I found a FANTASTIC excerpt in Dale Carnegie’s ‘How To Stop Worrying & Start Living’ book that I promised my podcast listeners I would deliver in writing. So, here are 5 steps on how to avoid fatigue and continue looking young!
Keep a notebook or scrapbook for “inspirational” reading. Into this book you can paste all the poems, quotations and other things that appeal to you personally and give you a lift.
When a raining day comes, and it will, you’ll be able to pull this out and use it as a “spiritual shot” in the arm. Even having that video, like when Wyclef Jean or Preston Smiles spoke on Tom Bilyeau’s Impact theory, would help me. Have that video, that book, that “something” which will help you snap out of “it.”
Don’t dwell too long on the shortcomings of others! One woman at the class who found herself developing into a scolding, nagging, and haggard-faced wife, was brought up short with the question: “What would you do if you husband die?” She was so shocked by the idea that she immediately drew up a list of all her husband’s good points.
Things happen in life, and because they do, we’re either too hard on ourselves, or we just sit in a puddle of sorrow, complaining about why THAT person did you wrong. Snap out of it and write down on a piece of paper why you’re so grateful for it taking place to begin with.
Get interested in people! Develop a friendly, healthy interest in the people who share your life.
Remember I had a recent podcast (I’ll post it below this entry) about how to get over depression in fourteen days? The biggest key with depressed souls is that they’re too focused on their personal wants; rather than the wants of other people.
Make up a schedule for tomorrow’s work before you go to bed tonight. The class found that many people feel driven and harassed by the unending round of work and things they must do.
I wake up every morning banging out to-do-lists, but this is a list of things that I absolutely love to do. If we move forward to let’s say a disgruntled colleague, the best thing to do is to email whoever you have to an hour before you go to sleep and detox your mind immediately following that. It’s best doing that than losing a full night of sleep.
Avoid tension and fatigue by RELAXING!
