We all love it when a plan comes together. Unfortunately, more times than not, we undermine our own success by diverting our focus away from the here and now to contemplate the effects of our past, or the what if’s of an uncertain future.
According to Kate Kusterbeck of the EarthMind Wellness Center at Honor’s Haven Resort & Spa, “Living our lives apart from the present can trigger a self defeating and destructive cycle. Yet, no matter how out of control we feel, we all have the power to reground ourselves through mindfulness.”
Here are Kate’s top four steps to achieving less stress and more success:
1. Stop Worrying About the Future and Focus on the Present
Become more aware of your thinking and learn to bring yourself back into the present so you can enjoy the here and now.
2. Learn to Breathe
Learn to breathe deeply. Pulling air through your diaphragm so your belly expands helps to keep the mind calm and grounded while improving focus and reducing stress.
3. Do One Thing at a Time, Slowly and Deliberately
Multi-tasking divides our attention, hindering our ability to act and react in a methodical and deliberate manner. Slow down and focus on one task at a time.
4. Do Less
Slowing down your pace allows you to focus on the task at hand with a greater amount of concentration.
It’s important to remember that we all have the means to achieve our goals; both on a personal and professional level.
