When was the last time you really switched yourself off from the outside world? Everybody’s experiencing a significant amount of pressure in their everyday lives. Even prior to the pandemic, a simple job interview resulted in so much pressure but now we are in a world of learning how to relax when there is so much injustice and upheaval in the world. It is not easy. But we are going to try and help you with three simple tactics.
Ignorance Is Bliss
It’s not a very popular thing to say in a woke world, but there is a lot to be said for minimizing your exposure to external sources. We have to remember there are times when we feel fatigued in a mental and emotional sense. The very simple solution of a duvet day can help us to get back in touch with ourselves while also blocking out the outside world. This means going for simple things, like box sets and a TV show that you can truly absorb yourself in. But even if you need to go through resources like Kodi to get your television fix, this detailed tutorial on how to install a VPN on a Firestick can help you get started. Television is a savior in the modern-day. And when we are so consumed by bleak or stressful thoughts, ignorance can be bliss! The next time you’re feeling incredibly pressured by everything and it’s all too much, close the curtains and put a TV show on!
Look at the Science of Relaxation
There have been various studies conducted on meditation and how it lowers blood pressure and reduces anxiety. The science shows that being out in nature is a great stress reliever. There are also studies that have been conducted on people like Wim Hof that have managed to control their autonomic nervous system. When you feel you are unable to calm down in a stressful world, you have got to go for the tangible results. There are fantastic guides out there to get you started. But even if you don’t like the idea of meditation, there are methods that have been proven by science that can calm you down, such as coloring, or even reading!
Getting Lost in Your Childhood
We don’t want to live in the past and think that everything was much better back then because we naturally do this as humans anyway. But if you can think back to what you were like as a child, identify what you did that made life pleasurable, and find the adult version, this will help you discover a thread in your life that you can pick back upon. It could be something as simple as looking at an old photograph of yourself and remember that you played in the sand. What is the adult version of this? It could be something like taking up pottery or making something with your hands. Using your childhood isn’t an exercise in nostalgia when you are trying to be happier, but it’s about remembering why you were happy back then and translating it to the present day.
