Give yourself a break

Still your mind.
Change your perception, belief or opinion about your circumstances.
Doing so will help you change your attitude and ultimately allow you to grow beyond the struggles you can’t control.
In order to gain conscious control of what goes on in your mind, you need to develop a keen awareness for this process.
What helps is to hold still for a moment,
take a deep breath and free your mind of all the chatter that’s going on inside and all around. This makes room for a change of state, for something new to enter.
So give yourself a break.
Yes, you have battles out in the world to fight, insecurities to overcome, loved ones to contend with and goals to achieve, but a break from it all is necessary.
It’s perfectly healthy to pause and let the world spin without you for a while.
If you don’t, you will burn yourself out. You must refill your bucket on a regular basis.
That means catching your breath, finding quiet solitude,
focusing your attention inward, and otherwise making time for recovery from the chaos of your routine.
