Stressed out at work?
Feel like you are constantly putting out fires left and right?
Wish there was a way to be productive AND have more peace and calm while you're working?
Believe it or not, you are 100% responsible (and in control of) how you feel at work.
When you're stressed out, it's easy to blame your coworkers, customers or managers for how you feel, but how you feel actually is up to you, regardless of how crazypants dramatic or annoying they get.
Watch the above video to learn 3 ways to relax while at work that can be done while working -- no meditation break needed!
RELAX!! RELAX ALREADY! 🙂
Ever encounter someone just so stressed out at work that they look like an angry high-speed hamster, running from task to task furiously, as if that hamster wheel is really going to get them somewhere faster if they put the pedal to the metal?
Seeing them struggle with over-analyzing the simplest tasks is exhausting, right? How the they load up everything with unnecessary excuses, emotion and explosions...
Yeah. That someone is YOU right now.
Use your imagination for a minute or two as you read this.
Imagine that you could clone yourself, where the Clone You can observe the Regular You -- same intellect, age and everything, except the Clone You has no responsibilities and is independently wealthy (like an abundant bystander). Now, step into the Clone's point of view, and watch yourself. Really stand back and observe Regular You stressing at work.
Don't you just want to shake yourself and say "RELAX! Calm down! You're fine!" when you're on the outside looking in?
Granted, we are not all independently wealthy and responsibility-free, but the point of that visualization is to activate the part of your energy that is Free and Open, always.
It's this part of your intellect that kicks in when there is an emergency at home (someone's water broke or the house is on fire, for example) and you magically are able to detach from all the drama and drudgery at work and leap into action.
And it is this mindset, a creative and responsive mindset, you will need to embrace the simple techniques in this week's Love Letter.
Because, you can't relax at work if you don't admit that 1) you're stressed out, and 2) something needs to be done about it in the moment.
You see, the danger in being stressed out at work -- or, occupational stress, as it is officially called -- is that we both ignore it as par for the course, and accept it as if there's nothing we can do.
In spiritual truth, however, you are 100% in control of how you feel at any given moment. The same way that there's a part of your intellect (Clone You) that knows you should detach and relax, there's also the capability within you to control how you feel while at work, regardless of what's going on around you.
It comes down to a choice: will you focus on Your Health or focus on Your Job?
Now, I'm not saying you should quit your job because it stresses you out. If that's where your head went, then LOL you missed the point! 🙂
The point is this: where your awareness goes, energy flows.
So if you focus on meeting that deadline, people-pleasing, and other externally-driven things at work, then the energy will go to increasing the intensity of deadlines, people-pleasing activities and everything else.
Know this: The key that unlocks peace at work is self-awareness; not being self-conscious. Know yourself, and respond accordingly. #love #selfcare
You see, when you know yourself, you can respond to a triggering (or stress-inducing) situation strategically, because you know what you need to feel safe, centered and clear.
Yet, if you are self-conscious instead of self-aware, you will leap to please others without regard to your needs and values, as they are less important than whoever or whatever you are comparing yourself to -- comparison is the basis of negative self-consciousness, by the way.
Once you are clear on who and what triggers your stress response, then it's easier for you to regularly employ stress-reduction techniques. It's all about your mindset.
You are the only one who is really in charge of how you feel, so act like you know this, and take charge!
Most people are unconscious and unaware of this at work, so occupational stress runs their life, dictating the quality of day they have, rather than it being the other way around
Watch this week's video for the Oracle Card of the Week, which shows you how to activate your creative mind to de-stress at work!
In Love and Light,
Just for Today...
Try the "Clone You" visualization described in the above article, and really observe if you are responding with self-awareness to your stressors, or reacting because you are self-conscious.
Notice how you feel at that moment - you're already healing!
SHARE THIS! You’d be surprised how many people you know right now are in desperate need of healing and could use this information to change their life. If you can read this, you know someone who needs this Love Letter!
