Go for a walk, hug a tree, gaze at the stars, sit on the beach, listen to the birds; immerse yourself in the wonder of it all. Let your worries fade away and find peace.
Your body tells you what it needs - when it is hungry and for what, when it needs to rest, when it needs to move. You just have to tune in.
At the same time, you need to tune out your mind. It will tell you it is hungry because you are stressed, it will tell you to eat that donut because it conjures up happy times, it will tell you to quit running or working out because it doesn't want you to expend energy needlessly.
Which one will you listen to?
Life would be boring without a few friends and a little craziness.
Don't forget to tell your friends how grateful you are for them.
Don't forget to breathe.
Slowly inhale well being... pause.. and even more slowly exhale stress. Repeat.
If you have the courage to take the journey of introspection, of questioning and possibly abandoning all of your long held beliefs, of putting aside your old story and being open to a new one, you will be rewarded with freedom.
Be careful with your words, you can't take them back and they can play in someone's head for years to come.
Comparing leaves you feeling like you are better than or not as good as someone else - either way you lose.
