Saturday night, yum.
So much to be happy about right now: simply the fact that it is Saturday night & I have nowhere to be, vino by my side, and a full tummy post thanksgiving day with my wonderful family by my side.
Regardless of all things happy, stress still creeps in my mind & I begin to cater to all the worries and my happiness temporarily vanishes while I occupy my mind with rubbish.
Lately stress has been winning this mental battle & I have been letting it control a lot of my time. Ew, why does this happen I wonder?
My mind is just occupied-
everything just starts to become… stressful & my energy dramatically crashes.
Stress. We all have it. And we all can kill it.
Still stressing? Now what?
We have to find the button inside our self/mind that works like a switch and turns off our worries. Of course everyone’s “off button” will be something unique, we just have to figure out how to find it.
Lately when I find myself stressing about ridiculous things I have to take deep breaths, make sure my phone is as far away from me as possible & stop whatever it is I am doing & start another task that makes me happy.
Example: I am in my apartment looking at all of the crap lying around and i’m stressing about how much I have to clean, so I will start to tidy up a small amount (as much as I have time for) and head to a yoga class or read a book.
If something is stressing me out that I have little control over at the moment I will just do as little or as much as I can contribute at the moment and then I will distract my mind with something happy.
Guys, there is too much to be grateful for around us, am I right?
Stress is trying to take that away from us.
I have to keep reminding myself that we don’t have to have everything 100% perfect all the time. Ya live & ya learn!
How do you keep yourself grounded on times of chaos and stress? PLEASE share. I could use a tip or two… ❤
