Postponement of Play, Pleasure, and Joy Causes Disease
People are postponing play and pleasure more and more than ever before. "After the kids grow up, after I complete my chores, after, after..." Postponement of joy, pleasure, and play is a major contributing factor to disease formation. It carries with it an air of "I am not enough" and "I am not entitled to enjoy my life until I suffer first."
Joy and Energy Builders
This exercise is simple but profound. On one side of a piece of paper, list your joy and energy builders. These are the things that light you up, give you mental or physical energy, and bring a joyful, content smile to your face.
Joy and Energy Robbers
On the other side of the paper, list your joy and energy robbers.
Make a Commitment
Sit in quiet contemplation as you review your list. Make a commitment and decide what you will add, eliminate, or release in the days and weeks to follow.
