We are often too serious about us and our life that we can’t relax. Our days are overwhelming, sometimes you want to scream! Life is so chaotic and ironic…. and loud, that might be a struggle to take a moment to relax and clear your mind.
We have little time for relaxation and self-reflection. But we need it! to feel better and to be more productive. Luckily, there are several ways you can try to help you release any stress or tension in your daily life and chill out.
Rememeber life is ridiculous, so ridiculous that make me smile :)
Think about the funny fact that it is customary for businessmen to tie a piece of cloth around their necks every day for no apparent reason, or that every suit they wear has a row of pointless buttons on the cuff. Isn’t it funny? Sometimes we should stop and laugh at every day absurdities, to just feel better about ourselfs. Or think about this story:
“My grandfather always said, ‘Don’t watch your money; watch your health.’ So one day while I was watching my health, someone stole my money. It was my grandfather.” I love this.. and irony of life ;)
You think if you are rich you would be happier?
Nothing more wrong. Studies show that lottery winners, heiresses, and the 100 richest people are only slightly more satisfied than the average guy working in a office. Still, more money won’t put a permanent smile on our faces. There are more important things for you to be happy, like for example relationships.
Relationships are all that matter
If we valued our happiness over money we would do everything we could to spend time with friends and family and not worry so much about putting in extra time at work. When you look back on your life, you won’t reflect on the time you spent at work; you will remember family dinners, amazing hoidays, romantic time, funny adventures and maybe your wedding or your kidds. First family and friends, then your career.
Some of us even end up stressed out in situations where it is completely inappropriate. For example, you might find yourself visiting a new city like New York or Rome and end up confused by the public transport. You can’t find out how to get where you want to go and it makes you angry. But what are you accomplishing by stressing yourself out? Nothing. Take a step back and laugh at yourself.
Go with the flow and end up where you end up.
Sometimes getting lost in a city will lead to a way better adventure than going to some stuffy museum anyway.
Rememebr – Your time is limited
If worrying is unproductive and money doesn’t make us happy, why do we waste so much time on those things? You only get to live one life. One third of our time you won’t even be awake for, so you better do your best to make so many as possible precious and reminding moments that matter. Do what you need to do to live a happy and fulfilled life, and forget what anyone else tells you.
Life is just a bowl of cherries! Keep going.
Your problems are not so big as you think
The universe is larger than you can imagine. It is filled with burning balls of gas, galaxies and solar systems beyond counting, and thousands of other civilizations fighting their own wars and facing their own challenges. In a very real sense, you are insignificant. What better reason could there be not to take your life to seriously?
The only thing that really matters is enjoying your life as much as you can and helping other people do the same. Try it upside down.
