What Do You Mean By ‘Practice’?
What Do You Do For Your Practice?
Here is a daily body confidence practice to try:
Choose one of these for a minimum of 5 minutes
That’s it. 7 to 15 minutes. Let’s talk from now on about 10 minutes for the sake of simplicity.
The above practices you do in one block of time (at the start of the day preferably).
What If I Have No Time?
Wouldn’t it be great if I had some quick ‘n easy answer to this?
Spoiler alert: I don’t.
If you don’t do your practice, Cavebrain will be on alert.
If you do your practice, Cavebrain will be calmer and happier.
That seems to me to be something worth prioritising.
So the question is not: What if I have no time?
The question is: How do I make those 10 minutes a priority?
A good way to do this is imagine Marty McFly and Doc Brown bursting into the room right now and saying “Jeez, we’re sorry but we’ve messed up the space time continuum real bad (it’s worse than Back To The Future part 2, and we all know what a pile of doggy doo da THAT was)"
Somehow we’ve gone and lost 10 minutes from every day. The ten minutes will disappear from each day at the same time: ...... O’clock (now insert a time that you are at home and awake and not at work. For example I might say 7.50 to 8am)
Exit Marty and Doc.
If you really did lose 10 minutes every day, and knew it in advance, you would work around it, wouldn’t you? You’d still get all the important stuff done.
Good news! I’m giving you those ten minutes back.
Use them wisely. Use them to calm Cavebrain down.
What To Do On This Date
First of all, decide when you can take 10 minutes every day to do the meditation/relaxation audio plus theta plus role models practice block (suggested time: 10 minutes).
Next, print off or copy out the practices record. I have created both Word and PDF versions for you here:
Now do as many of the practices on the sheet as possible right now to give yourself the best start.
Make a note in your diary of the time you are going to do the 10 min practices block every day.
