6 Simple coping strategies when life is crazy!

 

Is your life crazy busy? Are you moving from one task to another and meeting the emotional needs of your family at the same time? Are you carrying the weight of the world on your shoulders? Feeling depleted? Our tendency is to keep running on empty. How do we get recharged and refocused?

When my life is crazy I have learned that there are some important things I need to do to cope.

Here are 6 little steps to health when life is crazy.

Get enough sleep. I don’t think right when I’m really tired. It’s so easy for me to listen to the lies of the enemy. The enemy wants me to feel condemned, worthless and unlovable.

If I’m short on sleep I want to eat. We’ll have a blog post about that sometime in the future.

Eat good healthy food. As much as my emotions shout for junk food, especially chocolate, I know I need fruit, vegetables and protein.

Walk outside. Sometimes my walk is more like a stomp! It clears my brain and helps me deal with stress.  The beauty of God’s creation touches my spirit.

Quiet. No radio, no TV, no background noise. It’s amazing how much silence can refresh me.

A good chat with a girlfriend! There’s nothing like a phone chat with a good friend to vent my worries and frustrations. She doesn’t try to fix it like a man does. She listens, encourages and challenges me when my thinking is way off the mark.

SPEND TIME WITH GOD! It’s the most important thing I can do! He resets my priorities. When I spend time praying, reading the Bible and good devotional books, I remember that God is on His throne. I can rest because He is in control. Not me!
