Enjoying the Process
Have you ever felt stressed out or overwhelmed?
Well, I have. Read more to find out how I remember to slow down and breathe more often.
In the video below, I talk about overcoming struggle, stress, and the feeling of being completely overwhelmed. We're six weeks into the new year and I needed to step back, take a deep breath, and realize that I am not in this alone. Great news, neither are you! To me, it has been extremely important to not always focus on the large scale of things but to really slow down, enjoy the process, and be aware of all of the beautiful moments that are happening all around me. Tune in to hear more and feel free to share tips, pointers, and examples of how you overcome the feelings of being stressed.
“It's so easy to caught up in all the things you have to do instead enjoying what you've already done.”
We get so caught up in always thinking about what's next, what's to come, or what's happened. Instead of, focusing on what's right in front of us. Stay present in the moment!! I can't express this enough. It is our responsibility to train our brains to let some of those unwanted thoughts to just come and go. When that happens, it allows to stay present and focus on what you're doing right here and right now. As a woman, I feel like I'm constantly thinking about ALL the things I need to do, say, or act on and I used to get so caught up in those thoughts instead of focusing on the right now. But, it takes practice. It is not something that just magically changes overnight.
The choice is yours.
In the long run, we shape our lives, and we shape ourselves. The process never ends until we die. And the choices we make are ultimately our own responsibility. - Eleanor Roosevelt
So, what are you going to do to start making these changes? Start small. Maybe start with a short meditation in the morning to slow your thoughts down. Maybe you start a journal to get some of those thoughts down on paper. You could go workout and release those built up endorphins. Whatever you decide to do, keep doing it over and over until it becomes a habit. This will help with not necessarily adding more things to your plate but allowing more time for you to slow your roll, take a deep breath, and show up as your whole self.
