If you are always tired or always stressed, you will find that your energy will start to drain. You may feel that you are trapped in a bad vicious cycle and that it does not allow you to be in control of your life.
It’s about time to get out of this. If you want to reduce stress and feel calmer, then do not miss these tips to achieve it. From now on you can be more patient and live in full calm and harmony.
Let go of what drains your energy
If you think that right now is the end of the world because of the amount of stress you feel … then you need to think about what is the factor that is weighing you down, and let it go! You will realize how the world does not end and the planet continues to rotate like every day. Stressing yourself in a specific situation will not help you, it is better to focus on the solutions.
Take a deep breath
The next time you are faced with a stressful situation that makes you want to rush or makes you feel stressed, stop what you’re doing for a minute and take the following steps:
1- Take 5 deep breaths
2- Imagine that all that stress leaves your body with each exhalation
3- Smile! If necessary, fake that smile. Although it seems difficult, it is difficult to be angry with a smile on your face
Feel free to repeat these steps whenever necessary, whether at home, at work, or while driving. Every moment is good to heal your mind and make you feel better.
After your breaths, you will have to be aware of the rhythm you have in your life. If it’s too fast, now is the time to slow down and start being aware of what makes you feel bad.
You can analyze your body to find out which part of your body is most tense. Gently massage those areas of your body that are most stressed to promote relaxation. You can even, while doing the massage, think of relaxing places.
Can this help you to be calmer? Much more than you imagine. Slow down when you eat to learn to be more patient (and lose some weight and avoid the annoying gas of having eaten quickly). If you eat fast you will eat more than you need. Pay attention to the flavor, texture and aroma of each dish.
If you chew slowly while trying to guess all the ingredients that were used to prepare the dish, you will be practicing patience.
Enjoy the way of life
There are people who think that they will find happiness when they achieve their goals. Nothing is further from reality. If you focus on the end result, you will end up exhausted and unmotivated before your time . Therefore, to get things you must enjoy the way to get them. The best way to do it is to prepare yourself small goals so that you can achieve them and especially later, reward yourself for it.
Change your thoughts and start giving yourself constant positive comments to increase your patience, be motivated and have more joy along the way. Happiness when you reach the great goal will be even greater because you will have enjoyed the process.
Remember that you are a person, with your flaws and your virtues. You don’t want to be perfect in everything because perfection just doesn’t exist. The calm is within you and if you practice a little calm, relaxation and patience you can begin to notice the big changes in your life.
