Has life become an almost constant barrage of tasks list and mental overwhelm for you lately? It’s happening to more and more people – men and women of every age. A busy life isn’t what it used to be.
In days gone by, that used to mean you worked full time and maybe had some events on the weekend. But now, life is coming at you 24/7. We’re connected with technology non step, being inundated with horrific news and the task list that used to be cluttered, but manageable, has gotten out of control and you feel defeated.
If you can make yourself – your emotional health – a priority in life, you’ll feel much better and capable of handling everything you need to. Blogging is one way to focus on giving yourself some peace of mind and tranquility.
As a blogger, you’ll have a digital journal available to you at any time. It can take the beating you dish out – the emotional cry for help, the burst of uncontrolled anger, the worry that has seeped deep into your soul.
And what’s better is that the blog gives you something in return for your words. It lends you the gift of peace. You will feel better unburdening your mind by lashing out on the blog rather than with a kneejerk reaction to one of your loved ones.
You won’t just be exploding with emotions, either. The blog keeps a record of your behavior and thoughts and allows you to experience growth. You’ll get to read back and see how you’ve changed, or where you need to change in order to fulfill your life goals.
Make it a consistent process that you engage in whenever you need a break from your busy life. So instead of blogging first thing in the morning or at the end of the day when all your work is done, save the blog for when you desperately need a break from it all.
In those moments, when you’re filled to the brim with emotional clutter and a task list a mile long, stop what you’re doing and put a voice to the feelings. Write it down in your blog post – exactly what’s happening, who’s affecting you, what your reaction is, and how you plan to finish out your day.
Stopping in mid-chaos is like taking a breather from the commotion and getting a few moments alone with yourself to think straight and look at things more clearly. You’ll be able to hit the publish button and return to your life of chaos with a renewed sense of ability and fortitude.
