7 Things that you can control in this crazy world of ours!

Be it politics, environmental disasters or just a simple storm that drops melon size hail, I feel like the world seems out of control. Much of what is going on instills fear, vulnerability and a sense of helplessness. In times like this, it is so important to really focus on what you can control in order to maintain a sense of security and the ability to “be fabulous!”

There are seven relatively simple things that you do have control over. The trick is to become consciously aware of each of these things and make an effort to control them.

1 Your Breath. The way you control your breath is the most powerful tool you have when it comes to your state of mind. Controlling your breath is the ultimate life hack for slowing down a racing mind and allowing yourself to relax. Many of us experience stress and frustration just by simply going to the grocery store or driving to work. Being conscious of your stress should be the first step in changing the way you breathe and getting your mind to relax.

2. Your Self Talk. Be conscious of what you say inside your head. Often we berate ourselves in ways that we would never tolerate from others. When you find yourself having negative self-talk make a change, what I like to call a “plot twist.” Stop thinking about the negative and think about what you are good at and grateful for.

3. Your Gratitude. Practicing and expressing gratitude is the very best way to enhance your happiness and productivity. Gratitude is the antidote to fear and dislike. By being grateful for what you have you automatically dismiss the negativity of your mindset.

4. Your Body Language. Often times we don’t realize how much our body language is a reflection of our mindset. By becoming aware of how we stand and present ourselves is another great hack to having a positive outlook. People actually practice power posing to increase their sense of self-worth and confidence.

5. Your Mental and Physical Fitness. Being conscious of what you put in and on your body is so important. Working out and increasing your muscle tone will lead to more energy. Meditation, sleep and having a positive outlook contributes to mental fitness.

6. Your Diet. Eating too much sugar and processed food leads to many negative results. Eat better, eat more whole foods and you will be amazed how much more fabulous you will feel. In fact, many nutritionists suggest that when shopping you stick to the perimeter of the store where the fresh fruits and dairy products are usually kept.

7. Your Sleep. Go to be early. Turn off your devices. Getting a good night’s sleep is one of the healthiest things you can do for your body and mind.

By focusing on what you do have control over you will be a more fabulous individual. Confident, healthy, energized and well rested. That sounds pretty good to me in this crazy world today.
