How does algebra help you? Hint: It has nothing to do with math.
Equation: X + Y = Z
X = the positive you put in
Y = the negative you put in
Z = what you get out of life (at home, at work, at school, and everywhere in between)
|Examples for X||Examples for Y|
|engaging in physical activity||sitting all day at home and at work|
|eating food you believe to be healthy||stewing over your boss’ decision|
|spending time with friends||worrying about your kids|
|appreciating work, school, home environments||resenting your spouse|
|spending time on things you enjoy (hobbies)||complaining about your colleagues|
|enjoying time outdoors/in nature||dreading anything|
|meditating or practicing deep breathing||criticizing yourself and/or others|
Too simple? Not really.
Create your own list of Xs and Ys. The more Xs and the fewer Ys you put in, the better your life will be…at home, at work, at school.
Pump up your Xs and watch as your Z becomes more fun, more exciting, more stimulating, more productive, more focused, more joyful. You could even test the theory by emphasizing the Ys (the negatives) for a week and watch the downturn your mood and work takes.
