“We are stronger than we think. We have emotional, spiritual and even physical resources at our disposal. We may get knocked down, but we don’t have to stay down.” Said Steve Goodier
Now here are 9 ways to get you through rough days!
1.Wake up an Optimist:
We all have rough days, but looking at the bright side increases your ability to experience happiness in your day-to-day life while helping you cope more effectively with stress.
2.H for Hope:
Having hope allows you to see the light at the end of the tunnel, helping you push through dark and challenging times.
3. Accept Yourself:
No one is perfect, but you have to accept yourself, flaws and all! Seek out and embrace the positive traits of yourself and your life. Avoid measuring your own worth by comparing yourself to those around you.
4. Stay Connected:
Having loving and supportive relationships help you feel connected and accepted, and promote a more positive mood.
5. Express Gratitude:
People who are thankful for what they have are better able to cope with stress, have more positive emotions, and are better able to reach their goals.
6. Find Your Purpose and Meaning:
When you have a purpose or a goal that you’re striving for, your life will take on a new meaning that supports your mental wellbeing. If you’re not sure what your purpose is, explore your natural talents and interests to help you find it.
7. Master Your Environment:
When you have mastery over your environment, this means you’ve learned how to best modify your unique circumstances for the most emotional balance, which leads to feelings of pride and success. This entails using skills such as time management and prioritization along with believing in your ability to handle whatever life throws your way.
8. Exercise Regularly:
Rather than viewing exercise as a medical tool to lose weight, prevent disease, and live longer (all benefits that occur in the future) try viewing exercise as a daily tool to immediately enhance your frame of mind, reduce stress and feel happier.
9. Practice Mindfulness:
Practicing “Mindfulness” means that you’re actively paying attention to the moment you’re in right now, rather than letting your mind wander. When you’re mindful you’re living in the moment and letting distracting or negative thoughts pass through your mind without getting caught up in their emotional implications.
