Posted Jun 07 2010 7:59am
In my 14 years of working with entrepreneurs and soloprenuers, I realized that they would like to learn how to slow down and smell the roses. However, they always seem to pick ways that cost them a bundle of money.
One way to do this is by going on an exotic holiday. Depending on your financial situation you can put the holiday on your credit card or you can save for that holiday.
But what do you do in the meanwhile?
Where can you find opportunities to stop and slow down on a regular basis? Well, your wish is my command.
Here are three terrific very low cost secrets to enjoying stress relief and really touching someone or making a wonderful connection.
And unlike what you may have been conditioned to think, these simple exercises won’t break the bank, but maybe put money IN the bank.
And more surprisingly, you can find these exercises in the line at the checkout counter.
Compliment a person
Have you been in a hurry and are about to leave the store with a couple of items, however, when you get to the checkout counter there is a long line up?
Here is your chance to stop and take a break. Life gives us these wonderful opportunities ever so often.
Be genuine when you compliment the person in front or behind you.
This could be the first positive comment that person might have heard for the day.
Start a conversation:
You could alternatively start a conversion about the weather. The secret is to keep the conversation positive. So if the person starts to complain about the weather- you could say something like “if this line was not so long we would have never met. What do you do for a living?” Be creative, you’ll come up with something.
The customer in front of you is short 24 cents for the bill…pay it.
You’re in the line and you are talking to the person beside you only because the quick check out is slow and there is a long line.
So you have this amazing conversation going and as your friend is about to check out they are 24 cents short. Here is an opportunity for you to help out unconditionally, because chance are you’ll never meet that person again.
Think of all the positive energy and great feeling that person will have for the balance of the day.
You got a chance to slow down and relieve stress.
One of the biggest obstacles that prevent entrepreneurs and solopreneurs from finding opportunities to take a break is that they are too busy.
I hope I have helped to change your thinking. When you realize how simple and easy it is to relieve your stress on a daily basis, you will look forward with excitement to search and find more opportunities to have fun each day.
