Procrastination and Laughter

[Posted March 14th, 2012] by KimRuchAlegant

Say what? What do procrastination and laughter have to do with each other? Well, I’m inviting you to notice the next time you are procrastinating, and laugh at yourself! That’s how. Of course, since I am a tapping and energy work person, I’ll give you some of that too. But when I am leading a laughter yoga session, sometimes I have people laugh at their aches and pains, do angry or frustration laughter, laugh at a bill that comes in the mail, or simply laugh at themselves. So, if we can laugh at those things, why not laugh at procrastination?

Laughter changes the energy of any situation, even if it is “fake” laughter from doing laughter exercises. Laughter yoga is “fake it ‘til you make it” or just keep faking it if you don’t. Your body can’t tell the difference, and you feel better afterwards due to all those endorphins and serotonin etc. So, next time you catch yourself procrastinating, take a moment (or ten) and laugh! (for more on laughter yoga, click here)

So why do people procrastinate? Oh so many reasons. Oh so many issues we could tap on. But I know when the weather is gorgeous outside like it is here in Philadelphia, sometimes you just don’t feel like working. You feel like enjoying the beautiful weather outside, even if our winter wasn’t very harsh this year. (Amen for that! Sorry Europe.)

If it’s the weather that’s making you not want to work, can you give yourself a few hours to get outside and enjoy the weather? Hey, as long as you’re not blowing any deadlines or forgetting to pick up the kids, is there any harm in taking a few hours to smell the daffodils? I think not. We are here on this planet to enjoy life. Make sure you are taking the time to do it. I don’t consider this type of procrastination a problem, unless it is happening every day.

However, there is procrastination that is sabotage, and that kind of procrastination is better nipped in the bud. Procrastination from sabotage is not starting a project (or finishing it) because of fear of failure, fear of success, fear of putting yourself out there, fear of getting out of your comfort zone…I could go on.

It’s best if you can identify WHY you are sabotaging. This is where your friendly neighborhood coach comes in. (Shameless self-promotion here) Call me if you know you are sabotaging but don’t know why, or can’t fix it yourself! Hey-professional athletes use coaches for their entire careers. Why shouldn’t you? Moving on…

Let’s do some general tapping on procrastination (due to sabotage, not nice weather). You will be better off personalizing it for you, or calling me so we can do it together. But this will get you started. (f you don’t know how to tap, click here)

Karate Chop: Even though I am procrastinating AGAIN, I deeply and completely accept myself. Even though I just can’t seem to get stated, I accept who I am and how I feel. Even though I can’t see how to fix this, I choose to make changes starting today.

Eyebrow: I just can’t get started (or I can’t get it finished)
Side of the Eye: I’m so frustrated with myself
Under the Eye: What is wrong with me?
Under Nose: I don’t want to get it done, apparently
Chin: But I really do want to
Collarbone: I keep sabotaging myself
Under Arm: What if I could stop doing this to myself?
Top of Head: I am ready to move on

Take a deep breath. Check in. How are you doing? Are you feeling better or worse now? Nothing at all? Not specific enough. Can you do some more specific tapping? If you are feeling some relief, move on to the next sequences. If you still need more work, you should tap more on YOUR particular issues before moving on.

Eyebrow: I am ready to stop procrastinating
Side of the Eye: I do want to finish that project
Under the Eye: I will feel so good when it is finished
Under Nose: I will be able to move on to bigger and better things when it is finished
Chin: I love finishing my projects
Collarbone: I can feel the celebration already
Under Arm: I am finished!
Top of Head: After I celebrate, I can think about my next great thing!

Take another deep breath. Are you ready to get on that task and complete it? Or, at least take the next step. What is the saying-the journey of a thousand miles begins with the first step, or something like that. Take the first step towards completion. It will make the next step that much easier. Use laughing and tapping liberally as needed. Take time to relax and dream/meditate/pretend about completing the task. Call if you need me.


What Stops You From Following Your Dreams?

[Posted February 21st, 2012] by KimRuchAlegant

What are your dreams?   If you are on a self-discovery path, you can probably rattle these off pretty quickly.  If you can’t rattle them off quickly, your first step is to spend some time daydreaming to remember what your big dreams were when you had them.  I’m giving you permission to be selfish here.  What are your dreams FOR YOURSELF?  While world peace and food on every table are valiant dreams, you can’t change the energy of each and every person on this planet.  I want you to focus on the dreams that you want for yourself personally.  Is it material objects?  New car?  Shore house?  iPad?  Independent wealth? Is it health?  Is it a fulfilling relationship?  Children?  What’s your big dream?

Take a few minutes and write down your biggest personal dreams.

Now that you’ve gotten in touch with your big dreams, take a few moments to ponder why you aren’t pursuing them.  We’re going to do some tapping on this. It would be helpful to write down some notes so you can tailor the tapping to your situation.  If you gave up on your dreams, when did that happen?  Why?  Do you believe your dreams are attainable?  If so, why?  If not, why not?

Let’s do some tapping about this: (don’t know how to tap? click here)

Karate Chop:  When though I haven’t achieved my biggest dreams yet, I deeply and completely accept myself.  Even though I’ve given up on my dreams, I’ll never get them, I accept who I am and how I feel.  Even though I’m not sure I can ever have my dreams, I choose to look at things differently now.

Eyebrow:  I haven’t achieved any of my big dreams.

Side of the Eye: What’s wrong with me?

Under the Eye: Why can’t I have my dreams?

Under Nose:  It’s not fair that they’ve done it and I haven’t

Chin: I’m never gonna get my dream

Collarbone: Why do I even bother to think about it

Under Arm: It’s too big

Top of Head:  But what if I could change my energy around this?

Take a deep breath.  Drink some water.  Check in with yourself.  Are you feeling some relief, or are you feeling worse now?  You may want to go back through the tapping points and tap on the reasons you gave up your dream.  This may take some time, and you may need to do the tapping more than once.  Tapping can be an instant fix, or it can take lots of tapping to make progress on an issue, so don’t give up.  You don’t stop brushing your teeth just because you have to do it every day.  Think the same way about your tapping.

When you are feeling some relief, continue on to the next round of tapping:

Eyebrow: Anyone can have their big dreams

Side of the Eye: Others have done it, and I can too

Under the Eye: What if I could match my energy to my dreams?

Under Nose:  Maybe I can draw my dreams to me

Chin: I’m willing to release my resistance to my dreams

Collarbone: I’m starting to be open to the idea that I can have my dreams

Under Arm: I’m willing to take the first step towards my dreams

Top of Head:  After I take the first step, I’ll take the next step.  I can achieve my dreams one step at a time.

Now, lather, rinse, repeat.  You can have your dreams.  But if you are convinced that you can’t, you need to make some shifts in your energy.  There are many ways to shift your energy, and one way to do that is through laughter.  That’s why I created the Manifest Your Dreams with Laughter Yoga workshop.  Consider coming to help you draw your dreams into your life!
