Full Show Transcript: Stop Seizing the Day
Intro: Welcome to The Being and the Doing; a podcast about wellbeing and the practices that help us have more calm, focus, purpose, and presence in our busy lives. Here’s your host, author, and life coach Laurel Vespi.
Laurel: Well, hello everyone, and welcome to Season 4 of The Being and The Doing, Episode 36. I’m excited to be back. We’ve taken a bit of a break, a bit of a hiatus in the midst of this crazy year that we all have been having and so I’m excited to be back because this season, I have got some great conversations lined up with some fascinating people.
The theme this year is Perspective. In last season, we were talking about conversation and the need for conversation and why it was important and to have some juicy conversations. And so we’re extending that this year and having more conversations with interesting people, but looking at perspectives on savoring the day.
What does that actually mean to savor the day? There are 12 principles about savoring the day, and so in each of our episodes in this season, we’re going to explore the different principles.
For this very first conversation of our brand new season, I have a surprise guest, someone that you might not have expected as a guest. I’m going to invite you into this conversation right now, Neela. If you’re a longtime listener, you will know Neela from last season and I’m going to turn it over to you Neela to introduce our surprise guest.
Neela: All right, thanks, Laurel. Well, as Laurel and I were chatting around this season, I thought you know who the first guest should probably be is you, Laurel. There are so many things that if you’re a longtime listener are kind of new; new directions.
There are a lot of things that I think would be, first of all, important to dig into a little bit but also people might find it interesting how you’ve shifted a little bit, doing what I think a lot of us have done in this little pandemic – a flurry of creativity.
And I know that sounds funny but I think I talked to more than one people who because they were locked up, they did a lot of —
Laurel: I think locked down, not locked up. [laughing]
Neela: — evaluating. Yes thank you. One or the other, well, however, you were locked this past year, I would think a lot of people did a lot of introspection. It gave people a lot of time to come up with different ideas, different ways of looking at things. So without further ado, the first guest of this season, welcome Laurel to your podcast.
Laurel: Thank you. Thanks for inviting me to be a guest on my podcast. [laughing]
Neela: First of all, let me start off with, and to be honest, I don’t know the answers to all these questions myself. So I’m going to ask you questions that I’m genuinely curious about myself and also I think that your listeners will be too. So when I first saw ‘savor the day,’ I thought where does that come from? What’s the genesis of that whole idea?
Stop seizing the day
Laurel: The idea of savoring the day had been percolating for a while. Probably, the culmination of years and years and years of work, working with clients or when I do speaking engagements. And there’s always this theme that is going on in people’s lives about, how they can live their best life and they’re always looking for some sense of balance and all of that.
And it’s a conversation that I have been having with people for, I don’t know probably two decades. But in the last, even pre-2020, really starting to think about what is it that people are actually looking for. And it seemed to me that they’re looking for a way to be able to manage the ups and downs of life. And you know that popular phrase of ‘seize the day’ and it was a bit of a pushback on that idea of ‘seizing the day.’
Because there’s something around the energy of ‘seizing the day’ that I don’t think necessarily pushes people in the right direction. ‘Seize the day’ almost has this energy of you have to go and do it and grab it because if you don’t, it might be gone.
Neela: It’s that Robin Williams’ movie type of thing, right?
Laurel: Yeah, seize the day, jump on the desk. Although to all of the people who love that movie and love Robin Williams and that whole speech, I’m not taking anything away from that. There just seems to be a lot of energy around setting big stretch goals and you have to do more and you have to do more and you have to keep asking where are you pushing yourself now?
And, you know, I find that exhausting. And at the same time, we want to be moving forward. We don’t want to be stagnant but how do we get into a flow of life where there doesn’t feel like there’s this constant pressure about having to do more, do better? You know sometimes I think the self-help movement, is kind of counterproductive to what it seems to me that people are looking for, which is a sense of balance, a sense of meaning, a sense of being able to go with the flow.
So I sort of took that ‘seize the day’ idea and thought, no, it’s not so much about seizing the day, it’s more about savoring the day. And to me, that is really about being able to be present to the day and yes, take advantage of what it is that’s showing up. So there may be opportunities to seize the day but maybe not. Maybe what’s available in the day is really just being present to what’s happening. So time to stop focusing on seizing the day.
Neela: And does this have a bit of a tie into the whole slow, simple, you know, that whole like movement around slow living, you know the idea of slowing down a bit?
Laurel: I think there are elements of that. In last season, I had a great conversation with Carl Honoré where, the slow living guru and he talks about us moving at the tempo giusto, the right pace. So it’s not always about slow, meaning slow. It means being able to adjust your pace to go with what is appropriate. So yes there’s an element of that.
There’s an element of minimalism – of what is enough. And again, a great conversation also last season with the author Kim Duke talking about how do we know what is enough? There are elements of that, but I think I’ve come to think of ‘savor the day’ as the place where mindfulness meets resilience.
Mindfulness meets resilience
Laurel: It’s this idea of all of the things that we understand about mindfulness, about being present and aware, getting ourselves off of autopilot, being able to tap into the moment. But also paying attention to what it takes for us to be resilient. And resilience is often sort of portrayed as this bounce-back idea which to me is just so counterproductive to what resilience is really about.
Resilience is about how it is that we can respond to the challenges that are happening. Resilience isn’t this thing that we pull out when things are going sideways, it’s actually a set of skills and attitudes that we’re building on a daily basis so that when the more challenging things come, whether they’re little challenges or big ones, we’ve already built that skill set.
I feel like this idea of helping people ‘savor the day’ is much more about how do we learn to go with the flow of life, the natural ups and downs, the ebb and flow. In a way that allows us to tap into the moment and allows us to build the skillsets that we need for when times are more challenging.
And you know, it’s not just about the challenging times. It is about when the big stuff is happening. And when I think about the big stuff, there’s big stuff that is both challenges, you know, crises, lose your job, feel sick, whatever it is, or become sick. So yes it’s about those kinds of challenges but it’s also about the happier side. You know weddings and new jobs and moving to a new place, the celebrations.
How do we roll with all of this stuff that happens in life so that we can both be present and actually handle those things that might cause us stress – in both good ways and not so good – you know, stress isn’t always bad. How do we handle that on both sides of the coin? And mindfulness is about paying attention when things aren’t going well and it’s also about paying attention when things are going well.
Sometimes we’ve trained ourselves to just not pay attention. I wrote a blog before about “Nobody Took Pictures at the Wedding” which is about our daughter’s wedding and the request for people to not take photos and forcing people into having to just be in the experience because we now have this tendency to not pay attention to the wonderful things that are happening.
Neela: Yeah. Okay before we started taping, we had had a brief conversation around the principles of savoring and we talked through a couple of them. But I think it might be worthwhile to have you maybe outline what those are because I think that’s going to inform this season’s podcast a little bit. Can you go through and give us a little brief thing on each one.
Savour the Day principles
Laurel: So if we’re going to learn how to manage the flow of life, go with the ups and downs of life, what is it that we need to do that? First we need to pay attention to the mindset that we have – what’s going on in our heads, the conversation that we’re having. It also revolves around routines that we need to have.
What are the kind of habits and routines that we put in place that allow us to be able to do these things and what are the skills that we need? And as I started looking at it I took this big 30,000-foot view about what it would take to savor the day or in the broader context, savor your life, it came down to 12 different principles. And let me say first before I go through them that it’s a work in progress.
This is not, “oh yeah, I’ve got that done. Now I’ve ticked that box off.” This is life work, right? And some of them, you think I actually do that. I have the mindset and the routines and the skills around that particular principle that works for me. And some of them will be No, I don’t do that at all.
Neela: It’s nice though to have something where it’s a collection of them. I always find when organizing things like that that I actually can refer back, then refer back again. And then I start to memorize them. I think it’s easier for people to wrap their brains around it.
Laurel: Yeah. And what I love about the principles is they almost become like mantras or little affirmations. These are phrases that we can use to support ourselves as we go about the day. So in no particular order, because it’s not this one, then this one, then this one but I’ll start with Pause and Breathe. Because of all the principles, if you can kind of have this principle working in your life, it opens you up to so many things. This is the marriage of being able to create intentional pauses in our day when we can just stop and tap into what’s happening and perhaps breathe and also taking advantage of natural pauses that occur. So it is very much a mindfulness principle, Pause and Breathe.
The next one is Do What Works. And this is a principle that I have been talking about for a long time, for anyone who’s read my book To Be Awake. Do What Works is a principle that shows up there and it really focuses on the idea that we spend so much time trying to fix what’s not working rather than pivoting and putting our energy into figuring out what actually works for us and leaning into that. Because when we focus our energy on what doesn’t work, it pulls us more into that place of things not working.
The best example I can give of that is if you are not a morning person, if that’s not who you are, but somebody has said, “oh, you should be a morning person.” And you’re trying to be a morning person but you just are not a morning person then stop doing that and do what works. Maybe you’re an afternoon person or an evening person.
So it’s about figuring out what works for you and yes, we can be informed by things that are successful for other people. I mean that provides great information but then it means figuring out what works for you because that way you can direct your focus and energy in the right way, which leads into the next principle, which is about focusing your attention.
When we Focus our Attention, it means we are not allowing ourselves to be constantly distracted by things that are moving us off of what it is either we want to get done, in the purest sense of this to-do list that I have. Or what it is that we want to get done as a reflection of things that really matter to us.
The next principle is Release the Unneeded, which sounds a little bit like, you know, releasing the Kraken or something. But this principle is really about —
Neela: You’re really dating yourself with that one because you have to be our age to have seen that movie. [laughing] That’s okay, keep going.
Laurel: Okay. Well, I will, I’m happy to date myself. Yeah, we can test our listeners. We’ll go off on a whole sideways tangent here about, wow, can you believe that this thing is that old? Okay. We won’t do that. All right.
Release the unneeded as a principle is the principle of building the skill of being able to let go of what you don’t need. And it’s bigger than just there are thoughts that you don’t need. There are perhaps habits and routines that you don’t need. And unneeded means they are not in service of you and what’s important.
So letting go of thoughts and habits, perhaps relationships, perhaps grudges or hurts that you have had. Maybe it’s stuff you got, in your back closet or whatever it is, just stuff that’s not serving you that you are holding on to. And the more that we can release that, it begins to create a space that allows us to do all kinds of other things.
Sometimes why we’re not able to savor the day is because the weight of things that we’re hanging on to – physical, mental, emotional – is weighing us down such that we can’t actually either enjoy the great stuff that’s happening or be able to handle all the more challenging things that are going on.
Neela: This might be one as you were saying – this is ongoing work. Right. I can see this principle now that we’re here being maybe one that takes people time to tease this one out a little bit. There’s probably a lot to work on, just in this one thing. You know it’s hard to let go or otherwise, everyone would do it as they say, right?
Laurel: It is. And actually over on my YouTube channel, I did a couple of videos on the idea about letting go and ways in which we can ease into it. And you know, there are lots of things that we hang on to that it’s not going to take some sort of monumental shift to let that go. But certainly there other things that we are hanging on to that it’s going to take some work.
It’s not about putting everything down. It’s about beginning to release something that’s not serving us – release that, release that, release that. And then eventually, perhaps we’ve built the mindset and the habits and the skills so that we’re now able to release some of the bigger things.
Neela: Right. And we’re different, of course, as time goes on. So maybe something I couldn’t let go of a year or two ago, I don’t know about you, Laurel but I find right now, I don’t know if it’s the pandemic or the news or whatever, but to me ‘the don’t sweat the small stuff,’ kind of attitude, there are all kinds of stuff I’m willing to let go of right now. Because I just, I really see it for what it is more so than in the past.
So obviously, you know, over time, your ability to be able to let things go, I think improves. This is a good touchstone to just keep coming back and seeing if maybe you’re a little more ready.
Laurel: Right and it’s true. That’s why I’ve found this whole big idea of savoring the day and all of the pieces that go into it, they all work together. As you’re perhaps exploring one principle, you find that eases up something else, right, that as you begin to focus your attention, it might become really apparent to you. “Oh, I don’t need that anymore, I can let that thing go,” whatever that is.
The next principle is Control What You Can, which is huge in terms of us being able to identify: is this in my control or not? And if it’s not in my control, then pivoting to asking what is in my control and putting our energy there. We spend a lot of time trying to control things that are not in our control or worrying about, complaining about, ruminating on things that are not in our control. So the more that we know what is in our control and put our energy there, the more power we take back.
People are always saying, I wish there was more time and my response is often, “okay, well, you will claim back a lot of time if you stop trying to control, think about, worry about stuff that’s not in your control.” All of a sudden there’s a lot of time that is freed up.
Neela: Right. That reminds me of the Worry Fix. I think there’s a lot of that in that program and we can point people to that as well.
Laurel: Right. So the Worry Fix is a great little five-day program that basically walks people through a system to identify things that they’re worried about and particularly what to do with the ones that are in your control and what to do with the things that are out of your control.
The next principle is about Making Conscious Choices. And what I mean by conscious choices is am I aligning my choices with the things that are really important to me? A lot of the time we just are functioning on autopilot and partly we function on autopilot as a survival mechanism. We’re really busy or we’re really distracted and so we just go to our default response. And, you know, people will sometimes have that experience of, “oh man, I can’t believe I did that.”
Well, you did that thing probably on autopilot. The more that we can make our choices conscious, that we’re aware of the choices doesn’t mean that we’re going to remove all unconscious choices. I mean, imagine how exhausting it would be if I had to consciously make a decision about every single thing that I’m doing. No, it’s not about that but it’s more about bigger things. Can I be much more conscious about my choices? I’m aware that’s the thing that I am choosing because our choices should be in service of something that is important to us.
The next one is about Building Meaningful Connections. We know that if we’re thinking about savoring the day, we know that for human beings a sense of connection is really important. We saw that, and continue to see that, in the pandemic where people have felt a disconnect with other humans in a lot of respects.
They are feeling disconnected from family and friends. If we’re going to savor the day, both on the upside, when things are going really well, or when things are challenging, we want to feel that we have strong connections to things and whether those are relationships with other people, friends, and family, or whether those are connections to perhaps causes. It’s also about the connection to self, understanding that I have a deep connection with myself who I am and what’s important to me, or connection to nature.
There’s a lot of threads that you can pull in this principle of building a meaningful connection. But it’s knowing that we do not exist in a vacuum, we’re not an island. And so it’s looking at all of the different kinds of connections that are important.
Next principle is Honor Your Body which is the principle that really addresses what I call the triumvirate of health which is about eating well and moving our bodies and getting a restful sleep. It’s hard to manage the difficult or the challenging times if we’re not doing that. We need to have those physical resources.
And I think everybody, again, coming out of the pandemic, there may have been people who all of a sudden embrace this Uber healthy lifestyle. But I think for a lot of people, they began doing a lot of things that were not honoring their bodies in many ways – on the couch, eating something, drinking too much, staying up too late. We can release the judgment on ourselves for that, we don’t need that. Let’s release that and then start thinking about how it is that we honor our body.
Because for me I think there’s a lot of denial that sits in this principle for many people – where we can treat our bodies like trash because even though we know that’s not a good thing, we are hedging our bets that the consequences of that, we are not going to actually experience them…until then we do. And we wish we could have gone back and honored our body better. So our ability to be able to actually enjoy all of the good things in life and have the resources, the physical resources to deal with more challenging times comes down to that one.
The next principle is Prioritizing What Matters. First, you have to know what matters and it might be surprising to know that in conversations that I have with people that in a superficial way, people might be able to say what it is that matters most to them. But if you take it off that superficial level, they haven’t really done a lot of exploration about what really matters to them. So it is about understanding the core values piece, you know, what is really important to you so that you can prioritize those things.
The next principle is Shift to Unstick. And this is I think one of the most important skills that I work with clients on because if you can learn how to shift perspective, then all kinds of opportunities become available. When you feel stuck on anything, that’s your signal that you need to shift. You need to either shift what you’re doing, to do something different, shift to doing what works. But in a bigger sense, it’s shifting your perspective or the way in which you’re looking at something.
When we feel really stuck, it means that we’re looking at something through a particular lens that probably is not serving us. And if we can shift and look at it in a slightly different way, it opens up new possibilities about how it is that we can approach a particular situation. Shifting perspective is simply a skill. And first, it’s about understanding how to shift and then practicing it, practicing it, practicing it on things that don’t really matter so that when it gets to bigger things, then you’ve built that skill.
Two principles left.
Tackle your Undones. This principle is about taking the things that you have continually put off, the things that you’re procrastinating about and take care of them. And we can tackle our undones in a number of ways, either we can do that thing, right? I’m going to do it now so it’s done. Or I can assign it to someone else, delegate it, hire someone or give it to somebody. If you’re not going to do it and it’s a thing that needs to get done, give it to somebody else. Or maybe just take it off your list.
There are a lot of things that people have undone on their list of things that really don’t need to get done. They either are not particularly meaningful or someone else put it on your list for you. So there are different ways that we can tackle our undones and the reason why it’s important to tackle our undones is again, just like those things that are not needed, undones have a weight to them you know.
When you turn your calendar and you see that list of things that you’ve got to do and then you get to the end of the week and you haven’t crossed very many things off, there’s a weight to that that interferes with our ability to savor the good things that are happening in the day, even savor the accomplishments of the things that we have got done. When there’s this giant pile of undones, we’re looking at what hasn’t got completed as opposed to what has got completed.
So there are all kinds of things that might fall into that list of tackling your undones.
Neela: I remember I think it was Oprah who was talking about people, it was a decluttering thing. It could have been Oprah, forgive me if I’ve got this wrong. And she was talking about that every box that you’ve got sitting in your attic or in your garage has this invisible string attached to it. That all those, your undones, they have this pull. You know there’s that box, you haven’t dealt with that, these things keep tugging and even at the subconscious level, you know, they could just keep tugging at you. So I agree that’s such a great one.
Laurel: And if you think about it, our undones are like this poster of your lack of success. So think of your undones are just chipping away at feeling like you’re successful or accomplished. We’ll dive into that more when we get to that particular one. But there is a lot of reasons why we have undones.
You know, sometimes it has to do with the kinds of the tasks we just procrastinate about for a variety of different reasons. Some of the undones that we have are just things that are not meaningful at all to us but we think we should do this thing. And so we actually have added it to our list even though it really doesn’t have any meaning but now it still sits there as a weight. Right?
Imagine if you had this basket and you were throwing all of these undone things into the basket, and now you’re carrying that around with you, that’s exhausting in and of itself. And the first thing we can do is just start tossing out all of the stuff that like, “why is that even in my basket, I don’t need that in my basket.” So can I toss those out. Then start looking at the reasons why we’ve left other things undone.
And the last one… which you know, Pause and Breathe certainly is a favorite of mine. But this one I think is also a very close second: Hope Audaciously. I love this principle because it really speaks to optimism and positivity and understanding that there is the opportunity for something better or different.
And of course, the way that we get to better or different has to do with the conscious choices that we’re making, all of those other principles that come together but it is a mindset about what is possible for us. Even when things feel really, really dark and difficult, I can hope audaciously. Meaning that kind of wild and fervent sort of hope that yes, it will be better. It’s captured in that phrase of believing there’s good in the world.
I mean sometimes we look at the world and we think what a mess it is but the principle of hope audaciously is about believing there’s good in the world.
I believe in this and this and this and that moves us forward. Not in an unrealistic way. It’s not about putting on those rose-colored glasses and there are no problems, no challenges, but it really is very much a mindset to set us up for success.
Neela: Right and I remember you saying another time too that you start to see that which you believe, right? We had a conversation about when you start to have positive thoughts, you actually start to see more positive stuff because that’s the filter now that you start seeing the world.
Laurel: Yeah, it’s that old thing about a red car, you just bought a red car and all you see are red cars now, the same thing. When you hope audaciously, you begin to see the examples of why I can hope audaciously. I remember a story not that long ago where somebody started one of those ‘pay for the coffee behind them thing’ and then it kept going. And it was like two days nonstop of people buying the coffee for the person behind them in the drive-through.
And you know it wasn’t just a spontaneous thing, once it happened the first couple of times, then the people who were serving the coffee in the drive-through were telling people. They were saying “so people have been paying it forward for the last, three hours, do you want to participate?” So hope audaciously is also about sharing that. If something’s going to go viral, let it be hope and positivity. So it’s a mindset but it’s also an action.
Neela: So I think, correct me if I’m wrong but we have these principles in a beautiful form for people should they wish to download them which I’ve seen and it’s really beautiful.
Laurel: Yeah, it’s just a simple little poster. Yeah, it’s free. We’ll put the link in the show notes and I’ll list all of the principles in the show notes so that you can see them. But there is this lovely little blue watercolor poster that you can download for free.
You can print it out and sticks it up somewhere. And as I said, they work as really great mantras. I mean, you can pick one of those principles and it be your mantra for the day. You look at the principles and you think, okay, for today, it’s going to be all about honoring my body, or today it’s going to be all about controlling what I can or whatever. So they work great as an intention or a mantra.
And you’ll see in the beautiful ‘savor the day’ at the top, there is this wave action and that comes from a terrific quote by Jon Kabat-Zinn. We’ll call him the grandfather of mindfulness. I’m not sure if he appreciates that title or not, but he says that “you can’t stop the waves but you can learn how to surf.” And what he means by that is we can’t control what life is going to bring. Life is going to just do what it is and a lot of that is out of our control.
But what we can do is learn how to surf it which was really the inspiration behind this idea of savoring the day. How is it that we surf the waves of life, go with that flow, no matter what it is that’s happening, whether it’s good stuff, bad stuff, in between. How is it that we can build the mindset and the routines and the skills that allow us to surf? So on that poster, you’ll see the beautiful little wave that goes with it.
How to stop seizing and start savouring the day
Neela: And people can, I guess I can invite them to savortheday.ca
Laurel: Yes. So for a long time listeners, you’ve probably been to my Stone Circle Coaching website which is still there but yes, we have created this beautiful website, savortheday.ca, go Canada, where you’ll find lots of different kinds of resources there. And one of the things that you will find there is this lovely community that I have created called Savour Essentials, which is this group of people who really want to work with this idea of how it is that we savor the day and ultimately savor our lives.
For those of you who, again, are longtime listeners you know that normally in the podcast, we do something to think about, and something to try. For this season, I’m not including that but if that’s the kind of thing that you liked, something to think about and something to try, then you would really love what we do in Savour Essentials. It’s the ultimate something to think about, something to try and I’ve designed it in a way to provide lots of value but also keep it really accessible for people.
For the price of buying you and me a coffee, you can come and join the community. And every month we’re exploring different principles and things to try and other resources.
Neela: Oh, the calendar and the posters and the videos, girlfriend, I’m telling you. It’s awesome.
Laurel: I forget all the cool things that are there. [laughing] There’s this monthly calendar that has different prompts of things to do, and some emails that you get with more juicy kinds of information. There’s a monthly challenge that we do with a prize in a random draw for participating. Yeah, there are some posters. There are all kinds of resources. There are videos. Lots of cool stuff.
Neela: Yeah, that’s great. Okay, well, thank you. I think I know I’m excited and I’m sure people in your audience are too to see what the season’s going to unfold.
Laurel: Yeah, I’m excited too. So that’s a wrap for us for this first episode in Season 4.
