Are you troubled by the world’s current state of affairs? Fixing chaos in your life is more important than looking at the outside world’s chaos. We are all in the same boat with the outside world, so we can only focus on ourselves.
Anxiety usually causes you to experience an increased level of stress. Negative thoughts consume your mind, making it difficult to feel any sense of happiness. Sacrificing the well-being of yourself and others is not a healthy choice to make.
Fixing chaos in your life takes priority over everything else, especially when you find yourself struggling with personal and life challenges.
When we neglect our well-being first, it can be tough to function like a healthy, happy individual.
Only by taking care of oneself first will it translate into better quality relationships and increased levels of purpose.
Now is the time to reveal truths about your beliefs, sense of freedom, and desire to expand.
As the universe is helping us, now is better than ever to work on our chaos.
What exactly does chaos mean?
Chaos has many different meanings, so it is really up to the individual. To me, it’s being frazzled in a time when you have so much going on. It is also a state of confusion when unexpected situations arise.
It describes how you may feel overwhelmed by the responsibility and expectations. You feel no relief as soon as one expectation is fulfilled. As quickly as something is done, three other things pop up and start echoing those same messages.
That’s why you need to know how to deal with chaos before it has any chance at manifesting itself into your life through unhealthy coping methods such as drinking too much alcohol, overeating or substance abuse.
How to identify your chaos
Self-work is vital in order to get a better understanding of yourself. It will help you get grounded and help with dealing with any chaos.
Look at what is in your life that you no longer need and the things you want to make yourself happier and have a fulfilled life.
You might find patterns in your chaos, such as why often things get chaotic, when it usually happens and how you can deal with it more.
A great way to organise ideas is by writing them in a journal or notebook so you can go back and add more.
Start your new Personal Journey by looking at the list below to work out things that resonate with you to work out the chaos you need to deal with.
Many things may contribute to unhappiness and not being fulfilled in life, but here’s a list of some reasons.
- Free Time
- Connecting with nature
- Passion and Excitement
- Living with dignity
- Permission to be yourself in what you say or do
- Meaningful relationships
- Good health
- Being comfortable in you body
- Different body type
- Pride in appearance
- In touch with spirituality
- Having some hobbies
Changing any of these things would be a significant first step for a healthier and happier you.
Put yourself first and do what makes you happy. Follow your passions by trying new things, not constantly worrying about the future, avoid common triggers that topple your emotions.
Reduce chaos by determining what makes you happy.
Do you spend a lot of time wondering how to make your life more enjoyable or what will bring you happiness?
When you start asking questions about happiness, it’s essential to take a step back and notice what might be missing in your life.
You might find that the answers are just waiting for you within yourself.
Suppose we don’t look at how happy we are in life as an ongoing process instead of only periodic events (moments). It seems unbearable when things get tough because we aren’t prepared for them. That’s when the chaos starts to creep in, and we can’t find a way out.
Quick ways of fixing chaos
The first step to fixing chaos is identifying what needs changing and improved, then prioritising that list and working on your most important tasks first.
Once you have identified the issue, create an action plan by writing down how to manage/lessen or eliminate your chaos. Simplifying your life, making goals and taking steps to achieve them structured will lead to less chaos.
- Use a daily/weekly task list. Much easier to focus on getting them done efficiently.
- Scheduling blocks of time for certain dates, you can plan out what type of general work activities will take place and when they have to occur.
- Make the most of your time and do things that reflect what you value.
- Keep your schedule under control as it is essential to living a balanced life.
- Keep your workspace and home space clean, clear and organized.
- Practice activities that calm the mind such as journaling or meditating regularly.
- Shift your focus to who and how you want to be instead of all that you have to do or the content in your life.
- You have to be present and know what you are doing (direction you’re going-forward).
- Say “no” more!
- Make time for you and YOU come first before anything.
These strategies will help you manage any chaos rather than let it consume you!
You’re the only one who can change things.
You don’t need your parents, your spouse, your boss, or anyone else, only you!
It is a false belief that changing others can make you happy or improve your life. Other people might contribute to your happiness, but only you can change yourself.
You can make different choices to improve your life.
Putting yourself at the bottom of your priority list typically leads to abandoning the things that matter, putting you and those around you in a chaotic situation.
It’s your responsibility to take time for yourself and bring back the true you.
“LET GO OF YOUR FEARS AND SURRENDER TO WHAT LIFE HAS TO OFFER.”
Chaos can build-up for years and sneak up on you without realising how much there is in your life. It’s not good for your well-being if you resist change, so it’s time to make some necessary adjustments.
You can’t fix any chaos overnight, but it will happen if you keep practising and avoid giving up.
Don't ever compare yourself to others as a lot of people are living different lives than what we see as you can't see behind closed door.
It’s pointless to worry about things that can’t be changed, and happy, healthy thoughts will carry you when the going gets tough.
Don’t be ashamed of the reality in which you find yourself. To make changes in your life, you must first acknowledge the chaos. Then fixing chaos will be a lot easier.
Realising that you are essential and deciding to put yourself first and foremost is vital in life.
Start by caring for, appreciating, and loving yourself. When you’re feeling down, find a way to pick yourself up, even if it’s just for five minutes. Go outside into nature. Just be happy about being there in that present time.
Simplify your life to make it easier. Get the basics, believe in yourself, and gather strength, willpower, confidence, and positivity to move forward with life.
Feel the power you have within to do anything you want.
