A happy life starts with a happy mind
So here are some tips, as I share this look of the week on how I maintain a happy mind
Let me start by saying, I have challenges and struggles just like everybody else
Life throws so many lemons at you and sometimes you just don’t feel like making a freaking lemonade!
But it’s important to keep in mind that no matter how we react to our challenges, it’s our ACTION that will give us the end result we so desire
Worrying, stressing, yelling, crying, or depressing over ANYTHING is really only going to make matters worse
So anytime I am stressing, I try to first vent it out with someone that genuinely cares about me
Vent it out, BE OPEN about your problems
Once we say things out loud and they are no longer just in our heads, the problem tends to seem smaller
Talk it out with a friend, family member or someone you trust
That’s what having a support system is for! And it’s crucial for sanity. TRUST ME.
Step number II: FIND YOUR ZEN
If you are overwhelmed or filled with anxiety. You need to find your zen!
For some, like myself, it’s the gym! I work out 10x harder when I’m stressed out
The gym becomes my temple. It’s a place I can leave all my anger inside and walk out feeling renewed
For others, it can be yoga, daily meditation, a walk in the park, reading a book…
What’s your zen?
Step III: Fuel your soul
This is an important one. Most people don’t stop to find their zen (step II).
Therefore, they are not in tune with their soul
When I say “soul,” I mean your inner-self.
We have all jobs. Some that we love, some that we don’t love.
And because of that, it’s important to find time during the week to dedicate to something that makes you soul smile
Mine is blogging, being one with nature. Giving back in some sort of way.
I notice anytime I’m outdoors near nature, I feel re-energized.
I get the same feeling when I give back or make a difference in someone’s life.
Find what fuels your soul.
And lastly, find something to be grateful for everyday.
We may think this is an easy one or we think about it at least once a day, therefore, we are grateful
I used to think the same way but it’s not the same
Dedicate time, whether in the morning before you have breakfast or at night before you sleep
And say your prayers or thank God (the Universe), whoever you believe, for the things you are grateful for
It’s life changing.
These are some of the steps I take to have a happy mind, so that I can therefore, live a happy life.
I hope you enjoyed it!
