We’ve all have those moments when things get a bit too overwhelming for us. Those times when you feel there’s not enough air in the room. You know what I mean. Let me tell you, your not alone! This year has kicked my butt severely. From getting a new place, to working overtime at my full time job, and planning for graduation, I have to admit I didn’t think I was going to make it. Some of you probably have more on your plate, but I find that when I do the following throughout the day everything seems to balance out.
I don’t know how to say this enough but finding the time to focus on your breathing really helps you focus and relieve stress. Somethings in the moment of completing our ” to do list” when hold our breath in the process and that gets us tense and rigid. What I’ve done is find quiet spaces to just practice my breathing without having to worry about coworkers, family, or friends interrupting that moment.
2. Drink Tea
Some of you are probably at your third cup of coffee by mid morning. That was me a few years ago. i still love my cup of coffee, but I’ve limit myself to one great cup in the morning. I find that when I drink tea through out the day I’m more alert and effective. Coffee can make you anxious and jittery. That’s not the mood you want to be in all day. If you want to be your best self, it’s better to stay present. Tea has a soothing and calming affect.
Laughter has so much healing power. When I’m surrounded by friends, family, and people with good vibes that has the power to lighten up a mood in any room. Focusing on a task so intently can reduce our creativity. Taking a break and getting your spirits up can help you get back to completing whatever it is you have to do much more efficiently. So go ahead take a break and smile. You deserve it.

for you, Lord, have never forsaken those who seek you.
