A big focus of conquering momma is balance. Lately, as I have been trying to focus one area the spiritual and physical have been suffering? How do people with extremely limited time keep everything in balance? There are not enough hours in the day.
What are some ways that you incorporate small changes in your life to improve your mental health?
Recently I took up working on puzzles to help calm my racing thoughts. I had tried them a few times in the past and would just get aggravated because I wanted to sit down and finish the whole puzzle. I have learned that if I put the puzzle together until I start to get frustrated then stop that I actually really enjoy it. This has had so many benefits towards having a healthier mental state. I have to have patience at the process, even when I want to finish things right now. It has also helped when I am feeling very anxious and my mind is stuck in the circular pattern it can get trapped in. I know that I can unplug for 30 minutes and everything will fade away except the puzzle, because it takes my full concentration. I am so happy to have this tool, I would love to hear what you do in your life that helps to keep your mental state healthy.
Do you know what I love about the holiday season? It is glimpses of humanity that I wish were here all year round. After the last few years people are afraid to talk to each other, get near one another, and the tension can be felt just by walking around. BUT this last month I have had beautiful interactions with strangers. Laughter between people who are parked next to one another putting groceries in their cars. A Merry Christmas from the person standing behind me in line. It is like we have a little bit of permission to reach out and touch each other’s lives once more and honestly, I could not ask for more this Christmas.
Finding holiday bliss doesn’t have to be wrapped up in the material things, it can be as simple as giving kindness to yourself or to a stranger. It might be by far one of the best gifts that anyone could receive.
What is your holiday bliss?
