When Things Are Not Going Your Way And You're Under Tons Of Stress

Posted

What do you do when things aren't going your way and you're under tons of stress? Here's my action plan.

- First determine what it bothering you? Get out pen and paper and write down each problem.

- Next, determine action steps to help solve each problem. I think action can be hard because sometimes the solution is more difficult than the problem. The key is to either take action on your problems or practice complete acceptance. 

Most important whatever you are feeling no matter how stressful is to feel it and flow with it. Do not tell yourself you can't feel something, accept the negative emotions as well as the positive.

- Create a plan, map out dates on a calendar. When are you going to use those action steps? Schedule out the dates/times.

- Pray and/or meditate on the issue. Imagine that things will be resolved. Everything is working out this way for a reason.

- The secret weapon to life's challenges is faith. Faith in God, faith in the universe etc. Have faith that you don't know everything, things may work out even better or as they should.

- Live in the now. Do not feel emotions from the past or project into the future. Life is right now. Happiness can be achieved right now. Life is meant to be lived you are not meant to be a perfect person or live life perfectly. Life is action in the now. 

- This is a new one for me, but instead of focusing just on being happy thinking I want an interesting life. I want to be an interesting person. Even though something may be stressful in the short term I want to think back on my day and feel "Wow that was interesting, I'm glad I did that!"
