Summary of Podcast:
Recast your Day

(00:36) I have been in the mulligrubs! Earlier this week I had a mulligrub kind of a day. I was feeling off, a bit in a low mood, and in turn I ended up having a day that I really didn’t plan to have! I’m talking #peanutbutterjaruntwists and I am on the couch kind of day!

(1:20) A dear person in my life said to me yesterday, ‘You know ‘D’ you can recast your day at any point.’

(2:58) In this episode we’re going to explore how we can practice recasting our moment or even our day when needed.

(3:50) In either circumstance, experiencing a low mood or being in the midst of an extreme difficulty, allowing others to be a part of our lives or our circumstance is a valuable foundation.

(5:16) I think part of the instinct to withdrawal from people, has a lot to do with our expectations. Modifying the expectations we place upon ourselves, (and the ones we also think others have for us), allows us to begin to feel the freedom to be who we truly are and do what we once doubted.

(7:18) Another form of recasting our moment or mood, is paying attention to our thoughts. I know that our thoughts become habits and CAN be retrained when purposefully attended to.

(9:14) Lastly I have to share that I think we could all use a little more light-heartedness in our lives. I think this keeps life a bit more in perspective.
