Imagine that you have a fuel tank which contains your energy and resourcefulness. Most people tend to empty their fuel tanks faster than they fill it, so the orange light is constantly flashing on their dashboard. When your fuel tank is almost empty you will never perform at your best – that requires a full tank of energy and resourcefulness.
How full is your fuel tank?
It simple to top it up. Every time you smile or feel good, you put some fuel in – it need only take a breathspace. We call it having treats and we recommend that you have hundreds of treats every day.
A treat is anything which makes you smile or feel good that you can access through your senses: sight, hearing, taste, smell and touch.
1. Make a list of possible treats for each of your senses
2. Allow yourself at least one breathspace an hour for a treat
The world is full of potential treats, so exploit the possibilities and make yourself feel good.
