Sit with it……… is it time for you to just….breathe💜

 

Sit With It…..Just Breathe

Have you ever been so stressed out you found  yourself at the bottom of a Fritos bag or at the bottom of a 1/2 gallon of ice cream? Are your smiling right now?  Been there?  We are so self destructive when we do not feel like we have control of a situation.  Guess what?  While every decade has had its stressors we are officially in the most stressful.  Not for the reasons you may think.  It is because so much is expected of us.  Mandatory Overtime, working the jobs of 2 or 3 people,  and kids in 10 activities.  Keeping up with the house, the healthy eating and activities, answering every email and text within minutes or someone may think you are mad at them or even worse something happened to you.

So what do we do?

We need to recognize we can not be everything to everyone.  We need to put ourselves on our TO DO list. Let’s think about something.  Have you ever eaten something and the problem went away? How about drank too much? Maxed out the credit cards?  Whatever your vice did it ever make the problem go away.  Or was it just worse and you have a new emotion to deal with?  Guilt? Sometimes we need to just sit with it.  Feel your feeling and ask yourself is this something I can “fix” or “change”?  If yes,  make a plan to do just that. If not either learn to Make the best of it or change your situation.  Take a step back and see it for what it is.

A few ideas of how to just sit with it

Journal

Listen to music

Meditate

Yoga

Diffuse and Breathe

A short Walk

Dance

Read a motivational book

 

 

It’s time to stop leaning on our vices and finding a way to handle this stressful life we live in.  I don’t see it getting better if we do not figure out how to handle it.  So sit with it and breathe.  You deserve to take that time.

  1. These are wonderful ideas. I find myself stressed and feel so bad about world problems that I could never change in three lifetimes. And for that reason, I give thanks each day that I have the best family ever, live in the best country, and don’t have the stressors that so many others do.

    These are great tips to help us all.

  2. Hi Paris~you had me at breathe! You’ll be glad to know that I did many of the things that you listed, today! Thank you for helping me get my head on straight about stress. When I can do things to take care of myself, my family benefits and I’m happier. I am grateful for you~💜🙏

  3. Spot on Paris! It has taken me a long time to feel my feelings and not try to eat or drink them away.
    I’m breathing and staying in my lane!
    XOXO

  4. I especially identify with the need to learn we don’t have to be everything to everyone and putting ourselves on our own “to do” list… thanks, as always, for sharing your wisdom.
