When the outlook seems bleak and you’re feeling down, it can be hard to envision a happy ending and you’re probably having a tough time picking yourself up again. When this happens, keep these tips in mind.
Your thoughts are more powerful than you think
When you indulge negative thoughts, you keep yourself negative. Try to catch yourself, and question the thought—actually ask yourself, “Is this really true?” Most of the time, it isn’t. Keep your mind open to new ways of thinking about things, train your mind to be more positive.
Put your fears and disappointments into perspective
We all experience disappointments, it is how we deal with them that is important. Don’t dwell on the past. Look at what the disappointment has taught you—what have you learned so that next time when you face a similar situation, you may behave differently. Also, be sure to endorse yourself for being willing to face your fears and a step out in a new direction. It may not have produced the result you wanted, but you did it, instead of staying stuck.
Don’t let criticism get you down
When you work hard, you don’t like to hear people voicing negative comments about what you did, especially when nothing they are saying is helpful. Don’t let their words get to you. People who find fault usually don’t feel very good about themselves, and it is easier to pick on you to avoid dealing with their own life.
Give yourself some TLC
Be kind to yourself. You deserve it, even if you don’t feel that way right now. Take a walk in nature, read a good book, prepare a delicious meal–any little thing that you enjoy. These little ways of pampering yourself can make a difference.
