How Laidback Are You?
Don’t sweat the small stuff. Just ease into each day and start it off in a good mood. Easygoing people seem to have an easier life. That may be a generalization, but being a laidback person does make for at least a better start to each day. If you can minimize your stress, you can have an easier moment of peace each day. It may come in the form of deep breaths. It may be a moment during your morning coffee. Being laid back has its advantages. But you may not be able to get as much stuff done as you want, as being ambitious may not be in the cards for you.
You aren’t stressed and you don’t need to create wild scenarios in your head to run your life. Those are the hallmarks of a non-laidback person. If you have a friend that is laidback and you aren’t, you may not understand how they can work the way that they do. Don’t be afraid if you aren’t laidback. Just try and take a cue from someone who is. But just how laidback are you? Take this quiz to find out.
Being laidback means that you don't take things too seriously. Not much fazes you and you're able to stay calm in the face of danger or stress. If you're laidback, you're probably an easygoing person who also goes along with the plan. If you aren't laidback, your friends probably know it. They can feel when a person is stressed and when they might not have control of the situation. A laid-back person doesn't need control. They can create a state of mind that's peaceful and that won't break under pressure.
There's no point in staying up worrying about life. Take a break and figure out if you want to sweat the small stuff or not. Would you rather spend your days in an easy going fashion? Or do you want to just swelter under the stress? Realize that you can't control everything life. Don't let stress creep up on you. If you do that, you'll be more laidback.
