EP117 My Ritual to Get Out of a Funk
In this episode, I may embarrass myself a bit when I share about my ritual to get out of a funk and move energy again. But it works for me; maybe you should try it?
KC: Welcome to The Business of Life Podcast. My name is Keith Callahan, your host and today I want to talk to you about a little dance that I do. So it’s funny this morning. I got up and I was just having – literally I’ve been just – I spent some time at the altar and then I spent some time in – you know, probably 20 minutes at the altar and meditation and then sat there just writing and I couldn’t come up with anything. I really couldn’t for this podcast and that’s very unlike me.
Usually, when I spend the time at the altar, I just get into this receiving space and the – what I’m supposed to teach about and talk about comes right to mind. So anyway, I was doing all that and then I was like, man, I got to just – I got to move this energy because I’m like stuck in my head and I’m doubting myself and all this.
I think I’ve recorded a podcast about this in the past, but it’s so funny how this works. So it has me in a good mood and ready to record the podcast and I call it my “funky dance” and – all right, so this is live recording. I just had to pause that. My daughter came up and told me it’s trash day and I have to go take out the trash.
So yeah, I didn’t have a topic to record for this and I just couldn’t like get going with it. So I have this thing and I call it my “funky dance” and literally I like stand up and I start like bopping my head up and down, almost like I’m listening to rap music, right? Start bopping my head up and down and then side to side and then I start like bouncing around a little bit on my toes and I start saying like, “Funk, funk, funk! Get rid of that funk.”
Literally, I start doing that and dancing around and then I’m not going to go into the whole thing, because it probably gets embarrassing. But it’s totally free-flowing and it’s so weird. Within like five minutes, every time I do it, I just feel lighter. I feel happier and it’s – literally, it’s just like funk, funk, funk, get rid of that funk. I’m bopping up and down and then I start making up different words and that’s it.
But sometimes, we have to get out of our heads. We’re physical beings and just sitting there and thinking and trying to whatever. Like, just getting up and doing something silly and – I won’t stay stupid but silly like that. It totally moves the energy for me.
So I wanted to share that because maybe it will help. You don’t have to do the funky dance or use whatever words I do. But it’s that movement. It’s that letting go, that releasing and yeah, it’s a big, big part of – the whole entire thing, the whole entire point of this is the movement of energy. That’s the name of the game in life.
We’re trying to stay at the highest level of energy that we can and for me, my little funky dance does it. So funk, funk, funk. Get rid of that funk. And yeah, did that for about five minutes today. I’m feeling good now. And then I was like, well, I will just record about this. It’s so perfect.
All right. Have a beautiful day. We will see you on the next episode. Peace!
KC: Hey, Keith here, and today I have a free gift for you. Listen this free gift is a list of the 12 most influential books that I’ve ever read. These are the books that have helped me to create the mindset, learn the philosophies, learn the skills to really create this big, beautiful, life that we’re living now.
I read a crazy amount of books, I really do. I’ve probably read thousands of books and these are the top 12 books that – they’re the ones that I go to, they’re the ones that I work with over, and over, and over again. They are highlighted, outlined, dog-eared. And I put this list together for you because I want it to be a shortcut.
I don’t want you to have to – you don’t have to go out and read the thousands and thousands of books. These are the 12 that I highly recommend. I have a detailed review for each book, explaining why I recommend them, why I like them, when I worked with them in my life, what part of my life they helped me to improve.
So I put this together for you, and made it super each for you to get this list. All you have to do is send a text to the number 33444 and then in the body of that text, type in “12books” with no space. So that’s the number “12books”. Again, send the text message to the number, address it to 33444 and then type in “12books” as the message and just send that. And that’ll get you setup to receive those top 12 most influential books that have had the biggest impact on my life.
KC: Today’s episode is brought to you by our sister podcast, All About Beachbody Coaching. So All About Beachbody Coaching really allows us to do this podcast without having all those annoying commercials in the beginning for you. So All About Beachbody Coaching, the Beachbody business that Amy and I run, actually funds this podcast.
So yes, it does cost money to run this podcast, we do not charge you anything, we don’t throw in commercials or anything like that, it really is, it’s funded by our business and by our other podcast, All About Beachbody Coaching. And for me, I’m just eternally grateful for this opportunity because it’s allowed me to really create the life that I love to live.
It’s given me the opportunity to do what I want, when I want, with who I want, and even deeper than that, it’s allowed me to help others to create the same for themselves. It’s allowed me to help hundreds of other people become part time or full time Beachbody coaches, to leave that corporate 9 to 5 job and create passive income in their lives.
And really there’s nothing like that. It’s cool when you have success, it’s so much more rewarding when you help others. So I mention this or a few reasons, the first reason is, that’s actually the way that I work with people and mentor people. I don’t do anything outside of Beachbody coaching because I know that it’s such a powerful life changing tool.
So if you’re curious about working with me, interested in working one-on-one, interested in creating the type of life that you wanna live, I suggest swinging over there. The other reason is, even if somebody’s just curious, like you’ve heard about Beachbody, you know there’s a lot of Beachbody coaches out there. Maybe some of them you get a little annoyed with.
It really dives into what this business is really about, which is life transformation. So if you’re just curious, swing over there. And then the other piece is, if you’re really considering becoming a Beachbody coach, I highly, highly recommend you listen to that first.
Alright, much love guys. Again, that is the All About Beachbody Coaching Podcast, our sister podcast.
ANNOUNCER: Thank you for listening to the Business of Life Podcast. Apply what you learned today and you’ll be one step closer to creating the life you love to live.
