There are times in our life when we all feel overworked, overwhelmed and pulled in different directions. Sometimes this can even happen on a daily basis. If you often find yourself in a tizzy, here’s something you can do to overcome that feeling of spinning out of control:
Pause Breathe Gather Your Thoughts
Yep, that’s it. Take time to consciously pause and physically take a breath. It gives you time to gather your thoughts and stops you from reacting emotionally. It helps you look at the situation a little more logically. We’ve all been faced with a challenge where we reacted in the moment and said or did something we wish we could take back. I’m telling you, this simple formula can help. The next time you find yourself feeling anxious or like you are about to regret what comes out of your mouth, Pause, Breathe and Gather your Thoughts.
I understand that this will be difficult when you face an intense moment, but with practice it becomes easier and easier. With practice, you actually begin to form a new habit that will help make your life a lot easier. Give it a try and see how it works for you.
