Those moments of chaos may include a broken piece of cooking/serving ware like mine, a child who won’t be consoled, the phone ringing off the hook, preparation for a big event, a pet or child throwing up or making messes all over, a stressful situation at work, or not seeing eye to eye with a husband, family member, or friend. Sometimes it may be all of the above!
How on earth can we keep our sanity in a world that is constantly in motion? How can we calm the chaos?
There are many tips and tricks for reducing our load, releasing stress, and inviting peace into our lives, even in the midst of the chaos.
Here are a few of my favorites:
Turn on Pandora to a station with calming instrumental music.
Take a warm bath with some calming bubble bath or essential oils.
Use a softly scented lotion or essential oils for emotional aromatherapy.
Sit back, close your eyes, and take slow, calming breaths.
Breathe in four seconds, hold for 7 seconds, breathe out for 8 seconds.
Cast all your cares on the Lord for He cares for you.
Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayers and petition, let your requests be made known to God.
On peace: And the peace of God which surpasses all comprehension will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.
On letting go of anxiety: Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.
Now may the Lord of peace himself give you peace at all times and in every way. The Lord be with all of you.
You are what you eat! Be sure to eat enough organic meat and veggies! Make sure to get enough healthy fats. Cut out the junk food, and drink LOTS of water!
Did you know our brains are made of fats and won’t work well if we don’t have the proper fats and nutrients? Supplement with proper zinc, calcium/magnesium, B complex, essential fatty acids, and Multivitamins made from real food. My favorite supplements
Go to bed early, even if things still need to be done. Take care of yourself first!
Some things just aren’t important! Don’t worry, things will work out in the end.
Hugs & Prayers for your day,
