Depression, Sadness, Blegh-days, sometimes you just feel a bit crap.
True to Dr Seuss un-slumping yourself is not easily done. That is unless you know a few little tricks of psychology that can make all the difference.
When you’re in a slump, give these 5 tips a go and notice the magical effect they can have on your mood…
Allow yourself to really feel what you’re feeling for 3 minutes. Breathe it in. Be sad. Be angry. Be helpless, whatever you’re feeling and trying to squash down. Most of the time it only takes a few seconds of truly allowing yourself to feel that the emotion passes.
Once you’ve decided you’ve had enough, look up, stand up with your arms and legs out wide in a star shape, and put a big silly grin on your face. You may have to take yourself off to the bathroom, or lock yourself in your office with the blinds closed first.
Breathe deeply, if your arms get tired put them on your hips, wonder woman style.
Imagine breathing in power & calm, sucking it in through your feet from the earth, breathing it in through your lungs in the air, absorbing it in your skin.
Bonus points if you can do this where you get natural light on your face, absorb the power of fire of the sun and ground your feet on the earth, barefoot. Double bonus points if you can get near or in the ocean. just being in nature has dramatic effects on our mood.
If there is a particular event or memory or worry that is working you up, use some NLP tricks to reduce its power. Bring up a picture of the memory, notice where it is in relation to your face. Whether it is big or small, colour or black and white, focussed or defocussed, framed or panoramic, a movie or still photo, how near or far, are you in the picture or looking through your own eyes as if you were living or reliving it?
Now play with these sub-modalities to reduce its effect on you. Take the picture and step out of it, make it a still photo, notice you can see yourself in it. Move it far away from your face, turn it to black and white and defocus it, put a frame around it, and maybe give it a sepia tone like an old faded photograph. Then if it is from your past, move it behind you, far behind you to the horizon. Notice how that shifts how you feel. once the emotion is dissipated, imagine locking it in place like that.
Once the emotion has dissipated, ask your inner wisdom, what can I learn from this? what can I do now in my future having learned from this?
This process uses multiple techniques to help you shift your emotional state from a physiological, hormonal, energetic, and psychological aspect. Give it a go. Un-slumping yourself is easily done, when you know how…
“Having ongoing training is essential for our team and our business. It’s important to look after the people that look after others. Kylie has the experience, professionalism and knowledge to engage with our team and help them understand about human behaviour and why people do what they do. In the wellness and health industry it’s a different sales and service delivery and it’s imperative to keep on top of these understandings to perform at our best to help others. We couldn’t recommend Kylie high enough.”
“I have worked with Kylie over many years. She has helped me as a Business Mindset Coach, as a motivational speaker for my gym clients at both Vision Personal Training & now at Flow Athletic. I bring her in to train my Personal Training teams in mindset, communication and how to coach our clients better and excel in our own personal mastery as fitness leaders. At my recent Fitness Business event, my gym owner colleagues were blown away by her talk, saying she is the best speaker they have ever seen. After every event we always get rave reviews about her talks and training. I highly recommend Kylie’s work as a coach & speaker.”
“I finished the Spiritual Awakening Course yesterday and I found it truly amazing. An incredible next step after our coach training. I feel so much more enlightened and “opened-up”. It has really opened my eyes to the power of the universe and the energy flowing in each of us. I loved it – thank you.
I am feeling so lucky at the moment. So many things are just falling into my lap. I visualise it and set my intention to manifest it and it comes. Things such as getting more clients, needing help to put my business online, not knowing how to get known in my local community etc. Courses / insights / clients have just fallen into my lap at the right time.”
Of course I am still learning and growing, but the course has really helped. Thank you”
“Before I signed up with Kylie I had a busy PT business… I was exhausted and on the brink of burnout and no matter how hard I tried, I had reached a ceiling in my income that I just couldn’t break through. After completing my NLP Coaching certification, I found my true voice and the energy of my business has been completely transformed. I’ve created an online program, up-levelled my entire business and totally smashed my previous income goals. I make decisions more confidently and I can help my clients create change in their life even faster. On a personal level, NLP gave me the inner strength to leave a toxic situation and rebuild myself which lead to me discovering the love of my life! Today I am living the life that I’ve always wanted – but just hadn’t been able to put into words. I have never been this happy or this powerful. If you want to manifest the life of your dreams I would not hesitate to reach out for help from Kylie.”
I signed up with Kylie because I knew that to have a bigger effect as a PT I needed to improve my understanding of how the mind works. Through NLP Coach training I now have great coaching techniques that break through all sorts of negative behaviour patterns. I’ve noticed big improvements in all areas of my life including my own personal finances and my client retention. This has allowed me new freedom to work on scaling my business and helping even more people with less one on one time from myself. The coach training has given me the ability to fully unlock the power of your mindset and those that don’t have this skill are only tapping into a small amount of their potential.
This morning I had a kick-ass coaching session with Kylie Ryan. We’ve been working together for a couple of months, and she’s the perfect person to help me integrate the rapid transformations I go through regularly. I’d been getting this vision of my fully mature creative and entrepreneurial self. His discipline, commitment, and command of wealth was 10x what mine is now, but it wasn’t really about money for him. Our coaching sessions usually roll with me saying, “Kylie, I want to be, do, and have EVERYTHING” and Kylie helping me find the archetypes and parts that aren’t integrated and bringing them together. MAGICK HAPPENS EVERY TIME.
