Finding Focus in Chaos

Practice. Practice. Practice.

When we practice finding focus in any difficulty, we can and we will find the answer to our problems.

Allow yourself to take the time to pause and reflect on what you need to focus on. A simple 10 minute reflection will do. Clear your mind from all the noise and give yourself one thing to do... pause.

Practice this when your mind gets distracted!

Using Changes To Stay Present

Plans changing should be welcomed with open arms as we remember to experience the present moment. We do this because when we focus on the frustration of having to perform changes we become fixated on the expected idea of what things should be... which is no longer the truth.

This simply is a mindfulness expercise where we learn to be open to the moment that is unfolding, unpredictable, and unplanned, yet still breathtakingly an experience.

Flowing and Relaxing With Change

Having changes in our plans make us feel unstable and anxious of the outcome of "what's to become." This moment of fear creeps up on us but we can avoid panicking by learning how to relax with uncertainty.

When we learn to relax with uncertainty we become calm and composed. By doing so, we are ready to ask ourselves about the best possible solution to this change with ease.

Having a Structure

In order to create order in chaos, we can create a structure that we can rely on. It will help us to get the important commitments done on time when we need them be.

However, when having a structure, don't let yourself make it your "ol' reliable." Allow the structure to be guide you but don't let yourself get attached to it because we must allow for changes and adjustments to happen.

Navigating Uncertain Waters

When plans change during the last minute we can't help but feel a tinge of frustration, however, it is important to keep in mind that there are changes that's unavoidable.

Every change in plans is a chance to practice gratuity; to the person and to the situation. This is a chance to grow out from frustration and welcome change.

We Prefer Order And Stability

There’s a big part of us that doesn’t like chaos: we want order and simplicity.

  • When we feel overwhelmed, we might beat ourselves up and try to look for a system to get things under control.
  • When plans don’t go how we hoped they would, we feel like we’re on unsteady ground, and we start criticizing ourselves or feeling like we’re doing things wrong.

We can train to get good at dealing with times of massive change.

And here’s a secret: actually, we’re always in times of change. If you’re waiting for things to settle down, it’s a beautiful shift to let go of that and just relax into the groundlessness of it all.

  • When we have a huge mess around us, it’s hard to be focused. It’s hard to really put our best effort into our meaningful work.
  • Lack of structure creates a lack of trustability. When our lives are completely unstructured and messy, it’s hard for others to trust us.
