September 2016 Newsletter
Hello, and a superb September to you!
Welcome, or welcome back, to my newsletter. The photo above was taken
by a friend when I was on stage speaking at an energy workshop.
It seems fitting for September, which has always meant "back to school"
to me. It also means the approach of the autumnal equinox, with its equal
mix of daylight and darkness.
Today's issue has an article on comfort zones, the good and the
possibly not so good.
Is your comfort zone getting a bit too comfortable?
We all want to feel secure. Just like the toddler becomes
anxious if Mom gets too far away, we seek ways to comfort
ourselves. Something as simple as a daily ritual, maybe
preparing that special tea every morning in the kitchen
in our favorite mug, can make us feel safer. Yet, yet, if
every day is exactly the same, might you be playing it
You may not need to jump into something completely new
to shake up your routine a bit, if it's getting stale
and less interesting. Every athlete knows the value
of "changing it up", doing different exercises to target
muscles you've been ignoring with your usual workout. You
might not have to abandon "pumping iron" to go swimming. You
could try running outdoors instead of on the treadmill, or
experiment with one of the newer weight machines. A small
change is better than no change at all!
Be honest with yourself. Are you stuck in a rut with your health,
or your eating habits, or in your career or marriage? If you met
the You of a couple of years ago, would that person seem exactly
the same as you are now? If so, you might not be growing, merely
stagnating. When we connect with someone we haven't seen in a
while, the question is often "What's new?". If your answer is
usually "Same old, same old", you can do better!
People who excel at something instinctively know the brain and body
like novelty. That's the way to keep growing. Albert Einstein,
the genuis mathematician, was a skilled amateur violinist.
Rosey Grier, the manly football player, had needlepoint and knitting
as hobbies. Don't you want to be able to play as many notes on the
scale as you can too? Challenge yourself to try something new,
and be sure to have fun with it!
