What’s worst then having anxiety? I’ve talked about it a few times on the blog about how many anxiety can get the best of me. But how does it happen? Where does it all come from?
Sure there is a lot of clutter physically around me. My office is a mess ( hence why I usually get that door shut at all times ha ) I usually can be pretty organized but at times I’ll throw things around, put magazines in piles, forget to organize those papers that seem to just get bigger and bigger and then it all leads to one big thing..a huge blow out and stress!
Which then leads to me being cranky, yelling and in an awful mood. No one..and I mean no one wants to see me in a bad mood! I take it all out on someone in the way and it’s just not good for anyone. Ugh or how about my closet? Thank goodness I was able to get that decluttered and organized and let me tell you how amazing it feels to just find all my shoes in one spot instead of in a huge pile!
But what about the clutter somewhere else? What about the clutter that’s in our head? All those negative thoughts that keep swirling inside of us. How can we get rid of it? What about all the social media that comes into play? Here are a few tips to get ride of all that clutter
1. Make A List – Whenever I start to become anxious, there is always something that always helps me out. I make a list. And a detailed one at that. Lists help me write down what I need to get done and boy does it feel great crossing things off.
2. Make Time – I always say I never have time to get things done and work around the clutter. Why not take even 10-15 minutes to put magazines away, file your contracts or even just clear out your inbox ( although mine takes a bit longer ha! soo many e-mails! )
3. Worry Less– This is always easier said then done but don’t sweat the small stuff! But truly worrying about everything just makes your mind less clear. Your fears are always going to be there but know that you can DO it and be confident will help to keep you feeling your best and get rid of those negative thoughts.
4. Don’t Compare – I’d be lying if I said I never looked at my Instagram and became super jealous of my fellow bloggers who received an amazing PR package, a weekend getaway at some incredible destination, someone who reached 60,000 followers….the list goes on and on. It’s so hard not to compare or attempt to be ‘competing’ with others but truthfully- someone out there is doing that with your account as well! We forget that people are coming to our page for inspiration, goal setting or just to learn more about YOU. There’s a reason they love YOUR blog so keep being there and being YOU!
