Did somebody tell you that this world is now a pressing time? So much pressure, so many things to accomplish, so many to-do lists that fulfill in 24-hour time. Talk about 24 hours in a day, seems just a short span of time. What do you do to slow down your pace? What do you consider to bring happiness and relaxation to your being? I have been in most of these situations (of course, most of us do, and even other people have greater responsibilities on their palms). I want to share with you 3 ways to detach in a positive way to help calm our nerves.
Put aside your phones, alarm clocks, and your techie gadgets and book a trip to an island nearby.
Even for just a day or two, stop worrying about your meetings, appointments, deadlines, and business plans! Trust me, it will really help to leave those gadgets aside. Detaching yourself from your daily routines will result in an enormous change of inner thinking. Booking a trip without worrying will help you realize how far you’ve gone in your life which you just dreamt and wished of having in the past. It helps you be aware of your present success and distinguish it from anything that is superficially attached to you like social media and responsibilities which have the tendency to allow you to control things that are beyond your capacity. In turn, will eventually be a waste of energy.
Detach from the people around you and find yourself once in a while.
Surrounded by a lot of individuals these days at some point becomes distractive. You are not sure of whom to trust, whom to communicate with a deeper sense. You are unsure of whom to share humor that radiates energy and happiness. It is undeniable that friends and family make life more worthwhile, yet it is also best to be mindful of one’s self. If you are unaware of yourself, life will easily get you out of balance, and you are easily influenced by other people. So when people start to hike, you also hike even at your weakest capacity. When the closest of your friends, start to have their own business, you do so at your own risk. When your colleagues are signing up at their favorite expensive gyms, the next day, you find yourself paying registration too even if it is beyond your monthly expenses. So what if you do everything that everybody does? Do you find yourself fulfilled?
This is where my point hits entrance. I mean, these are all affirmative activities, of course, but find something that you really are passionate about, that you really want to develop and improve at. Be aware of what your passion is and especially of who you are. Everybody is unique. Anxiety kicks in if you compare yourself with others or with what others’ are doing. Detaching from people sometimes is a positive thing. We do it because we are grounded in the reality of being us and not a mask of everyone else’s.
Detach from useless emotions.
It is common nowadays for the majority of people to suffer from anxiety and fear. Maybe because society makes a great impact on how people should react to life’s uncertainties. Maybe because society teaches us the standard of living, that if we don’t live by their “standard of living”, we are not called to be successful in our own ways. Where’s that coming from? Stay away from useless anxiety and fear that comes from society and the negative people around you. Accomplish what you think is best for you and what is right for you then everything else will follow.
“Spending hours stressed out in front of the TV isn’t the same as volunteering or donating. Feeling a high level of personal distress makes people feel agitated and emotionally drained, to the pont that they lack energy or detachment to help – or the energy to manage themselves” – Gretchen Rubin
