I have a simple yet exciting topic I’d like to share with you! As you can see from the above, the topic is Practice the Pause. Let me explain what I mean by this.
Read on… 🙂
Today, our negative emotions are one our greatest downfalls. It’s so unfortunate that we live in a world where many of us allow our negative emotions to ‘run’ us.
We are always quick to say anything that is on our mind without thinking it through. Every day, we make many impulsive decisions without thinking about the consequences of our actions. Some of us insult and/ or disagree with our loved ones on the slightest things. Worst of all, we sometimes think we are ‘always’ right in any/ many situation(s).
Nobody is immune to this type of attitude. We all are guilty of this at one point or another in our lives.
This is why I am here to tell you how you can overcome all of this by learning how to practice the pause.
When in doubt, pause.
Are you convinced your significant other is being unfaithful? Are you confused whether or not you should accept a job offer? Or Are you doubtful whether you are doing ‘the’ right thing? You NEED to pause. Just give yourself some time to think, recollect your thoughts, get your mind right, and you will be fine.
When angry, pause.
There is nothing bad or negative about being angry when somebody has offended you. It’s a normal human way of reacting to unpleasant situations. But do not allow your anger to control your thinking process. If you are angry while sitting, try to stand up. If you are angry while standing up, try to sit down. If you don’t feel like standing up or sitting down, change your environment so that you won’t do something that you will regret later. Just pause. You will be happy that you made this decision.
When tired, pause.
Anytime you realize you are tired, no need to answer any phone calls or check your e-mails. You should also avoid any long conversation or activities that will make you ‘more’ tired. Just pause… and you will see the awesome results.
When worried, pause
Ive come to the realization, that most of our worries and fears do not even come to fruition. Anytime something is bothering you, don’t make any rashion decisions. Instead, write down all your worries on a piece of paper and just pause. That way, your brain will have more time to understand your worries and help you make the right decision.
And when you pause, just breathe.
Not only do you need to pause when you are angry, tired, worried, or doubtful, but you also need to breathe deeply. Doing so will help you reduce your blood pressure, control your heart rate, supply oxygen to your brain, and relax all those tensed muscles in your body. It is very easy to do. Regardless of where you are, just take about ten deep breaths and make sure you are breathing with your belly so that you can get quick results.
I hope you enjoyed and found value from this. If so, feel free to drop a comment and share it with your friends and family!
