Most of the things that cause us stress are not so much big things in life as much as the little nagging gnats that keep pestering us. These are the things that we put of doing like making a phone call we need to make, getting that doctor’s appointment, getting our teeth cleaned, getting the oil changed, getting the car inspected, organizing our office or kitchen, cleaning the garage, cleaning projects, pulling weeds, getting clothes repaired etc, etc. It’s always put off until another day, but the only thing that gets put off is eliminating stress that we don’t need! When we keep putting things off, we are creating energy drainers for our life. Subtly and slowly unattended things that we are tolerating are really slowly zapping our energy and causing subtle stress that keeps piling up!
How do you get rid of those pesky gnats that keep flying around? Start taking them down one at a time. Make a laundry list of the things that you are tolerating from the small to the great. Go after the gnats first. Get intentional with your life. Schedule a time on your calendar to get each one done. Watch your life and your mental state get de-cluttered and re-energize your life!
