When you’re going through stresses in life, how do you tend to approach it?
Do you face problems head on, knowing that they’re really just challenges to be overcome and that with each challenge comes a gift of learning?
Do you prefer to be like water around rocks? 🪨 💦
By that I mean, can you accept the situation for what it is, and go with the flow?
When we face stress in our lives we often find ourselves gritting our teeth, getting more stressed out, sleeping less, eating crap food and lashing out at those around us.
How often do we tear our hair out over stuff that we just can’t do anything about? 🤯
If you can’t do anything about the issue, then you still CAN take action – by allowing yourself to ease into it and do what you need to do to accept the way things are and not allow it to stress you out.
What happens when the water in a stream hits a rock?
It doesn’t come to a standstill and get stressed about it – it flows right past and finds another way.
Be like water around rocks.
If you find yourself getting stressed out and reaching for negative behaviours to feel better, then stop for a minute and be mindful about what you’re doing.
Ask yourself in that moment: what’s one thing, no matter how small, that I can do for myself to feel better right now?
Then go and do that thing.
