In recent years, many adults have become overwhelmed with stress and anxiety do to the fact that they are burdened with the amount of tasks they much complete each day. Because so many individuals feel the need to take on so many things to create a successful and happy life, they have weighed themselves down with too much to do and not enough time to do it which has led people down a path towards unhealthy and unbalanced lives.
Generally speaking, most adults wake up at 6am and go to bed around 11pm or midnight. During this time these people are on the go from going to work to running errands and taking care of their children. Sadly, there is very little time for healthy leisure which allows the individual to recharge their mental well-being. Even worse, many people are spending so much time in front of their screens that they are being inundated with negative news and information that can bring on negative thoughts.
Because people are being overwhelmed by all of these negative messages and because they are inundated with so much work that is causing them stress, many people are being led down a path that is causing them to be stressed out and riddled with anxiety. Unfortunately when this happens, these people either turn to alcohol or drugs to try and suppress their emotions.
However, in a recent study it has been shown that spending fifteen minutes a day either meditating or reading positive quotes and phrases can be quite beneficial. Spending this time allows the mind to calm down and focus on more positive thoughts. By doing so, this will allow the mind to process what is going on in their lives so that they don’t become overwhelmed with all of the negative things going on in their life.
