Let me introduce you to the Bank of Well-Being. It’s our internal barometer as to how we are feeling about our life. When our account has a nice surplus we are able to handle most challenges. Our job is to be mindful of how easily our account can fluctuate.
For example with all of the negativity out there our account can easily get drained. Just think about how you get plugged in when you read the paper or listen to the news. I find that keeping it to a minimum makes a huge difference.
Your account easily gets drained when there is a run of negative news or negative thinking. To keep your account solvent you need to deposit good energy in the form of positive thoughts, healthy food, exercise, a spiritual discipline, inspiration, supportive friends and I’m sure there are many more ways of replenishing the account.
Imagine consciously thinking of this concept. What are some things you can do to replenish your account? What actions are you willing to take now? Who is going to hold you accountable?
