15 Minutes to a Stress-Free Introvert
Introverts spend their entire life being told something is wrong with them. And that’s a load of crap.Sometimes unfortunately, we live in a world full of extroverts. They have a lot of advantages. They can walk right up to somebody and strike up a conversation. They can smooth-talk and sweet-talk their way into a situation. Sure, it comes with its challenges, but they’re not the group of people who are being constantly told they need to change. As if life wasn’t stressful enough, the stress of someone else’s disapproval or rejection can send some introverts over the edge. Stress sucks. And for introverts, stress is even harder to deal with. Stress is common for everybody. But, when stress and anxiety begin to rule your life, that’s when you know you have a problem. You’ve got to be at four places at once because the kids all have to go somewhere. But it’s 10:30am and your boss has had it with you leaving early. Your spouse makes a smart alec response while you’re elbows deep in paperwork and bills. The car just started making a funny noise and now you’ve got to try to come up with the money to fix it. You can’t slow down because then, everybody will know how bad you really are at keeping it all together. You’re torturing yourself because if you give yourself even just a little slack, chances are it’ll all fall apart. Your spouse will know that you can’t take the pressure. The kids will be disappointed because you couldn’t take them to their friends house. (Seriously, why do people who have no ability to drive themselves anywhere ALWAYS have somewhere they’re going!?) Guess what – it’s time to take a breather.
“Yeah, right. Like I have time for that.”No, seriously. I get it. You’re already rolling your eyes. How in the crap are you supposed to take a few minutes for yourself when everybody always needs something? (The kids are probably asking you to take them somewhere else right now, aren’t they?) Here’s the deal though. It doesn’t have to be hard. If you add this one thing to your to-do list, it’ll make the other things on your list feel like they’re falling into place. Seriously. I’ve created this handy-dandy video to explain the need for taking this breather and how it can help not only keep you sane, but can actually help you get a lot more done.
You’ve got to make it a priority
All the information in the video won’t do you any good if you don’t put it into practice. A lot of people are really successful making this time for a couple days, then life happens and they forget.
Put a reminder on your phone. Set an alarm. Tell Alexa to remind you. Whatever it takes, making the time to make yourself a priority only helps you to be better for everyone else.
