Be kind for 5 minutes.

Like they say on the airplane, you got to breath first before helping others. It's true that helping others rock, but when you're stuck it might not feel like an instant gratification like it can normally. But today my friend, think of a micro-helping-hand. Set aside FIVE minutes to do something nice. Micro steps. Pick up your phone and write a kind message to someone, write a recommendation for someone on LinkedIn, connect two people who would benefit from talking to each other. Send a few funny GIFs in a row. Like 10 social media posts with intention. Pick up trash.  You might want to continue doing kind things after, you might not. Regardless after five minutes, you've completed today's...

Dream bigger

I hear you. Already stuck, and I'm asking you to dream bigger?  If money, people or place, was no object, what would you be doing right now?  Start with one category you could dream a little in (house, car, friendship, relationship, job). Get specific. There are no rules, don't let practicality to stop you. No one ever needs to see your list. It's terrifying isn't it?  This is what my ideal house would look like:  - ocean view, but not too close to the ocean for it to be too cool - red door  - light and bright, yet private - welcoming of the sunshine, but not of strangers walking by - an inspiring, modern kitchen - a backyard with...

Get lost in someone else's story for a minute

"Think about something else, it will pass" is such an amazing advice, but impossible to follow. Don't think about the color red and you see the color red EVERYWHERE. So let's try this. Let's set a timer for 20 minutes, put your phone away, and read an interesting book.  Don't have an interesting book? Here are some of my faves. My best advice: get a kindle, get a library card and download many books at the time. And you know what? Don't finish a book if you don't like it. Life is too short.

Tried everything and want to give up?

That sinking feeling. I know. When you have done everything you can possibly think of to get unstuck, but feeling is still there. Give this a shot. Start writing this following statement until you're green in your face. I know you might not want to do. But give it a try. (I wrote the following, I didn't copy/paste) Something wonderful is always on the verge of happening  Something wonderful is always on the verge of happening Something wonderful is always on the verge of happening Something wonderful is always on the verge of happening Something wonderful is always on the verge of happening Something wonderful is always on the verge of happening Something wonderful is always on the verge of...

Brush your teeth?

One of my dear mentors always said: brush your teeth. I remember thinking, seriously? But honestly, sometimes it's all it takes to create some momentum (and sometimes it takes more). But do me a favor, walk over to that sink and just brush your teeth right now. Need some entertainment while you brush? Thank you for taking one small step.  Watch the clip below:
