The importance of being in the right frame of mind

I’ve come to realise that when I tackle things when I’m in the wrong state of mind  … they never turn out well.

Plunging into deep relationship talks when you’re not mentally and emotionally prepared for them is a terrible idea.

Driving while angry, upset, or stressed is a recipe for disaster.

Tackling a new baking recipe late on a weeknight when you really would rather be in bed and are not prepared for conversions and painstaking measurement of ingredients will result in a lot of waste and a lot of swearing.

Choose your time and place wisely.

    Your post reminds me of listening to comedy or seeing a funny movie and not laughing. If you are not in the right mood, the comedy is lost. I think you need to deal with things mentally before you deal with a goal, plan or decision.

    I have found this too and I have been working on changing my mindset the last couple years. Things have improved and I find I am less stressed. I am hoping I can keep it up.
