Why so serious?
Aside from clinical depression and anxiety, running around life can cause a myriad of stresses, from money, work, family, love, health… shit, even which cat food brand to buy can be stressful!
Unfortunately, stress is a big manifestation killer. So, how do we minimize stress and maximize enjoyment?
Lately I’ve been wondering about this myself, because my schedule has consisted of working from home, working at my side hustle, sleep, and repeat. It’s starting to affect my mood, and when that happens, I’m pretty sharp at taking notice.
So, recently I’ve been trying to figure out what I can do to inject some happiness when I’m feeling stuck. Like, when I’m working away and feeling uninspired, I think, “How can I feel better right now?”
And usually it’s putting on some Ke$ha and taking a dance break.
If I’m stuck in my side hustle and can’t seem to shake the frustration and anger, I list the things that make me happy in my head. If it’s real bad, I run to the bathroom and tap or meditate for a few minutes until I can get back to baseline. Or, I even tell a joke to a coworker, even if I’m not feeling it, just to see their reaction.
These small practices bring The Sun into my life and help it to shine a little brighter. It helps me to have a little fun and not take life so seriously. Taking everything so damn seriously will drive you crazy! And there’s always a way to let brightness in through the clouds that you deem so important.
Use the Four of Wands to remind you to celebrate! You’ve got a beating heart and a brain in your head, so use them to make life the party that it is! You might feel beaten down, run over, and overwhelmed, but honey, it just DOESN’T HAVE TO BE THAT WAY.
So, what makes you happy? When do you feel your most fulfilled? And how can you lighten the mood? Get thinking and stay witchy ( *)
