Feeling like being the middle of a storm right now and not sure what to do?
Check out my 5 tips to help you navigate out of the storm.
I usually wish for that perfect, sunny day. Most of us do. We don’t like the bad weather, the dark clouds, lightning and thunder.
It’s like that in life, too. I am always hoping for that perfect weather. We don’t want to be sick. We don’t want to have difficulties at work. We would like for everything to be just perfect.
As I think about my career, my life and my experiences, I can honestly say that I’ve grown more in the difficult times. When a storm is raging in my life, I am forced to a new place. I have to change tactics, learn a new skill, and do something differently.
When you’re in the middle of a storm, it feels like it will never end. You may not know which way to turn or what to do.
Just like the passing rain we experienced in Cork this week, the storm will pass. And when it does, you may find that you have a new clarity. You may find that the storm renewed you in ways you couldn’t have imagined. You may find that character is developed in challenging times.
5 tips to help you get through the storm:
1. Stay grounded practicing meditation or yoga so you don’t emotionally react to the situation
The goal with meditation is to train your attention and awareness so you can achieve a state of mental clarity and be in an emotionally calm and stable. We think the most common misconception about meditation is that it can only be done one way, and we bet you are visualising someone sitting on their yoga mats in complete stillness. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Meditation can be many things, so don't beat yourself up if you use an app or can only meditate for 5-10 minutes without distraction, meditation can be a part of life in every way.⠀⠀⠀
