With so much disconcerting news lately, it can feel impossible to get away from it all. And, it’s oh, so easy, to get sucked in and pulled down along with it. When I get dragged into the unrelenting muck it often triggers a jumble of feelings — ranging from irritability and anger to sadness, and fear. If I allow it, it can be truly paralyzing!
When I’m triggered with unwanted feelings, it’s hard to get anything done — especially anything creative. Fortunately, I’ve tried and tested a number of very effective techniques that help me feel better — quickly.
I’ve always been all about feeling good. I thrive on feeling good and I thrive on finding ways to feel good when I don’t. And, I’m passionate about helping my clients feel great!
For me, feeling good is absolutely crucial in order to do the work I do.
Here are some of my all-time favorite mood-boosting techniques. Remember — the subconscious mind, and the body, need to be continually nourished with positive input in order for you to feel your best.
Use Affirmations – Write down 3-5 feel-good affirmations that you can say to yourself throughout the day. For example: “I am successful.” “I love the work I do.” “I feel energetic and alive.” Repeat these affirmations often. Repetition will help imprint the affirmations into your subconscious, helping them become automatic beliefs.
Acknowledge Yourself — Create a list of 25-50 of your accomplishments and personal qualities that you feel good about. Keep this list handy. Refer to it on a regular basis, to remind yourself of all of the good within you.
Do Something Nice – Surprise someone with a kind gesture or gift. Send a thank you note to a friend, client, colleague, or family member. Offer to do something challenging for someone. Volunteer your services. Delight in the pleasure of helping someone else feel good.
Dance to a happy song – Create a playlist of happy songs. Take a break and dance (and/or sing) to one or all of them. Keep them handy for regular use.
Read Uplifting News – Some good sites include: https://www.goodnewsnetwork.org/, http://www.dailygood.org/, and https://www.positive.news/
Read Uplifting Quotes – There are a number of websites that specialize in a variety of quotes. Search for uplifting, positive, inspiring quotes. Keep a list of your favorites. Post them where you will see them.
Write a Gratitude List – Write a gratitude list, daily. As you write your list, tap into the feeling of gratitude. Gratitude is a very uplifting feeling, and will help you lift your spirits, and raise your vibration.
Meditate – My indispensable go-to. Meditation works. The act of sitting in stillness helps to clear and center the mind. Starting the day with meditation helps to keep the day centered, no matter what’s going on.
Nourish Your Body — A nourishing diet is absolutely crucial for optimal energy and mood. For best results, eat plenty of alkalizing green vegetables, colorful fruits and veggies, good fats, fiber-rich whole grains, lean proteins, and probiotics. Drink plenty of water, and minimize caffeine and alcohol.
Move Your Body — Moving your body will help you release built up tension. Do some quick yoga. Take a Nature walk. Get up and stretch. Dance. Go to the gym. Work out to a video. Enjoy!
