How finding your purpose helps you reduce stress and overwhelm.


Day 8 of the unexpected benefits of knowing your purpose - you reduce your stress and overwhelm.

Let's honest - stress and overwhelm suck. It's so easy to get caught up in all that needs to be done and get pulled in so many directions that you lose sight of yourself and the possibility of living a life you really love.

Knowing your purpose helps with that.

When you know who you are and what you are about and you have the confidence that you can and will take actions consistent with that purpose, then you don't stress as much about what to do or if you will do it.

You just know that there is some step that you can take to keep moving forward. So you take a breath and you do it.

Purpose, since it is always about yourself and others, fosters connections that are real and authentic so you can actually relax and be yourself in more places. That means you know you have the community and the support to do what it is that you want to do even if it seems incredibly overwhelming.

Plus, since you are part of "yourself and others", purpose helps you figure out what you need and get more of that. Being your best self always helps with solving challenging problems. And if going for a hike, spending time with friends or reading a book helps you be your best self, then I say make those things a priority.

As always, purpose isn't about perfections so it's not like stress and overwhelm never show up in your life. Because they do. But knowing your purpose helps take the edge off so those things don't stop you.

That's the eighth unexpected benefit of knowing your purpose. If you want to see the other 9, go here.
