How to Stop Crowding Your Life

Your overwhelm, emotional outbursts, and procrastination habits are unhealthy coping mechanisms because your life is crowded.

Overcrowding is when you are past your threshold and are spiraling.

👁 Crowding is the step right before that and when joy starts to diminish. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

💥Either your mind is bouncing around from one branch to another OR your focus/concentration actually creates more ‘rushing’ to get this done and that finished.⠀⠀⠀⠀

Does it sound similar to overcrowding?

Sure. It’s a thin line of difference between it and crowding. The energy usage and output are degrees of chaos for both.

The key question is — how did you get to crowding your life in the first place? Do you even know you’re doing it anymore?

Some ways in which it originates:

🌟 Your values such as “I am here to serve” which is based on diminished self-worth

🌟 Your beliefs such as “I am not enough if my plate is not full to the edge” (lack mindset/running away)

🌟 Any ‘should’ or ‘must’ self-imposed statements in your subconscious programming

🌟 Trauma-based ideas about responsibility and service

🌟 An unhealthy relationship with power and lack

The above-mentioned variables are deeply rooted systems, many times originating from mini traumas (everyday occurrences of anxiety triggering environments) or, large events in someone’s life solidifying flight/fight/freeze responses.

Crowding your life is often a habit, and changing a habit is about attention and intention.

How do you change the crowding habit and experience more joy?

It’s a 2-step process.
