Think of people with bigger problems

You have problems.

Things keeping you awake at night and dwelling on your mind by day.

It’s easy to let your worries weigh you down, drown you.

That way lies certain failure.

You need to keep moving forward, keep battling. That’s the only way out of your problems. 

Here are some tricks to help manage the mental overhead: 

Meditation – clear your mind, stay in the present, don’t worry about things that haven’t happened.

Stoic philosophy – only pay attention to things you can influence. 

Think of people with bigger problems – when you open your eyes to the world around you, you’ll realise everyone has problems, most of which are bigger than yours. It makes it easier to bear your load.
