Hey I know things are probably pretty stressful right now...
You're going through some shit. You're slapped with one dilemma after another. BAM! BAM!
It's like nonstop stressors pummeling you to oblivion.
But the least you could do, despite all this shit going on, is not worry about it. The least you can do is relax.
Now, relax. What do I mean when I say that? Do I mean go lie down on the couch and take a nap? Maybe sit by the beach and listen to the ocean waves crash?
Well, I'm not opposed to any of that, certainly.
But, what I mean when I say "relax" is to enter a place of mind where you feel fully at peace. Relaxing is not something you do, rather it's something you think. It's a mental frame.
Thing is,the outside world can be brutal and chaotic, but the inner world can be tranquil and serene while all that's going on.
To relax is to feel calm, regardless of the outer turmoil.
Now I get it. You're probably thinking "okay how the hell do I just go and relax dude? Shit's pretty crazy right now."
Well, let's go back to that beach. I want you to imagine the warm sand in between your toes. Hear the waves lightly crash on the shore. Feel the rays of the sun gently caress your body. I want you to be in that moment. Imagine it. I want to feel it.
Breathe deeply. Be at the shore.
Focus on the feeling of being there. Not what's worrying you, not what you have to do. Just be at the beach, in your head.
Focus on what it feels like to be fully and completely relaxed.
See, if you want to be able to relax among the chaos, you must familiarize yourself with what it actually feels like to be at that point of calm and peace.
Knowing that feeling, really becoming close friends with it, will allow you to bring that feeling to mind "on cue."
The more you do things (or otherwise imagine yourself doing things) that are relaxing, and the more you focus on that internal feeling, the more you will be able to relax when faced with any sort of stress.
