How To Find Control In Chaos
Here’s the challenge: finding calm in chaos.
How many times have you found yourself in a CRAZY hectic situation, only to find yourself overreacting or completely shutting down?
We’ve all been there. We’ve all felt burnt out, stressed out and bummed out after handling an overwhelming situation unsuccessfully.
If this is something you find yourself struggling with on a consistent basis, consider this. What if you had a plan for any time you felt that ball of stress growing in your chest?
It’s kind of like the “count to ten” rule you employ every time you feel like you’re going to blow up at one of your peeps. Except more important.
As a modern chick, you know how important it is to keep your cool, whether you're chauffeuring the kids around to a million activities, or putting the finishing touches on a big presentation at work.
I found a super helpful article with proven tips to help build calming habits. Because, let’s face it, chaos is a part of life. The only thing you can control is how you respond to it.
(To all my happy yogis out there, I have a feeling you’ll love this the most.)
Take in these three quick tips to help you feel a sense of calm right now.
- Just breathe. In through the nose for four seconds, and then out for another four. Take a step back and practice.
- Get grounded. Think about your feet. Be aware of the literal things that are anchoring you to the world. You’ll feel much more centered.
- Find your mantra. Keep it to one word. If you’re feeling stressed, take a deep breath and exhale, saying your mantra. Pick something calming like “happy” or “freedom”.
Feeling better already? I knew you would.
