Sometimes you just have these days or weeks that take their toll. You have to cram several different deadlines and appointments into a short period of time. Whether it’s work, exams, both or family duties, there is just a lot of obligations you have to juggle. While trying to work-out, eat right and occasionally kiss your boyfriend on the mouth instead of accidentally hitting him in the eye when you crawl into bed at night.
…Not that I’m talking out of experience or anything.
I do have some experience with crazy weeks like that. And sometimes, I need an extra bit of mental magic to power through. Giving yourself that is actually pretty easy. This little trick for example can work wonders. It makes those type of days or weeks easier for me:
I think of myself as Superwoman. Or at least the Superhero version of myself. I just go “okay, sweetie*, I know there’s a lot going on but you can do it. Turn on the superhero-ness. Activate Superwoman Mode. Start kicking ass.”
And then I envision this cute supergirl emblem under my regular clothes. Occasionally with a little neon. It’s silly, I know, but it’s a fun little thing that gives me some extra energy. It helps me do what I gotta do; it’s cute, it motivates me and makes me smile at the same time.
So dearies, on this Monday, or on any other crazy day or week ahead of you, this might be a little help to you too. Access your superhero side. Just to help with your day to day lives, the deadlines and the potential drama we all encounter from time to time, transform a little into your superhero to deal with it all.
*I call myself sweetie. We’re on pretty good terms.
