Where does your body go when it needs to recharge? After a long days work, most of us find the path from our front door to our bed a highly anticipated journey. Just like your body needs to reboot after a long day of work, your mind also deserves the same reprieve! As creative, constant thinking life planners, our minds can easily get burnt out. It’s important to find a creative space to allow our minds and creativity to rejoice. This creative space can be a physical space or a mental space that allows you to clear your mind to make space for new thoughts and ideas.
Today’s society has the habit of clinging to material things. We get sucked into infomercials and cunning advertising that leads us to believe that acquiring more things will help make our lives easier and more efficient. More things = more clutter, more clutter= more stress.
ob·ses·sion // noun : an idea or thought that continually preoccupies or intrudes on a person's mind. The key word in this definition is intrudes. There is no such thing as a healthy obsession if it increases anxiety and intrudes the space in your mind meant for happy thoughts. Obsessive thinking is commonly thought of in those who have Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, but can be present in even minor anxiety disorders or just plain stressful situations. Recognizing the negativity these thoughts bring, can help us to eliminate them from our minds, and move on with life in a more positive manner.
“It’s that time of year…” where stress invades your every pore. Well - let’s be honest, that type of stress isn’t just reserved for a certain season. To be honest, there’s no predicting when an unmanageable amount of stress will add up. Although there is no way to know when you’ll become completely overwhelmed, there are plenty of ways to manage and reduce the impacts. Although these ideas may seem like common sense, constantly remind yourself to turn these recommendations into habits and you will be on your way to a stress-free lifestyle.
Between work, working out, and your busy social life—the only way to stay sane is to keep yourself organized. It may seem dramatic, but nothing is worse than feeling like you’ve lost control of your life by dragging yourself through mundane activities.
