  1. Thank you once again Simple Living Global for another very real and relatable blog.

    I know that when I used to have crazy days, I used to want to just give up and slump into them.

    However more recently I have noticed that my attitude has changed. These days what I find is that rather than giving up, I stay focused on what I know supports me to stay committed.

    For example, I may be at work and it may be very hectic with lots of things happening and being asked of me. In my approach firstly I remind myself to be gentle https://simplelivingglobal.com/be-gentle/ and not go hard or into a drive to meet the demands.

    Whilst doing things gently, I focus on what I need to do for the task at hand and place my attention on that, rather than getting caught up in any emotions that may be flying around. I find that this supports me to keep steady and unemotional.

    Yesterday was one such day and what I also found supportive was meeting a friend for a walk at the end of my working day. We didn’t talk about the day, but just the movement of the walk and connecting with another helped me to let go of the tension I was carrying.

    However it doesn’t stop there, whatever support systems I choose, I also find that it is important for me to review afterwards whether I had contributed to the day being crazy and whether there was anything I could do differently next time. This I find is a key part of taking responsibility.

  2. I have used the term crazy days when I do not want to take responsibility for what is going on in my life. It is like life is so crazy that there is nothing I can do about what is happening.

    I have to remember that everything in my life is my creation. When I look at it like that it is much easier to stop and make more responsible choices.

    Suppose this crazy world, that we have created, is because of our individual choices?

    This website has been presenting some of the crazy things that are going on in the world. How crazy does it have to get before we wake up?

    It is time to take responsibility for all the craziness we have created.

  3. This blog is so on the button with its insights and humour. And its timing.

    Shouting at inanimate objects. Thrashing the car. Losing stuff. Choosing the wrong footwear…

    There is such truth here.

    And why indeed?

    Why do we have these crazy days? Do they just ‘happen’ or do we have a part to play?

    I had a particularly crazy day early this week, with everything coming at me at work. It was like ‘drinking from the firehose’, as they say.

    But the truth is I get to choose. To choose whether to drink. To choose how to respond.

    If I drop my focus, I can get carried by the momentum. If I stay steady in my rhythm and make conscious choices, with focus, I do not.

    I’m finding time and again that Simple Living works. It just takes some practice.

    1. I love this..simple living really does work, and does take practice. Practice to let go of all the complication and distractions and craziness we’ve added to our lives, but never really needed to.

      What I am finding is that connecting to my body – feeling me, feeling what is there to be done next – provides a space and a steadiness that no amount of outside external distraction can compete with. I still (quite often) lose myself in work, and sometimes in emotions, although far less so, and for far less time, because I don’t get that sense of solid contentment that I feel when I’m connected to what I can feel, and moving from there, not caught up in an external whirlwind.

  4. This blog is a must read.

    I know I have said in the past “today was crazy”. But I have come to realise over the past 7 years it does not have to be. From the way we get up in the morning, to the way we go to bed can have a profound positive affect in the way we live daily.

    Today has been a really busy day and I am writing this from work. But to me I do not class this as a Crazy Day.
    For me it has been a productive day without the need to push myself. Things can get done but equally over doing it does not have to be.

  5. I feel that everyone would agree that the world is a crazier place now then it was 20 years ago.

    So the question is, Is our world on the right track?
    Is it time to stop and re assess?
    Why are things so out of control?
    Is it time to do something really different?

    This website that has been giving us updates on the state of our world, is also presenting the possibility that how we are living is the cause of all our problems. And if we make simple common sense changes in our lives, it can have a huge effect on our own lives, and the world.

    Simple Living Global’s, Back to Basics Program has supported me and many other people in all walks of life to make changes in their life, by making more loving choices.

    I feel 10 years younger. Have more energy. I Am less reactive to life.
    I am 66 years old and I am ready for whatever life has to offer me!

  6. I was talking to someone yesterday and it was clear to see how they feed off craziness. Life is peppered with drama.

    It made me realise how much we create ourselves. And it made me question what it would be like to live without all these creations – to live without issues and drama and reactions.

    Is that possible? I feel it is and I am experimenting with this.

  7. I have noticed that when I can stay stay with myself and observe all the craziness around me it makes it easier to just laugh at this crazy world we have created.

    Then I do not get caught up in it, and I can focus on my quality of my being in the world.

    This is the start of another way.

  8. Thank you for another marvellous blog posing important questions about the quality in which we live our daily lives.

    What comes to mind for me now when I consider the topic of crazy days are those days I frequently used to live without checking in at all to feel how I felt or pausing to take stock and gather myself.

    In the past, I would often be living completely in reaction to things, without any agency of my own, and wholly in other people’s momentum.

    An example of this would be those days when I would go out drinking after work.

    I frequently used to work long hours, with a long commute to and from work, and then after work I’d go to the pub and then go clubbing with colleagues or friends. I’d have 3 or 4 hours sleep then get up and to to work again. During these days I would disregard any exhaustion I felt, eat poorly and use cigarettes and alcohol to keep going. I was just adding to the exhaustion in my body and there was no real joy in these experiences even though I was meant to be having a good time.

    So one crazy thing I often did was go to a nightclub and spend all time I was at the club wishing I was not there. This was because I would often go to nightclubs mid week after work, even though I didn’t want to, because my friends wanted to and I wanted to please them. I would then sit sipping a drink for hours, all the time wishing that I was at home in bed because I was exhausted and I did not want to be there in the first place.

    This was doing what other people wanted to do in the pursuit of fun and distraction, disregarding how I really felt, and being miserable all the while. That is crazy!

  9. It has been a really busy couple of weeks with work. Most would call it a crazy couple of weeks given what I have had to complete. But I do not. For me I still make sure I look after myself and not push myself until I am exhausted.
    Putting myself first is key.

  10. I think you hit the nail on the head near the end of this blog, Simple living Global, when you ask whether our crazy days are a choice or not and whether it is a simple case of taking responsibility for our choices.

    Without doubt I would say the answer is yes.

    I have spent most of my life having these crazy days, indulging in food, in alcohol, in Video’s/DVD’s/TV, in sport, in entertainment, in being totally care-less and love-less.

    All that changed about 11 years ago when I started to attend the presentations of Serge Benhayon, the founder of Universal Medicine and from that time my crazy days, on the whole, have gone by the wayside. There have been occasional times when I have gone back to being crazy but they are really just an odd moment now, rather than days.

    We are very good at justifying or blaming, but if we do something crazy, if we allow someone else’s crazy behaviour to affect us, if we react to any situation—it is our choice.

    Whether we like to hear it or not, whether we feel we have no choice, whether we feel something is out of our hands, with absolutely everything in our lives, the choices we make will always be ours and ours alone.

    Is it possible that the reason we allow ourselves to have these crazy days or even crazy moments is because, in truth, we don’t want to take full responsibility for ourselves and we don’t want to take full responsibility for what is going on in our world?

  11. Thank you for this marvellous blog.

    I have a pattern of having crazy, hectic days at times when I’m particularly exhausted.

    And, after the crazy day has passed, I tend to have a day soon after when I have virtually collapsed through exhaustion and need to rest.

    I know that I am responsible for everything I experience. So, I am now wondering if I have been creating these crazy days in periods when I am exhausted in order to have days that offer drama, motion and stimulation for my head so that my head will override the exhaustion in my body that I have been refusing to surrender to.

  12. I could not remember the last time I had a crazy day. My life now is so different to what it was eight years ago.

    Even when I can Feel a crazy day coming on for example at work; I always take a gentle breath and Stop what I am doing and take a moment to observe what is going on.

    What I now realise is that my previous Crazy days were my choices that I made and got me there in the first place.
