It is ultimately our thinking, more than our outer circumstances, that determines whether we live lives of harmony and peace or pain and despair. ---- Marianne Williamson
I know what some of you are thinking when you see this title. Yeah right? How do we do that? Not really sure but will tell you that there is a lot of that going on with me at the moment. Do you ever feel like this young lady. Always feeling overwhelmed. Me too. But I have decided to take action and
put a stop to this feeling.
So you ask how am I achieving this? I am getting proper sleep, at least 7 hours or so a night.
I’m creating my daily morning To Do list
One thing I am doing in conjunction is making a ongoing list, projects and future projects, and working toward one project at a time to get them accomplished. Focusing on just 15 minutes a day rule is better than “NO minutes a day”. I also find that when I start with just 15 minutes I tend to go longer.
I might include things like:
Getting rid of clutter, one room at a time, one drawer at a time
Paint a room/or several rooms
Organize my pantry
Planning to start a writing journal. I purchased one, and so plan to write at least weekly, not daily, not putting that pressure on myself, but think it will help to journal some of what is going on with me.
And who knows it might become a daily habit.
Another thing I try to do is keep a gratitude list/journal. Actually I am keeping a list born out of reading Ann Voskamp book “ One Thousand Gifts”. Usually I post my list on Monday’s when I join in with the Multitudes on Monday with others. (Off topic a bit, but wanted to share that this morning I found a wonderful journal that accompanies this book. It is now on my Christmas list, take a peek it is wonderful!)
I am also limiting myself with TV and computer time. Doing pretty good with the TV time, still working on the computer time.
A few other things that I am trying to do as well, as make some time for myself, doing something fun everyday that I enjoy and not feeling guilty about it. Also get in some physical exercise. Usually it is walking but now that the weather is turning cooler and cold, not sure what form I will take up.
Also, make time during the day, preferably the morning to spend some time in the word.
So how about you? How are you doing organizing your mind or are you?
HELPFUL TIP: One tip that has helped me is limiting the amount of negativity in my life, whether it be by family, friends, TV, newspaper, etc.
