Feeling challenged? Here’s what you can do

 

Sometimes Life’s challenges flow thicker and faster than we feel we have the capacity to handle. Here are some simple  practices I follow to get through. 

  • I acknowledge that it’s more than I feel capable of handling and compassionately accept my reality.
  • I release the need to resolve the matter (or matters) all at once. It will take the time it takes. 
  • Gratitude practice – I ponder all the things I can be deeply grateful for: a roof, clothing, food, running water.
  • I linger in moments of great beauty around me until feelings of anger, injustice or anxiety dissipate.
  • Cultivating contentment by reflecting on what is good – friends, health, successful and happy times past, how little I need to be content, access to Nature, the blessing of a Life that forges resilience.
  • I allow myself to be happy, despite the issues , even if it’s only for a few minutes.
  • I remind myself that I am in control of my response to Life.
  • Visualising things I’d like to enjoy in my life changes my chemistry and perception of what is possible.
  • Doing something that soothes me (beach walk, bath, read a book, mat practice).
  • Call upon a friend, or actively distract myself in pleasurable or therapeutic activity (cleaning! decluttering!) until I can return with a more able attitude.

Warmly,
