Self-esteem coach and author of Feel Good Naked, Laure Redmond joined us to help us get jiggy! In the early 1990's jiggy took on the new meanings "wonderful, excellent, enjoyable, exciting, stylish" … Actually, jiggy can refer to anything that's very cool, hip or desirable. In these times of worry, fret, depression and fear, it’s the perfect time to take a break from the darkness and focus on your jiggy appeal instead. One great benefit of enhancing your personal jiggy is the possibility of attraction and romance. Cause let’s face it – if you feel excellent, the world is your oyster and anything is possible. So have some fun with these steps and pay attention to what you attract.
- Stop thinking that money will make you happy because it won’t. In fact, the very things society has taught us to crave since the 1980’s --- wealth, status, prestige, lots of things --- can actually lead to persistant feelings of depression and dissatisfaction.
- Eliminate the most egregious offenders in the supermarket from your shopping cart. Some are conspicuous calorie bombs, others are junk food masquerading as healthy food, but they all have one thing in common: They'll undermine your efforts to feel great.
- Shift your mental focus from weight frustration to attaining optimum health and self-care.
- Instead of seeking happiness, focus on freedom from unhappiness. Do so by facing what truly IS rather than making up stories about it.
- Create a wardrobe that reflects the message you want to give out. If you are sick and tired of being seen as only a “mom”, wear red lipstick when you go out. If you have no idea what pants size you wear anymore, take off the elastic waistband clothing and instead, wear something that includes a zipper.
- Learn to sit with the discomfort that often comes from speaking your truth. Otherwise, your body will be in a constant state of tension and probably suffers from chronic pain and problems.
- Find a CD that made you really happy, even giddy, when you were younger. Whether it’s Earth, Wind & Fire, Sister Sledge or Blood Sweat and Tears – turn it up!
- You do not become good by trying to be good, but instead, find the goodness that is already within you and allow that goodness to emerge.
