It is often difficult to stay in control of ourselves when it feels like the world around us is going mad. The pull we feel to control is based upon our feelings of fear and subsequent anger and with this we often find ourselves reacting. This dynamic happens in relationships at work, at home and in the broader spectrum of our world.
Fear always focuses on the negative and overlooks the positives. Although challenging, we can change the way we think and what we focus upon. With a mindfulness stance we can calm our fears and change our focus by redirecting ourselves to what we can do (aka positive focus & thoughts) so as to gain the awareness of what we have the power to control.
