Life can be so hectic with all that we typically have on our plates. Everyday you’re racing out the door to beat traffic, drop kids off, get to work and struggling to be your best self. This can leave you feeling overworked, under-appreciated, frustrated, tired, down and out. We’ve all been there, more than once. I bought the t-shirt, forgot about and bought it again.
Hi, my name is Kendra and I am the tired club president.
Operating in this space will drain you and keep you from living your best life. You can’t enjoy or live your best life if you’re operating at less than half of your best self. Here are 3 simple keys that will help you relax, reset, and refocus without taking too much of your already limited time.
You’re sitting at your desk and an email hit’s your already overloaded inbox from a needy client that reads, “URGENT”. Immediately your blood rushes to your head, the coffee you drank less than an hour ago no longer has its effect and you just want to scream. Before you type that nasty email response to your client who thinks that every minuscule need is URGENT, stop.
Take the time to just Pause. Take a moment to breath in the moment and let out all of the negative emotions and energy you’re feeling. Do this a couple of times to make sure you’ve gotten all of the negativity out of your bones before you proceed. This will help you calm yourself and rid yourself of the negative energy you feel at that moment. After you’ve taken the needed amount of breathes to put your mind back at ease, you’re ready for the next step.
Now you’re ready to reflect on the what, why, and how. What is causing you this stress, anxiety, or negative energy? Why is it causing you to feel the way you feel and why are you letting it? How should you respond? By taking the time to reflect, you give yourself time to really think about things from a different perspective, than you would have had before. You allow yourself the time to think things through and this allows you to refocus your energy in a more positive way. Ever heard the saying, ‘Think before you_?” That’s what this step allows you to do, think before you act or speak so that you’re coming from the best possible place at all times. Now that you’ve taken the time to take a breather and reflect, it’s time to act on YOUR best behalf before you act on anyone else’s.
Before you respond, take the time to pray or meditate. Whatever you do in your own spiritual time, do that in this moment. This will give you time to seek spiritual guidance. This is the best way to ensure that you’re always coming from the best place possible while dealing with life’s issue’s.
In order to live your best life, you’ve got to be your best self. Like the Snicker’s commercial, you’re not yourself when you’re hungry, you’re not yourself when you’re hungry for good internal vibes.
That’s it! In those 3 steps, you can create positive vibes at all times. These steps can help you ensure that you always take a proactive approach instead of being a reactive mess.
Remember the three key steps, PAUSE, PONDER, AND PRAY!
