Category: The Best You, Spread the Movement,
I’ve been catching myself feeling frustrated and overwhelmed much more than usual and it may be due to the fact that I’m feeling a little nervous and worried about how I can achieve my goals.
You know when you write down those lofty dreams of yours and decide to make them into measurable goals… and then it hits you that you’re the only one who can make it possible? You realize the weight of it is all on your shoulders and it’s exhilarating yet so nerve-racking! I’m really unsure as to how I’m going to be able to create all of it but as I get lost in these emotions, here are the 6 practices I use to calm myself into a better, calmer state of mind.
1. Get your body moving
go for a run, to the gym or just stand up and start walking around
2. Listen to something that lifts your spirits
for me, I always listen to worship music to get in a more grateful mood, otherwise some good vibin’ music will do
3. Let out the steam
it’s tough for me to keep my emotions inside so I HAVE to release it whether it be talking, venting to someone, tweeting, sharing a post via social media
4. Eat something you know your body will appreciate
whether I’m in a burger mood, or a green juice mood… I always gravitate towards something that I know my body will appreciate, whether it be mentally or physically
5. Think about what you’re grateful for
the worship music really helps with this because it helps me to start praising Jesus and reflect on what I’m so blessed to have
regardless of what religion you practice, or if you just meditate.. It’s always helpful to get inside your own head
As we continue on this journey together… hopefully these habits can help you to stay calm and centered in difficult times as well! Good luck loves.
love simply, love beyoutifully,
