But one thing is for sure, when it appears it is time to give up control and look at your problems from another angle. To help you do this, don’t hesitate to practice a sport activity. Indeed, some sports are known to promote letting go .
Fatigue and the need to let go
Other symptoms that suggest a need to let go include fatigue. Our body sends us a message. It tells us that we need to recharge our batteries. When this message is not heard by the overworked person, other symptoms may appear: anxiety, feeling of not being up to it, irritability. While not serious, these small emotional upsets should be monitored to ensure that they do not get out of hand. It is also important to take the time to learn the appropriate lessons. Generally, these symptoms are the direct cause of anxious ruminations. The person repeats his or her worries or failures over and over again. The individual worries about the future, revives the past, and forgets to enjoy the present moment. When your thoughts start to spin around, it’s time to let go.
