Staying calm in the midst of chaos isn’t always easy, especially when we bring social media into the mix. It can be tricky to stay on top of our feelings when drama online and you have to work online, but there are many ways to stay relaxed. In this blog post, I am going to share some tips to help you stay relaxed in the midst of chaos or drama. These tips are tried and tested.
How to relax in the midst of chaos
Focus on what elevates
I scroll past different types of news online and I ignore majority of them. News is not something I seek out or watch, so I tend to not see majority of them. I rather focus on what elevates me then dwell on what doesn’t. It is important to stay aware of what is going on but it id important you know the difference between staying aware of what is happening and dwelling on what is happening. The former is what you need to do.
Have a routine
It is really important to have a daily routine that works for your family. That way you know what needs to be done and you can stay on top of your day and not get carried away with the confusion and chaos. You can create a flexible routine that allows you change things around during the day but still gives you that safety net as well. I find that my days are a lot better when I stick to my routine.
Eat healthy foods
This tip is a big one. You are what you consume, and this is why you need to ensure you are eating healthy to stay healthy. I have been a Vegetarian for over a year now and it has completely changed my life. Ensure you only eat healthy foods to keep your body in good shape.
Get enough sleep
Getting enough sleep is really important especially now. The power of a good night sleep can never be overemphasised. We all need to get enough sleep to keep our body and mind healthy. Try going to bed an hour early everyday for a week and see how you feel.
Many of us spend time worrying about things we have no business worrying about. It is important to worry less in order to stay healthy and happy. Worry leads to more stress, and that is really the last thing many of us need. Try as much as possible to take your mind off whatever you may be worrying about and spend time doing what you enjoy.
Listen to music
Good music heals the soul and that is one of the reasons why I ensure I listen to good music everyday. Some of my favourite artistes are Cece Winans, Enya, William McDowell, Adele, Mercy Chinwo and many more.
