Someone recently asked me about getting frustrated when they feel overloaded, and then shutting down or lashing out.
As I’ve worked with thousands of people in changing their lives, I’ve found this is one of the most common inner narratives there is.
Why do we get stressed out, feel anxiety or feel overwhelmed?
It’s letting go of everything that you might possibly want, to give complete focus on one important thing.
Habit resilience is the ability to bounce back when things don’t go as you planned, to stay positive, to encourage yourself, to forgive yourself, to be loving and compassionate with yourself, to shake it off and start again afresh. To learn and grow from struggles.
Devoting ourselves to those we love helps us to open up to the uncertainty, to relax into it, because we allow our minds to open beyond the smallness of our self-concern.
Here’s the method, to practice if you’re feeling stress, frustration, loneliness, sadness, tiredness.
The more we can move in the right direction of getting more encouragement, the better our chances of success.
Training in doing the things that scare you doesn’t have to be torture. In fact, it can be joyous.
Why are most of us getting heavier over time, despite our best efforts?
Chaos is all around us, and it can stress us out.
What is Vast Mind? It’s opening to something bigger than our self-concern, opening to the freshness of the moment.
You don’t have to do all of these, but there might be a couple of ideas here that work for you.
I’m sure there are a few of you who indulge in this luxury regularly, but most of us don’t make time for solitude on a daily basis.
Check in with your Why. And feel the pleasure, the joy, the love, in your heart.
If you’d like to work on letting go, I would like to offer a simple practice.
