Taking care of our bodies is something we all know we should be doing. Doing it, however, sometimes falls off our priority list. These gentle reminders are meant to keep you on track or help you get back on track.

Ep120: Do Something Different

Breaking the patterns of sameness is a quick and easy way to add a bit of magic to your day. Try one of the examples I offer or come up with your own ideas.

This morning I drove to the grocery store. I typically park at the distant end of the lot.

Today, because it was cold and extremely windy (and my hair was wet), I parked closer to the entrance. It felt really weird.

When I stepped into the store, I didn’t feel like I was quite ready to be there. I felt like I had arrived at a party too early. My timing was off. My steps were off.

Just as weird was leaving the store. I wasn’t even looking for my car when I was already beyond where I had parked.

Oops!

Doing something different can be super simple and yet feel somewhat challenging. Give it a try!

Donna Doyon - Finding My Way - Positive Affirmations

Ep114: What’s the Focus of Your Daily Affirmations?

Every day, throughout the day, you make statements to and about yourself.

Are these statements serving your growth and well being or are they keeping you in a state of negative reality?

Learn how changing your words, can change your outcome.

Now if your first thought is, “Daily affirmations are stupid. I don’t believe they can change anything about my life.”

I invite you to consider “what if…”

Remember the mindset work we’ve been doing?

A fixed mindset says “Nothing can or will change.” And if you are satisfied with your life as it is, you’re right, you don’t need to change anything.

But…

If you are not satisfied… a growth mindset invites you to become curious. To play. To experiment.

So ask yourself, “What if writing out positive daily affirmations actually works? What if by changing what I am thinking, I can change how I am feeling? What if by changing how I am feeling, I can change what I am doing? What if by changing what I am doing, I can change the direction of my life?”

That WHAT IF question is powerful!

Are you willing to give it a try? Even if you feel silly, out of your element, or even stupid for doing it?

A growth mindset says, “Sure. I’ll give it a try. You can’t win the lottery if you never buy a ticket.”

Donna Doyon - Finding Peace in the quiet

Ep113: Finding Peace in the Quiet

“All I want is some peace and quiet!”

We claim to want it, but yet we don’t allow it into our lives.

In fact, most of us never even extend the invitation.

This week I talk about meditation and how it continues to help me find my way.

Release - My One Word for 2019

Ep107: Choosing One Word as a Lens to Your World

What’s your “One Word”?

Have people in your world been talking about “One Word”?

They sure have been in mine.

They’ve been talking about it for weeks.

I didn’t know it was a “thing” until last year when a new friend told me about it.

I had created themed years before, but hadn’t refined the practice to a single word.

The practice is the same: Use your word/theme as a lens or filter for everything that happens in your life. You look for experiences where the word/theme develops and challenges you to become a better version of yourself.

You think you are headed in one direction and the Universe will take you in directions you never imagined!

It’s really pretty cool. 🙂

And that’s what this week’s episode is all about. Let me know what you think and if you will pick “One Word” for 2019.
