l e only way out is through.







Let's Move!

I was sitting at my desk yesterday and I was stuck. Nothing was flowing or moving the way it should and I was getting more and more frustrated. As usual, the dog was sleeping at my feet, oblivious to everything.

As the thought, 'maybe I'll go for a walk' formed in my mind, she got up, stretched and then shook herself vigorously before doing her usual 'we're going for a walk' dance.

That shake seemed to move her from semi-conscious to bubbling with energy in seconds, so I decided to give it a go! By moving my shoulders and arms in one direction and my hips and knees in the opposite direction and letting my head do its own thing I was able to do a pretty good impression of a doggy shake.

The effect was instantaneous and amazing.

First, it made me laugh at the thought of how ridiculous I must look. Then I realized that I was having fun. And then, I became aware that the energy within and around me had changed dramatically.

Try it yourself (at your own risk!) and see what a difference it makes to your energy level. (If you have a bad back or any other ailment or injury itís best to find another way to boost your energy.)

I suppose the message here is, when youíre stuck, you don't have to stay stuck. Move the energy surrounding you by doing something completely different to the task at hand.

The fact that my dog knew I was going to take a walk almost before I did is for another day!
