A simple way to let go of stress is to let go of trying to figure life out. It’s about realizing that you don’t have to control every single aspect of your life. You don’t have to try and manipulate life to get what you want.
It’s much easier to let go of what you want, and connect with your heart. I know this post is a bit different from my usual writings, but I’m feeling inspired to share this.
The reason most people are stressed, anxious, and afraid, is because they take life too seriously. Yes, there are things in life that seem bad, like losing your job, a loved one, or your health taking a nose dive. But does stressing about it really help? If you look at some of the health reports, you’ll notice that stress makes it all worse.
Life will always change, so even if you’ve got the perfect life right now, it will change. The more you cling to what you have, and the more attached you are, the more you will suffer when it finally changes. The key for me has been to learn to flow with life, and learn to accept the changes as they come.
As I let go of control, and trying to figure things out, I let go of stress.
Try it for just today and see what happens. It has definitely helped change my life. And something has helped me let go of control is meditation. I don’t try and quiet my mind. I just sit and notice my breathing, or become aware of what goes on in my mind.
Use whatever works for you, and enjoy!
