I don’t know about you, but nearly everyone I know is freaking out. Watching the daily news is enough to shake anyone up. Plus, nearly all of us have everyday pressures at work and home that never seem to let up.
Here’s 4 ways to stop freaking out and refresh yourself …
Refresh your mind
a. Take a news fast. Turn off the tube and shut down the smartphone for a while. You’ll be amazed by it.
b. Practice mindfulness. Why jump into a future of doom and gloom. Instead anchor yourself in this moment and enjoy the outdoors, cuddle your pet, have a good laugh.
c. Listen to Guided Mindfulness Meditations: Practicing Presence & Finding Peace. The net effect is calmer nerves, a brighter outlook, stronger memory, sharper focus, and a more balanced perspective.
