How to feel in peace? How to find that peaceful state of mind besides all the criumstances?
How to change current criumstances?
How to get better overcoming stressful situations? How to start a successful journey and let go of anxiety?
This is possible! In all situations! Though it involves a hard work, acceptance of ourselves, our current life, courage and mindfulness. And to start working on it to improve it step by step. It starts with valuing ourselves.
Let's start this journey...It's worthed.
Well, maybe let´s say our life can be kind of mess now. Too many problems that overwhelm us, so little support from others, maybe we feel we work hundred percent and it´s not enough. Than what?
I also feel this sometimes. But there is an importance to start differently. From a different point of view. To put ourselvees in the centre. To find calm in chaos, in difficulties. To be aware that we also need someone to be there for us. We do so much work for others and sometimes it may even feel it´s not appreciated as we would wish and it´s been taken for granted. And what about our well being? Everybody forgot about us?
Well, this is our responsibility to shower ourselves with support, with love, with kind words, with self care. We cannot run out of fuel! Than there would become even bigger problem.
I personally also sometimes feel so much alone, not having family, have to take care about my children´s need and their well being in this difficult time. To be that collum, that strong rock for them. But what if we have uncertainty about ourselves if we are able to manage it all?
I realized that we have to be able to put ourselves into a calm state of mind. We can do this by changing our negative self talk into possitive. We must focus on good things and trust ourselves. Sometimes even if the things don't go in the way we wish we must find trust in process and find peace in it. We must genuinely believe that our things that we are concern about will turn out well. We must believe in this so much. But at the same time we must be aware that the situation can ve solvedvesolved by different means that we can visualize. Maybe we find someone, or find different way to do it or maybe this problems we have now or the delay in our fulfilled dreams can be big blessings for us. Maybe it trachea Is something essential what we have to know. What we have to master. The perfect time will come, and we will be ale to lounch it in possitive and opened mind, without fear, with a courage and love. Because love can beat all the fear. And It's the truth always. If we do something with love and we are giving all our loving energy into it, it certainly can move the mountain. So we must have patience.
To be able to continue in our exciting journey, in our beautifull colourfull future, we must calm ourselves and work on our well being. We must nurture our body with rest and nourishing food, our mind with supportive and possitive thoughts, our emotions with love and forgivness, with distancing ourselves from toxic people and also working on our spiritual journey. I personaly believe in God and Jesus his son, that showed us love and still can help us to be filled with love more and more. But we are people different cultures and different religions and I deeply respect everybody´s spiritual way of letting love and kindness into our lives.
Now I just want to mention the Basic steps to lower the stress level. They are just simple things that we all know, but we should start to imply it into our lives. They are so so simple, but also essential to start with.
Sleep enough - we should always be aware that our body needs rest. It´s like our mobile that when it´s low of battery we must reacharge it. Or all the animals, do you see that they know how to rest. They don´t skip sleep to do more. We cannot enjoy beauty of another day if we are so tired. It doesn´t help us to do our things instead of our good sleep. We should go to bed in about the same time and get up at about same time. And really have that time for us to sleep well..
Drink enough water - I know this everybody knows, but we maybe need to hear it over and over to realize that water in so needed in our body. To prevent headaches, to be more productive, to function well.
Nourishing meals - Meals not just to fill us, but those that gives us minerals and good feelings and lovely time. Our body is here for us doing an amazing work, so please we should value it and prepare for ourselves meal that is good for us. Even if it talkes more time, but when we love ourselves we also should give nourishing meals to ourselves. Just as much as we care about others. Preparing meals is not a waste of time at all.
Being grateful and happy NOW - now is the time in which we live. We think much about past, trying to figure out what we did wrong, what actually happened, if we could do something different. Well, we must accept our past even if we did mistakes, even if we didn´t do enough of what we should. It´s not important only important time is now. And we should be gratefull for our life, for our breathing, for our body, for our chances, for the sunlight, for the new day. And find happiness in these moments. Be content, work slowly one thing at a time about our things but not to stress about future that hasn´t come yet. My brother died sudden at young age, with no illness, great health, great body, with optimistic mind, at home with his family and sudden with no warning. And that made me question the situation how come? Can we even plan anything? This really happens? Like this? And it gave me the big lesson that future is a gift, that we are getting every day. We must accept it with humble heart and being gratefull for every moment and find beauty in it. Because present it´s what matters.
Exercise - work on your body to be in shape because it brings you happiness and energy. I like long walks in countryside, spending time in my garden, and even that can be part of our daily routine. There are many videos on youtube that we can use to exercise, but we should give at least thirty minutes a day to work with our musels and put our body into shape to improve our well being.
Possitive selftalk - talk to yourself like you do with your friend, or your loved one, or your child. Give yourself care and encouragement, praise yourself and love your body, your look, your work, you. If noone does it you can talk to you and tell yourself how great work you do, how beautiful person you are, and how many things you are capable. Give yourself courage to be able to accomplish anything. Tell yourself that you trust you that you can manage it. And never talk negative about anything. Unblock yourself from all the negative selftalk and cheerish yourself with attention and love. Because more love you are able to give yourself, the more loving person you become and more love that you will be able to give to others as well.
