Hey everyone! My name is Alisha Leytem and I'm super excited to share this super-cool mindfulness practice that you can do every single morning in less than a minute, that can make a really big difference in your day. If you are someone who is a busy person, you have a lot going on, you might not have a whole 30 minutes even, 15 minutes in the morning.
To sit down, get quiet, meditate, breathe, journal, do the things that you know can be really helpful. You may only have like 2 minutes max. The kids get up, you have to run out the door, your emails are flying in, you need to get on with your day. But you would like to just take a moment to tune in and be more mindful about the day.
If there's one practice that can have a really big impact throughout the rest of your day that only takes a couple of minutes in the morning then this is the tool for you. What it is the tool itself? It's pulling an affirmation card in the morning.
What's really cool is that it's been proven that saying an affirmation, or also known as positive statement, out loud radically improves your mood. So this is how you do it.
I have my deck of affirmations that are from my book call The Six G.O.L.D Keys to Well-Being and at the end of each chapter in the book. I have a list of affirmations to help you align with that key that you're working on to unlock your own well-being.
So what we've done is my beautiful graphic designer, she is an artist and her name is Caitlyn Alford. She designed all of these cards for us. It’s super simple, like I said it takes a minute.
What you want to do is put your cards into your non-dominant hand and put your dominant hand on top. Just close your eyes, take a deep breath, and just say your name. Alisha, what do I need to lean into today? What is a message for me?
You can even make this part of a prayer to your higher power like the universe, God, angels. What do I need to know today? What statement can help me go about my day as my highest self and feeling into the wholeness of the truth of who I am?
So once you do that you just shuffle them and you trust that whatever card you got is your operation for the day. Now when you're shuffling, this is important, when you're shuffling the cards if a card flies out and falls on the floor, that is your card.
If there are a couple of them, those are your cards. If not, just keep shuffling until your intuition says I feel like this is the card.
This is what just happened, I pulled out a card. This card says happiness is a choice and I choose it now. Happiness is a choice and I choose it now.
This is actually an affirmation from the 6th key in my framework called the key of intention. So this is super powerful. Now that you have your card and affirmation you use this as your guiding north star throughout your day.
All day long. Happiness is a choice and I choose it now. I'm choosing this. This is a choice. I get to decide that today is going to be a happy day. So what I personally like to do is keep this card that I just pulled right on my desk, right in front of my computer. Then I look at it all day long and I remember it.
You can also put this in front of your mirror in your bathroom throughout the day. You can put it in your car on the top of your mirror or in your dashboard where you are going to be able to see it regularly. And just come back to it.
So this is our message for the day and this is a super simple tool that you can use each and every day that's going to make a really big difference. Now while I have you I'm going to pull a card from another deck that I think you guys will like.
This deck is called the Affirmators. It's 50 affirmation cards to help you heal yourself without the “self-helpiness.” I really like to introduce these this deck of affirmation cards to people who are brand new to it too
So this card we just pulled says spontaneity. Do you like spontaneous adventures at the highest caliber? The only acceptable answer to this question is yes. So buckle up Charlie. You're about to take a wild ride about the unexplored, unconventional, and underrated. You're about to learn that yes is a magic word with the power to unlock new dimensions and time, space, and after-hour hangouts. Yes will lead you to experience that you didn't think was possible and teach you that lifelong friendships are sometimes lurking just behind a karaoke singer's mullet.
I would use this card as an okay, I'm supposed to take the leap and say “yes” today. I'm going to allow myself to say “yes” even when I don't exactly know what it's going to lead me into. I just feel like that call and that pulls into the “yes.”
This is actually a really cool segway into what I want to share with you guys now. If you've been following us on LinkedIn or on our email newsletter list. You will see that we just released a new course based on our book The Six G.O.L.D Keys to Well-Being.
What we've done is we are taking this course into a year-long program that incorporates our modules of the course, monthly coaching with me, and a community aspect to help you really dive into unlocking these keys for yourself over the course of 12 months together.
I'm super excited to announce that this program is called The Resilient Reset: Your Well-Being Promotion. I'm just so excited for this. So basically what we're doing is we are opening up the 10 founding members spots at a very low price for people to to join us and to enroll. We're going to be recording the modules live for anyone who signs up before Wednesday, November 24th.
So if you enroll by then, then you'll be able to join the recordings live and after we have each module recorded live then they're going to live in the portal, where you can access at any time on your own time throughout the rest of the year.
You’ll get ongoing coaching from me and so many resources. Each of the coaching sessions are going to begin with mindfulness training, practice, and tools. This might be a new tool that I give you, such as I just did today, to enhance your mindfulness skills.
And help you really learn how to become more calm, learn how to relax, learn the skill of regulating your nervous system, learn the skill of choosing happiness, learn the skill of making your well-being a priority.
