7 Toxic Sources of Chaos You need to Eliminate from Your Life
You need it, don’t you?
Having peace and control in your life, that is.
You wish there were not ups and downs, no sudden crises in your life.
You wish you didn’t have to experience lack, emergencies, and chaos.
Yes, you understand that no life is free from trouble. You understand that no one can predict all problems and stop them before they happen. Some situations are plain out of your control.
But if there was a way to shrink the amount of chaos in your life, you would want to know it, right?
You can proactively weed out the chaotic sources in your life and start experiencing a much needed peace. Check out these chaos triggers and see if you can eliminate some of them from your life.
1. You are too generous
When you are constantly saying yes to friends, family or your boss, chances are you’ll have no time for yourself. If you are always eager to help those around you, you are at risk of finding yourself with neither time to do what you need nor time to do what you signed up for. You’ll feel the pressure that comes with too many obligations. Stress and chaos will slip in when you overcommit yourself and are too generous. It’s okay to say no.
2. You have spectacular goals
You need to have goals in life. But if your goals are unattainable, you’ll soon feel overwhelmed, discouraged and stressed. And when you are stressed your life is only one step away from being out of control.
For example, if you never exercise and you suddenly decide to sign up for a marathon two months from now you just created unnecessary stress in your life. You’ll try to cram too much exercise in a very short time and won’t be able to get fit enough for the challenge. A few weeks into it you’ll start to feel pressure and stress; and you’ll quit. Keep your goals challenging but within reach to avoid stress.
3. You are surrounded by a hazardous environment
Are you living or working in a cluttered place? If your home or your workspace are a constant mess, you’ll feel out of control.
Do you have piles of unopened mail around your kitchen? When your mail is not organized your mind will start to wonder if inside one of those envelopes is an unpaid bill racking up interest as you sleep.
