Mental Health – Letting go is good for the soul

I am a recovering worrier! Back in the day, I would worry over everything. These days, I am trying my best to stop worrying, to let go and let God. Letting go is good for the soul. It is a lot easier to worry about every tiny little detail but it does nothing for your mental health. Which is why I now make a conscious effort not to worry about anything. Sometimes, it is easier to let go and not worry, and other times it can be a lot harder. But the more I make an effort to not worry about all the issues on this planet, the easier it becomes.

Letting go is good for the soul

Since I started focusing more on my spiritual life and mindfulness. I have realised that a lot of the things we are so worried about will not happen. However, the danger of worrying about issues bring our focus and attention to these issues, which can lead to us manifesting exactly what we are afraid of. Letting go does not mean we should be reckless or ignore what we are supposed to do. It just means we focus our attention on what we have power over and take our attention away from outcomes and the rest.

 

The benefits of letting go

Here are some of the amazing benefits of letting go –

 

You will sleep better

Letting go will help you sleep better at night. Being a worrier means you will likely be up for most of the night worrying about all sorts. Letting go helps you sleep peacefully and soundly, which is great for your overall health.

 

Goodbye to anxiety and depression

This is one of the most important benefits of letting go is that you can wave goodbye to anxiety, depression and other mental health issues. Dwellling on your problems will only make you feel anxious and depressed. However, if you focus on positivity and things within your power, you will find you no longer feel as anxious or depressed. Focusing on what you have power over and positive outcomes means you feel good which is amazing for your wellbeing.

It leads to positive outcomes

Apart from the fact that letting go helps you sleep better and can get rid of some mental health problems, it can also lead to positive outcomes. The law of attraction means you manifest what you focus on. So if you are a worrier and you focus on all your cares and worries, it is likely you bring them into your reality just by focusing on them. Letting it all go and focusing on positive results and positivity in general means you attract just those into your reality.

 

I know how easy it is to worry. Just look at the Brexit mess for example. That is enough to keep many people up at night for various reasons. But being up all night won’t make the deal come quicker for example but it will mess up your body clock which will only make up more miserable. That’s the way I see it.

Dealing with anxiety as a self employed person

*Collaborative post.

Self employment has always been the dream, and I am grateful I am able to live this life especially with my kids being so young. But being self-employed comes with an unstable income. The uncertainty can be very worrying and the worry could lead to serious anxiety if you let it. I have been a mum for over 5 years now, while running my online business by the side and I have picked up many ways of dealing with anxiety as a self-employed person. Here are a few of the ways I combat anxiety.

Save the money

Running your own business means sometimes it rains with money and sometimes it doesn’t. I have always been more of a saver than a spender, so that helped me in this self-employed journey. I always put money away just incase an unexpected bill comes up, or business becomes really slow the next month. Saving the left over money means I don’t worry about paying my bills the next month.

Ageing my money helps me deal with anxiety, and it is one tip I always recommend to business owners. Save that money. It may come in handy in a few months.

 

Have faith

I don’t really talk about my faith on here because it is not a faith blog, but I believe in God. That faith helps me when anxiety comes knocking. I am a very spiritual person, and my active spiritual life helps me deal with issues that seem impossible.

It may not be your cup of tea but it works great for me. I can’t imagine living a life without my faith in God.

 

Self care

When you are working for yourself, it may be very hard to take out time for self-care. I have started paying more attention to my mental health and the extra attention helps me stay on top of my self-care, which helps get rid of any anxiety. It could be a nice long walk on a beautiful sunny day, or going for a relaxing massage at the spa, or watching a movie at the cinema.

Self care is very important especially when you are a 1 man team.

Take your work seriously

I take my work very seriously and I think that helps me get a steady flow of income. I work every free time I get (more than 40 hours a week) and I believe I am the true definition of a hustler. Nowadays I try to take the as much time as I can afford to take off but I am always working. That helps me stay on top of my bills, keeps my mind busy and get rid of any anxiety.

 

Music helps

Music is good way for me to escape all my problems. It is like food to my soul and I feed on it everyday. I love listening to good music. My Spotify playlists come in very handy. You can easily catch me typing up a post and listening to some cool songs.
