5 For Friday!

Here are some tips and tools from the week that have helped our family and team.

5 Second Rule to Overcome Your Challenges: My eldest watched his younger brother jump off the top of the playground yesterday. Not wanting to be out done, he stepped up, looked down and immediately felt scared. No matter, how much I said “you can do it”, he was “stuck”,  I remembered the 5 second rule by Mel Robins! Count down by from 5, “5-4-3-2-1 and blast off!” I explained to him, when you say “blast off” that’s when you jump. Sure enough, it worked! He got a boost of confidence and a new tool. I watched him use the 5 second rule all around the playground as he whispered to himself, “5-4-3-2-1 Blast off!”  I know this concept may seem silly but it works! When you have a thought about something you want, don’t wait, use the 5 second rule to move your body into action!

Exercise : If you’ve gotten a lacrosse ball at our office, there is a good chance you’ve seen this exercise before. It’s our favourite for releasing tight and achy shoulders. You feel more relaxed after this exercise and in less pain. We re-shot the video with better angles and explanations. Hope this helps!
