Happy Monday, Babes!
That means back to the work grind, this quote really stood out to me and I wanted to share it with you guys. Here is a little motivational quote to remind you of what you are doing today is the opportunity to build the tomorrow you want -even if it’s not where you want to be at right now, stay focus. Stay focus and take each day as an opportunity to work for building your dreams and goals & realize that set backs are always meant for come-backs. Take each day and moment day-by-day, remember to always live in the present and work for your future. Breathe in & breathe out, enjoy today & each day after that!
This week I am focusing on Health & Wellness. Work has been stressful and a lot lately and I’ve been noticing a lot of my anxiety building up. I would experience difficulty falling asleep at night, excessive overthinking, feeling drained & emotional this past two weeks. I just wanted to stop feeling this way because it was taking a toll on my body -I’ve decided I needed to take control & not let this overcome me. I am reminded that I am in control of my OWN body, thoughts, & how to handle my anxiety. In order to overcome my own stress & anxiety, I have to to remind yourself, I am in control of MYSELF & how you feel.
Here are four ways that are helping me to unwind & relax at night after a long day stressful day. Hopefully it can help you as well!
Insight Timer (App) : It’s a meditations app that has thousands of guided meditations, music tracks & ambient sounds to calm the mind & focus better. The guided meditations are led by some of the world’s top meditation & mindfulness experts. In the app, there are many topics that covers on Dealing With Stress & Reducing Anxiety, Self-Love & Compassion, Focus & Concentration, Better Relationships & so much more. I usually listen to it before bedtime and after doing Yoga as it helps me unwind and calms my mind. It helps with my excessive over-thinking at night & reduces my anxiety that I built up during the day.
Yoga : I’ve started to do Yoga as well before bedtime. Doing Yoga has helped me with: relaxation, pumps the heart, posture, focus, improving balance, & sleeping better. With Yoga, you don’t need much & it doesn’t have to be a costly thing. I usually just search up a quick video on Youtube on what I wanted to do that night and follow it. Health & Wellness don’t have to be a costly thing!
Let it Out: Sometime letting it out to a friend, boyfriend, girlfriend or etc all the time can be overwhelming for the other person. Writing it in a journal is a way for me to let everything out on how I am feeling & to reflect on a daily. Once I reflect on what I wrote, I remind myself to let go of the things that I cannot control.
Unplug: Unplug your phone or anything electronic one hour before bedtime. Yes, one hour before bedtime! It will help relaxes the brain & will make a big difference on your sleep.
Are you feeling overwhelmed or unmotivated? Like the whole world is weighing down on you? I know that feeling, I know how it feels to never catch a break & just run on empty. I know how it feels to go to sleep & wake up doing the same thing over & over again just to make ends meet; to do something that you are not passionate about. I am tired and am tired of feeling that way. So, I decided to take control and change the things that makes me unhappy, starting now!
You only live one life & you got to live it your best. Do not let fears or doubt stop you from pursuing what you love & is passionate about. If you fail, its okay, you get back up & do it again. Just know that you are trying. It’s better to start now than start 10 years from now or not even try it at all.
I hope this quote can encourage everyone who is reading this to always follow their hopes & dreams & never give up because of the doubts & fears. Remember the doubts & fears will only hold you back in life. I encourage you babes to read a positive quote every morning & I bet that can slowly start changing your mind set. If you start thinking about the doubts & fears, read this quote out loud at least 10x in the morning. I bet it will make a huge impact on your thinking!
I just want you babes to know that you are not alone & you are in control of your own life. You can do anything that you want if you set your mind to it.
