Easy Busy

When you get a B.E.S.T. treatment, your B.E.S.T. practitioner gives you a series of words; these words are always positive feelings. When your treatment is over, you leave with a piece of paper that has those words on it. The piece of paper is a party favor for taking care of yourself and a reminder: in between treatments, it's good for you to feel those positive feelings.

Lately, I've been getting the feeling "exact" a lot. I can get down with feeling exact, sometimes it seems like the opposite of indecisive or an antidote to vagueness and I know and being vague or feeling indecisive can completely frazzle me. This time around with exact, I decided to get exact about my intention for each day.

About a year ago, an acquaintance of mine wrote an article for The New York Times blog about what he called "The Busy Trap." As I recall, he talked about the "over-glorification of busy"  and how being busy actually isn't that cool. I've thought about that article quite a bit since reading it, and speaking of feelings, I have had a lot of different ones about being busy.

Recently, I've been getting stressed out about being busy. When I know a super busy day is coming up, I anticipate it, "Oh, Gosh, here comes that busy one," I think to myself. This morning when I noticed a first glint of feeling anxious about how jam-packed today is, I cancelled it with today's top-notch and totally exact intention: "Although today is busy, I'm going to let it be easy." Ahhhhh.
