You know the feeling. When you’re down, stressed, overburdened, overworked, or consumed by a negative thought pattern the tendency is to look down. While you walk, your gazed is fixed on the sidewalk, mind mulling and obsessing. Or maybe you’re stuck at your desk, gaze fixed on documents or emails for hours on end. Perhaps a creative project has you engrossed in details and you simply need to give your eyes and brain a break.
When you get into that mode it’s easy to feel stuck and overwhelmed by your situation. Here’s my advice to you: Look up! And I don’t mean look on the bright side. I mean literally, look up. Go outside, look up at the sky, look up at a tree, even look up at your ceiling (we often miss interesting ceiling patterns or light fixtures due to our tendency to look down). Looking up is not only a natural mood lifter, it helps put your problems into perspective when you feel how small you are beneath this immense canopy of blue, white, gray, green or whatever you see when you turn your gaze upward.
You just never know what you might come across…
A tree encased in flowers
A full moon
A magical sunset
A disco ball
A giant Santa
An insanely blue sky
A beautiful archway
Spiderman, stuck in a planter
The sky through the trees
Another awesome sunset
