Thirteen Things You Can Control Immediately That Will Lift You Up

Better navigate through uncertain times.

Do you ever waste precious energy by worrying about the future?

If you ever feel you lost your locus of control, it’s likely because you’re spending the majority of your days worrying about things you can’t influence.

As Mark Twain once wrote:

If you spend your days worrying about the wrong things, you’ll likely lack the inspiration, energy, and motivation to focus on the things that matter.

Ryder Caroll, the Bullet journal's inventor, once said, “we burn through a lot of resources obsessing over possible outcomes and forming contingency plans, but in reality, we’re just fueling our anxiety. Trying to think our way out of situations beyond our control may feel productive, but it’s nothing more than a powerful distraction. Worry baits us with the promise of a solution but usually offers none.”

By focusing on the following thirteen things, you’ll focus on the things you can control and bring happiness and freedom into your life.

“The soul becomes dyed with the color of its thoughts,” Marcus Aurelius once wrote. Either you sit down on your cushion and cleanse your thoughts, or you don’t. Nobody else can meditate for you.

Throughout our lives, all of us experience trauma. But it’s up to you, whether you do the inner work. Holocaust survivor Dr. Edith Eger wrote, “We cannot choose to have a life free of hurt, but we can choose to be free.” Journaling, fasting, therapy, coaching, psychedelics, or applicable self-help books might set you free.

You only have one body in this life. Do you crumble on your desk chair or get your body moving? It’s in your control to stretch, foam-roll, practice yoga, or sweat once, twice, thrice, or every day of your week.
