Life can be a whirl wind, blowing you every which way. With these three Emotional Fitness Training, Inc tips, you can find peace within. Tip one:
Dr Anders Ericsson, expert on what it takes to be a star in any field, said it takes 10,000 hours (20 hours for 50 weeks a year for ten years = 10,000) of deliberate practice to become an expert in almost anything.
The good news? Emotional Fitness Training’s (EFTI) exercises promote starring in your life, not on the stage or the athletic playing field. Each exercise strengthens your Emotional Intelligence (EI) and that has been proven to be more important than IQ, social class, or wealth in getting to the good life.
More good news: Good enough gets you there when it comes to everyday life.
And more good news: Emotional Fitness Training’s (EFTI) Twelve Easy Exercises turn everyday happenings into exercises that strengthen your EI. To be most helpful each exercise must be practiced with full awareness or with what Ericsson calls deliberate practice.
That is done by meditating before and after the exercise. Sound too difficult? Not once you have learned and practiced EFT’s One Minute Meditation.
And a final bit of good news: Most of you already practice some of the exercises that built emotional intelligence.
Note: The Mission refers to every person’s responsibility to make their part of the world more peaceful and help bring peace on earth.
EMOTIONAL FITNESS TRAINING tips
Emotional Fitness Training Tip One: Practice the OMM until you can do it comfortably and without having to read the exercise. That takes as little as five times for some, twenty-five for others.
Emotional Fitness Training Tip Two: Review the list of exercises above and add those you do not already practice one by one, until you are doing one or another throughout the day. This was why each was designed to be practiced in minutes. Even move your body can be practiced as a one minute stretch.
Emotional Fitness Training Tip Three: Be patient but diligent, peace will come. For more detailed tips about bring peace to you buy my book: Self-soothing to Create Calm in your life. As always my ebooks cost less than a latte or a movie and have more value.

THANK YOU FOR ALL YOU DO
Remember sharing is caring and the easiest way to practice kindness is to share this post if you found it helpful. Share it even if it doesn’t speak to you, it will speak to some. Didn’t like it? Comment and tell me why and how to improve.
This post was not inspired by this WordPress Daily Post Middle Seat – It turns out that your neighbor on the plane/bus/train (or the person sitting at the next table at the coffee shop) is a very, very chatty tourist. Do you try to switch seats, go for a non-committal brief small talk, or make this person your new best friend?
However, remembering what matters, I would practice kindness and listen for a while, and then as nicely as possible I would eventually, say “I need to nap” and put on my eye shades and nap out. An alternative might be “I need to finish this book as I have to write a review to get into the mail tomorrow.”
