“It does not matter how slowly you go as long as you do not stop.” – Confucius
Do you ever feel like life is always in full speed? You ever feel like your life’s been put on fast forward? I feel that way a lot in my day-to-day life. Life moves so fast and with such speed, it can be hard to feel like you are in control of anything. A lot of times what causes us to feel like this is when we are experiencing anxiety. A lot of times when the mind is anxious, it’s racing and trying to keep busy with thoughts that are even busier. We forget just how fast time really goes. Some days it feels like 12 hours might as well be 5 minutes. Other days feel more like 12 light years have passed before the day is over. Life is all about finding balance and peace. We all need peace of mind that no matter what, there is always going to be a quiet place within us that remains calm and in control. How do you do that? Take a look at the guidelines below 🙂
1.) Assess your life! Is there anything in your life that is causing you stress or anxiety? If so, try to eliminate or minimize that source of stress.
2.) Remain calm on the inside! If you find your mind wandering off in all different directions because you can’t seem to think, try to take a nap, meditate, relax, etc. Sometimes your brain just needs time to process lots of information all at once.
3.) Talk! A lot of times if we can talk about what is on our minds we find it can help us sort out any confusing information that might be circling around in our minds. **Fact** Our brains can actually be functioning like a broken record, they can keep going over the same stuff again and again until we change the way we think.
4.) Take good care of yourself! Remember that at the end of the day, you need to be your number one priority. So, if there is something getting in the way of you maintaining good health, you may want to figure out what that is and fix it.
“It is not selfish to love yourself, to take care of yourself, and to make your happiness a priority. It’s necessary.” – Mandy Hale
