Planning, Is A Stress Management Tool
Why do we plan?
Planning, is part of stress relieving methods. Can you work all day, that is 24 hours, without relaxing, or resting? Well, can you finish all that work too in just one day? Certainly not.
Will you be able to make all the money you want to make in this life, in just one day?
Have Leisure; Relax! It’s better to carefully plan and to take your time knowing what to do, at each day! Even God who’s a supernatural God, did not build the universe and prospered with it all in one day!
As a father, He planned each days work intelligently, implementing quarter of the work per each day. See that here:
3 And God said, “Let there be light’’….And there was evening, and there was morning—the first day.
6 And God said, “Let there be a vault between the waters to separate water from water.” 7 So God made the vault and separated the water…And there was evening, and there was morning—the second day.
9 And God said, “Let the water under the sky be gathered to one place, and let dry ground appear.” And it was so. 10 God called the dry ground “land,” and the gathered waters he called “seas.” And God saw that it was good.
11 Then God said, “Let the land produce vegetation: seed-bearing plants and…And there was evening, and there was morning—the third day.
Gen. 1:3-11 NIV.
It was all throughout to the 6th day. To de-stress Himself God allowed intervals of rest between each of the days, to conserve His energies!
This pre-supposes that before He’d started the work, He’d planned! As an all time producer, He’d planned each day’s work one-step at a time, just intelligently implementing a quarter of the work each day. So God rested, to replenish His energies.(This is the whole mystery about Sabbath Rest).
So one of the reasons why we live a disordered and a stressful life is when we don’t plan like our Father does; so stress sets in when we do not take steps to plan each of our days, before setting off, in the journey of working out, each one of our life’s assignments!
Therefore, plan immediately as to which work you’ll be doing the following day; and plan as to what you’ll do each week to properly advance your life’s work. When you’ve planned on what to do on each of days, you’ll know just like our God, which work should go ahead to do the following day, without wasting much time.
And so, once you’ve done that you’ll have enough time for resting at the end of the day, and at the end of each working week, also.
For lack of money, men overwork and stress their entire being out. Where are you running to? Life has not come to an end!
There are more days ahead, and patience is a virtue.
Intelligently, like God, build a working calendar for yourself, to plan each of your works. Many people claim that, 24 hours and 7 days are not enough for them. Therefore, because they don’t plan, 24 hours are not good enough for them. However, just these same 24 hours for 7 days were enough for God to build this entire Great Universe; how many more, does their small works need, to finalize up their small, or simple issues? What at all are they building, which seems to be Bigger Than The Maker’s Own?
So then, this means, they waste a lot of time just because they don’t plan; just because they don’t plan enough or well, they think 24 hours aren’t still enough.
Now, the Lord finally said to me that, if you’re able to plan your works well before the next day, before 4.00 o’clock in the evening you should be able to finish up all your works, and then to go home and have enough rest, to prepare immensely for the next day. In this wise, you’ll not burden or stress Your Mind, Or Your Muscles!
Thus, according to Him, the best time to close from the day’s work is 4.OO O’clock but not 5.OO, as this modern world, is made to believe. After 4, you’ll also have enough time to rest, and to stay, and have enough quality time with your family-on each and everyday! Yet, not only that, but this will cause you to work proficiently, in the next day of your life’s work!
It’s good to plan, so than you can rest! This is all you need, to de-stress yourself in your next working DAYS!
