The video discusses a simple way of managing some of the emotional “weight” impacting your day or moment. It involves making a quick written list of what’s troubling you at any given time. You then process each item on your list and physically cross off every one that doesn’t have to be dealt with right now.
Normally, we make “to-do” lists to ensure that we don’t forget about the essential tasks in our day. But in this case, we are reversing that. We’re giving ourselves permission to temporarily forget the unecessary toxic thoughts weighing us down. This takes the weight off, and allows us to focus on success.
Exercise: Make a private list of all the things that might be weighing you down. Slowly cross off each item that you don’t need to worry about right now. Forget about it. Did you notice a difference in how you felt?
