We all have a time in our when we have a really busy week and that busy week turns to being stressed, overwhelmed, exhausted. We are all so busy and its tremendously hard to get caught up with everything. You know the saying ” I have to much time on my plate ” well this time ” I have to much food on my plate ” and it’s time to release it because it’s to much.

1| Brain Dump

Let go of all the negative thoughts you been having during that stressful week. You can’t enter in a new week with negativity or downing yourself because you haven’t been quite happy. Let it all go!

 

2| Avoid that technology crap

You know exactly what i mean, Facebook, Online shopping, laughing at every meme that comes across your screen, taking selfies 90% of the day. The things that you really suck in & have the urge to do, because next thing you know it’s been an hour.Β 

Don’t get me wrong, sometimes this is exactly the “me time” i need and you to maybe. But, if we are doing this consistently through out the day and then stressing because we do not have enough time in our lives to accomplish everything, then we need to re-evaluate. “LITERALLY”

 

3| Take Breaks & Time for yourself

When you are feeling overwhelmed or burnt out the best things to do is just take a little rest and relax. We all need breaks from time to time. Even if your daily schedule seems never-ending. Take time to recharge because you can come back to reality all refreshed & motivated, instead of cutting your to-do list down and being exhausted.

 

4| No excuses, stop procrastinating

Procrastination will burn you out and you will start making excuses to avoid any task you had scheduled. But, usually if I can just make myself start one task at a time, I will get right back into things and feel more productive. Sometimes just forcing yourself to keep going is what all it takes. If you feel your lacking because you been working extra hard, then that;s when taking breaks come in.

 

5| Seek for help

A lot of people fear to ask others for help. Some times because of faith & pride, but it’s okay to use a helping hand. Like myself, I hate asking for help, but i came to a realization, there is people out here that are willing to help, and also might have knowledge in things i’m still trying to figure out. When you need help, ask for it.

 

6| Plan, Pin point, ScheduleΒ 

It’s so important staying on track and avoiding exhaustion. Planning out your future days, weeks, & months, are a brilliant way to stay on track. Also, helps you figure out more on what you need to accomplish and all your priorities.

Creating a long-term schedule of task to help you see an outlook of everything +timing will definitely help you out and you will feel less overwhelmed. Start breaking down your goals & times, so you will stay consistent.

 

 

So there you go! I hope these tips help you overcome any future stressful weeks and get you back on track. The biggest factor is that you need to take care of yourself and make time for self-care. Get help when you need it, relax, take small breaks, and work on time management. Incorporating these simple things should help you avoid stress.

Monday Diary + Stress relief tips

What’s up everyone! So lately i have been extremely busy, like super busy, and not only that i been super busy, I also been going through a few struggles. Can i say (CAR NOTES, UTILITY BILLS, RENT, & OTHER DEBTS) all in the same week? Yessss it was that type of month. I am so ready for April to just leave seriously! I guess we all have those days, but honestly It is bothersome. I felt i was in a dark hole, and now that i am on my way out of that dark hole, I honestly fear that time will come again, but then again I am prepared because i’m strong :).

Enough of that bullsh*t, I am not going to let it bring me down. So of course, I did a few things to relief some stress. Today i did something I have never done before. I went hiking! Yes i finally went hiking. I honestly was one of those types that refuse to go up any hill lol, but i actually did it, and guess what? I feel amazing. No i didn’t take pictures because i didn’t take my phone. That’s where i get to also announce i did a (Phone detox). I didn’t use social media, text, FaceTime, nor email, just turned my phone off and enjoyed my time not on my phone.

Also, I started a 30 day treadmill challenge in i am 4 days in so far. I basically get on the treadmill for 30 mins for 30 days straight, in so far since i started this journey i also feel good. Working out takes all the mental pain & stress away. I feel that since i am more organized with my work out schedule and not just going when i feel like it, it also helps me as well.

Another thing that i have been working on like busy is, finding a next step for my brands, including my blog site, podcast, & my services site. It has been a struggle as well but i know all my hard work will pay off. I learned that i have to stay consistent and be willing to give up my mornings & nights to work on my brands. I love my ambition, strength, & how i am not so willing to give up like i use to in the past. I am more determined and focused on achieving my goals. I don’t have a set time because building your own brand comes with a lot. You have to research, gain knowledge, brainstorm, plan, & so much more. I can’t just give up on how far I have already came.

The point of this blog is to let you all know that you aren’t alone. We all have times that we might fall down, struggle, or just feel like giving the hell up. But… if that happens then what? You will be back where you started. Their is no reason to reverse in back track. Keep pushing. Even if you feel stuck in need help, let go of that pride and find someone or some kind of resource that can help you.

We all have a mission, in ordinary to complete that mission, we have to have a winner mindset. Even when you lose a few times getting there, just keep that same winner mindset. Positivity is the #1 priority. A negative mind literally gets you no where. But… do also remember that struggles, stress, & tired nights/mornings, will come. All that hard work will eventually show off when you are some where on the other side of the world having no worries.

Heres a few extra things you can do to let go of some stress:

  • Yoga
  • Write in journal
  • Catch up on your favorite tv shows or find a new one
  • Clean up 
  • Call a close friend
  • Cook your favorite dish with a glass of wine & music up loud
  • Take a 20 min walk
  • Do something you normally don’t do because of time
  • Do a 2 day phone detox
  • Take a small trip

 

There is so many places to go, & so many things you can do to help keep your mind on a positive path. Try those list of things, or just figure out what can keep you from stressing less, or can help you feel better. Remember it’s ok to have ups&downs but don’t let that stop you from being happy. This thing called life is already hard, but as a human our mind works in mysterious ways, and we can control our minds, so it’s up to you to let yourself go.
