With the world in chaos these days, you cannot help but absorb all the negativity around you. Wanting to stay positive can be difficult when you feel like you have no control over external things. Hence, the best thing you can do is work on the little things you can control — habits.
Here are three simple things you can turn into habits that can help you regain control of your mindset:
Most days, we breathe on autopilot. It is something we do unconsciously and involuntarily. However, observing mindful deep breathing have several benefits to the mind and body:
Although having a cheerful attitude is generally beneficial, bad things can happen to everyone. While aiming for a happier and healthier mindset, embracing the bad and the sad is also crucial in maintaining balance in your life.
If you don’t feel like getting ready, allow yourself to do your way without feeling guilty. You are not obliged to keep up with the expectations and standards of society.
Pretending to be joyful and functional even when you are not stable is unhealthy. Recognizing your feelings of unhappiness will allow you to process and address your emotions. Doing so will save you from bottling up the pain and possibly breaking down in the future.
Simply being appreciative can improve your mood and provide other advantages. A recent study discovered that practicing gratitude can significantly enhance sentiments of hope and pleasure.
Dedicating a little time each day to express gratitude can boost your mood. Expressing gratitude can be as simple as thinking about what you are thankful for in life while brushing your teeth. It can also be as easy as stepping outside for a bit as you appreciate the blue skies and listen to the birds chirping early in the morning.
Keep an eye out for nice things in your life as you go about your day. They can be significant events or anything mundane. BKM/ Expat Media
