Today was a long day. I feel like everytime I stopped to gather my thoughts, I just became overwhelmed with feelings of having to do “this and that”.
Things with my health have been progressing and I’ve been making a ton of changes, something I’ll catch you up on later.
Unfortunately, along with these changes come those feelings of doubt, uncertainty, and a certain level disappointment.
Not one to look on the negative side, I’ve decided to turn these into positive things. Even though things were uneventful in a certain way, I still felt overwhelmed. That’s what worrying gets you! There’s no positives to that.
Now I’m taking these moments to relax and rejuvenate my mind.
Let’s talk about ways to relax.
In a society where we’re always told we must be busy at all times to be productive, relaxation can be a challenge. If I had a nickel for everytime I heard people bragging at how “oh my gosh I’m so busy”, I wouldn’t need to work a day in my life.
It almost seems that people are proud of the fact that they are “so busy”. People see busy as efficient, I disagree.
Not only do these busy days leave us feeling tired, warn out, and anxious; they create unwanted stress on our bodies. Enter meditation, yoga, reading, writing, and candles. “Me time” is more important than being busy to the point of exhaustion and guilt.
These are days we need to increase our sense of calm, and understand we need “stillness” in our lives. Don’t allow societies pressure to be busy all the time come into your life. Instead of focusing on being busy, how about turning that focus onto what’s really important, like family and friends.
With that being said, I’m done for the day, time to have some tea, light a candle and relax!
How do you allow yourself to relax?
Do you get sucked in to the busy trap?
