I recently did a course on personal / life coaching.
I'm now working on myself.
Instead of telling myself "I'm too busy" I'm experimenting with saying "I have a full and interesting life. I'm involved in a lot of activities which are enjoyable or important or useful".
It takes a bit longer though which is not an advantage when one is too busy.
Instead of saying "I have too much to do" I try to say "I can prioritise and choose what to do next".
still longer tho.....
(but I did finally make the time to upgrade to new blogger!)
And instead of saying "I must do some housework this weekend" I am saying "I'll sit and read a book".
Which is shorter, so maybe I will succeed.
Here are some other good short phrases which I am practising:
- that can wait
- housework is overrated
- ...and relax.
- they don't pay me for this
- I deserve it
- life is too short
- stop and breathe
