Using Your Spaces Effectively

How to use your spaces effectively

This blog has come about because I set my alarm for 6:15 this morning knowing that Chris my camera man was coming to film a new blog. As usual, I was not very organised and I was drawing a complete blank on what I was going to talk about. I was wracking my brain trying to come up with something new and different to talk about – I’ve been doing blogs for so long that I didn’t want to end up repeating myself.

So I got up and I sat at my kitchen table, I had my morning cup of tea and stared out at my garden and you know what I came up with four different blog ideas in fifteen minutes! It was like those blogs and that activity had become anchored to that space, so as soon as I sat down I was in the zone and the work flowed.

I’m one of those people who like to collect mugs with little catchphrases on them, I’ve got about 7 mugs that I use for different activities. I’m anchored to my mugs and you can be anchored to spaces and objects too.

That raises the question how do you become anchored to a space?  Listen to this week’s video and try out the tasks below to get them most out of your spaces and be more productive.

 

How do you become anchored to a space?

Well if you’re running a business ask yourself;

  • Where do you do your accounts?
  • Where do you speak to clients?
  • Where do you do you do your planning?

List your essential activities, think about where you do them best and maybe use that space to anchor those activities.

I’ve done quite a few blogs on anchoring recently, I’ve talked about anchoring positive emotions and anchoring to get rid of negative emotions. This is another blog in the anchoring theme.

Anchoring Positive Emotions

Anchoring Positive Emotions

How to anchor positive emotions

Anchoring is when we apply a stimulus at the height of an emotion so that the two things become neurologically linked.  We can use this to anchor positive emotions or to get rid of negative emotions.

If you think about it, if we’ve got positive emotions and we can use them at will, then life becomes very interesting and we can use these emotions to move forward and stay positive.   On the flip side if you’ve anchored to negative emotions such as distress, sadness or disappointment from your past then you’re not going to be able to move forward.

There’s lots of reasons for getting positive emotions anchored and I teach how to do this on my NLP Practitioner course, and you can do it yourself.

In this week’s video I teach you the NLP technique to anchor positive emotions. Watch the video and try it for yourself.

Firstly you’ll need to decide on positive emotion you would like to anchor.

As an example, I’ve just been on a business retreat and I could do with some calm. So I thought I might anchor some calm on my knuckles. Follow the process in the video and use the script below to try it for yourself.

Firstly we say to ourselves..

Can you remember a time when you were totally calm?”   (Substitute calm with the positive emotion you want to anchor)

As you remember that time

go back to that time now…..go right back, float down into your body and see what you saw, hear what you heard and really feel those feelings of being totally calm   (As soon as you feel the positive emotion put your finger on your knuckle and as soon as it starts to disappear again take your finger off.)

I then repeat the process several times thinking of different times when I felt totally calm.

When I think about wanting to be calm I can then press the same knuckle and that calmness washes over me because it’s been neurologically linked to the stimulus of pressing my knuckle. This means that anytime I need some calm I just press my knuckle and the calmness comes over me.

So have a think what emotion you would like to have, maybe it’s excitement, determination or focus and use the highlighted script above and have a go.
