Focus. I've been thinking about this word a lot lately. Mostly because I'm a therapist and one of the techniques I have found myself using with client's lately is cognitive refocusing. It has really made me think about my own focus and how I choose to spend my thoughts. Do I spend the evening worrying about work and being grumpy or choosing to lock those thoughts in the filing cabinet in my brain and move on to something inspiring?
Do you ever get in a mental jam? That place you find yourself sometimes where it seems like nothing is going the way it should, its raining outside, and you realize that there are still four more days until the weekend? I think we've all been there. When this happens we have some choices to make... Different things that we can do to pick ourselves out of that funk.
I want to choose to refocus on whats important everyday. To do all the things that remind me how good life is! To take some pictures of the sunshine.
Paint my nails or put on a favorite outfit.
Listen to my favorite music or read something inspiring like this. Kelle Hampton always helps me to refocus.
Splinter on my lap.
Or bake something yummy.
