When was the last time you did something that pushed your normal boundaries? And how did you feel about it? I was thinking about this at the weekend, waiting backstage to perform in my first ever ballet show in front of hundreds of people (yes, I am guffawing at the unlikeliness too!). My heart was beating fast, my hands were shaking and I was feeling nervous and excited at the same time. The performance went really well and we all felt fabulous when it was finished – the sense of achievement was immense! I was wandering about afterwards feeling very pleased with myself, walking a bit taller and smiling a bit more than normal. My sense of well-being was pretty good and the feeling has lasted for a few days (definitely not turning into a dance diva though!).
So what about you? Would you like to stretch yourself a little bit outside of your normal sphere of activity and reap the well-being rewards? I’d love to hear about what has worked for you in the past (doing more of what works, less of what doesn’t work) and what you plan to do from now on. Well-being is a bit like a boomerang: what you throw out, you inevitably get back.
