more creative ideas than usual. Enjoy your trip!🌷
Wow! An amazing message. I absolutely love this!!
Will definitely be taking this on board 😄
Thanks for the feedback! If anyone knows about being pressed for time.. it’s you! The bonus is that you can also suggest it to change resistant patients. Small successes do wonders for motivation to change.
My pleasure 😊
I will definitely suggest this to change resistant people in the future!
Amazing what great things can happen when we can be conscious of the present moment!
So true! “Snap out of it” is one of my go to mantras. Nothing to fear, right here. All good. 🙃🙂
“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!
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!
My pleasure Kennedy! ☀️
Wow. Such a positive energy. Loved it. Keep it up🖒
Thank you Saba! You sure know how to motivate.💃🎉
I have been on my own journey of uplifting my soul. Your post was really a good read. 👏
Oh how much I love this. I am going to reblog it. Fabulous post.
Thank you! 😊
I love this post so much each time I read it I smile. It makes me happy. thanks for allowing me to share this with my readers today. Happy Monday!
So wonderful! Thank you for sharing your joy. If you could only see my smile, you know how full circle it has come.😊💫
Would you mind if I include this in next weeks “small Steps Up Mountains” post?
Yes please! That would be wonderful.
Thank you for sharing this post! 🙂
You are very welcome Nina.
This is AWESOME! 🙂
I just made an acronym for my name- ALL POSITIVE!
Then I stretched my arms…. and made a deep breathe!
And I FEEL GOOD!
Thank you!!! 🙂
Love it Nina! Thank you for sharing. I can feel your positivity. So infectious! 💃🎉
Well, it was you who initiated the positivity… it infected me first! Lol! 🙂
Boomerang effect in full force! 😊😊
Exactly! Love it! 🙂
I’v been working on this approach, in one way or another, for years. I love the way it’s expressed here, and would be honored to reblog this, with your permission. )
Thank you so much! For your encouragement & for reblogging this post.💫
I’m transitioning to a new website at the moment, but should have it up, with a link back to you, by the end of the week. Thank you for your generosity in sharing.
Firstly, apologies for a long absence. Secondly, thanks for your visits to my place. Thirdly , yes to this! Change in small, incremental steps is sustainable and powerful 🙂
Amen to “Change in small, incremental steps is sustainable and powerful.” Well said! Today I choose to focus on the ground beneath me instead of the air between my ears (aka useless, repetitive thoughts). A small sustainable change that brings so much peace & calm. You? 🌳💚
Same – focusing on the positive and taking small steps to improve my wellbeing 🙂
I had forgotten the one about the positive post it notes to strangers. So easy and fun. I think I’ll do it again!
Go for it JoAnna! The washroom at one of my favourite restaurant has a “You are beautiful.” sticker affixed to the mirror. A small kind gesture that creates a big impact in my day. No matter what. The words get me out of my head and into the heartbeat of the moment. Every single time. (BTW JoAnna you are beautiful. Inside &’out.) 💖💫
Thank you! I will do this! 🙂 ❤
So very timely. In fact I’m sure every single person reading this can benefit from your words. Thank you 🙂
Grateful for your encouragement & affirmation Miriam. Your words always bring a smile to my face. Thank you! 😊
You’re very welcome Andrea.
Wonderful reminders to recognize the big truths about life. Notice and appreciate the current moment, for that is what life is.
Amen Jerry! It’s so tempting to get caught up in planning and wishing for the “big moments in life” but when we do – we lose out on all there is & ever was. This moment. Now.💫
I guess that’s why they call this moment the present. It’s the gift life brings us.
Yes! I just started to realize I need that teck break… strive for positive change. Got it! Working on it. Thanks Andrea! ~Kim
My pleasure Kim! We’re in this tech free time together!
If only for 5 minutes at a time. 💻 + 📱 ➡️ 🌳☀️💃💫
I love the idea of setting phone alarms as a reminder. So often, I think we start out with good intentions about remaining positive but forget throughout the day. Thanks for the idea!
Thank you for adding to this post! You reminded me of the original intention of my blog & my work in general. 🌟💫
Love this i meant to say
Thank you! 💖
A wonderful post, full of so much motivation. I love your statement that little changes can make a big difference. We often get stuck in a rut and feel we can never get out but one small change could be all it takes for us to find our traction to take off on a brand new path. Now – time for me to pick the first small change to be made!
Good luck with the first small change! 🌟💫
Small things definitely add up. That’s one of the main things I learnt this year. Great post 🙂
What fabulous motivation – thank you.
It’s strange how the ‘messages’ flow in when we start a course of action. I’ve recently set up a new 90 Day Habit Changing Challenge linked to a Facebook Community Group to offer support, tips and tools to other people wanting to take up the Brilliance Within 90 day changing habit challenge.
Would you mind if I put a link to this post as it fits perfectly with chunking down small habit changes into taking action every day without fail.. I’d also like to re-blog too if that’s ok?
Thank you so much Wendy!
Please go ahead and reblog and share the link. I would be honoured if you shared my post with your facebook & wordpress readers.
The format for your habit changing program sounds really good. Baby steps -> Flow & long-term sustainability.✅
Brilliant – thanks so much!! I really appreciate it and my favourite saying is ‘A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step’.. I quote it to myself and others often! x
Love this quote! 😊
Just an FYI – links on Facebook & WordPress don’t seem to be working.
Maybe I’m looking in the wrong place?
Me too… Thanks for highlighting the problem with the facebook and wordpress links. You’re right they weren’t working. I’m not sure whether now I’ve gone self hosted, it stops the re-blog from showing up. I could see the start of the post on Facebook but clicking on it just said page not found. The only way I’ve been able to get round it, is to write a blog post and include a reference and link to your post within it. I hope that’s still ok with you but this seemed like the only option.. Hopefully you feel the post I’ve written is an appropriate match to your own post. On facebook, I’ve got a facebook page called Brilliance Within where this will show up too. Thanks again and have a great day xx
Win-win solution! 💚✅
Brilliant – thanks very much Andrea! xx
Very nice post thank you Dr Dinardo.
I love your 15 action points and number 9 is one I think would be a wonderful one to do…
Thanks for participating in the 5 minute change post. I love your # 9 choice Di! ✅💚
You’re welcome Dr Dinardo. It was a lovely post 💐✨
Enjoyed this post. Excellent.
Thank you! 😊
