How to see through the Chaos

So the phone is ringing, the kids are screaming at each other, the clothes need putting away, pay the bills and what am I going to cook for dinner.... sound like anyone's day so far???

Amongst all of this chaos there is still beauty if you learn to see through it. Far to often we become immersed in the chaos that life can throw at us rather than the beauty that it has within it each and every day. We allow the little things to become big things, the big stress we already have then becomes mountains which we have no idea how to move pass or over. This becomes a cycle that seems to never end leaving us depleted of energy, frustrated and for some depressed.

So how do we see past all of this, we will still have to cook dinner, pay bills, clean house, care for our children and even hold down a full time job. We cannot just throw our hands in the air and say enough and walk away, we need to learn how to see the beauty again. We need to learn to de-stress in this chaotic world.

Listed below are my top tips to move past chaos and stress
  •  Get up and move. Walk, dance, or exercise; allow you heart rate to increase and get oxygen pumping around the body.
  • See the beauty in something small, a child's smile, a song, a flower, etc.
  •  Be around great friends, laugh with them, cry with them, lean on them.
  • Help someone else, take your mind of you and help another.
  • Meditate, learn the art of meditation and deep breathing, you cannot panic while deep breathing!
  • Eat healthy, eating the  foods that nourish your body, these foods don’t make you feel guilty afterwards.
  • Learn to say no, set boundaries, sometimes the best thing we do in life is to say no.
  • Take time for yourself, be positive in your thoughts, soak in a bath, or get a massage.
  •  Clean the house get organises, clutter creates stale energy, clear it out.
  •  Get an attitude of gratitude, be thankful for all that you have, be thankful for your life.
  • Smell the rose get out in fresh air, get out in the garden fresh air helps to clear the mind.

In the chaos of life remember to see beauty in just the smallest of things

  1. It is so refreshing to read your day. I lived your lifestyle, and miss it sometimes. Know there comes a time when you have more time for yourself and the decision what to do with it is yours (completely).

    Enjoy every chaotic moment. You will cherish them in years to come.

    Blessings to you and all you do,
