There will always be stages in your life where committing to your regular daily routine feels like a chore. You find it impossible to do things at the time you set simply because you don’t feel like it. You don’t have the motivation nor the willpower to get out of your comfort zone and conquer the day. Just like any other human being, this is totally a normal feeling. But remember that the longer you’re in that anxious or undisciplined state of mind, the harder it is for you to get back on track. When you feel like you’re going to the deep end, you need to throw the rope and pull yourself together. Carefully laid-out strategies will help you form habits and stick with them until they turn into your instincts.
Being anxious prevents us from thinking clearly and making rational decisions efficiently. It steals away our opportunity for growth and every chance we have at peace of mind. Moreover, it creates imaginary problems out of the wheel of negativity running in our heads the entire day. Being in this state of mind causes stress physically and mentally, and most times, we are in this position because we don’t know how to avoid instances like this, or we don’t know how to get out of this uneasy situation.
In your twenties, you get anxious about possibly everything. You want things to go smoothly, exactly according to the way we want (but you know it won’t happen, and even if it will, it wouldn’t last very long). Your expectations in your life and the world you live in contribute a huge factor as to why you’re always pressuring yourself to be everything to everybody. You want to make a difference in the lives of those around you, but you also want to be the best in your field no matter what it takes (and the harsh irony here is: you can’t have the best of both worlds).
