5 Ways To Reduce Stress By Elevating Small Moments
We all have a million things on multiple to-do lists and it never feels like we have enough hours in the day to do what we really want anymore, right?
Do you immediately burst into laughter or go straight-faced when someone tells you to “take a spa day” or “have a night out for some you” time because you’re thinking, “when the heck do I have time for that?!”
If so, we’ve got a trick that we use all the time… it’s called elevating small moments.
Not sure what that means? Don’t worry, we’re about to explain…
Elevating small moments is where you take a moment of your day that feels small, irrelevant, and maybe even a bit boring (such as doing the dishes, folding laundry, or driving around doing a million errands from your to do list before taking your kids to one of their hundred different activities) and making it enjoyable.
These tasks can feel repetitive, pointless, and heavy over time if we let them. They increase stress because we begin to think these are the things our life is based around instead of chasing our actual dreams… But another option is to make them your favorite moments of the day.
Here’s how… ever open the window on a warm day while you’re doing dishes just to feel the breeze on your face? That’s elevating a small moment.
Ever put music on while folding laundry to make the time go faster? That’s elevating a small moment.
Elevating small moments is taking a mundane task and making it magical and we’ve got a list of five in particular.
Here's 5 ways to elevate a small moment to help reduce stress and make your life feel more intentional, stress-free, and something you're in control of...
1) Washing your hands
2) Eating over your sink when you're in a hurry
3) When you're cooking
