I’ve been having a hard time recently. I have been receiving a lot of advice from a few different people. It’s got me thinking: What I should be doing with my life. Where I should live. What career path I should take. What will make me happy the most.
I like options. Options make me happy. I like options just as much as I like pros and cons lists. And I like pros and cons lists A LOT.
You constantly focus on ‘what you haven’t done’ rather than focus on ‘what you have done’ was basically what someone said to me recently And, it’s true. I dismiss anything good that I do and I just focus on the negative.
If I have a list of 10 things to get done by the end of the day and I only manage to complete 6 or 7 of them. I will go to bed in a bad mood because I feel that I didn’t work hard enough.
This morning somebody told me something that really got me thinking. She told me to write yourself a todo list that you would be okay with giving to someone else.
And that is what I need to practice.
I also started a yoga challenge! I’ve done yoga in the past, so I’m looking forward to getting back into it. Today marks day 1! I always find that yoga and exercise lift my mood. It also tends to make me a lot less anxious and down too.
I also managed to squeeze in a sit-ups and squats routine today too.
I can feel that this is going to be a great week!
When you’re feeling low, what do you do to keep yourself positive?
