Foresee the Unforeseen

Unforeseen events happen. There is no avoiding them, one minute you’re driving down the road minding your own business. The next, bam! You’ve been rear-ended, and your car is a wreck. Insurance obviously helps in the event of this, but that doesn’t help with the psychological effects. Are you one to jump out of the car, see red, and make things ten times worse? There is no need to lose your cool in any situation. Here are some methods to help prepare you in the event of something unforeseen.


Acceptance
The first thing you need to do before anything happens, is be aware that at any moment your life can change exponentially. If you know this and can accept that you may lose everything at any time, you are more mentally prepared than most. You will be able to come to terms with a huge life change much more quickly, which in turn means that things will improve for you more quickly too. Life is better once you learn to accept reality the way it is.

Learn to manage your emotions
No matter how prepared you may be, you do not know how you will react in any given circumstance until it happens. It may be worth your while learning how to meditate. Meditation has many benefits, such as helping you deal with stress. When the time comes, you are going to need to be able to calm yourself down in order to think clearly. You do not want to go out and make rash decisions, which could make things much worse. Managing emotions is critical in times of unforeseen events. So learn how to clear your mind, and the correct path will open up to you.

Finances
This is an important one, and where a lot of the stress can come from in the event of something unforeseen happening like losing your job. It is definitely worth your while setting aside some money. It is an excellent idea to create an emergency fund to cushion you should something untoward happen, and this will give you breathing space. You should look towards being financially free, so try to pay off those debts, and live frugally. Do not be in the habit of spending more than you earn. You may want to think about protecting your family by getting life insurance. But, if something completely unexpected does happen, there are people who can help. For example, if you are hurt in an accident, then get yourself an injury attorney who does not charge unless they win you the compensation you are owed.

Don’t sweat the small stuff
Things happen every day that are not part of the plan of life, and if you manage to wind yourself up about every little thing, you are not going to have a fun life. Stressing over everything can actually reduce your lifespan and make you appear older quicker. So learn to relax, practice mindfulness, and always try and put things into context. Is that person giving you the middle finger when out driving really that important to your life?
