10 Tiny Tricks to Quit the Crazy Empty 10 Tiny Tricks to Quit the Crazy

How to recognize when you are letting the crazy in …

you can’t sleep
you are driving friends crazy talking about the crazy
you are eating or drinking too much (or not enough)
How to recognize if you are making the crazy …

you are obsessing over things that are none of your business
you are driving friends crazy because you are acting crazy
you can’t possibly imagine that you are the crazy maker
Let’s face it. Sometimes we are the crazy.

Whatever the case may be, it’s time to quit the crazy. We have important work to do in the world, beautiful days to enjoy, like-hearted people to connect with, 7-8 hours of sleep to savor. We owe it to ourselves and the people we love to keep the crazy on the outside.

10 Ways to Quit the Crazy
1. Breathe
Connect to your breath not just as a remedy, but as preventative medicine by developing a daily practice that invites you to breathe. Over time, the stillness you create on the inside acts like a force field against outside craziness all day long.

2. Walk
Some kinds of crazy require a really long walk, but often a short stroll to shake it off will do.

3. Laugh
If you really start thinking about how crazy the crazy is, laughter is inevitable.

4. Soothe
Take a bath. Cuddle a puppy. Call a friend. Do what it takes to soothe your soul.

5. Under-react
Don’t engage. Just notice. Write about it. Let it go. Your heart will thank you.

6. Fast
Turn off the news. Don’t answer the phone. Remove the Facebook app. Make a little space for yourself to rest and renew.

7. Forgive
Maybe you let the crazy in, or discovered you are the crazy this time. Either way, forgive yourself. Start over.

8. Be
Perhaps you don’t have to do anything right now. Being you, being still, that’s enough for today.

9. Leave
“You don’t have to show up to every argument you’re invited to.” – Mandy Hale (no need to elaborate here)

10. Love
If you are feeling anxious, or worried, or upset about the craziness around you, engage in an activity you love or serve others with love. When you turn your focus to helping, you’ll forget all about the crazy.

Choose to under-react. Choose to take a few (hundred) deep breaths. Choose a long walk. Don’t let the crazy in.

Just because everything is crazy around you doesn’t mean everything has to be crazy within you.

HOW TO CONTROL YOUR EMOTIONS
Next time you’re faced with a situation that elicits strong feelings from you, pause to consider what meaning you’re going to attach to it. You can develop emotional control by using one of the following tactics:

1. TAKE A DEEP BREATH
Instead of reacting right away – whether positively or negatively – give yourself a moment to process what just happened.

2. FIND OUT WHAT YOU’RE FEELING
It’s easy to say, “I’m feeling angry because they hurt me.” Dig deeper. Are you angry because you’re afraid they’re right? Are you sad? Emotions are complex and often piggyback onto one another.

3. REPLACE NEGATIVE THOUGHTS
If your mind goes straight to how you’ve been wronged or how terrible everything is, divert yourself. Dwelling on negativity will only make you more prone to it, so focus on positive emotions. Change your thoughts and change your story.

4. CHANNEL YOUR ENERGY
Human emotions are incredibly powerful. Let that energy go by participating in some sort of physical activity – going for a run or a walk, or even shooting some hoops.

5. EXPLORE YOUR EMOTIONS
Why do you feel the way you do? Journaling or talking with a trusted friend or family member can help you understand why you’re feeling what you do. Once you understand an emotion, it’s that much easier to control it.

ACTIONS AND THE FORMULA THAT MAKES UP OUR LIVES
When you feel certain ways, you do certain things. Our patterns of behavior, from negative ones like smoking to positive ones like going to the gym, all stem from our desire to meet some of our six human needs, the meaning we’ve assigned and the feelings we have. The pattern then becomes our life story, what we tell ourselves about who we are and why we are that way. Instead of practicing emotional control, we likely feel adrift and powerless.

While we can’t control the triggers we encounter in our lives, we can control the meanings we extract from the events that occur, therefore controlling our feelings and, more broadly, our lives. If you’re trying to make a change in your life, examine what meanings you already have, then make up new ones. Emotional control is all about making the meaning you want – otherwise you’ll continue to repeat old patterns and not make any lasting change.

THE FORMULA
We can reduce the cycle of meaning’s complexity to a single formula:

Meaning = Emotion = Life

So if you’re looking to change your mood, change the meaning you’re taking from the triggering event. When you ask yourself, “How can I control my emotions?” what you’re really asking is, “How can I assign positive meaning to this event, instead of letting negative feelings linger?” You have the power to shift your mindset and improve your life, because life is happening for you, not to you.
