Don’t Live In The Fear Of Getting Hurt. For this, I’m specifically talking about emotional harm. If you’ve enjoyed a really bad broken heart in the past, you could be living in fear to make the leap into a new relationship – but don’t. You can and really should move on, it’s about walking through the right steps to successfully do it at your own pace. Simply because you’ve been hurt before doesn’t mean you’ll get hurt again. Don’t let that one bad relationship determine your future.
When I’m a little old lady in my 90s, I really hope to look back in my life and feel like I created a difference, even if only in a small way. If you feel the same, let’s talk paying it forward. You do something nice for somebody, and then they pass it on by doing something kind for an additional person, and so forth. If you’ve heard the notion that generosity is contagious, you didn’t mishear, it’s true according to a report by Jenny Laure Gachelin.
The research learned that by receiving help, a person is very likely to be more generous to your stranger in the future. In an article within the Ny Times, the authors of the study wrote, “We concluded that observing an action of kindness is likely to play an important role in setting a cascade of generosity in motion, since many people can potentially observe a single act of helping. But we found that it was receiving help that sustained the cascade as it spread with the group.” Whether you’re a runner and decide to coach a buddy who’s training for a 5K, or donate your time to a local food bank doesn’t matter. Simply do something nice. You won’t regret it.
This one speaks by itself. If you’re spending all of your time looking at your phone, consider about how much you’re missing right in front of you. In the event you haven’t seen this video by activist and rapper Prince Ea on why he refuses to let technology control him, you can examine it out. The opening line is enough to pull you in immediately: “Did you understand the typical person spends 4 years of his life looking down at his cellular phone?”
Oh, the length of time I’ve wasted in your life being jealous of others – from jobs, to homes, to successful love lives – and where did all of that energy get me? Precisely nowhere. Nowadays, I try not let jealous thoughts even enter my brain. To eliminate jealously, Debbie Mandel, MA, author of Activate Your Inner Light: Fitness for Body, Mind and Soul, suggested to WebMD that we should know about our very own strengths, resist comparing ourselves to others, and use those feelings to instead encourage us to develop and accomplish things for ourselves.
OK, I mentioned earlier what I would like to be thinking about my entire life as a little old lady, but have you thought about you? In terms of work, specifically, do you wish to look back and say, “I spent most of my time in the office?” If that’s your thing, then can you. However, if you’re someone who hopes to balance work with personal life, let’s get you started on that pathway now. Your family and friends is going to be really happy that you’re causing them to be a high priority, too. I wrote a complete separate article with mvwwem on achieving a much better work/life balance – you should check it all out here.
Using a balance between the time you would spend at the office and at home is significant as we simply discussed, but don’t allow that to pendulum swing the complete opposite way, either. By knocking “lazy” out of your vocabulary and instead opting to go above and beyond at the job, you might see many benefits. Those benefits could include promotions and raises, based on LinkedIn.
There truly is power in positive thinking, and i also can personally attest to that. I’ve been on the dark side before, and the right way of thinking made a huge difference to get me returning to light. And science agrees with me. According to the Mayo Clinic, research has revealed advantages of positive thinking include increased lifespan, lower rates of depression and lower amounts of distress, and coping skills, amongst others.
How can you do it? Based on her article on PsychCentral.com, Jane Framingham, Ph.D. said when things seem to go wrong, stop your thoughts there and try not to let it give into despair. Turn your thoughts to the bigger picture, instead, and focus on the great things that are happening away from the smaller hiccups, like big successes and things you’re grateful for. There are numerous books on the store shelves to guide you, too.
Get enough sleep, eat well, exercise regularly – attempt to do everything you’ve always been told are perfect for your body, as they are. Based on Heathline.com, having healthy habits will benefit us in lots of ways, including improving our mood, boosting our levels of energy, and combating potential diseases.
