From Organised Chaos To Calm

From Organised Chaos To Calm

Do you ever feel like your life is organised chaos? In fact, some of you might go as far as to say your life is very much unorganised chaos, and we can totally relate to that. When you have so many thoughts going through your mind, all of the time, and so many things that you have to do in a day, it can often feel like you are so not organised in life. You might not realise it, but this is actually going to lead to long term stress, and mental health is becoming too common to ignore that. Because stress is the leading cause of anxiety related mental health problems, as well as depression. So the aim of this post is going to be to try and turn your life completely away from anything chaos related, and into the calm. We’ve got a couple of tips that should help to strip some of that chaos away from you, and move into a more calm period in your life. Sound like what you’re looking for?

Declutter Your Home

So this is something that pretty much all of us are good at putting off, for a very long time. When you have your own family, or when you’ve owned your own home for a good couple of years, the amount of clutter can really build up. Not only that, the renovation work that you might want to do, might only add to the clutter.. So if you feel like it’s getting to the point where this needs to happen, you’re first going to have to think about bin hire. It’s going to save you so much time getting a bin hired for your home, and you’ll soon be able to get things done. So have a real good clear out, and look at anything you don’t like or don’t use anymore. You might be able to donate some of it! Once you dedicate a few hours to this, you’ll be surprised at how much space frees up.

Keep Your Days On Track

Sometimes it’s so hard to keep your days on track, especially if you’re always filling it with one thing after the other. Sometimes it’s hard to stick to it when you don’t write it down, so as silly as it might sound, a daily to-do list can help you to keep your days on track. If you do everything in order and quickly, you might find you free up more of your evenings and weekends!

Calm Your Thoughts

So we spoke about mental health in the beginning, and we know how prominent it is at the minute. So one thing we’d recommend is yoga. It’s a great way to process the thoughts in your mind, and help you to empty your head. The more stressful thoughts you’re having, the more negative you’re going to feel. But taking that time to truly relax through yoga can really help that. There are simple guides that will get you going online.

Rest to Feel Better

By Tia Cristy

Rest to Feel Better

It seems like we, as humans, need to be moving 190mph at all times or we might just miss an opportunity nowadays. But even the fastest of performance vehicles that were built to go that fast need to stop at some point. Anxiety is a something we all have encountered at one point or another. We feel this over many things, but the sure-shot way to feel anxious is if you feel like you should be doing something when you’re not. In today’s society most movers and shakers can’t even remember what it means to take time to rest.

What it Means to Rest

Resting isn’t closing your eyes and sleeping the day away. Although, we may need that for a day if we are sick or something. However, you must remember too much sleep can make you more tired and more anxious. The case of resting that we are discussing here, is taking your fast-internal momentum down a notch. It’s giving a break to the crazy daily demands we put on ourselves. Resting doesn’t mean being inactive.

Things to Do When Resting

Sometimes engulfing your senses into a long film can bring on a great rest. But it’s not always the best case if it’s a high-thrilling action movie unless that’s your thing. Science has shown, people burn a good number of calories watching exercise videos because the brain believes it is taking part in the activity. It’s the same concept watching a movie. Watching a movie that makes you use your brain to guess the plot can be a great source because our brains are a constant that have a need to be in use at all times.

Another resting activity could be playing games. Board games with the family or playing online games like BoomTownBingo have a way of relaxing our bodies, yet continue to provide that needed brain food. Steer away from the escaping hours on social media. Science has discovered using only social media as a resting outlet does not feed the brain and can cause adverse reactions of increasing anxiety.

Reading is an ultimate way to rest. Reading causes you to use the brain in the most efficient ways whether you are holding a physical paper or reading from a device. A good book can force you to use your imagination while your body stays in a constant resting pose. Reading articles or non-fiction causes the brain to learn and retain new information. Transforming your brain into another universe of words for even just six minutes a day has the ability to reduce stress and anxiety by two-thirds according to the latest research.

Why Do We Need Rest?

It’s more important, now than ever, to take rest in our daily lives. When we take time to rest, we feel better physically, mentally and emotionally. Resting results in less accidents on the road or in the work place. People are quicker to problem-solve. People that take time to rest are less likely to suffer from depression. Well-rested people a less aggressive and agitated. People have a higher immune system to fight-off germs when they partake in a routine of resting.

With that said, take a rest. Be happy, feel productive and have an overall better outlook in life.
