If you’re having a bad day, don’t go try to ruin somebody else’s too. And if somebody tries to ruin yours, realize it’s about them and not about you and move on. Don’t dwell on it or spend too much time thinking about it, no matter how agitated you feel. If it’s someone you care about, let them know that you’ll be happy to talk to them after they’ve taken a nap and have a full belly.
Live in the present moment. If upsetting memories from the past creep into your mind say well hello honey, I see you but it’s time for you to go now. Each time you do this and get your mind back on track to the present moment, you are training your mind that the present moment is what is important and that you will not let your past continue to haunt you and affect your life. You may have to do this more than a few times but eventually, your mind will start understanding who is the boss. Be your mind’s master, not its pawn.
Mind your own business. Stop yourself from being judgmental of others and stop caring what people think about you too. If you feel judged by others, don’t let that stop you from living your life to the fullest. You came here to live your life they way you want, not the way others think you should. Some people around you may seem to have made or be making some bad life choices or fashion choices or relationship choices or whatever it is. Well, maybe they only had bad choices to choose from so they chose the best one out of the bunch. If those bad choices are affecting you personally in a negative way, make plans to get far away from them or limit contact as much as possible with them. If it’s someone you care about, offer what help you can but without putting their needs above your own. Help can be in the simple form of creating some great, non judgmental listening space for them to vent and talk about their situation. Hugs are a great help too!
Take care of yourself. Self care is important for our health and mood but do we all actually do it on a daily basis? The most basic self care is drinking enough water, getting enough sleep and providing enough oxygen to your body. Be sure to drink a few glasses of water a day. No, sodas don’t count. If you don’t like plain water, add some lemon or orange juice to it. No, coffee and tea don’t count as drinking water either. W-A-T-E-R. As for breathing, if you feel yourself getting frazzled in your day, slow down and take some deep breaths. It’s really that simple. A few deep breaths can help clear your mind and calm your nerves. The type of breathing we do to just stay alive isn’t enough in this stressful world so it’s important to do some mindful breathing every day. In through the nose, out through the mouth. Get yourself enough sleep at night and remember that some sneaky naps are great too! Sleeping is essential because it provides a time for the body and mind to renew themselves.
