It’s easy to find ourselves run down after the stress of the Festive period. Sometimes you can feel demotivated or even lonely if you have been through a tough time.
There are many methods to use to help bring back positivity to your life and feel more motivated:
- There are many books out there which you can read to educate you on positivity and mental wellbeing. Certain books such as ‘The Secret’ by Rhonda Byrne and ‘Ask and It Is Given’ by Esther and Jerry Hicks, are both great books read by many athletes and businessmen and women. The books are about the Law of Attraction which is a theory which states that positive thoughts attract positive things.
- Yoga: Yoga is said to be a great thing when it comes to focus. It can also be used as a form of meditation. The focus on deep breathing and certain movements takes your mind off of problems and allows you to have a clear mind.
- Take a break. It’s easy to get in the habit of feeling like you constantly need to be busy. Why not just have a chill day. Perhaps go for a walk somewhere nice, go for a massage or spa day or if not, why not just have a day indoors watching a movie with your favorite food or snacks.
- Set yourself tasks each day that you know will make a positive difference to either your life or someone else’s life. These can be simple things such as helping someone, perhaps even helping a stranger. Call a friend or family member and ask how they are. A great way to be more positive is to promise yourself when you wake up that you are going to be positive. Get in the habit of when someone asks how your day is going, reply back with something positive. This will make a great difference to your energy and wellbeing.
These are just a few ideas on things you can do. Everyone will have their own preference on what makes them happy. It is trial and error. Some things will work for some but maybe not for others. Once you find what makes you happy and what makes a difference to your life for the better, stick to it, as long as it is not harmful to yourself or others.
