Breathing: Simple, quick, easy! Take a few moments to breathe in inner peace and exhale your anxieties and worries….aaaahhhhhh.
De-clutter: Subconscious clutter and chaos can affect your state of mind and productivity. Tidy up your living space and create a pleasant environment; my dorm room was never cleaner as it was during finals week!
Prioritize: Unlike procrastination, prioritizing is systematic; tackling one thing at a time can help you feel less stressed and get things done more quickly. If you have 30 stepping stones creating a path across a river, jumping over 6 or 7 may seem faster, but isn’t taking one step at a time guaranteed to get you across? Completing projects and moving through tasks methodically can provide you with a sense of accomplishment and reward.
Positivity: Developing a positive attitude can help ease inner tensions. Encourage and help others with your thoughtful words. Reaching out to others with an outgoing, optimistic attitude can attract the same in return for you. Seeking spiritual help can provide you with words of advice and ways to help deal with stress and mental health. These are not new concepts people. Working to empower yourself and to not depend on the opinions of others can release the burdens on your mind. Subconsciously, when we work only to please others and not to improve ourselves it can be impossible to relax. Developing a detachment to praise and criticism can lead to relaxation and inner peace by decreasing the importance of others’ views. As a wise man once said, “Don’t worry, be happy.”
Sleep: Get enough restful sleep to take on your day!
