Staying grounded in the midst of chaos is a superpower. There are a lot of things going on in the world that we live in and sometimes the chaos can feel overwhelming. This is why it is important to have ready tips to try out when it feels like the outside world is getting too crazy.
If you are struggling to stay calm because of life adversities, here are some life changes you could implement starting now:
Stay off social media
If you are struggling to cope the first thing to do is to stay off social media. There’s no need to keep up with your social media platforms if you are trying to stay grounded. Time off social media and reducing your screen time can do wonders for your overall health so take as much time off as you need.
Switch off the news
I know this may be a hard one for many people to implement but if you are having a hard time dealing with life taking time off the news may be just what you need. You don’t need to keep up with everything going on around you. Plus, you can always play catch-up when you are feeling much better.
Spend time in nature
If you are struggling with life and all, one thing I would recommend is spending adequate time in nature. So going for walks, jogging, cycling, and so on. I love walking around in the countryside. It is peaceful and relaxing, and it does wonders for my overall health. I highly recommend you spend time in nature on a daily basis if you can.
Spend time exercising
Now, this is a popular one. Many of us know the benefits of exercising. Exercising helps you stay fit physically and mentally. You don’t need to overdo it but it is worth having a few minutes every day dedicated to staying fit. You can keep your exercise routine light with dancing, jumping jacks, jogging, and the like.
Focus on yourself
Spend time doing things you like, looking after yourself, and focusing on yourself. When you focus on caring for yourself, you would find that you are not easily moved and you stay grounded more and more regardless of what is going on outside of you. Focusing on yourself in a healthy way is one way to deal with life issues and take your focus off things that are outside of your control.

Defo a very good blog post Stella. The S.Media and Internet time is scary. I have a feature on both so I can track my time daily and weekly. I also have a daily notification pop up on FB when I have done an hour.
I can choose to dismiss it however it does make more mindful of the time I’m using.
I have a weekly me time
News wise: it’s rare I turn it on. I pop on my news app 2 or three times a day. I prefer this as I can choose what to read.
I also have a yearly spiritual retreat weekend which is www free as the Internet out there is bad.
Meditation, self help books etc, daily thoughts reading, prayer/affirmative, pen and paper for emptying my head and when there is anger I can’t desolve, the frying pan and pillow tends to work.
I also find helping others (my charity work) a great way of getting out from me.
Gardening and baking is another. I love doing it especially occasion baking. I do it now with our hrsnddaughterer.
What woman doesn’t like to shop and be girly ❤️🙂🙂🙂❤️
It sounds like you are on top of your self-care. That is really good, especially in the times we are in. Stay grounded.
Glad you like the post. Thanks for reading.
Great advice. I believe switching everything off and focusing on what you can control instead of worrying about what you can’t is key to staying grounded. Thank you for sharing 🙏
Yes it is. Thanks for reading.
