I've been hearing from a LOT of people about how they are feeling extra stressed and strangely “emotional” over the past few weeks.
For example, little things they would have normally shrugged off seem to be causing more stress and frustration than usual.
Can you relate?
The stress of it all is adding up fast. I wanted to share some simple things you can do to reduce your stress!
Shift from REACTION mode to PROACTIVE mode.
In my new ebook, the At Home Survival Kit, I mentioned something from Stephen R. Covey’s book, The 7 Habits of Highly Successful People.
When you focus on the things outside of your control (like what’s happening in the world outside your house over the past couple months!), you are in REACTION mode.
That is not a fun place to be. It’s like you’re waiting for the next big problem to hit, so you are always on alert.
But when you shift your focus to the things you CAN control (like your daily habits, how you treat others, your immediate surroundings and your actions) – you move into a PROACTIVE mode. (this is called your Circle of Influence.)
Staying in your “circle of influence” will help you alleviate so much stress!
***Now, obviously if you’re feeling seriously stressed and anxious, you should talk to a professional for some guidance.
Here’s a quick Action Plan to help you stay inside your Circle of Influence:
Remember- you can’t pour from an empty cup!
You don’t have to do any of this alone. If you need help staying on track or building these new healthy habits, I can help you build science backed habits so you can create and extraordinary life!
