Chaos vs Order


Life is full of challenges.  Whether it is a job that is toxic, or a heartbreak, or a challenging financial situation (to name only three!!), there are significant challenges in life.  So what do you do when you are there and life has been launched into chaos?  Your own exposure to stress can have a significant impact on your relationships and your abilities temporarily so how do you cope so that your home is once again peaceful and your cortisol doesn't spike every time the phone rings or your email dings?

I have been given some advice recently that resonates:  

First of all:  Breathe.  That is all you really have to do to stay alive in the moment is breathe.  Ground yourself, look around and realize where you are and that the monsters in your head and life are not there at that moment and try to live there (in the breath) for as long as you can and as often as you can.

Secondly: go outside.  I know it's hard.  It's so much better to fight monsters from your bed and when you are curled up in a chair in your safe house.  But go outside and ground yourself in nature.

I know that monsters and chaos can arise in life and this can affect everything;  your own peace, the connection you have with your children, your home education program, the household chores being done,  and then there is the crippling guilt because your lack of ability is making it hard for your children!  I promise it will get better.  Just breathe.  And go outside.

Much love from Golda
