We’ve all been there at this moment where the overwhelm is so intense that we can not plane think or act. I’m talking well-nigh the moment where you just can’t. You are ‘done.’ You finger stuck, sad, and frustrated. You would scream, but if you only had the strength!
I know, I’ve been there too. I remember clearly, me laying lanugo on the floor staring at the untried walls of this suite I used to hate, crying in silence, feeling hopeless while wishing I could see the light at the end of the tunnel. But “where is the tunnel again?”.
It is not a good place to be at all. But at the same time, it is perfect as it is. Have you noticed what happens without a major breakdown? When we decide to unravel out of it, there is a breakthrough. And I love breakthroughs. They help us move on in life, usually increasingly mindfully and increasingly meaningfully. Breakthroughs help us see vastitude our limitations and encourage us to pass through barriers that sometimes we don’t plane realize were there in the first place. Breakthroughs are insightful and liberating. But how do we get there, from a breakdown? The wordplay is right lanugo below.
1. Waif everything you are doing
To stop and waif whatever you are doing is probably the most crucial step to take since a dispersal usually comes without a series of non-stop, forced actions. We try so nonflexible and go so deep without taking the necessary rest that eventually, we reach a point where we can not pension going anymore, or it’s just too painful to continue. So, what you must do right now is simply stop and breathe. Indulge yourself some time to recenter and unbend time for the pursuit steps.
2. Scream, shout, let it out
When was the last time you let it all out? How many emotions have you been bottling up? It is now time to let the feelings come to you, unquestionably finger them, and then let them go. If you haven’t cried in a while, indulge the tears to fall. If there is a scream drastic to come out, scream. Remember: you are human, and feeling feels is as normal as zoetic air. So, finger whatever you need to finger and then let it go. You deserve this time to process your emotions, and it is essential for your mental health that you do so.
3. Part-way yourself
After all the release from step 2, you will need a tool to help you part-way yourself and realign your energy. My go-to, in this case, is meditation. It can be as simple as sitting lanugo in silence with your when straight, vision closed, and zoetic in and out slowly. Focus on your zoetic and indulge any thoughts to go as they come, without attaching to them. This simple meditation will help you wilt increasingly present and prevent the usual screw of thoughts that comes with a breakdown.
4. Re-evaluate the situation
If you got through the previous steps, I’m pretty sure you can think increasingly unmistakably now, and you must finger a lot better. If you don’t, don’t worry. Know that this process takes time, depending on the person and the situation. So maybe requite yourself increasingly time and
whenever you are ready, start the re-evaluation.
The re-evaluation process is when you sit lanugo with your thoughts, a pen, paper, and objectively re-evaluate what took you to unravel down. Here, you will elaborate on what happened, what part you played on it, and what you’ve learned from the situation. You must write everything down, so you can squint at what happened “from the outside” and read it whenever you want to.
A transilience can happen anywhere between steps one and four, but what is a transilience without some whoopee to follow up? That is why it’s essential to create an whoopee plan.
5. Create an whoopee plan for the future
Now that you have been through all the steps, it is time to take wholesomeness of the insights you got and act on them. To do so, I encourage you to read the pursuit questions one by one and requite yourself a couple of minutes to think well-nigh the answers.
What is it that you uncovered in this process? What would you like to do differently? What new deportment are you putting in place to prevent this from happening again? What is the goal now that you have all this information? What do you need to do today to unzip this goal? What can get in the way of what you want to achieve? How will you stay on track?
By answering these questions, you have all the information you need to diamond your whoopee plan.
Remember: having a dispersal can be an opportunity to recenter, re-evaluate and repurpose our lives. All we have to do is create the space for that to happen, and that would include a pressing pause in our rented lives and some inner work followed by intentional action. Plane though it is simple, I realize how difficult this may sound right now, but I promise it is worth it. And if you are worried well-nigh productivity, wait until you get when to business. You will be amazed!
I would moreover like to say, take your time. This process can be made in one go, or you may need weeks to process everything. The secret here is to not gravity or rush it and let it happen.
Give yourself the opportunity, the time, and the space to make it happen.
