Mindset

Good question for a Monday morning…Do you ever feel like your mind isn’t your own and you have to fight it to get into a different mindset?

I have been feeling more and more these days I can just turn my anxiety off in certain situations. It feels like when I’m calm and thinking about my anxiety, I can just turn it off…However when I’m travelling (which is when my anxiety occurs) I just cannot do it…At all…and that’s the most frustrating part of it all.

Do any of you have any tricks? Do you ever find yourself in this situation?

Rats! That’s it really…Rats, so awesome!

I have completely stolen this from ““Cute Overload”” …(check them out for something to make you grin)

I am SUCH  a fan of Rats, I’ve had about 4 throughout my whole life and they are probably one of the most underestimated “pets” in the world. Clearly not those big wild rats, but Rats that are raised for being pets.

I train my pet rats using clicker training and positive reinforcement. Their favorite treats are cheerios, but they also enjoy working for dog treats, peas, and dinner left overs.

My rats are from various sources, if you are interested in getting pet rats, check local spca’s and rats rescues.

 

Resolutions

It is no secret fact that the end of a year, any year, it makes people reflect and look back at the year and decide what they wish to improve on for the new year coming.

Last year what I did was instead of making resolutions for the year coming, I made a list of what I was going to leave behind in the past year. I actually found this was really a lot better than making promises into the future. Mainly because we don’t know what the future holds for us. So instead of promising myself that I would “lose weight” I worked on writing less emo-type posts.

I found that by making promises to myself of what I’m leaving behind, I could concentrate on that. I could work on myself and then I was able to work on things that were thrown at me in my future, things that I didn’t see coming. I have to say that personally it did work for me, so I shall be doing that again. Instead of starting new problems, I decided to work on old issues of mine so that I could leave them behind.

Here are a couple of things that I will be leaving behind in 2015:

  1. Less talking about my ex’s, so I can concentrate on my new partner
  2. Being unproductive and be more proactive on finding a job IN a Library, rather than just having a job.
  3. MORE motivation for meditation!

What are your “tricks” for the New Year? Do you make resolutions, or do you do something else instead, make a goal for the new year?
