try becoming aware of all the "shoulds" in your head
that may be weighing you down,
zapping your va va voom,
or unconsciously criticising you for being wrong,
for not doing these "shoulds" in the past, present or future.
Write I SHOULD... at the top of a piece of paper,
finish the sentence in as many ways as you can.
Then change each sentence from starting with I should
to "If I really wanted to, I could..."
You might just discover why you haven't done some of these "should":
Maybe you don't want to.
Maybe someone else said you should, but actually you don't agree.
Maybe it's a crazily unrealistic and unachievable expectation.
Maybe it's not actually all that important.
Maybe you don't even need to.
As you give yourself the freedom to connect with your heart over your head
by saying "If I really wanted to, I could",
you might discover that you can drop one
or many things off your inner "Should" list
with a sense of relief
and a resurgence in energy for the things you actually want to do!
