Adding Joy to Your Life When Feeling Down

ABC Method

The holidays bring about many different feelings and emotions.

For some, this is a season filled with joy and happiness, for others though it can be a difficult, lonely time of year.

If you find yourself feeling down or, for lack of a better word, blah, think of my simple ABC method.

  1. Accomplishments
  2. Blessings
  3. Catalysts

It works like this, you make three lists.  One labeled Accomplishments, the second Blessings, and third, Catalysts.

Next I want you to write down any accomplishments you achieved recently.  This could be anything from increasing your revenue to a simple thing like perfecting your apple pie recipe or perhaps you’ve increased your fitness level.  These past “woo hoo moments” are a wonderful way to remind yourself of the joy and success you’ve experienced through hard work.

The Blessings list pays homage to what you are currently thankful and grateful for.  Were you able to provide a wonderful Thanksgiving meal for your family?  Are your children happy and healthy?  Did you get to spend time with an old friend?  Do you have a great group of team members that help support your business?  All of those go on your list.

My favorite part of this exercise is the C list.  First, what a cool word, “Catalyst.”  It means “something that incites activity.”  That’s exactly what we’re going for to help jump start you and get you out of any rut you may be in!  What are you looking forward to or are excited about?  For me, I would list things like: Helping more business owners grow and accomplish their goals by creating a life and business they truly enjoy, Continue on my journey of improved health by working out 5 days a week and on a daily basis to practice being “in the moment”, especially when sharing time with my little man, DJ.

After completing this exercise, I promise you will be re-energized and ready to take on the world.  So when in doubt remember your ABCs… Accomplishments, Blessings, and Catalysts.

If you feel so inclined please share your ABC list with us in the comments below!
