Use support systems, when needed. It is not a positive quality to "go it alone". Create one if you don’t have one.
Spend time with other people. We are social beings and social activities will boost your mood.
Eat with company, if possible. Positive family or friend connections are very calming and even soothing.
Engage in pleasant activities weekly; join a group (visit your local library for ideas); engage in a hobby. These will get your creative passionate juices flowing.
Learn to say no and say yes to yourself more often. A happy you is a happy environment.
Be a problem-solver; brain-storm and find alternative solutions to a real problem. Select an alternative, try it and then evaluate it.
Use self-soothing calming self-talk. Talk to yourself when you are distressed in the same manner you would talk to friends to calm them down when they are distressed.
All of these mindful strategies will help you become grounded physically and mentally. Most of us will do well in one area and fall behind in others. Consider completing a new activity in each of the above categories and try to integrate it in your daily routine. Learning something new will bring a positive shift.
We are not held back but the love we did not receive in the past, but the love we are not extending in the present. -Marianne Williamson
