4 Quick Ways to Soothe Your Mind and Relieve Your Anxiety
Feb 06, 2019
Feeling anxious? Stress and anxiety are at an all-time high, due to our fast-paced and pressured work and career culture. It affects everyone from high-school kids to Fortune 500 CEOs. Here are four quick tips to relieve yourself from your anxiety and soothe your mind.
Skip Unimportant Tasks
Let's face it: Some of the tasks on your to-do list aren't really that important and won't matter in the long run. There are always little things that you can leave out of your daily routine. Doing so can make a big difference in your overall stress level, as you simply aren't spreading yourself out so much. For some people, it's checking their email or Whatsapp group chat every few hours; for others, it's updating their Facebook page daily.
There are many things that you can outsource to others, both personal tasks and business tasks. Ask yourself whether the extra calmness and freedom you will feel is not worth the money you will pay to outsource your tasks. Whether it is having someone clean your dishes at night or having someone manage your social media accounts, there are always cheap ways to outsource your personal and business tasks.
Be Okay With All Outcomes
Much of your stress will come from worrying about how things will turn out. Start being okay with any outcome. Visualize different outcomes and think about how much of a difference they will really make in the long run and in the big picture of things. We tend to exaggerate the long-term importance of small things.
Keep Things Simple
We also tend to overcomplicate things. Keep things simple. Do not overthink things; become comfortable with being quick and decisive right away. Most of the time, overthinking and overplanning things don't help in the end anyway.
