One moody day (I was moody not the sky), I sat at my laptop and remembered how much I enjoyed writing and knew that an easy pick me up in that moment would be to just write one of the 1000 of posts on my mind, without any great agenda or without worrying about how it was going to land.
So I did. And then I got my little dopamine hit from doing so - noted that and let that propel me into writing another frank post and another.
If you have any addictive tendencies or you're someone that watches out for patterns or strategies - use this to your advantage. Find a way to make that work for you rather than against you.
I deal with anxiety, bouts of depression, intense brain fog, fatigue and memory issues because of autoimmune disorders, vitamin and mineral imbalances and more [all of which I'm working to remedy and will by the way] and when I'm having a flare up life is like pulling teeth.
The silver lining is that I am constantly adding to my 'toolkit' things that break destructive cycles, uplift me, shift me out of modes etc. I become my own clinical observer. And then I use my experience and knowledge to help my clients too - win win.
I've trained myself to force myself into taking action on something that I know will benefit me - sometimes as little as brushing my hair, walking outside, putting on music - even when I am so flat that just existing feels like effort. 95% of the time this works and then when my soul wakes up a little I do some more and then more.
When I have a light bulb moment - if you do X when you are feeling like Y then this always makes you feel great - I file this information away and use it.
The secret is that the action does have to come from a place of joy. When you are struggling mentally, physically or otherwise - a joy based intention is more important than anything else.
What's your highest valued joy based driving factor in business and life?
