How are you doing this day?
I pray you are alright and are taking the time to lift yourself, one day at a time and every day.
As you may notice, I talk about ways to heal the hurt and repeat my posts differently. What I mean is I talk about creating stress relief habits by developing inner peace and quieting the mind a lot but in different ways.
There are three reasons I do this.
First, you will find peace in quieting the mind because it is one of the most potent ways to connect to God.
"Be still and know that I am God." ~Psalm 46:10, Old Testament, Holy Bible, KJV
Second, if I write about it differently, I can and will eventually persuade the stressed person to destress. One way or another, I may convince the suffering individual to choose and use their free agency and power to find relief through focus.
Third, remembering, reminding, and repetition are great ways to recondition stressful habits into destressing habits.
Here I go...
A great way to Destress Yourself is to intentionally enjoy the moment you are in.
We often think of all the things we must do, what may happen tomorrow, or what happened yesterday. If we can intentionally take the time to enjoy the moment we are in, we will discover a great way to relieve stress.
When people are young, it is so easy to have fun and play, but then life sets in, and adults teach us and train us to take life too seriously. Sometimes we are trained out of enjoyment because it is replaced with fear.
So, sometimes we must retrain ourselves in happiness and joy. Sound familiar? If so, try this...
When eating chocolate or a delicious meal, notice every bite, focus on the moment, and enjoy.
When conversing with someone you love or like, notice the time you spend together and enjoy.
This is intentional living.
This is choosing to stop the thoughts of other things and focus on savoring the moments.
One of my favorite things is focusing on the moment I am in. I quiet my mind and focus on the person I am with and where I am. I just quiet my mind and savor the person and place. I find complete enjoyment at that moment. I feel God at that moment.
This is one of my quieting the mind and finding inner peace practices.
Sounds simple, and it is absolutely amazingly fantastic!
Give it a try!
Put savoring into practice, and you can Destress Yourself anytime and anywhere.
Remember, the practice creates permanence.
Have a great day, my dear friend!
Don't forget to have fun!
Choose to be playful!
Short and sweet!
Straight to the meat!
I did it!
Love! Love! Love!
All I got is love for you!
