Calm is a super power.
Calm is having the absence of strong emotions.
Super refers to an extraordinary ability.
Power is the capacity and size of your influence.
Calmness is a mental state to strive for. An inner place that lessens the grip of anxiety, worry, excitement, and troubles.
You want to be able to know calm and to use it. Not each moment of the day. But to have access to this place within that helps you in so many ways.
Think of being calm as your shield. A piece of protection, an invisible shield that protects your energy from the toxicity of either other people’s negativity or when your life is spinning much too fast.
As the world becomes faster – we need to slow down.
Adulting is hard work and quite often.
Regardless of our good intentions, positive vibes, lifehacks, and excessive ingested fuel for slaying our days – we need a break.
There are peaks and valleys – good days and bad days – moods that arrive for no apparent reason.
There can be too much on your mind. Which often does lead to overwhelm.
And then we get off balance – emotions swirling that lead to poor lifestyle choices.
What’s going on?
There is too much need.
Too much involvement, comparison, and grasping.
People rarely switch off anymore. Thinking and now assuming that you must be plugged in.
People everywhere are so focused on texting or have their nose to their device. I can’t believe the amount of people I see daily who have to text while they are walking.
And the sounds of cities. Many of us walk through phenomenal levels of noise pollution each day of our urban life.
How can you relax?
How can you develop equilibrium?
Most people just don’t feel a sense of peace, of calm, or serenity throughout their day.
Where is the calm?
To be calm is different than to be relaxed.
How can you even hear yourself think?
Life has become fast and rather impersonal. There was a time when it was not.
You don’t need to race around each day.
Where is the living in the moment and appreciating life as it is happening?
And there is too much overthinking going on also.
When was the last time you let yourself relax and recharge?
Alone and without people.
Begin to introduce some calm into your life. Start your day with a calm morning ritual. A time to chill and be happy. Later, you can work your way into high gear and rev up.
