When you find yourself in a mess:Clean Up
I have a friend, who lost her job. And it devasted her. And you know how it goes, sometimes we get hit from all sides. Her boyfriend dumped her at the same time. "My life is a mess," she said to me. And i am sure some of you can identify with that feeling.
So how does one get out of the mess, it's so simple, i bet you wont even try :O) : The answer is CLEAN UP YOUR MESS. "What do you mean by clean up your mess ?" she asked me. And i told her to start cleaning up whatever mess that she sees around her. I personally supervised her clean up her room, her cupboard, her bathroom, her kitchen and her house. At the end of the day, she was in great spirits. "Totally healed," she said.
You see, whatever happens in our emotional world, affects our physical bodies and our physical environment. And the reverse is also true. Whatever happens in our physical environment affects our physical bodies and our emotional state. So if the emotional state is a mess, eventually the body will sicken and the environment will also mess up. By cleaning up the environment, we are indirectly cleaning up our emotions.
According to DHE (Design Human Engineering), our emotions affect our physiology and vice versa. So whenever you find yourself in an emotional dump, start cleaning up. You will be amazed at the healing it causes. And once you are in a stable emotional state, you will look at issues with a different, more objective perspective and any situation becomes "solvable".
So next time when you find yourself low, in a mess, heart broken, sad, depressed, you know what to do :O) !! Clean Up
