Good For You Notes-Instant ...
Concierge Jo-Anna~Lifestyle Checklist Something For The Body If you are not fit & healthy, you are useless to yourself & your entourage! Take 30 minutes a day & work your body. Your endorphins & your tush will give you such a lift! Something For The Mind If you are not calm & receptive, you can’t tackle & conquer the challenges! It doesn’t matter if it’s yoga, dancing, prayer, playing with your kids or pets, gardening, learning something new or sharing your knowledge…whatever will distract you, center you, encourage deep breathing & connect you to something bigger than you are! Something For A Stranger Along the lines of ancient tithing, giving things away, or helping someone when there’s nothing else in it for you, especially when you’re frightened or nervous about your own life, puts things in perspective & empowers you! Something For Weaker Creatures Taking care of your children and/ or animals is a joy that requires some maintenance, but there are great rewards & it almost always improves clarity & lowers your blood pressure! Something For Your Home This is one of my favorites because, as a hyperactive woman, I relax when I putter. As a result, my home is lovely, & I have a great distraction when my thoughts are too scattered! One caveat though, you can get too absorbed in the details…& use projects to procrastinate, so be watchful! Something For Your Business-Or Other Pressing Obligation Business & responsibilities are like everything else in life-it takes work, and, it’s never “done”! The key, I believe, is to make it as pleasurable & fun as possible! A glass of wine at a working lunch, working outdoors, lovely surroundings, candles with positive aromatherapy for productivity: coriander, peppermint & rosemary. Something For A Friend We all forget that everyone needs help sometime. Productive grown ups usually get forgotten! I know that most of my life, I never appeared to need help-even when I really did! So seek out those rational adults & catch up over dinner. You might find they’re in need of a lifeline & you might be too! Something For The Soul Any higher power will do. No matter what your belief, if you have done everything you can, help will come in the most unexpected ways. And, it’s a great relief to relinquish total control! Something For The Future Everyone needs a dream, I don’t care how old you are, or where you are in life! Without something to plan for, life can be dreary & depressing in the everyday must-do! Pick something that is reasonably attainable, so you won’t set yourself up for disappointment. And, break it down into manageable pieces, whether it involves time, money or discipline. It will make you feel accomplished, connected & vibrantly involved with your life! *Property of Concierge Jo-Anna @ Corporate Caretaking®~All Rights Reserved*
