I have been trying for years to become de-stressed.
There are many kinds of remedies, but I feel that the best ones are those that work for you. Your own special way of staying calm and centered in your daily life can be a life saver for you someday. In this hectic world, people just seem to strive on staying busy and creating their own stress!
My Special Moments are in Meditation
I have been meditating for a few years, and it helps me, but it is definitely a skill that one has to develop especially if you are fidgety. People who have a hard time sitting still really have a difficult time with learning to meditate or just plain relax!
If you have been trying meditation for a long time, and it does not seem to work for you, then it is time to switch it up. You may want to try relaxation instead. Just lying down with some special music to ponder on is a good way.
And what works for you right now may not work in the future, so to become stress-less, you need a tool box of things to do and try.
For example, when I feel that I am going to have a rough day, I start it our with some sort of yoga routine. It might just be a few minutes of downward facing dog pose so that I get some blood to my brain, or it may be just listening to some soft music that helps me to feel calmer. Or just being quiet. Sometimes when I am driving, I turn off the radio just to concentrate on one thing- my driving!
Accepting The Way Things Are
Accept that your life will have some ups and downs. Try your best to let them mostly be ups! Manage yourself carefully so that you do not have to rush off somewhere. Give yourself enough time to get where you need to go. Stop the rushed living and find pleasure in daily activities.
The world is a beautiful place, start to enjoy it with some peace in your life. Make every single moment count.
