We all have such days, when we are a little sad and depressed, and the bed seems more inviting than the desk. It might happen when you are not happy with the outcomes from your business or a relationship. This post is about how to get back up when you are having such a day. And believe me, you can. We all can.
I believe all such illusions of a sad day are created by the mind when it gets in the scarcity complex, which says that there is not enough money, love, or something else for everyone on this planet. A scarcity complex implies that life is a game of compromises and if someone wins, then someone else has to loose.
The opposite of scarcity is abundance. And I believe the easiest way to get back up after a bad day is to realize that there is in fact an abundance of everything on this planet. Losing money doesn’t mean you can’t win it again, losing a loved one doesn’t mean you will never be loved again, and so on. Seeing in our minds that there is enough in this world for everyone creates an opening for all negative emotions to slip away and make way for all good that is waiting for us. Here are 5 simple ways you can bounce back -
1. Make a list, and mark items off it
It is always a good feeling to mark items off your list. So make a list of getting things done, and write even the smallest of tasks, like making that phone call or creating a plan. If a task is too big, break it into small items. Then take the first steps of these actions and tick them off the list. One by one.
Don’t sit on your couch or lie in the bed. Instead, go out and take a walk, jog and burn some sweat. Exercise is the best way to releasing chemicals (or hormones) that naturally make you feel better. You deserve to be happy, and not sad. Recognize your self-worth, and acknowledge yourself for it. Don’t worry, as worry blocks all the good waiting to come. Let go of the worry and open the gates to what the world is waiting to give you right now.
3. Rejuvenate, Refresh
Take a break. If you have been working or stressed out lately, take a break. Take a day off to just relax. Drive off to a place amid nature, and relax. Play some sport, or read that book you always wanted to read. Just shut the whole world of stress out for one day. And believe me, no hell will break loose. The world will be just fine with you having a good chilled out day.
Don’t find reasons to smile and laugh. Just laugh. And keep on laughing regularly. And make others laugh. People never forget those who make them laugh. Laughing is the best way to add value to others. By laughing you will not only solve your problems, but of others too. And never forget to give yourself a pat on the back for that. You laughed, because it was your choice. And it always will be.
5. Trust and Give
Share your ideas for free. Trust people instinctively. Rather than fear the worst case scenario, trust that the best case will turn out to be true. Give with the trust that you will get manifold of what you give. Give not only money, but your energy, time, smile, gratitude and sincere love to others around you.
