Movin’ & Groovin’ Monday: Katrina And The Waves

Welcome to a new series: “Movin’ and Groovin’ Monday.”  Each week you will find a snappy little video that will get you up and moving. Here is the link to last week’s video and post which inspired me to create this series.  Get ready for a “religious” experience of the 60’s kind. 

Grieving? Don’t Make This Mistake

During my first year of widowhood, I spent most weekends on the couch so I had enough energy to get through the next work week.  That was a mistake. While rest is necessary so is moving.  I would put a load of laundry in the washer and it would take me 3 hours to get up enough energy and desire to go put it in the dryer. Even if you dance only 5 minutes a day – DANCE! You will feel better. Then dance a little more each day and eventually you will be “Walking On Sunshine.”

In Transition? Don’t Make This Mistake

The one thing us job seekers are good at doing is negative self talk (a.k.a NST). I know it is easier to say quit doing it than it is to do it. Just when you get the NST eliminated, friends or family step in and bombard you with negative comments or ask you all sorts of questions about your job search.

So to you my fellow job seekers I say, listen to the up tempo music and “shake your groove thing.” It will help keep the NST down. Play an uptempo cd on your way to an interview to fill your mind with positive thoughts. When you get out of your car – strike a power pose and tell yourself “I WILL rock this interview.” Remember, you too will soon be “Walking On Sunshine.”

Here is this weeks video – enjoy! May you walk on sunshine all week.
