#SoCS – The power of the little voice

How do you start your day? You know the bit when you are just coming out of sleep but not quite awake? Is your inner voice already up and at it? What’s the tone of the little voice? Does it sound positive, full of possibilities for a great day ahead? Or is it already listing things that could go wrong?

“Urgh! Another day in the office! I hate the commute!”

“I’ll bet all the parking spaces are gone!”

And so it happens. The traffic is a nightmare, with nobody letting you filter in to join the queue. That makes you late for work, so of course, all the decent parking spaces are gone. By the time you make it to your desk, you’re feeling Monday Morningish, all day.


We could rewind and start like this.

“I am calm and content with the flow of life.”

“I enjoy listening to the radio on the way to work.”

There’s nothing quite so effective in setting up your day in a pleasant frame, than a couple of positive affirmations. It may not change the state of the commute, but it will change your attitude towards it, keeping your stress hormones nice and low. Who knows, you might hear your all-time favourite tunes while you wait. So take advantage and sing along, play the steering wheel bongos, and if the traffic is really bad, let loose the air-guitar! It will make you feel better and entertain the other commuters. Just remember to be safe!

Wishing you all a zen Saturday.

  1. For over 40 years, I have gotten up an hour early so I can beat the traffic, get the good parking space, and start my day with a quiet accomplishment. Looking forward to not having to deal with all the negatives, has made my life easier, despite the extra hour of work.

  2. My inner negative committee had a heyday for years in the morning. Since I left work I am train g myself to start the day with a “Thank You!” to whichever force is responsible for the good things in life: family, friends, a home, food, clean water and creativity ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜Š. The negative committee isn’t happy ah well never was but looks like I am.not listen g to them anymore ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿ
