Life is busy and unpredictable. Things can drastically change in the blink of an eye. This can make us feel like we have little to no control. Not exactly a fun feeling. No need to worry, because you are in the right place. Here are 3 tips and tricks that can help you feel more in control of your life. 

Making Decisions

Do you ever put off making important decisions in hopes they will magically solve themselves? Do you ever obsess over the small stuff for hours on end?

The truth is, the longer you put off making these decisions, the more stressful they become.

When making a big decision, you need to be in a calm state of mind. 

Sometimes our emotions can play tricks on our brain and make us do things we wouldn't normally do.

Take a deep breath. Breathe in. Breathe out. And think!

Trust Your Intuition

Your intuition is one of your biggest gifts - so take advantage of it! 

Sometimes the body can send us signals our minds just can't.

Does the idea of working at that new startup make your stomach hurt and head spin? Take a minute to listen. This may be your body trying to talk to you.

Move

Several studies show that too much sitting is bad for our health.

Regular activity helps balance our mind and body. Which in turn, increases motivation and can even make us feel more in control.

We aren't saying you should quit your desk job. However, every hour you can get up and stretch your legs for a few minutes. 

This may feel like an insignificant activity at first, but every movement adds up. Learn More
