I challenge myself to be calm

I challenge myself to be calm in order to release daily pressures

Managing my frustrations is the best way for me to reduce daily pressures. Sometimes I become upset because I feel like my daily pressures have become overwhelming. When I realize that I am becoming angry or depressed, I take actions to soothe myself.

I challenge myself to stay calm because I know that I can handle problems best when I approach them with a rational mind. A calm mind thinks clearly. Because I am a rational person, I can solve any problem that comes my way.

Whether it is the increased responsibilities at work, feeling like I don’t have time to accomplish all of my tasks, or feeling overwhelmed by family commitments – I stay calm. I may feel the urge to become frustrated or angry, but I realize that those actions will only intensify my anxiety and project negativity into the world.

Thinking of myself as a ship captain helps me remember that I can get though rough waters. When a storm approaches, I know that it will not last. Even in rough waters, a good captain can keep the ship on course.

Keeping a cool head and focusing on my goals are the best ways to get through daily pressures. I know that soon I will reach calm waters and the storm will be behind me.

Challenging myself to remain calm in the face of mounting pressures is a challenge I accept. I am a brave ship captain on a clear course. I know the rough waters are only temporary. Choosing to stay calm releases my daily pressures.

Self-Reflection Questions:

1.    Do I allow daily pressures to upset me?
2.    How can I release daily pressures from my life?
3.    Do I accept the challenge to remain calm in the face of mounting pressures?

A little preparation takes me a long way in easing strain and stress

Being prepared makes living my life easier. I am so glad that I have discovered ways to effectively manage my everyday life.

Choosing to proactively prepare for the day is such a simple way for me to remove stress from my life.  Just a little preparation can make such a big difference in my attitudes and perspectives.

Every morning, I take a few moments to review my commitments for the day.  I also jot down a list of things I need to accomplish so I can stay focused on my goals.  Knowing my deadlines and prioritizing my tasks is an effective way to ease the strain in my life.

When I have an important deadline approaching, I enlist the help of others.  I also make schedules and set aside time to work on the project.  Making clear plans and feeling like I am in control is a great way to ease anxiety.  Since I take actions to keep my projects on schedule, I am confident that I can reach my goals.  Preparing for success ensures that I succeed.

The stress I once had in my life is gone because I have taken proactive steps toward organizing my life.  Anxiety can be prevented.  I am so relieved to have found systems that help me manage my life.

I am ready for any project and each task I approach seems more manageable.  Preparation is a useful tool that I implement in my life.  I am ready to succeed because I am prepared.

Self-Reflection Questions:


1. How do I prepare for the tasks and projects in my life?
2. How does preparation ease my stress and strain?
3. How could I take a more proactive approach to reach my goals?
