How can I be stress-free?
Actually I am not!
There are many parts of my day where I worry or stress about something, however it’s not that often. I try to always focus on the good. I believe in Karma and feel I’m such a good person to others, so it’s not normal for negativity to come my way.
I am also a firm believer in “everything happens for a reason”. The good, the bad or indifferent, these incidents are experiences we are meant to have, to learn from and move forward. Although it is not easy in certain circumstances, its extremely necessary.
At my age I’ve learned not to dwell on things. I do not overthink things. I am one that likes to let it go and forgive. I never forget, I’ve learned not to hold on to something I cannot change. Life is too short and my mind has limited space for negativity.
Here are some examples of how I keep myself and my surroundings positive:
1. Instead of getting angry or upset, take a step back and look at each individual situation. Don’t react until you have determined if it deserves your reaction
2. Hot Tea ☕️ has so many medicinal properties.Try having a cup of tea at the most stressful time of your day. My top 5 teas for relieving stress are Valerian, Lemon Balm, Chamomile, Cinnamon and St. John’s Wart.
3. Having different activities & interests to do during your day are great ways to pull you away from the negative nonsense
