Everything is coming to us at once - work targets, family commitments, social engagements, and it can be exhausting to balance it all. The effort itself can drain you out mentally and physically. So before we end this year, make yourself a promise to bring back the lost positivity in your life with simple habits that go a long way in restoring your sense of being and mental peace. Start practising these and you’ll see the tremendous difference in the way you think, and lead your life.
A good night’s sleep leads to happiness. Getting a complete 8 hour circle of shut-eye can give your mind enough time to feel refreshed before you get on with your day. Truly, it is one of the easiest ways to bring a positive change in your life.
Exercise every day, by taking up a sport or by simply taking for a brisk walk, and pump up your body with a daily dose of endorphins. Trust us, you’ll feel happier throughout the day and the physical activity will give you sound sleep at night as well.
A simple thank you at the end of each day, for being healthy and alive, can change your outlook on life. When you are grateful for the little things, you attract better, bigger and even more wonderful things into your life.
Our minds are just like magnets, so we naturally tend to attract all the things that we think about during the day. So, feed your mind with affirmations and create the positive echoes in your life. Breathe in, breathe out, meditate into zen mode and flush your mind with happy thoughts. Changing your thoughts is all it takes to change your world.
Try not to use your phone for one hour each day and reduce your usage time of apps like Facebook, Instagram and Snapchat. Excessive social media usage has been linked to social media depression and is the cause of many other psychological issues. Be around real people, have a one-on-one conversation and devote some me-time for your mental health.
When you work on putting in an actual effort to do the things that give you mental peace, you’ll find yourself slowly moving towards a more peaceful and happier state of mind. Sometimes, it is the little things like reading an interesting book, having a stimulating conversation or catching up with an old friend that make a big difference in our lives.
De-cluttering your surroundings and your mind is the way to peace of mind and shutting out anxiety. You’ll be surprised to see the positive impact it has on your mood. Moreover, it helps to bring clarity in your life.
