Most often when the day ends, we tend to regret for not utilising our time efficiently.
Breakdowns happen on the rarest of times on the strangest of things. Its true that we tend to slip off the grid. It makes us feel that everything is futile. Ennui befalls everyone. But what we push away is our own hidden resources that can help us to overcome.
I have been there so many times, and I know that smile on your face is enough of an evidence for me to know that you have been there, or are there too.
I remember getting frustrated on small and futile topics at work. For instance – wifi not working, coffee machine going out of work, burning my toast and what not. Well! not to miss a fellow colleague being mean, and creating a fuss in my head for hours. Frustration can never be enough, enough to summarize in one line. It needs a chips of potato chips and an hour long conversation.
I must say that our wonderful brains have the capacity to catastrophize an ant size problem to a supersize elephant. But instead of encircling the problem, we encircle the entire world around. It just needs a glass full of water turning down the thirst and bringing calm.
Or just opening the window and letting go of things that are not serving away in the air.
Moving further, don’t fixate on the downward spiral or a problem which you can not control. You don’t want to mop your own puke, so puke in the right place and flush it off.
Venting is not a problem, but make it a healthy venting.
Take time vent to someone with whom you feel connected. And once you share, move ahead of the frustration,
Engage in something creative, a hobby or learn something new.
Well! nothing beats preparing a meal that takes you away to another world.
