How to Go Through Life Simply Unbothered

It’s easy to get sucked into bothersome things, from people driving like jerks to co-workers who know how to get under your skin. But what if you stopped caring? It’s easier said than done, but becoming bothered by these things can affect your emotional and mental health. Keep reading to learn some tips for going through life simply unbothered.

What Does It Mean to Be Unbothered?

Being unbothered does not mean you don’t care or aren’t compassionate. It means you no longer worry, get agitated, or concern yourself with things you can’t control, such as petty drama and dealing with difficult or annoying people.

How to Master the Art of Being Unbothered

These are not quick fixes, but the sooner you apply these techniques, the better.

Prioritize Yourself

Prioritizing yourself is not selfish; it just means doing what’s best for you. A great way to ensure you’re sticking to this is by asking yourself if you’re doing something because you want to or someone else wants you to. Learning to prioritize yourself is the first step to becoming unbothered.

Become Aware of Your Triggers (and How You React to Them)

Knowing what topics or events make you feel unsettled – like when someone is rude or lacking major details about an upcoming event – can help you develop coping skills. In most situations, you can only control how you respond. Sometimes, saying nothing is the best reaction. And beware of falling into the trap of comparing yourself to others!

No More People-Pleasing

Why? Because it doesn’t exist. There is no way to please everyone, so stop trying! Instead, surround yourself with people who love, respect, and support you for being you.

Ditch the Toxic Relationships

Toxic people steal joy from your life. You should never risk your well-being for this type of person.

Practice Your Pause

Before reacting to a triggering situation, pause. This will stop you from saying or doing something you could regret later. Pausing allows you to develop a generic response or the freedom to say nothing.

Learn to Nicely Say “Mind Your Business”

If someone is a little too curious about your beliefs or personal life, find a polite way to tell them to mind their own business and go on with your day.
