In continuation to my previous post, feeding the good wolf (focusing on the positive things) is extremely important, here are a few ways you can do so:
1. Be Kind to Yourself –
Recognize your emotions, instead of hiding them.
2. Open up to a trusted friend
or family member or write down your negative thoughts on a piece of paper.
3. Smile More –
When you smile, your brain releases tiny molecules to help fight off stress. These chemicals act as a mild pain reliever and help to reduce your anxiety and stress in minute. I too believe in the concept of “faking it till you make it”
4. Practice Gratitude –
Be grateful for the food you eat, the medication you’re receiving, your family or any small thing that contributed to make your life better. It makes you feel lucky for what you have and forget what you don’t have or desire.
5. Live in the Moment –
Just think about ‘today’, thinking about what will happen in future will not only make you stressed but also spoil your present. Live in the moment and let god handle the rest.
