When we have a plan, we give ourselves time in that moment to concentrate on something that lifts our mood.
A plan doesn’t have to be anything big, or life changing, but it’s a focus. A focus that will help us change the way we think, so that we can move on with our life. A plan helps us challenge our conscious to think about something that will change the way we feel in that particular moment.
When we struggle it’s always difficult to think let alone have a plan, but having a plan will help with our struggles too. It’s a small but significant step towards changing something. Unfortunately, when we don’t have a plan, not only will we become stressed, but we will never have the opportunity to change our life in that moment.
So the next time you’re stressing out, stand back and think about what you can do to change things. Sometimes it’s just one thing that helps us move on and away from stress.
