Did you identify and feels familiar with some of these points?

No doubt, if we are in inner conditions of chronic stress, worn-out, insomnia and anxiety our capacity of optimum performance, decreases drastically.

1.The first step to minimize this hectic  inner environment is self-awareness.

Awareness is the state of being conscious of something. More specifically, it is the ability to directly know and perceive, to feel, or to be cognizant of events. Wikipedia

 

Though we never see the whole picture of ourselves and we all have blind spots of perception, we can decide to develop an inner eye of observation which records what’s going on without judgement. We can start a journal / diary and write incidents when one or more of the points above are activated in us. – Mention the situation, the people you were with, and the atmosphere that to be less attentive, hyperactive or both.

2. Making sure that the basics of wellness - - well-being of our weekly routines are within the normal curve:

1. healthy food

2. moving our body

3. reducing mental, emotional and physical stress daily

4. sleeping 6-7 hours a night

5. manifesting our creativity

 

3. Adopting new habit of Reset-Reboot-Recharge and Restart our daily activities with fresh vitality

As complex bio-psycho creatures, humans consume vitality to maintain and sustain life, be healthy, and take actions to fulfill daily missions.

The idea of the 4R above together with the following 4R: reduce pain, reduce insomnia, reduce stress, reduce anxiety, will Recuperate  our attention (additional R), yet keeping our minds clearer and bodies calmer.
