Wake Up Week 19 - How has it been for you?

The Great Wake Up! is a series of 40 fun experiments during the course of 2016, to help you find the time and energy to make your life a brighter and more fulfilling place. In essence, a strategy for life liberation! By breaking routines and experimenting with new, we force ourselves to become more conscious. Join The Great Wake Up! for all 40 experiments as they unfold or take your pick from what feels right for you... BUT be sensible and don't try anything which will put you at risk. We can't promise that these experiments will work for you and don't take responsibility for the outcomes. It is all down to you!

We are taking another week off from our experiments during week 19.

We are noticing that these weeks of reflection are proving really useful for our brilliant troop of bloggers. Some are using the time to look back over the experiments so far to better understand their effects. Others are making up their own experiments to fill the week.

Here are just some of the things they have discovered.

“No matter what the answer, you can’t control the actions or feelings of others but you can choose how you wish to respond - you can let it go! I also became incredibly aware about how many great moments can happen in one day and the amazing people I have in my life creating these.”

“With each experiment I've felt a greater sense of connection with myself and the world around me. Each one has taught me more about myself as an individual, and as part of the wider universe.”

“These experiments are reminders of simple wisdoms that really can reconnect us with what it is to embrace life. The impact is felt by the individual, but also those around them. Really, what is there to lose? “

If you were able to take part in the 3 April experiments then we would appreciate 5 minutes of your time to complete a short survey. This way we will learn more about how the experiments work.


The experiment for week 20 will be posted here on Friday the 6th May so do come back then!

Keep on keeping on and keep on shining bright!

Huge love

Best selling author, speaker and business beatnik Chris Baréz Brown has a rather unusual view of the world in that he knows that everybody is perfect. As we grow, develop and socialise we can lose touch with that brilliance and often become somebody we’re not. Chris founded his Dorset based company Upping Your Elvis in 2009 to help people reconnect with their inner genius and once again become confident in being who they truly are. The Guardian recently described Chris as a long haired, twinkly eyed cross between Richard Branson and a wizard.
