Everyone gets into habits now and then that can be called “ruts”- same place, same thing- and the feeling of stagnation. To-Shin Do Ninja Martial Arts has age old advice that will help the modern individual better manage stress and move forward to create new possibilities.
- Recognize: be honest with yourself; are you in a rut? Do you have a nagging internal voice that you would like to be better, have more, act with more integrity, and be more aware? Recognizing this inner voice is the first step in the rut breaker. Once this voice has been recognized, you will consciously have a new choice to make- which gives you power.
- What steps can you do today to make a new pattern? Make time to read a good book, carve out 5 minutes to sit in quiet meditation and just breathe, take the time to treat yourself to 20 minutes of fitness. The action step doesn’t need to be big, just consistent. Journaling your new habit and the positive affects you felt while doing your new habit will help solidify the process.
- Be aware of the words you use. Words have power; are you sarcastic? Do you complain to get attention? Do you say you don’t have enough of … Change your speaking pattern and change your outcome
- Meaning behind your movements. For each action, be aware that your intention matches your action. When you say thank you, really mean it. When you give a compliment, do so from the heart in an authentic way. People are more in tune to intention that most would realize so project clear positive intention.
A personal guide or mentor can readily help you get out of your rut and into new and productive habits to generate a full and meaningful life. To-Shin Do Martial Art is the perfect vehicle to help you establish a new routine. Having a good teacher is key- and make sure that the teacher has habits that are congruent to a positive, brilliant life as well.
With dedication and a new energy to fill the void, you, too, can establish productive habits.
