PLYMOUTH, Mass., Jan. 12, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Every morning many people experience deja vu like that of fictional weatherman Phil Connors, played by Bill Murray, in the 1993 movie Groundhog Day. Like Murray's character, who was doomed to relive the same day over and over, they grapple with the question he asks in the movie: "What would you do if you were stuck in one place and everything was exactly the same and nothing that you did mattered?"
Award-winning life coach Anne Jolles knows exactly what to do. The author of the new book Grace Trail: Find Your Footing and Move Toward the Life You Were Meant to Live, she says people can break the cycle that makes every day feel like the one before it by asking themselves five simple questions. These questions are part of a concept she has shared with thousands of people over the past decade that fosters joy, hope and resiliency. Called the Grace Trail, she created it in 2012 to cope with the worry of having a son in combat in Afghanistan; Her Grace Trail model has been written about in Huffington Post, the Boston Globe and The Old Colony.
The five questions are:
- What am I Grateful for?
- What can I Release?
- What do I need to Accept?
- What is my Challenge?
- What can I Embrace as possible?
Jolles can also talk about:
- Why you don't have to be Punxsutawney Phil to get a fresh start on Groundhog Day.
- How you can walk off worries one step at a time by creating your own Grace Trail in your kitchen, office or backyard.
