The reason why I’ve been buzzing so much about the Maldives recently is that I desperately need the blue sparks to douse the burning chaos deep in my mind. Stress is part of our adulthood and no one can live in a stress-free life, even those people who you think might have all what you ever want in your life. They might have more stress than you, you never know. We all have our own issues, ups and downs, that’s how important learning to keep your work-life “BALANCE” is. My recent training is how to keep the balance before either the work part or the life part gets out of the control and the negative vibes start flowing around. I guess some of you like me have reached the point that you don’t want to talk anymore, about anything, to anyone, but then you keep forcing yourself to act like a “normal adult” that keep your smile up on your face and being sociable all the time. That’s totally how I feel recently. In this situation, however, I’m ignoring my inner voice and taking my body apart from my soul, which makes me feel even worse, more stressed, anxious and depressed. There are some methods I would like to share with you for keeping balance and eliminating the negatives.
2/ FIND OUT – We’re all emotional just because we’re human beings. However, there should be some main reasons that cause your intensive stress and depression. Find out the root and figure out the solution. Ignorance would only make you worse.
3/ SPEAK OUT – Talk to your friends, the ones you feel conformable to talk to about your issues. The magic of speaking out is not only getting some suggestions and advices from others, but also simply helping you to release stress.
4/ GET INSPIRED – So you’re getting stuck somewhere and you need to find a way out. In order to change your behaviour you need to change your mind, and the only way to change your mind is to get new inspirations. What I do for getting inspired? Books, TED talks, music, movies, art shows, or jumping into an airplane flying somewhere new.
6/ DO EXERCISE – We all know doing more exercises is healthier for us both physically and psychologically. I’m not going to list lots of scientist proved articles about the benefits of doing exercises here, but when we’re getting stuck in the negatives we lost the motivation to train ourselves, and in a vicious circle – we getting more mentally weak. In this case, it’s not the positive vibes to keep us training, but finding motivation through it. Hiking is what I strongly recommend; you don’t need to push yourself too hard to do training that you don’t really want when you have mental illness, but go on a hike instead, the green nature can purify your body and mind.
7/ CALL COCO – You don’t have to pretend to be a rational adult all the time. Calling the little BUNNY COCO out of your soul when you’re getting lost and spending some time with her/him, then you will find out who you really are and what you really want out of life.
