Finding Calm In The Chaos

We all have crazy lives, and we rarely find time to breathe. Our lives get ahead of us, and our thoughts race. I don’t think our lives will ever really not be busy, but we can find calm in the chaos. tumblr_lrdq6dwwvi1qz4d4bo1_400

1. Breathe

Breathing is what keeps us alive, yet it is what we least think about. Proper breathing can slow down your mind and help you to not get overwhelmed. I do this in any stressful situation I am in. Breathe in from your nose for four seconds, hold for seven seconds, and release. Feel the weight lift off your shoulders. Repeat this as many times as you deem necessary.

2. Music

Music is one of those things that can help you in whatever mood you’re in. No matter where you are; a busy train station, work, at home…music is there. The bands ‘The Head and The Heart’ and ‘The XX’ are my favorite calming artists. Breathe slowly and let the music take your worries and thoughts away.

3. Move your body in nature

Run. Walk. Stretch. Dance. Bike. Moving your body clears your head, and in a stuffy gym, it’s not as effective. So go out in the sexy Earth and move your body, you will be glad you did.

4. Meditate

Even if it’s just for five minutes, sitting down, breathing, and letting your mind wander in whatever way it pleases is an instant way to silence yourself. Think about your intensions moving forward so that you can continue your day stronger and happier.

Until next time,

Claire
