Stress isn’t always a bad thing.
Some of it actually serve as good motivation for us to get stuff done and step out of our comfort zones.
Other times, it’s just unnecessary and a result of our own doing.
And unfortunately for us, we actually face a lot more stress from our own doing.
Like allowing yourself to be affected by negative thoughts.
Like procrastinating and leaving things to the very last minute.
These are all stress caused by us.
Imagine if you ignored those negative thoughts and didn’t let them faze you.
Imagine if you didn’t procrastinate and worked on your projects early.
The stress wouldn’t exist.
And depending on how often you’re stressed by negative thoughts or procrastination or anything else.
Eliminating those sources of stress means eliminating a lot of anxiety and inner turmoil.
But it’s easier said than done.
Because it essentially means undoing years of ingrained behaviour.
But it’s about time we stop stressing ourselves out.
Take a deep belly breath and let it all go.
Bring your awareness to the present moment instead of fixating on the negative thoughts in your mind.
Notice how your breath feels as you inhale and exhale.
Notice how your rear feels as you’re seated on a chair.
Notice how your feet feel against the ground.
Whenever you feel overwhelmed by life, just say this to yourself.
“Here and now”.
Get out of your head and bring awareness to the present.
There’s nothing else that’s free of worry, judgement and anxiety than the present moment.
