We care far to much about what other people think about us, say about or to us…
Time to develop a ‘fuck it’ attitude – there is a brilliant series of books available on Amazon titled that F**k It (click on the title to link you through) If you are just doing a search, make sure the search is in Amazon and not Google… I have no idea what will appear on your screen through that search! And probably don’t search on your works computer…
To stress less you need to focus your time and energy in to doing the things that make you happy. This is not a new philosophy I am bringing to you… I am all about doing what makes me happy. Yes, there are times that I need to do housework, but that gives me a clean house and clean clothes. And yes, I need to sit at a computer for a few hours, but that lets me get my message to you… These things don’t stress me out.
The other day I deleted my Facebook app off my phone. I found myself passing time scrolling through the timeline, unmotivated, getting annoyed so I deleted it. I can still access it through the online option on my phone but that doesn’t give me notifications… I don’t miss it, I check it less and I have stopped wasting so much time and I don’t feel stressed about it.
To stress less you need to stop caring about what other people think of you. If you are being a good person, not harming anyone or anything, doing the things you love, then it is really none of your business what other people think of you.
Follow your dreams, they are your dreams no one else’s meaning they don’t have an opinion.
If you are always people pleasing you are not you pleasing. If people don’t like you, who cares, there are lots who do.
If people drain you, or make you feel down or bad about yourself, stop talking to them… It doesn’t need to be a dramatic fall out, it’s just you not making a call or sending a text or arranging to meet up with them. Don’t give them space in your head.
Delete all things that have a negative impact on your day. I know it sounds simple, and it is simple. Things only get complicated when you choose to make them that way.
I hope these tips in how to have a less stressed life have helped this week.
Have a lovely weekend
