live_in_the_5_seconds_of_your_life

I was working the other day and wanted to learn more about the 5 second rule, while I had used some of this in my life I wanted to know more.  The video below has one of my favorite people, Lewis Howe, just a down to earth person that I am learning so much from in regards to the people he brings on his show.

The 5 second rule as it is called, worked for me before I even knew the science behind it, when I was playing that same abuse over and over in my head, at one point I would allow my self 5 seconds to think about it, then forced myself to think of something positive like my beautiful son, the candle on the shelf, a song I liked, anything to get the image and thoughts that were negative out of my head.

Sounds too simple, but it works for me and can work for you.

Live in the seconds of your life not the hours

I encourage you to watch the entire video as there was wisdom along the way, Mel Robbins, the woman that wrote the 5 second rule book talks about the science around it but the reason I wanted to share it was because she talks honestly about depression and not being able to take action, almost losing her marriage, her life.

My goal is that you walk away with one thing you can use in your life to have what you want.  Please share any aha moments you had watching this.

Love & Peace,

I always love when I open the right book at the right time or turn on the TV and one of my favorites things in on.  Well, something like that happened today but I wasn’t even looking.  I love that I can cast Youtube from my phone to my bedroom tv, well today I was doing some work on the computer and I wanted to watch some videos about the stuff I love, blogging, marketing, stuff like that, nothing special, but this filled the silence without having to put on music.  Don’t get me wrong, I love my silence but when doing some tasks, this helps.

After watching a video about blogging suddenly one started to play that I think was titled, The best speech ever, secret to self motivation. It talks about the 5 second rule and no, not the one where if you drop that piece of candy on the floor you can pick it up within 5 seconds, if no one saw you, maybe you have 10.

This was about how motivation rarely works but counting down from 5, 4. 3. 2. 1 can and does all over the world.  I had watched something about this earlier in the year and had implemented it, but then like some habits, I just stopped, but it had been working.

It was like my mojo knew I needed this 5 second rule reminder. Now writing this it reminded me that I used this method when I never heard of as I dealt with major anxiety attacks in the past, I would allow my self 5 seconds to change my thoughts, it always worked. Tips to survive an anxiety attack

Please share below if you have used this countdown method to stop anxiety or improve areas of your life. Normally the simple things we feel won’t work.

I strongly encourage you to watch this video, it may be just what you needed to snap into action for things in your life, this will apply to every single area of your life.  The link is below and I embedded the video so you can save another second, and you better know I am counting down, if you do not click the link to watch withing 5 seconds, you never will.

5 seconds to change your life – best speech ever

Love & Peace,
