What happens when we are so caught up in the what next creates anxiety, frustration, worry, and fear. One of my favorite ways to break the cycle is meditation. I have a meditation that I do every night. I sit on the beach and I write down all my worries and put them in a basket where I allow a bird to come up and carry the basket and all of my stress over to the other side to heal. Let me tell you that I’m sure my spirit bird is exhausted.
Other ways to stay in the now is to simply close your eyes and breath, paying attention to every breathe you take. It’s proven that living in the now reduces stress. Stopping to the smell the roses is cliché, but helpful in re-setting your soul and re-discovering your gratitude.
It’s not always possible, I know that the most, but if you sense yourself heading into a spin, it’s up to you to stop. I’m sure my spirit bird has friends.
I believe in you.
