I was working the other day and wanted to learn more about the 5 second rule, while I had used some of this in my life I wanted to know more. The video below has one of my favorite people, Lewis Howe, just a down to earth person that I am learning so much from in regards to the people he brings on his show.
The 5 second rule as it is called, worked for me before I even knew the science behind it, when I was playing that same abuse over and over in my head, at one point I would allow myself 5 seconds to think about it, then forced myself to think of something positive like my beautiful son, the candle on the shelf, a song I liked, anything to get the image and thoughts that were negative out of my head.
Sounds too simple, but it works for me and can work for you.
I encourage you to watch the entire video as there was wisdom along the way, Mel Robbins, the woman that wrote the 5 second rule book talks about the science around it but the reason I wanted to share it was because she talks honestly about depression and not being able to take action, almost losing her marriage, her life.
My goal is that you walk away with one thing you can use in your life to have what you want. Please share any aha moments you had watching this.
Love & Peace,
