I heard this term by the “Made to stick” brothers whose names are not sticking right now, feather stretch. It means doing something for a very short period of time that we usually agree you must do for longer. Examples are like setting a clock for 5 minutes and cleaning the dirtiest room in the house but only for 5 minutes or exercising in front of the TV for 1 minute for an overwhelmed mom but only for 1 minute. Tiny things that allow people to think that can do it. Micro programs to give hope and start people wanting more of whatever it is. The wanting creates the capacity to change the habits or create the new ones.

I started this Energy Gurus work about 3 years ago on the same theme. Giving people things they could do at the office or at work that could change their energy in micro doses. Now everyone needs these techinques not just corporate executives.

I want to share with you how I learned to meditate and it was not in one minute doses. My teacher used to give us meditation for 2 ½ hours. Yes that is right. No not broken up into chunks during the day.. one sit. We did it or at least I can speak for myself I did it. Really many of us did, hundreds maybe thousands of us. Now when people are wiling to meditate they want the mini pack, economy pack for food and mini packs for meditation. I gauge what they can handle or think they can and then try stretching it a bit. If I give a meditation to someone and say do this for 22 minutes and they glaze over or cringe I don’t ask them how long they will do it for I usually play with them and say okay then 31 minutes if they moan I go to 62. They either settle on 22 minutes or we see where they can stretch time and space to have 31 minutes or even 11 minutes. We are going for some soul time

1-2 minutes is what I want to give you. Relief from overwhelm, fear, depression, guilt, the list in 1-2 minutes. This is the new 1-minute manager.

Relief for over-worked hands and brains

Hands facing, join fingertips with light pressure. Move hands in and out by bending the fingers.
A variation is to lightly tap the fingertips or move the fingertips around in very small light circles.

The stimulation of fingers never endings activate various glands in the brain. Helps feel more lively and relaxed.
