Is Your Life Chaotic: How To Find Peace and Balance
Many people in our society lead chaotic lives. Is it work/life balance? The inability to manage stress and emotions? Lack of peace within yourself? Turbulent relationships? Procrastination? Unruly kids? Lack of time management? Lack of happiness and joy? Too many things on your plate?
These questions are something to ask yourself if you find your life spiraling out of control.
Life should not be a chaotic situation because we only have one life, which is meant for enjoyment and productivity. The problem is, we accept the craziness of everyday life without realizing how detrimental it is to our overall health.
The sooner we can understand how valuable a healthy and balanced life is, the sooner we can appreciate it too.
Why and How Do We Allow Our Loves To Become So Chaotic?
There are many reasons that cause chaos in our lives…
• Lack of discipline for your children
• Bad communication with others
• Acceptance of the things in life that cause us grief
Now some stress may be a good thing because we never grow unless we are pushed to new limits but when it causes health problems, it’s gone too far.
Lynne Gilberg, a professional organizer in West Los Angeles, California says, “Clutter is bad for your physical and mental health.” This makes sense because you’re stressed, your immune system is not as strong, you can’t focus and there are many other problems you create when you allow chaos to occur with no structure.
Find Peace and Balance In Your Life
Stop procrastinating and get your life together! … How can you do this?
We tend to associate difficult and boring things as not important, especially if we’re unsure whether something will benefit us right here and now.
To stop procrastinating:
• Get rid of distractions (for the moment)
• Associate progress to well-being (This becomes a habit)
• Make a daily schedule and plan your day so you can be productive
These little tips can certainly help you to refrain from procrastinating.
Discipline in the household is extremely important for creating a peaceful and less chaotic life.
This is because when there is no discipline in a home, the children feel entitled to do as they please (Free rein) and things can get out of control quite easily.
So, do make sure there is structure in the home you should implement:
• Punishment in the form of an action related to the bad behavior
• Communication rather than physical punishment
Children will learn to behave if there is an effective punishment structure put in place. Timeouts and a lack of privileges go a long way. Physical punishments like spanking (Or any other form). The American Academy of Pediatrics advises against this type of punishment as it causes more anger in a child and can lead to bigger problems as they get older.
Stress can result in bad relationships and this is because of bad (or a lack of) communication because when you’re stressed out, everyone around you feels it too. In fact, people that are stressed may intentionally neglect the needs of others.
Final Thoughts: Put A Stop To The Chaos
Knowing that your life is chaotic is good because you now realize that you need to do something to change that.
Dealing with a chaotic life is not worth it and you should never compromise your health for something that can literally “Kill” you! Find out what is causing you the most grief and make it a priority to destroy it at the root so that you can find the peace and balance that you deserve.
