3 steps to live like a Jellyfish
1. Chill out. Relax.
Life can be tough, but it doesn’t always have to be as tough as we make it out to be. We all have responsibilities, but what matters most is our internal state. Even when the outside is chaotic, you can train yourself to be like a jellyfish on the inside. One of the best ways to do this is by practicing meditation.
The last part of the “be calm” secret is to put your problems into one of two categories: either accept them because you can’t change them or determine and execute a solution. Worrying can’t fix a problem. We’re most effective when we’re calm and collected.
2. Redirect your life when necessary.
Jellyfish seem content to float along, but they will swim if they have a reason. Their efforts aren’t wasted either, as jellyfish are one of the most efficient swimmers in the ocean!
To swiftly respond to life events properly requires practice in decision-making. The more decisions you make and execute, the better you’ll get at it. The rewards or negative consequences of making or not making decisions respectively are high, so make sure you’re practicing being decisive.
3. Protect your boundaries.
Box jellyfish are nicknamed “sea wasps” because, you know, stinging.
Most jellyfish are not pushovers. In fact, the box jellyfish protects its boundaries by being one of the most venomous creatures on the planet.
One of the worst and most common ways people fail to set boundaries is being too nice. When asked to do something, there are people who will say yes no matter what because they desire to please everyone. Saying “no” is important sometimes! Not saying “no” is suffocating, and it’s like the jellyfish never swimming, only going where the tide takes it.
Boundaries are not rude, they are your natural right to protect what matters to you.
Jellyfish set boundaries like few other creatures. Give them their space or else!
