How To Relax And Take It Easy Even With A Busy Day - #LifestyleFriday

Take a moment to analyze your body. As you’re reading this, do your shoulders feel tight? Do you clench your jaw waiting for the next thing to do after you finish it? Is your MS giving you a hard time when you are stressed? Are you getting intrigued where am I going with this? Read on. It’s worth it. I promise!

How you begin your morning sets up the tone for the entire day. If you wake up late and are in a constant rush as not to be late for work or to a certain appointment, you are going to continue feeling tense and stressed as you go along with your schedule.
Imagine easing into your day by having a relaxing, slow start. Imagine taking time to have breakfast and coffee while you check your to-do list and plan for the day ahead. There’s no reason to rush, as things happen with or without you being present.
Don’t stress about getting a certain task done ASP (even if you have a tight dealine). Just focus on one task at a time, and on doing it right. Find your breath and relax all those tight spots on your body. They bring even more stress along.
Do what your body and day allow you to do, as long as you align your actions with your written schedule. After a while, it will become second nature. It is true what they say, worrying never solved a problem, but worrying too much gave birth to headache, palpitations and anxiety.
Get up 30 minutes or an hour earlier. Take time in doing your morning routine. If you are on MS treatment, relax into it and breathe. Drink your coffee or tea. Dress up and plan your day ahead. Focus on the tasks at hand and prioritize.
You have it in you to make this day the best day yet. Let go of what other people might say or think about you. I know it’s hard. We constantly rely on other people’s opinions to have feedback for our actions. But we all live a different life and define our own reality.
What might seem worthless, stupid or a mistake for you, for others it may seem normal and even worthy of appreciation. Don’t be so hard on yourself. You are what you are and cannot change that in a split second or in 24 hours. It takes time, effort and actions taken to achieve a goal.
So, relax, take it easy!
