Anyone else feel like it’s been an emotional roller coaster these past few months?? I’ve certainly had my fair share of emotional ups and downs. I wanted to share what patterns I’ve found that have helped me stay in a more positive emotional state.
Make YOU a priority. I know you’ve heard this before but this is so essential right now with all the different stresses life is throwing at us. We need to decrease our own internal stress levels so we can better handle what’s going on in our life. What does this look like?
Exercise… schedule it into your week or else it gets skipped!
Get adequate sleep… have a bedtime and stick to it.
Body work such as massage therapy, chiropractic care, acupuncture. I know many people feel it’s selfish to spend the time and money on this type of self-case but we need to flip that mindset so we realize it’s actually selfFULL. When we take care of ourselves, we are better versions of ourselves for the people we love most.
Get outside. Despite all the craziness in the world right now, nature hasn’t changed. Put away your phone and get outside for a walk, a hike, sit outside and read, etc. Make it a priority to be outside everyday… even if it’s only for 10-15 minutes. There are so many healing benefits of simply being outside!
Find your tribe. This is even more important now more than ever. Relationships take time and effort but oh is it worth it! Even if it’s simply a short text to say hello, those things matter and can change the direction of someone’s day. Also, ask for help and give help. Asking for help can be hard… I get it. We all need to put away our super woman cape every once in a while and realize we can’t do it all. When we give the opportunity to someone to help us, it can oftentimes provide them with joy and purpose as well as make it easier for them to ask you for help down the road.
Let’s head into the last few months of 2020 with a positive light. Be grateful for the good things, even if they are small. Because let’s be honest, it’s all the small, everyday things that make our lives a joy.
