Savor the Success posted the following on facebook this week:
Savor the Success Women entrepreneurs! We all have our ups and downs… What do you do to motivate yourself when you you need a “pick me up”?
There were many responses – including mine – here are some of them:
Allison T Moore I always remember the “why” …The reason why I do what I do. http://www.allisontmoore.com/
Tieast Smith I look at my children and that helps
Lisa Meloche I go to the bookstore and browse books while drinking hot chocolate. Somehow I always find something to inspire me there and can’t wait to implement when I return.
Bridget Hogue I dance around my home office to Motown hits…for some reason this ALWAYS works for me 🙂
Todra Payne Take a few hours off and walk along a creek not far from my house. Very relaxing.
Mendy Cleveland I put myself around people who are positive and who influence me.
Savor the Success Wow, these are FANTASTIC words of advice. Go, ladies, go!
Felicia B. Wright icecream (lol) and positive thinking…it doesn’t help to focus on negativity
Dequiana Brooks I do a couple things when I’m down: 1) Have a good chat with a funny friend who always know how to pick me back up, and 2) Remind myself of how many people I won’t be able to help if I give up now. http://www.inspiredmedia.net/
Justine LadyLuna Lackey Ug I am a Debbie Downer today. Its a simple “put one foot in front of the other” sort of day. Other days I use music, aromatherapy, good friends, and lots of laughter.
Inna Shamis Indulge in a piece of chocolate!
Judith George Go on to Ted.com and find an inspiration talk.
Debi Rose Stay connected. Attend a Meetup of like-minded women or get involved in an online discussion. Also a good hard workout!
Ruth Stroup I clear my desk.. but dancing around the office sounds so much better. Chaka Khan, Chaka Kahn.. I feel for you….
Angie Walker Griffin Listen to Lincoln Brewster songs (This is the day and Everlasting God).
Johanna Nilsson Movement for me is key. Love dance. However, Rusty Wells yoga at @urbanflow is unbeatable. Not enough words. Makes magic.
Savor the Success Movement is so important when you feel stuck… physical movement! I was feeling down the other day because all my employees were sick and I had to keep the ship moving. I decided to cook, go to a family spa… all physical movement that was healing! Love your answers, ladies. –AJK
Now – I need to say a couple of more words about that. I know yoga is not for everyone. Vinyasa Flow yoga is now for everyone. But if it is, and you don’t try it out, you miss out of a great great gift. It is Rusty Wells and the Urban Flow Yoga team I am taking about. And here are the details:
Urban Flow – Bhakti-style

Enjoy. What ever you need – what you put in, you get out.
