How many of you are tired of all the everyday stress, from all this nationwide turmoil, we are currently experiencing? Who is ready for it to end?
What do you think is creating all this turmoil?
Some things that have helped me, that I wanted to share with you.
First, have no fear. Showing fear and panic does nothing to help others or yourself. Try to remain calm and take deep breaths. Take deep breaths and then exhale. Do this every minute for about five minutes. In and out. In, out. In and out. Breath in and breath out. Take a deep breath and then exhale. Continue for five minutes. This exercise really helps me.
Try not to let others upset or provoke you. Some people know how to push the buttons of others, that is for sure. Do not allow others to pull your trigger or get you riled up. Do not give others power over you. Stay away from others if you do not get along with them or go to him or her and try to work things out. Or, just stay away from certain people if you have to.
Realize that even though life is not as it used to be and America is going through many changes, to just try to relax and realize that things have a way of working out. They may not be the way we want things to work out, but things do have a way of working out, eventually. Be it a good or bad solution.
Do not give up. Giving up and having a nervous breakdown, solves nothing but a good cry from time to time, which is very therapeutic. Men, it is ok to tear up and cry from time to time. Men have much to learn from women. Women know how to cry more than men and know how to release their tears easier than men, from what I see and what I have seen.
Talk to others to release some anger, either on the phone or in-person or through a computer visual call. I talk to many people weekly on the phone and realize that many are going through so much and if I just listen more and be more caring, this is so much appreciated by others. You might want to even consider getting counseling if you feel like things are getting out of hand and you are not coping very well. We can all use a caring ear, at times, and someone who will show he or she cares about us. Remember, we are all going through things. Some are doing better, than others.
Realize, that life is about change. Sometimes, things change, whether we want them to change or not. Change can be good or bad. It depends on our viewpoint of the change. Change can be very stressful.
Be kind to yourself and be kind to others and be respectful. Even if you are having a difficult day. If you snap at someone, be willing to apologize to that person if you gave someone chewing out. We are all human and we all make mistakes. I make many but I have learned how to apologize when I make a mistake and make the mistake right.
Exercise your mind and body daily. Both need a workout.
Eat and drink healthy. Try to eat home-cooked meals and stay away from fast foods, if you can.
Write down things that you are thankful for. I do this weekly to put down on paper, the things I have to be appreciative of.
Try to be more forgiving and understanding and realize that everyone is going through a difficult time.
Ask others for help, when and if you need it.
Get out of your house or home, at least weekly. Even if it is just going for a walk.
Plant a garden or have inside plants to take care of. Spend as much time with family as you can and love one another and show each other, that you care and want what is best for one another. End of suggestions and ideas that have helped me.
