How to Stop the Stress of Hardships and Grow!

We Can Stop the Stress of Hardships and Grow!​

Hardships, trauma, and toxic productivity —It’s a cycle that can be hard to break. You’re not feeling well, your job is stressing you out, you’ve suffered a loss or abuse, and the list goes on, with everyday tasks becoming more difficult as time progresses. These are just some factors that cause us to get little sleep and become unable to do even the mundane things in our day-to-day lives. If you notice, it honestly is a vicious cycle that takes away enjoyment from our life.

If this sounds familiar, tune in to episode 65, where I am joined by Stephanie Hutchins, who founded Serotinous Life and authored “Transformation After Trauma.” We’ll help break the toxic cycle and shed light on how hardships have impacted our ability to achieve goals while providing insight into what these obstacles really mean.
We’ll also discuss the importance of our personal development and how to incorporate daily-self care into our routines even when we feel like we don’t have the time!

Trauma can affect us in ways we don’t even realize. It really does depend on the extent of our trauma and what we have done to cope with it, but some aspects are similar to others. One of them is fear. We can get scared to listen to our own intuition and begin to second-guess our choices because we believe that this is one of the aspects that may have led us to hardship. Another could be our comfort bubble. We end up feeling so safe in our comfort bubble; we start believing that we don’t want to or need to leave it.

These are just some things that hinder our growth and pursuit of better opportunities by keeping us away from challenging ourselves. Tune in to Episode 65 of the Total Fit Boss Chick Podcast as we talk more about what we can do to help ourselves to get out of our toxic cycles!

Moving Forward From Hardships

Before we talk about what’s discussed in this episode, we need to self-reflect. Are we ready to change? Do we want to change? We need to be honest with ourselves about what we’re willing to do in order to know what we can do moving forward and break away from our toxic cycles. 

Key Points to Enjoying Life 

One of the key points discussed in the episode that hinders us is our limiting beliefs

The first step is to realize that we have limiting beliefs. It could be as simple as saying you don’t have time to work on this or don’t have the skills for this opportunity. This type of mentality immediately stops you from achieving your goals and hinders your growth! 

Changing our mindset can be difficult, so let’s take it one step at a time. We can change it by speaking to ourselves, which can help us be more resourceful. When we become resourceful, we will see opportunities we didn’t realize were there before! 

So, when you say you don’t have time for something—state what you are putting your time to right now or throughout your schedule. Before you know it, you will notice that you do have time to work on things that will challenge you. A little tip, obstacles will seem big and large, but when you become resourceful and break them down, these hurdles will ensure that you will learn and grow!
