If you are a Christian that suffers from negative thoughts, create a mental gatekeeper to stop these thoughts from gaining an entrance.
Burning the candle at both ends is a surefire way to stress, anxiety, and ultimately unhappiness. It was never God’s intention for us to live our daily lives like we’re racing in the Indy 500, but if we’re not careful that’s exactly how will end up.
Whenever I go through periods of restlessness, inner turmoil or anxiety, it’s not time to go outer but to go inner. Through being still, quiet contemplation, and Christian meditation, I take time to look inside my heart to see what’s pulling or motivating me away from my center in Christ.
