How to Be At Ease with Life

Are your experiences nurturing you or creating angst?

Do you find yourself constantly battling with the stuff that happens to you?

Are you always on edge because you're wondering what the future has in store?

Life has its challenges, but it's not meant to be difficult. Here's my guide to being at ease with life...

* Accept that life has its ups and downs, no matter how hard you try to avoid the downs. Stuff happens! Stuff will always happen. You might not like it, but it 'is as it is'. Just accept and, in doing so, be at ease.

* Enjoy living in the present moment. Stop dwelling on the past and don't worry about the future. Now is what really matters. You'll find a deep-rooted contentment here. The Now allows you to just be and embrace your true happiness.

* Stop being a controller. When you try to control everything that happens in your life, you hang on so tightly that it causes stress, tension, and dis-ease. Change what you can change and release what you can't. Simple!

* Set yourself life goals that are manageable and attainable within the given frame of time. Why create stress for yourself when you can achieve your goals with some slight adjustment.

* Always live your truth. Be you! Don't try to be someone else or live up to someone else's expectations. Doing so just causes more dis-ease. Honor the unique, amazing being that you are.

* Enjoy the journey. Many put so much effort into reaching the destination or achieving an end result when it's the journey that really matters. Be at ease where you are right now and see the beauty and perfection in this moment.

Life is easy when you accept that it is.

Have an amazing day!

"Life is a series of natural and spontaneous changes. Don't resist them - that only creates sorrow. Let reality be reality. Let things flow naturally forward in whatever way they like." -Lao Tzu
