What if you oriented your day to that question? What if you opened your eyes, greeted the day and spent a moment before you got out of bed asking yourself “what would feel good today? What would feel good for breakfast? What would feel good to wear today? Who would it feel good to spend time with today?”
What feels good? It’s a pretty radically life-changing question, at least for me. It has changed how I move through life, and even how I see life.
I invite you to try moving through your day oriented toward what would feel good. Be on the look out for what makes you smile, what feels lighter, what feels relaxing, uplifting, enriching or is a “feel-good” in any way. Wake up your feel-good meter! You have one! In the past, you may have been on autopilot – we all have. Maybe you’ve been just dealing with what is in front of you. It might not have occurred to you that you can switch on your “feel-good” detector. Or, that you even have a feel-good detector! But your body will tell you what feels good if you listen. And this is your own, totally personalized way of sensing what foods, places, clothes, conversations, people, colors, words, sounds and activities that light you up!
Whatever you hear your body saying “YES” to, go in that direction! And you can trust your feel-good meter, moment by moment. For example, my body often says “YES!” to chocolate! But after a certain amount, the “yes” factor goes away, telling me to move on to some other feel-good thing. Like maybe a walk, a phone call with a friend, watching a movie, or…….. Moment by moment, your own feel-good detector will guide you.
One of the beauties of orienting yourself toward what feels good is that you realize YOU CAN! You get to chose what is “north” on your compass. You get to chose what you orient to. And another beauty to remember here is this ancient truth: whatever we seek, we find.
