I'm sure all of you have developed remedies overtime to help restore your energy flow and stay balance, but I just wanted to share our favorite ones that help keep us in line.
Saying this out loud may sound unrealistic but when was the last time you enjoyed an event not through your phone. I don't expect anybody to go cold turkey but if you commit an hour everyday you can steadily work your way up to 2 or 3 hours a day.
I like social media as much as the next person but the self loath that comes along with it isn't worth it. Plus human to human interaction is a better way to communicate and build strong relationships.
CLEANING out your space
Take a moment and identify what isn't working for you in your space and put some consciousness into what you can eliminate or add to create positive atmosphere. Don't keep storing something you shouldn't miss or haven't missed.
Two things you ought to consider is decluttering and thinking about the purpose of your room. Fear warning, finding the exact purpose of your room or space can be unclear at first, but I just concentrate on the things I want to get out of my room. If you declutter successfully you will feel more refreshed, uplifted and have more storage space.
Negativity can stem from various things like social conditioning or insecurities. The key is to work on decreasing the negative vibes, even if it means getting rid of friends. Be honest with yourself. If you are trying to find a sense of balance holding onto toxic relationships won't be much help.
Alternatively, you can try to find the good in everything. Personally, this is a gray area for me but if you make an effort you'll see a negative event can have a positive impact in some shape or form.
Being physically active can help you improve your body confidence, which will do wonders for your overall confidence. Additionally, exercise is also a great way to de-stress. It releases a happy hormone, called serotonin, to brighten your mood. And when paired with a nutritious diet, you'll have not only good health but, have even more confidence than you did before.
The longest I've went without exercising and eating healthy was a month, never again. Not only was my energy low, but I experienced frequent mood swings. Smh. All the high sugar foods and caffeinated drinks I was indulging fluctuated my mood and made me irritable and anxious. If you are experiencing these symptoms try to put more thought into what you eat and physical activities.
For the sake of this post I would encourage you to read an inspiring or self help book like Don Miguel Ruiz's book, The Four Agreements. A life changing book that offers the simple idea of four life agreements, stemmed from the ancient Toltec wisdom of the native people of Southern Mexico.
Ruiz's Four Agreements provides you the perfect code for life. It helps you work on personal development, behavior, communication and relationships. Plus it's a short read.
