Seek Advice From Trusted Ones
One thing you need to remember when dealing with difficult situations is that you’re never alone. You weren’t the first person to go through this, not the only person, and definitely not the last. This is why having a supportive and loving community around you is so important—we are after all social creatures.
Talk to the people you trust in giving advice, especially if that person has gone through a similar situation and emerged victorious. Being able to express your thoughts and feelings and have an advice reciprocated can be comforting for your soul.
Get Moving To Relax
The word ‘exercising’ or ‘workout’ might sound like a chore to do when you’re not feeling the chirpiest, and that’s why we choose to use the term ‘get moving’. Your body needs to move to release those negative energy and toxins from your body, and induce the happy hormones like endorphins and serotonin. It’s not about going for long, intense workouts, but rather the simple act of just moving your body.
You can do this from the comfort of your own room, simply turn on your favorite music and dance like nobody’s watching. You’d be surprised how much calmer you’d be once those happy hormones kick in.
Switch Up Your Patterns
We are all vibrant and dynamic beings, and our lives should be as well. Having a tedious routine, following the same solutions when dealing with problems, is not going to work each time. Take your time to reflect daily, on how you deal with issues, and find different solutions. It will definitely lead you to a different, and usually a better outcome.
Make Yourself Happy To De-compress
When times are tough, you need to focus on yourself. You are a wonderful being, and you should celebrate yourself. The best way to do so is to indulge in some self-care, whatever this may mean to each person. Do your favorite hobbies or take up new ones, go out and meet your loved ones, give yourself a spa day, or even as simple as letting yourself relax at home.
There’s only one you, and you’ve only got yourself, so it’s important to always show yourself some love and make you happy first.
Appreciate The Little Things
It’s all about the gratitude attitude. Our reality is whatever our mind sees it to be, and you can alter your reality and the emotions accordingly. Everyone goes through ups and down, but if you choose to focus on the happy things, your mind will help you realize how incredibly great your life is. Gratitude is so simple, and comes down to the little things; being grateful for our health, having a roof over our head, food on the table, and etc.
Times are always ever-changing, and with the good times comes the bad times as well. It’s important to always practice these mindfulness tips not only during the tough times, but during the good times as well. It forms a habit that helps you gear up through tough times more seamlessly. The Gym Wear Movement community is committed to sharing the love, compassion and positive energy to everyone in good times and bad times.
