Living a Stress-free, Worry-free Life   Leave a comment

Wait a second.

Stress-free, worry-free doesn’t mean a perfect life.

What I’m talking about is choosing to live your life in a manner and awareness that clears your headspace. The idea behind this is largely based upon the “don’t worry” idea.

If you can’t do anything about it, don’t worry about it, because you can’t change it.

If you can do something about it, do it, so you stop worrying about it.

Worrying about life is not going to change your life; you are. There will always be parts of your life that are not perfect, aspects of life that are out of your control and can make you feel overwhelmed with your life. But at the same time, instill in yourself the ideas that you are doing the best that you can and be okay with that. On the one hand, you should dream, and dream big, and aspire to fulfill those dreams. But what many people fail to consider in their dreams is the journey and difficult road it takes to get there, which should be experienced to the fullest as well. Dreams are no doubt important to bringing meaning and direction into life, but at the same time, you need to keep a perspective and awareness of life in the present. Also, take a step back and remember why you are doing something. What greater value does it hold in your life?
Keeping the present in mind is different from accepting failure of a dream, it is just keeping life in perspective and keeping you connected to reality.

I’m not going to say that when you’re stressed or worried, you need to take a break from your work and get out, either mentally or physically, because in all honesty, sometimes that isn’t possible, but let yourself breathe, remember yourself, and remind yourself of the scope of life. You need to take the current moment in the context of your life to truly experience the moment in the present.

Smile! Let go for a second and smile. Go on, just do it. See, it’s getting a little better already!

All my support in conquering what ever has got you down for now, and just relax! 🙂
