I think I am currently very good at stressing myself, for no particular reason. But I don’t sleep that good anymore and just need to calm down a bit so I decided to set myself a few rules for the next days and see if they (hopefully) work out.
Rules for a less stressful life
1. Don’t think so much (overthinking)
How I want to change that: Whenever I feel like I am thinking too much about a thing or situation I am going to read a book or do something creative.
2. Less Instagram-browsing
I don’t think I do it crazy much, but I also think it would be good to spend a bit less time on that platform. That’s why I am setting myself these little rules for my Instagram-time: I can only open the app twice a day and not right after I wake up.
3. No phone right before I go to bed
Instead: Reading. I think there is nothing better for me than reading a book. I don’t think that anything else really calms me down and makes my brain sleepy, if that makes sense. So I am going to do that and try to stop using my phone an hour before I go to bed.
I think you shouldn’t set yourself too many crazy goals at ones, so these are the three ones I want to start working on. I would love to hear if you have any tipps on calming yourself down and just live a bit less stressful.
