These days some of us live in fear that something terrible is about to happen any moment, I kind of feel this way myself working at a high school and dealing with teens on a regular basis. I don’t want to leave my job because I actually like it. The environment is what impacts us but let’s not forget that we all contribute to it this way or another.
Growing up I was a really brave little soul, so why is it changing with time? Maybe we should be like young kids completely oblivious of all the evils happening around us… Not very mature approach to facing reality but possibly helpful, what do you think? Gurus teach us that mindfulness is something we should practice to cope with fear and anxiety. Some of us are really successful in this but not me, I have to say. Doing breathing exercises helps me relax along with coloring and blogging.
Often I have to remind myself: Do not worry about tomorrow, because tomorrow will take care about itself. But how do you guys make it work? I try to bring a bit of sunshine every morning I show up at work. I try to create a non-confrontational atmosphere in the workplace. I try to actively listen to others, it usually helps them feel better.
I am sure that some of you know a lot more having years and years of experience. Feel free to share your tips in comments.
