We all go through different seasons in our life that are easier to balance than others. Sometimes it can be hard for us to take a step back and see the big picture when things start feeling out of control. Although these “seasons” seem never ending – this too shall pass. One great thing about struggles (no matter how big or small) is what we learn about ourselves and life as we go through them. It’s crucial we don’t let the dim parts of life take away from all the wonderful success’ we have waiting for us in the future. Here are a few things we’ve picked up over the years that help stay on top of life when the goin’ gets tough…
Gratitude Tracking – We all know gratitude it important but sometimes we forget how to practice it. One way that has recently showed itself to me is taking five minutes in the morning to jot down a few things you’re grateful for. This really helps you take a breather and realize life is so good! Each day challenge yourself to write new things and not be too repetitive.
Yoga – I’m a firm believer that yoga is for EVERYONE, even the fast-paced people. You don’t have to be super flexible, zen or patient to be a yogi. I, personally, can never sit still and yet I still manage to reap the benefits of yoga. It helps you take a breath and get back in touch with yourself. It’s easy to get so caught up in all the roles we play in life that we forget to come back down to Earth – that’s why we have yoga.
Situation Relation and Conversation – Treat yourself to the joys of conversation and a good vent session. Most importantly though, find a person who can relate to your situation as close as possible. This helps you get the advice you need from someone who’s been there. Sometimes the answers don’t make themselves present to us when we are waiting for them to magically appear – go out and find them. Don’t be a waiter be a go-getter!
