This article will introduce you to general tips that can help you make lasting change, face certain health issues and fears and increase the level of enjoyment in your life:
Find a support network: This can include sober friends, friends who share your interests, friends who are living in a manner that you wish yourself to live, support groups, helping professionals, healing professionals, or family members. Having a support network can help you make the changes you desire to keep and make into normal habits; it can create a sense of belonging as well.
Stay positive: To stay positive, you have to first choose to be positive. If you struggle with negative thoughts, which then become your words, change your thinking. Be positive in the words you speak to yourself and others, and then your experience and reality will start to change to become more positive. Be impeccable with your words; your unconscious mind is always listening to everything you think and say. Changing the mental landscape will change the outer landscape. This is a fact.
Lend a helping hand: Volunteering can give you a sense of purpose, allow you to make a difference, socialize and make new friends. If you’re in recovery from an addiction (such as alcoholism or other substances), attending an AA or AL-ANON meeting with the purpose of helping others struggling with alcohol can also be rewarding.
Get help when you need it: If you’re struggling with a weight, mental health, general health or substance use issue, don’t be afraid to seek or ask for help. In other words, give yourself permission and take the first step to allow for help to manifest in your life. Ask for help then accept help and love, this is the universe’s, or god’s, way of giving you love and aid. There are thousands of resources available all over the country to help you with whatever you’re struggling with.
Catch some Zzz’s: Getting enough sleep every night is important for your mind and your body. Some benefits include improved memory, reduced fatigue, sharpened attention, healthy weight and reduced stress. When you don’t sleep well, your mood will be affected, your level of energy will be compromised and life might seem more difficult. Stay mindful and if you did not sleep well do not make important decisions and take it easy that day until you manage to go back to bed.
Join a hobby group: Whether you like sports, art or something else, there’s a group for you. Check out Meetup.com to find activities that interest you. There are thousands of groups all over the country centered around different hobbies, ranging from sports to writing to painting. By attending a group, you can make friends while doing something you enjoy. Tip: If you cant find a group near-by, start one of your own! Don’t have the $ (it is affordable) then find an existing group ask them if they would allow you to create events within their account. They also can allow you to use 1 of the 3 allowed groups per account (i.e. you can create your own group and be the admin without having to pay for it yourself). Then enjoy socializing and engaging in activities. If you crave something, chances are others also feel the same. You can be the one to capitalize on this need and set something for others to enjoy.
The problem is the solution: As absurd as this may sound, consider this idea.. If you are fatigued, find a physical activity or a social activity to engage in.
The way is through: If you hate or fear winter, find a reason to go outside in winter, dress well, be prepared and safe and experience winter. If you are afraid of being alone allow yourself to truly be alone and sit with yourself.. by facing these fears, they immediately lose their power over you.
Nature is medicine! Nature offers humans free healing and free therapy. Try nature therapy, forest therapy.. First decide on what you like, next go find it: A forest, a golf course, a beach, a trail, a mountain, a blue sky, or sun light… all of these are freely available. Set the intention to go out and be in nature. Allow this ancient healing presence to help you as it has helped billions of humans before us. Also, eat healthy natural foods, herbs, berries, bitters, fruit and spices.. These are full of healing chemical compounds and healing energy that can help balance your mind and body!
Sunlight (in moderation) alone will regulate your circadian rhythm, increase your level of energy, heal your skin, cause the creation of vitamin D, improve your eye sight and more.
Stretch! Watch a cat stretch, and emulate. Stretch and then stretch some more. Or try Dynamic Body Balancing. Unwinding and dissipate any excess energy, allow your lymphatic system to get refreshed, allow your energy channels to open.. You’ll feel better, relaxed and also detox any energies or physical toxins that you are better off getting rid of!
