Live More, Worry Less April 3, 2021

Posted by nrhatch in Happiness, Humor, Life Balance, Mindfulness.

Be a warrior, not a worrier.

Live more, worry less.

Breathe in calmness. ย Breathe out worry.

Make the rest of your life the best of your life.

Aah . . . that’s better!

Upbeat on a Saturday!

nrhatch - April 3, 2021

Yes! I leave all discussions of the pending apocalypse for Tuesdays at 2:37 pm. ๐Ÿ˜€

Kate Crimmins - April 3, 2021

There’s an apocalypse. Dang! I cleaned the house today. First time since we moved 6 weeks ago too!

nrhatch - April 3, 2021

Woo Hoo! I expect the pending apocalypse is not on the immediate horizon. It will be a few years down the road before Armageddon halts us in our tracks.

In the meantime, enjoy your neat and tidy abode over the rim of a margarita glass. ๐Ÿ˜€

More great wisdom Nancy. Thank you for sharing ๐Ÿ˜Ž I often joke about warrior, not worrier pose in class.

nrhatch - April 3, 2021

It’s such a great reminder since this modern world is designed to make us fret and worry. Far better to channel our inner warrior AND our “maybe” mind.

You must have been reading my journal with that first one. ๐Ÿ˜ƒ I worry way too much!

nrhatch - April 3, 2021

Haha! I would NEVER read someone else’s journal . . . but worry tends to be a tendency that many of us share. Here’s one for you:

Worry is interest paid on a debt not yet owed.

Thanks, Carolyn! Have a Happy Easter . . . full of smiles.

Very welcome! Wishing you many smiles too!

Minimizing and eliminating worry is something I constantly work on, Nancy. Breath is a big one. Everything about this post made me smile. Especially the two cuties at the top. Thank you for the moments of joy. ๐Ÿ™‚

Thanks, Erica. I snapped that shot at the library presentation on Japan. The speaker brought them . . . along with a ton of food:

A Taste of Japan

Hope your day overflows with joy and lemony goodness!

My daughter gave me an Apple watch for my birthday in March. It has a “breathe” reminder on it, which goes off semi-regularly and asks me to stop and breathe with it (it vibrates a certain way. At first I thought it was kind of silly, but I have decided to go with it, and use it to refocus on calm. I am certainly all in with living more and worrying less. ๐Ÿ™‚

nrhatch - April 6, 2021

Haha! It is kind of silly to think that we have to be reminded to breathe . . . BUT breathing is so intertwined with our health and well-being when we are doing it “right” that it’s worth the focus and the refocus.

Breathe. Relax. Repeat. Ohm . . . .

As I’ve gotten older I worry less– or maybe it’s that I worry purposefully now. Focus on what needs to be changed in my life so I can move forward, living more. It’s kind of a circle.

nrhatch - April 6, 2021

When our “worry” causes us to make positive changes . . . that’s creative brainstorming! A good thing. ๐Ÿ˜€

When we worry about nothing . . . not good. When we worry about something we can do nothing about . . . also not good. When we worry about something that has nothing to do with us . . . waste of time.

But meta worrying (worrying about worrying) ~> still worse! ๐Ÿ˜†

Ally Bean - April 6, 2021

I’ve met a few meta worriers. I always wonder if it’s a chemical imbalance within them– or if they just like to worry. Of course not knowing the answer to that doesn’t worry me!

nrhatch - April 6, 2021

Smart! Let them worry about it!
