Sometimes, we spend so much time trying to think through a problem that we just get stuck. Our minds tend to spiral on the same thoughts over and over… not really giving any new information or help.
“What should I do?” is usually followed by an almost endless loop of “What should I do?” Or worse yet, we take action, but then realize that our thinking was more limited than we thought.
There HAS to be a better way, right?
According to Greg Lee and Antonia Van Becker, there is! We just have to shift from listening to our thoughts. It is not shifting to listen to someone else… not a friend, spouse, relative, or even a therapist or coach (OK, you may want to consult with someone else, but that is not the only place).
So, where do you turn? As it turns out, not too far from your mind. Just a bit, ummm, down.
To your body.
Let me freely admit that for lots of years, I chose to NOT listen to my body. I lived from the neck, up. It would seem that one day, my body decided to get my attention. And let’s just say that the resulting mess was painful and scary. But my body got my attention!
Even if I didn’t know how to listen at that moment, I knew I needed to pay attention to it.
Greg and Antonia take it much further. They suggest you can even ask your body for guidance… and your body will, well, guide you.
In this episode of the podcast, Antonia and Greg share what it means to “listen to your body.” And they share 6 steps to follow when you hit a tipping point in your day (or your life).
