Many of us are overwhelmed.
We’ve got a business to run, or a job to do, or children to bring up… or all three.
So that means we’re doing 30 hours of work in 24. We’re talking to one person while another is on hold. We’re replying to emails, Facebooks and WhatsApps… and still there’s more to do.
All that keeps our minds busy. We’re zoomed in on our tasks. We’re planning our next move (or what’s for dinner).
Our minds are running hot because they’re processing so much information.
Or they overheat… and we burn out.
That’s why, for me, it was essential to find calm in the chaos.
It became important to step away and escape the turmoil.
Now… meditation wasn’t going to cut it (at least at the beginning). There was no way that I was going to spend 20 minutes doing nothing. That was too big an ask.
But I discovered the Feel Better Project process was like a mini-meditation, a 5-second break from the mind.
A holiday from the chaos.
And it’s why I am sure to scan myself throughout the day and ask:
- How am I feeling right now?
- What does this feeling mean… what’s going on?
- What can I do to feel just a little bit better?
That quick check-in allowed me to zoom out and get perspective.
It permitted me to organize and prioritize.
I could see what’s real and what’s mind-heat-panic.
And I felt better.
All it needs is a little bit of calm in the chaos.
