Troubled by the world’s current state of affairs? You’re not alone. Your life can be turned upside down, with everyone and everything in chaos.
Anxiety usually causes you to experience an increased level of stress. Negative thoughts consume your mind, making it difficult for you to feel any sense of happiness. Sacrificing the well-being of yourself and others is not a healthy choice to make.
Fixing the chaos in your life takes priority over everything else, especially when you find yourself struggling with personal and life challenges.
When we neglect our own 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 for revealing truths about your beliefs, sense of freedom and desires 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 so many different meanings, so it is really up the individual, to me it’s being frazzled in a time when you have so much going on or a state of confusion when unexpected situations arise.
It describes how you may feel overwhelmed by the responsibility and expectations from your own thoughts that there is no relief as soon as one expectation is fulfilled, another responsibility pops up and starts echoing those same messages.
It has both mentally and physically debilitating effects (chronic fatigue diseases, headaches) that change your personality, transform into someone who would rather avoid social situations (not just with children), overeating because of the extreme stress, a sense of hopelessness that there will never be relief.
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 important in order to get a better understanding of yourself and will help you get grounded again so you can deal with your chaos.
Discovering 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 out patterns in your chaos, such as why often times 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.

There are many things that may contribute to unhappiness and not being fulfilled in life, but here’s a list of some ideas.
Changing any one of these things would be an amazing 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 worry 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 you can make your life more enjoyable or what will bring you happiness?
When you start asking questions about happiness, its important 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 all along, within yourself.
If we don’t look at how happy we are in life as an ongoing process instead of only periodic events (moments), then when things get tough they seem unbearable because we are not prepared for them. That’s when the chaos starts to creep in, and we can’t find a way out.
Quick ways of fixing the chaos
The first step is identifying what needs to be organized or fixed, then prioritizing it so you can work 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 in a structured way 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 to manage the 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 to think 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, which puts 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 kind of chaos overnight, but they will happen if you keep practicing 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. In order to make changes in your life, you have to first acknowledge the chaos.
Realising that you are important and making the decision to put yourself first and foremost is essential 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 one second. And when everything seems out of reach, go outside and be happy about being there at that moment in time.
Simplify your life to make it easier. Get the basics, believe in yourself and gather strength, willpower, confidence, positivity so that you can move forward with life
Feel the power you have within to do anything you want.
