Adulting the holiday season is never easy for the average guy, and it is important that you pay special attention to your peace of mind despite the hustle and bustle of the season.
Typically it is the best time of year but we know for many it also brings with it a lot of pressure and unrealistic expectations that many of us are not equipped to deal with emotionally.
If you are a spiritual man then this post is for you! On hard days ask God to grant you strength and clarity of mind and to help you feel at ease in your life.
Pray for peace of mind
Yes, it is true, that we cannot control people, plots or plans and in some cases our very own circumstances. Therefore, declare your trust in God and ask Him to step in and take the reigns over the trivial and heavy matters that might come your way. If you are feeling stressed out, pray for peace of mind daily until you actually feel at peace.
Stop worrying about trivial things
Sometimes things in life are running smoothly and then there are times that you cannot seem to find a balance and you begin to stumble and constantly worry about things some of which you might not have control over.
The crazy thing is, most things that we worry and dread over never happen anyway and we make up scenarios in our head that cause more stress than value.
Talk to someone
If you are like me then typically you try to shoulder your problem all on your own. You might feel weak or vulnerable even when that really isn’t the case at all. Some burdens we do have to shoulder alone but there are also some burdens that others can help us navigate especially during the holidays.
Focus on what’s important
Focus on what matters to you, if it doesn’t feed your heart and soul you might have to hold off on certain things until you are able to re-evaluate or redefine what is most important to you.
Once you figure that out, place your energy into the things that matter the most.
