If you need to get away from the stress and the hurry and scurry of life it is time to focus your energy. Ask yourself what it is you need to get done, set some goals so you can have a measure of what success looks like. Focus on the present and what are your wants, not shoulds in life! What do you want to do? What a great question. You can not be everything to all people, say NO when you will be stretched to far to do what is being asked of you. Learn to ask for help, and learn how to plan ahead for life’s curve balls. Managing overall anxiety may come from checking in with yourself, medication, meditation, or talking to a therapist.
- Have a vision and create some goals for yourself about what you would like the pace of your life to be.
- One way to slow down in life is to focus on “wants” rather than “shoulds.”
- Learning to say no is important, and if you feel guilty about it later on, ride it out.
