That Time I Felt Apprehensive My Future

Planning: A tool which aids us in organising ourselves better whilst putting new creative pursuits into action. Alternatively organising events, days out and more, for friends, family and acquaintances to mingle and catch up in.

For me, planning means drawing together all of your key skills and using them to implement a better strategy for yourself. For example, planning a meet up with a long time colleague amongst a chaotic week or even scheduling in a dinner with long distant family members.

In essence, planning can make us extremely apprehensive and anxious if we let it overwhelm us too quickly. Staying organised is one thing, but planning bigger and larger events can always prove interesting. However, in order for us to understand how we plan it is vitally important for us to understand ourselves. This is because everyone plans different. Some ways to effectively plan include:

  • Keeping a reflective journal

  • Starting a 6 minute mindfulness journal

  • Keeping tabs on your habits and how you organise yourself under pressure.

In today’s day and age technology is a centre part to whatever we do. It is so important to understand that we are not machines or robots. Thus have limited capabilities when it comes to organising ourselves efficiently and making plans for the better. It is here that we should really value time out for ourselves and allow ourselves time to refresh from technology.


What I learnt from this experience:

  • Keeping a journal is a great way to stay mindful and proactive. It will also aid you in keeping track of your overall emotions and future goals. Whilst aiding you in planning coherently and clearly without too much background noise.

  • It is okay to feel a little drained time to time, especially when you know you have a lot to plan. The solution is to schedule in some rest breaks, in order for your mind and body to relax and take in your surroundings even more.
