Keys To Wellbeing: Do You Know Yours?

[Posted April 4th, 2012] by KimRuchAlegant

What are the Keys to Wellbeing? I suppose it depends on what your definition of wellbeing is.  The Merriam-Webster online dictionary defines wellbeing as “the state of being happy, healthy, or prosperous.”  Sounds like a fair definition to me. 

So how do you live a happy, healthy, prosperous life?  We all know how to be healthy-eat right, sleep enough, exercise daily.  Whether we do it or not is a different question, but at least we know what to do, in theory.  If you’re not doing those things, you may need a coach to help you figure out why.

But what about happiness and prosperity?  Those are harder, aren’t they?  Both are a state of mind.  If you don’t have the happiness state of mind, you aren’t going to feel happy.  Same with prosperity. 

How do you get a happy state of mind?  The easy answer is, do things which make you happy.  The problem is that sometimes you don’t even know what makes you happy.  If you are one of those people, take some time and think about what you are doing in your life.

Are you doing anything that brings you joy?  Is there something you do that time just flies by, and you don’t even know it?  I’ve recently started playing the ukulele, and time just disappears when I’m doing it.  I’m not very good yet, but I can’t wait until I am!  I feel the same way about yoga, and sitting on the beach looking at the ocean.

If you aren’t doing anything that brings you joy, chances are you are spending your days feeling totally stressed with no relief in sight.  Eventually this will cause your body to break down, resulting in illness.  The illness is a signal to you that changes need to be made in your life.  You get to choose whether you make changes when the illness is manageable, or whether you will continue on your current path until you are afflicted with a serious illness. Heart attack, stoke, cancer.  Those illnesses can be healed, with a complete life change.

If you don’t know what brings you happy, let’s do some tapping to try and open you up to figuring it out.  If you don’t know how to tap, click here for a video and short instructions.

Karate Chop:  Even though I have no idea what brings me joy, I deeply and completely accept myself.  Even though it makes me really sad that I don’t know that, I accept who I am at this moment.  Even though I’m not happy, I choose to make a different choice in my life starting now.

Eyebrow: I’m not happy
Side of the Eye: I don’t even know HOW to be happy
Under the Eye: That makes me very sad
Under Nose:  But I’m ready to change my life
Chin: I’m open to happiness in my life
Collarbone: I’m open to creating room in my life for what makes me happy
Under Arm: What if I could think of some things to do which make me happy?
Top of Head:  I am ready for this

Take a deep breath.  How are you feeling?  If you are really triggered by this tapping, you should go back and do that again, changing the words as you need to, for your situation.  Once you are feeling some relief, continue to the next tapping round.

Eyebrow:  I am ready to allow happiness into my life
Side of the Eye: I am going to think about what I used to do that made me happy
Under the Eye: I was happy sometimes before
Under Nose:  I can do those things again
Chin: I am making happiness a priority in my life
Collarbone: When I was a kid, I always wanted to ___________
Under Arm: What if I could make that happen now?
Top of Head:  I am open to allowing happiness into my life in many different ways

Keep tapping until you truly do feel open to happiness.  Until you are willing to make a commitment to being happy, you will not make the changes you need to make.

Next week Nancy Richards and I are doing a workshop where we will discuss various Keys to Wellbeing.  More information on that below.  Come and let us help you figure out how to allow wellbeing into your life.


Workshop: Keys to Wellbeing: Tapping Into Laughter & Creativity

[Posted April 4th, 2012] by KimRuchAlegant

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.


Learn How To Play

[Posted June 21st, 2010] by KimRuchAlegant

 At the Turning Passion Into Profits weekend seminar a few months ago, one of the profound (to me, anyway) statements Bob Doyle of Wealth Beyond Reason made was “learn how to play (any by your own rules)”.

 

This really struck me.  Between work, volunteer activities, kids, taking care of the house, yard and pool—where’s the time for fun?  How the heck do adults play, anyway?

 

Is hanging out with friends play?  Going to the gym?  Going to the movies?  Getting drunk?  Going to a concert? Sports? Gardening?  S-e-x?  Going to a party? Going on vacation?  Mountain climbing, hiking, sight seeing?  Reading a book?  What about playing politics?

 

I can safely say that playing with children is literally playing, as well as playing cards, board games and video games.

 

How do kids know how to play?  It comes naturally to them, doesn’t it?  Play evolves as children age.  Babies have a great time playing with a  simple noodle, then become toddlers who play games like stacking blocks (which helps them develop their motor skills and analytical abilities).  And kids just love running around outside, which makes their bodies strong!  But they don’t even realize it.  Why don’t adults do that?

 

So I suppose the answer to “how do adults play?” is that what you consider play is up to you!  You just need to be sure you fit some play into your life, preferably every day or at least every week.

 

The important thing about adult play is how it makes you feel.  If YOU think it’s lots of fun, it’s play to you, right?  Does it reduce stress, or do you feel charged up afterwards?  Activities that do both are important to have in your life.  

 

Yoga makes me feel relaxed, and is play to me.   When I work in my gardens, I sometimes do call it “playing” in my gardens.  I find it very rewarding when something I put in the ground grows and looks pretty.  Now, my kids are growing up and looking pretty too, but I definitely don’t consider that job play!

 

I know that when my kids were smaller, getting the laundry done was an accomplishment.  How was I supposed to make time for play?  If you have small children and you have the means, make sure you play at least once a month.  As the kids get older, bump it up to once a week.  Play doesn’t have to cost money, except maybe for the baby sitter.

 

So, what do you do to play?  Make the time to do it!  It helps you stay sane.

 

 

Here’s some tapping phrases to help you get on the playing track.  Please change the words to fit your specific situation. (Click here to see the tapping points or here to see a tapping demonstration)

 

Karate chop:  even though I don’t have time to play, I love and accept myself.  Even though I don’t remember how to play, I accept who I am and how I feel.  Even though I want to play but have no idea how to find the energy and I don’t remember how, I love and accept myself anyway.

 

Top of head-I don’t have time to play

Eyebrow-I don’t remember HOW to play

Side of the eye-but I want to!

Under the eye-but I don’t have time

Under the nose-my body and mind need to play

Chin-what if I could find the time, once a week or once a month?

Collarbone-I forget how to play

Under arm-maybe I can remember how to play, if I try

Top of head-maybe I can start making time to play

Eyebrow-I’ll bet Bill Gates and Warren Buffett make time to play

Side of eye-I’m willing to make play a priority

Under the eye-thank you universe, for helping me make play a priority in my life from now on
