Do you sometimes feel like you can’t cope with all the issues in your life? Do you typically feel low when things don’t seem to be going your way? If so, it doesn’t have to be this way! You can break through those negative feelings and thoughts.
Try these tips to strengthen your emotional wellness and bring more peace to your life:

1. Know the signs of depression. You don’t need to be worried about your mental health to do some research and be able to recognize the signs of possible depression. In all likelihood, you’re simply battling some low points. If your symptoms do point toward depression, take action to seek help. Some things to consider:
* What do statistics say about people with depression?
* What are the major factors contributing to depression?
* Do you have traits that make you prone to anxiety or depression?
* How can you tell if you’re spiraling downward?

2. Have a strong support base. A huge part of achieving and maintaining mental wellness is having a network of family and friends. Life’s challenges can really take a toll on you, but you’ll be better able to cope and overcome if you have supportive people around you.
* Spend a lot of quality time with family members and friends doing things you all enjoy.
* Instead of internalizing unpleasant feelings or thoughts, talk with your support network about them.

3. Stay positive. Working to maintain a positive outlook is significant in helping you to achieve and sustain mental wellness. Being optimistic isn’t an overnight accomplishment if you’re accustomed to feeling down in the dumps. But little by little, you’ll be able to build the emotional strength to stay positive much of the time.
* Talk to people around you who have been able to turn negative occurrences into positive learning experiences.
* Connect with your spiritual side and find your strengths.
* Spend some time each day meditating and re-centering. This will help you create mental stability and resilience.

4. Keep an active mind. When your mind is active, there’s very little room to entertain negative, depressing thoughts. An active mind that’s engrossed with healthy thoughts and processes will likely stay well, even in some of life’s toughest times.
* Get involved with a charitable organization and focus your energies on giving hope and help to the less fortunate.
* Take up a sport or hobby that engages you both mentally and physically. The sense of achievement as you learn and perfect the activity will help you to develop mental wellness.

With the myriad of concerns that can present themselves in our fast-paced lives, mental and emotional balance isn’t always easy to achieve. However, with positive effort and focus, you can cultivate resilience.
The steps above are just a beginning. As you go forth on your journey toward happiness and wholeness, you’ll find even more techniques that work for you. Embrace your challenges as opportunities to grow, and you’ll be rewarded beyond your wildest dreams.

How to Avoid Being a Self-Esteem Vampire Victim

How to Avoid Being a Self-Esteem Vampire Victim

Who is a self-esteem vampire ?self-esteem vampire

I know that vampires are all the rage with the young people at present, but did you know that vampires actually exist?  You’ve seen them, I know you have; everyone has.  Forget the fangs and the capes though, these are self-esteem vampires and seem to thrive on causing those around them to take a hit on their self-worth; something they achieve by making comments calculated to make the person they are speaking too feel bad about themselves.

From something as simple as “I don’t know, blue really isn’t your color” to “I was sure that you understood what I was talking about but I guess I must have been wrong;” self-esteem vampires have a myriad of different ways to undermine your self-confidence and make you question your self-worth. The most insidious of these are the ones who have honed their ability to a fine art and can deliver an insult in such a way that you don’t even realize it until minutes or even hours later.

So how can you keep from being a victim of these self-esteem vampires?  Is there a psychological equivalent to hanging garlic around your neck or carrying a silver cross?  Luckily for you there are a number of methods to eliminate the power that these creatures have over your feelings of self-worth.

Methods for Dealing with Self-Esteem Vampires

Identify the Vampires.  Once you have run into a self-esteem vampire, make a note of the person.  Being aware of what a person is and what they are capable of helps you to be prepared when having to deal with them again.  While avoiding a self-esteem vampire is by far the preferred method of dealing with these individuals, that is not always a possibility, especially in a workplace setting, so make a note of them, then use some of the other methods listed below when dealing with them.

The Withering Power of Wit.  It’s true; laugher is the best medicine.  When a self-esteem vampire says something that is calculated to hurt, laugh it off; preferably in front of them.  Respond to their cutting remark or underhanded insult with a laugh or a light-hearted comment.  If the vampire thinks that they are not affecting you then they may move on to other targets.

Heaping Coals of Fire.  Have you ever heard the expression “heaping coals of fire on their head?”  This is an expression that means that by singling out someone who has been mean to you or who seems to delight in making you feel bad and doing something calculated to be nice (in retaliation for the calculated things they do and say to make you feel bad) that the two will cancel themselves out by making the person feel bad for having treated you that way.  Mind you this doesn’t always work; especially if the self-esteem vampire is a veteran, but if they are an amateur you may very well be doing yourself and them a favor by helping them to snap out of it.

Counter the Curse.  Every time the vampire says something calculated to make you take a hit on your self esteem, counter it with a positive statement. This is another method that tends to undermine the effect of a self-esteem vampire’s power, though it works best if you use it to their face.  For example, your co-worker says “You know, I really don’t think that blue is your color.”  You know that you look good in blue, and that this is a statement made specifically with the idea of making you feel bad in mind.  So counter it with something like, “interesting that you should say that, because this shade always makes me feel like a million bucks.”

Don’t underestimate the power of any of these methods, for it is amazing how quickly the self-esteem vampire will stop their attacks if they aren’t getting the reaction from you that they are looking for.

By changing your reactions to their comments you can not only stop their attacks, but bolster your self-esteem in the process, a byproduct that the vampire would probably never have expected.

 

How to Gauge Your Current Level of Self Esteem

How to Gauge Your Current Level of Self Esteem

If you have ever gone on Facebook you’ll have noticed that there are little tests and quizzes that you can take; tests like “what is your soul color” and “which Greek God or Goddess are you?”  Well, consider this to be similar to those kinds of tests.  The following questions are gauged to help you determine your current level of self esteem.   Read the questions carefully; answer truthfully, and then read the explanation below the question, and don’t be discouraged if you score low, the very fact that you are taking the test at all means that you are open to change and that, my friend, is a very good thing indeed.

Self Esteem Question One:  How long can you stare into your own eyes? 

Try it; stand in front of a bathroom mirror.  Place your hands on either side of the sink and lean in close enough until you are looking directly into your own eyes.  How long can you hold your own gaze without feeling the need to turn your eyes away?

The answer to this question is quite simple.  The longer you can hold your own gaze the more comfortable you are with the person you see inside of yourself.  If you find that you have to turn your gaze away after more than a minute or two, you probably need to re-read the five steps to self esteem again and begin putting more of the concepts into practice.

Self Esteem Question Two:  How do you feel when you see yourself in a full-length mirror?

This may sound silly, but it is really quite revealing (no pun intended).  In the privacy of your own home, stand in front of a full length mirror and take note of how you feel about what you see.  Are you comfortable with yourself exactly as you are?  Or do you see all the imperfections and flaws and spots that need improvement?

If you can stand in front of a mirror and not pass judgment on your body, then you are well on your way to developing a high sense of self-esteem.  If you can only find fault with what you see, there is plenty of room for self improvement; specifically in not passing judgment on yourself and accepting yourself exactly the way you are.

Self Esteem Question Three:  Do you see yourself in a positive or negative light? 

Sit down with a blank sheet of paper and a timer set for five minutes.  As quickly as possible write down words that describe yourself, continue writing until you either have no room left on the paper or your five minutes are up.  Now take a second sheet of paper and divide the words up into “positive” and “negative” columns.  If a word describes a positive aspect about you, list it under “positive” if it describes a negative aspect, list it under “negative.”  Which won out, positive or negative?

If the positive descriptions of yourself won out, you are making good progress in your building of positive self esteem.  If negative won out, go back and replace the negative words with positive ones and consider the new list something that you will use as something to strive towards.

While these three questions are by no means comprehensive, they can serve as a gauge for determining your current level of self esteem and how much work you have yet to accomplish.

Time Management – If only we could get a few more hours each day

Time is the one thread that runs through all of our lives. Whether you’re always early for an event, arrive as scheduled, or prefer to be fashionably late, you’re probably also watching the clock. Wouldn’t you love more time in your day to squeeze in more activities?

So how can you get more hours out of your day?

 Consider these time management tips to enhance your productivity:

1.   Preview your schedule for the day the first thing in the morning. Use your calendar effectively and you’ll be able to spend your time more judiciously. 

  • With practice, you’ll learn to recognize which tasks need more time to be completed and which tasks’ scheduled time can be shortened.

2.   At work, if you’re responsible for leading a meeting, be prepared.

  • Write the meeting agenda in advance.
  • Stick to the time allotted for each agenda item.

3.   Keep your focus on the task at hand.

  •     If you need to finish writing a report, stay with it until the report is completed.

4.   Take active steps to screen out distractions. If you work better with soft music playing in the background, arrange to listen to your tunes while you complete your tasks.

  • If you’re on the job, close your office door to deter people from stopping in to say, “Hi,” or ask a quick question.

5.   Stand up.

  • If someone calls you into their office for a minute to get your opinion on an issue, avoid sitting down. Impromptu meetings are shorter when at least one of you stands.

6.   Have confidence about limiting chitchat at work.

  • Don’t be afraid to tell people you can’t talk right at the moment. Rather than getting perturbed, your associates may praise your work ethic of finishing your projects before taking time to chitchat.
  • You’re also setting a great example for the other employees.

7.   Get comfortable with saying “No.” Being assertive is the hallmark of effective time management.

  • When you take on more projects than you have time for, the quality of your work may suffer. Plus, your most important tasks don’t get addressed in a timely fashion if you have too much to do. You’re more likely to get more work done – and do it well – if you aren’t overwhelmed by taking on too much.

8.   Use your planner at home as well.

  • If you’re struggling during off-work hours to manage your time, feel free to also use your planner there. Write in your schedule when you want to work on certain home projects, like washing your car or cleaning the living room.


9.   Set timers or alarms to keep you on task. For example, if you plan to clean your bedroom for an hour, set the alarm on your cell phone. Stop working on the chore at hand when the timer goes off, but not until then (unless you complete the task).

  • Playing “beat the clock” can be highly motivational. Plus you’re likely to get more done.
  • For particularly troublesome tasks, set your alarm in smaller increments – even 15 minutes – and take a short breather when your alarm sounds before you re-focus on your task. In particular, you may find that physically challenging tasks are much more manageable if broken into smaller, more do-able “pieces.”

Effective time management will make you more productive and lead to a well-managed life and stress-free life.

Manage Self-Talk and Improve Your Life

Manage Self-Talk and Improve Your Life

self talk

Self-talk is an integral constant in your life. You start talking to yourself when you wake up in the morning and don’t stop until you fall asleep at night. Who would’ve thought you had so much to say? Right? But you do!

 

When self-talk is positive and helpful, amazing things can happen. When self-talk is negative, life can be much more challenging than it has to be.

 

Like much of who you are, your style of self-talk is a habit that has been molded by your experiences and environment. Imagine how your life could change for the better if you were able to alter your self-talk into something more supporting and encouraging.

 

You can start living that life today! Just follow these simple steps to get started:

 

1.   Make a list of your negative self-talk phrases and attitudes. For 24 hours, record everything you say to yourself that isn’t supportive, regardless of whether or not you think it’s true. Here are a few examples to get you thinking:

  • “He would never want to talk to me.”
  • “I’m not good enough for that.”
  • “I could never do that.”
  • “Things will never get better.”

 

2.   Prioritize your list. Which items have the greatest negative impact on your life and your sense of happiness? Put the list in order, from greatest negative impact to least.

 

  • Prioritizing is important because it will naturally force you to spend your time on the most important items.

3.   Create a new list. Now that you’ve made your list, you’re going to improve it. Convert at least the first 10 items on your list into positive thoughts. If you’re feeling motivated, you can rewrite as many more as you like.

  • Even if you don’t believe the new, positive idea, just change it into a positive version. For example, “I could never do that” changes to, “I can do anything I set my mind to.”

4.   Change your thinking. Now, for the challenging part. Each time you catch yourself engaging in self-talk matching an item from your list, substitute the new self-talk expression.

  • Be diligent at all times. Considering how many times you may have said the negative item to yourself, this new practice will require a lot of attention. The good news is that over time, the positive things you say to yourself will become a habit, too!

5.   Move further down the list. After you’ve conquered the 10 most negative items, look at the list and consider how it would improve your life to change those remaining negative self-talk items. You may have formed such positive habits with your first 10 items that the rest of them might not really be applicable anymore!

Self-talk will always be there, so it will benefit you to exercise some control over it. Anything you hear over and over again, you start to believe. That’s the way our minds work.

 

The first step to gaining that control is to monitor your thoughts and feelings. Then the necessary steps can be taken to change it for the better. As with all habits, these self-talk patterns can be challenging to change, but doing so will really boost your happiness. Get started today!

Being able to figure out what motivates you will be a real benefit throughout your life. Once you know what brings you inspiration, you can draw from this list to keep you going whenever you need a boost.

 

Explore this process to discover your own motivations:

 

1.   Think about the most difficult situation you’ve ever experienced. Then record the answers to these questions:

  • What did you think about the event?
  • How did you feel about it?
  • How did you arrive at how you were going to handle and resolve the situation?
  • What was important to you at the time – was it how you felt, what you thought your parents would think, what you believed was “the right thing to do” or something else?
  • Ultimately, what did you do to resolve the event?

2.   Next, reflect on 2 or 3 of your biggest achievements. Maybe for you, graduating from college or moving out on your own was a big achievement. Continue writing down your answers to these additional questions. This process will help you to identify your own motivations.

  • What did you do to achieve your success?
  • How did you meet your goals?
  • What did you think about during the process?
  • What motivated you – looking out for your future, wanting to make more money, hoping to make your parents proud, or something else?
  • Did you visualize what your life would be like once you had achieved your goal?
  • How much did you really want to achieve it?

3.   Analyze your answers. After reflecting on the above questions, your mind will be more open to identifying what’s important to you. So far, what have you discovered that motivates you? Are you surprised at what you’ve found?

4.   How do you feel about these concepts? What motivates one person might not motivate another. Still, it’s likely that you’ll feel inspired by the same one or two issues consistently throughout your life.

Ideas from this list may ring true to your feelings:

  • You strive to feel like you’re doing “the right thing.”
  • You want to increase your ability to earn more money.
  • Pursuing your passion propels you forward to accomplish more.
  • You hope to see the pride in your parents’ eyes.
  • Maybe you seek recognition from other people – you hope to be noticed and admired.
  • You want to make your or your children’s futures better.
  • You feel the need to prove to yourself that you can achieve something.
  • You like the idea of stepping up to a challenge in your life.
  • Seeking variety in life motivates you to try new things.
  • You strive to overcome a difficult childhood and emerge triumphant.
  • Discovering and validating who you really are as an individual is important to you.
  • You plan to dispute negative messages someone from your past instilled in you.
  • You want to do something in life that “really matters.”
  • Perhaps you enjoy the sheer entertainment value of doing something.
  • Writing down your goals and making an action plan spurs you on to accomplishment.
  • You like to see your list of achievements grow.

Whether you want to improve your life, make more money, or follow your passion, discover what motivates you. Then, apply your motivators to situations that really matter. Now, you’re ready to achieve whatever you seek in life.

Finding Hope in Your Life

Finding Hope in Your Life

How can you cultivate hope when things look bleak? In many ways, being happy is about having hope for the future.

 

Feeling like there is no hope is one of the most challenging emotions to manage. After all, why would someone even try when he believes there is no hope, and correspondingly, no possibility for things to improve?

 

Finding hope when it seems like there’s none to be found can be tricky, but it is possible.

 

It’s important to remember that no matter how hopeless things appear, there’s always the opportunity for things to get better. Even if it doesn’t seem like it at the time, things can change.

 

All of us have challenges at times, and we all have moments where there doesn’t appear to be a way out. Yet everyone who doesn’t give up seems to come out of his or her struggles okay.

 

When you’re feeling down, try these strategies to help bring back hope:

 

1.   Consider all the miraculous things you’ve done in your life. You’ve probably learned how to walk, talk, and maybe even how to drive. Perhaps you’ve graduated from high school or college.

 

  • Let’s think for a minute about learning how to talk. It doesn’t seem very miraculous; nearly everyone learns to do it. But consider how difficult it really is.
  • Babies start out making unintelligible sounds. In a couple of years they can say a few things, though not very well. In a few more years, they can say a fair amount – though still struggle with pronunciation. This is all after years of daily effort.
  • So regardless of what you’re facing, remember your earlier miracles and know you’re entirely capable of working through it. For humans, the seemingly impossible is, in fact, possible.

 

2.   Absorb optimism. Surely you’ve come across people who persistently see the bright side of things. They’re the ones that could stand in the middle of the worst thunderstorm the world has ever seen and say, “I think it’s starting to clear up.”

 

  • Seek out these people and spend time with them. Their optimism will soon start to rub off on you. Talk to them about your challenges; they may have a perspective that can really give you a push in the right direction.

3.   Think of activities that might inspire you. Use every tool at your disposal.

  • Faith could be a source of inspiration.
  • Simple joys, like watching children play on the playground, might bring you the spark you seek.
  • Try reading books that chronicle the triumphs of others.

 

4.   Spend time with those less fortunate. Volunteering to help the homeless or hospice patients can show you that things aren’t quite as challenging as you originally thought.

 

  • Sometimes when you observe firsthand how difficult things can be, you develop a different perspective about your own situation.

 

5.   Also, spend some time with miraculous things. For many, nature’s bounty is awe-inspiring, from flowers and waterfalls to butterflies and spider webs. When you see what’s possible, you realize that you’re capable of remarkable things too.

 

6.   Be courageous. Often, cultivating hope requires courage to take that first step forward. Give yourself the chance to find your way through your challenges.

If you want to find hope in your life, you always can! Although your search for hope might take some work, never give up. Just keep working through it and you’ll discover that you have plenty of reasons to be hopeful.

 

Another very good option is to seek the help of a trained professional. Regardless of your challenges, there are always ways through them.

Attitude Adjustments That Can Change Your Life

Attitude Adjustments That Can Change Your Life

"Running with the seagulls", Galvest...

Do you feel like your life could be happier? A better tomorrow could start with something as simple as your attitude. Our perspectives have a huge effect on our overall level of happiness. They can affect our success as well.

 

Over time, attitudes become habitual. Because of this, they can take a bit of effort to change, but such work is well worth your time!

 

Try these techniques to bring greater happiness and success into your life:

1.   Start each day by making a mental list of things you’re thankful for. You can do this while you’re lying in bed just before you get up, in the shower, or while driving to work. This simple mental exercise will adjust your focus to the good things that you already have.

 

2.   Love life, not stuff. Do you feel that having more possessions will make you happy? What usually happens is that, after you acquire something, it never seems to mean as much to you as you thought it would. After the newness wears off, you’re back to wanting some more new stuff! So the joy in most new possessions is temporary, at best, and leads to more “wanting.”

 

  • The quality of your life itself is what will bring you the most happiness, not the quantity or quality of your stuff.
  • Spend some time each day doing what you love.
  • Build meaningful relationships that uplift you.
  • Take action to create a life filled with what truly means the most to you.

3.   Be patient. Our society has trained us to be in a hurry and expect immediate gratification. However, some of the great things in life take time to bring to fruition.

 

  • Enjoy the process of creating the life you desire. Each day will bring you one step closer. Being impatient tends to push your goals farther away.

4.   Believe in yourself. Life is much more pleasant when you have faith in yourself. Remember: You’ve already done things that are much more difficult than just about anything you may still wish to accomplish. So you know you can achieve your future plans.

 

  • Consider learning to walk. How many times does a baby fall before they finally can stand up unassisted, let alone walk? And we keep learning more over time. Even a 10-year old doesn’t walk as well as a 30-year old. It takes many years of practice.

 

  • How many times are you willing to fall down and get back up now? When you believe in yourself and expect success, you’re more likely to succeed. Your upbeat attitude will lead you to seek solutions to your challenges until you reach your goal.

5.   Sometimes being smart is sufficient. We often believe that everything worthwhile requires a lot of work. However, many times, approaching challenges by working smart instead of working hard can save a lot of time and grief.

 

  • Sit down and reflect on your situation from the perspective that there’s a simple solution to each challenge. You might be surprised how clever you can be if you make an effort to find an easy but satisfactory solution.

 

6.   There’s no such thing as failure. Each time your plans fall short, analyze where they went wrong, learn from the experience, and continue moving forward.

 

  • When you “fail,” all you’ve really done is discovered an ineffective way of trying to do something. That’s all. The knowledge gained only makes you more capable in the future.

 

Adjusting your attitude and making the changes permanent will take some work, but this effort pays off. Your attitude affects your perspective, what you notice, and what you fail to notice. So by adjusting your attitude, you can shift your whole reality!

 

Examine the attitudes you already hold that may be limiting your life and happiness. What perspectives and beliefs would serve you better? Use the above ideas to start the process of adjusting those ineffective attitudes today for a happier tomorrow.

Harnessing your ingenuity will make your life more meaningful and enjoyable. Discover here why creativity is so important and welcome more innovation and inspiration into your daily activities.

 

How Creativity Enriches Your Life

 1.   Experience more joy. Creativity flourishes when you think positively. Find your passions and cultivate them. Embrace challenges with curiosity. Observe the conditions that help you get “in the zone.”

2.   Improve your physical health. Studies show that creativity exercises are an effective way to relieve stress and boost our immune system. Those who think resourcefully also cope better with aging and experience fewer declines in their cognitive functions.

 

3.   Strengthen your relationships. A sense of imagination can even enhance your personal relationships. Break out of the same old conflicts by searching for common ground. Look at challenging situations from the other person’s perspective and try out a different response.

 

4.   Perform better at work. Collaboration is integral to the creative process. Help create a more cooperative atmosphere where colleagues complement each other’s strengths rather than competing.

 

5.   Be all you can be. We all have some form of creative genius. Enjoy the pleasure of developing your own gifts. With persistence and an open mind, you’ll expand your skills for responding to all kinds of challenges.

 

Techniques for Sparking Your Creativity

 

1.   Brainstorm. Generating ideas is usually the first step in the creative process. Put aside any judgments and just let the options flow. Now’s your chance to get zany and experimental.

2.   Incubate. Before inspiration hits, there’s usually a quiet time while we digest our ideas.

 

  • Help your unconscious mind along by taking a quiet walk or a relaxing shower. Routine tasks like washing dishes can also trigger insights. Think about a dilemma right before bed, and you may wake up with a solution.

3.   Take action. Make a plan for how to implement your ideas. Regard every attempt as a learning experience even if the immediate results fail to pan out. Remember that successful people succeed because they take more risks.

 

4.   Lighten up. Free up your fertile mind.

 

  • A bit of gentle aerobics and stretches will relax your body.
  • Meditation or soft music can dispel anxieties or boredom.
  • Humor is a very powerful tool for lowering inhibitions and seeing things more vividly.

5.   Change your routine. Any adjustment to your usual way of doing things can help you take a fresh look at life. Take an alternate route to work or visit a coffee shop on the other side of town. Expand your horizons by looking for ways to experience novelty on a regular basis.

 

6.   Observe the details. On the other hand, you can re-invent the most familiar aspects of your life by viewing them from a fresh angle. Think about how your kitchen would appear to an alien from space.

 

7.   Ignore the clock. Get up early so you can savor the luxury of open-ended time. Forget about deadlines. Focus on the present moment instead of thinking about the next task you have scheduled. Feel what it’s like to be free from hurrying. Try to remember that sensation as you start your day.

8.   Get a hobby. Make the most of your leisure time with creative outlets that incorporate your passions. You may delight in watercolors. Or maybe you really get a kick out of working on cars.

9.   Seek inspiration. Surround yourself with whatever you find invigorating. Visit art museums or go camping. Spend more time playing with your kids and getting caught up in their excitement each time they see something new.

Transform your life into a work of art by tapping into your creative side. Once you discover and develop your passions, you’ll be on your way to feeling more accomplished and fulfilled.
