Julia Roberts. Staying grounded

Life tends to get pretty overwhelming at times to say the least.

The world definitely isn’t getting any less crazy, and sometimes it feels hard to stay calm amidst all the chaos that surrounds us on a daily basis.

While we can’t really shut ourselves off from reality, there are ways to stay grounded in this often crazy world.

4 Ways you Can Stay Grounded in a Crazy World

Practice Meditation

We’ve all heard how good meditation is for us, and it is surely good at helping to keep us grounded.

When we practice meditation regularly, it becomes almost difficult to let the crazy things out of our control have an adverse effect on us.

Finding the time to dedicate to regular meditation doesn’t even have to get in the way out of your regular schedule, and even if you’re crazy busy, taking five minutes out of your day to meditate will definitely help keep you grounded no matter what is going on around you.

Try getting up ten minutes earlier each day and spend it meditating.

If you’re new to meditation and not sure exactly what to do, there are thousands of guided meditations you can find online that will help you get you started.

When you get in touch with a regular practice, you will find the things that once seemed so crazy just aren’t as so anymore.

Do Yoga

Yoga, ever beneficial for mind, body, and soul, is one of the best things you can do to keep yourself grounded in the crazy world that surrounds you.

Yoga helps us balance our energy and puts us in touch with our personal power and an unshakable mind.

In a world that sometimes makes us feel a little uneasy, yoga offers an escape, that when practiced regularly can help us transcend a sometimes senseless reality.

Finding the time to practice even only a few times a week will help you harness the energy, strength, balance, poise, and confidence you need to help get you through whatever life brings your way.

Focus on Your Breath

When was the last time you took a minute to focus on your breath?

You could even try it right now, and you’ll notice that it brings a bit of a different energy to the way you feel.

Focusing on the breath helps to calm the mind and brings harmony to the entire system.

When we’re hit with crazy chaotic situations focusing on our breath is one of the most beneficial things we can do to bring us back to a calm, centered state.

You don’t even have to wait until the next time you’re hit with something tumultuous to try it.

Learning to focus on the breath throughout the day, every day, will help prepare you for those times it really does seem to get a little too out of control to handle.

Find Some Time for Yourself

If you’re like most people, your life is surrounded by a bunch of different people each and every day.

Not many of us have the luxury of working from home, where we don’t have to be subjected to the (sometimes negative) energy of other people.

It is so important to find time for yourself if you are even going to think about staying grounded amidst the many people you may encounter each day.

If we’re constantly surrounded by others and always on the go, it makes it a little difficult to remain grounded and feel centered.

Spending time alone is actually very beneficial to your state of mind.

When we’re alone, we can reconnect with who we really are when not subjected to the pressures of the outside world.

Finding a hobby you’re interested in, or simply curling up with a good book offer excellent ways to escape the crazy of the outside world.

Time with yourself will clear up some of the chaos and help keep your mind clear the next time you’re hit with chaos.
