Good Mood is the Best Mode- 3 Things to Do When You Feel Low…

Vj.jpg

Hi All,

It’s been so long since my work kept me away from sharing my thoughts here. Finally I am here one more time…

Well, I often write about feeling good, staying motivated, energetic, keep fighting and much more.. But sometimes we don’t get a good start of the day for some reasons. May be you are afraid of a busy day , may be you dint get a good sleep last night, may be you thought a lot about something that you can’t control or the most common reasons – Missing someone and Flashbacks!!

 

Some times we loose that positive momentum during hard first few hours of the day and in the second half we feel tired, low, lost, somewhat sad or uninspired.

What to do then? Is that day lost and should you just aim for a better day tomorrow?

Well, the good news is-  Today is not over yet!!

Here’s how I do that by breaking the negative mood and getting a new start.

1. Appreciate what you have-

The simplest of my most commonly used pick-me-ups.

I tell myself: OK, I might not feel so good right now, but what can I be grateful for and appreciate in my life?

I usually come up with simple things like-

  • My Health.
  • My Victory over some past issues.
  • My Professional Achievements.
  • My New Books That I Recently Bought to Read.
  • The Biggest- While Closing My Eyes and Thinking of All the Happening , Somewhere deep down inside I always find a silver line of my undying hope that everything is going to be fine. I am leading to a blissful life 🙂 . Trust me , this thought is enough for me to be charged up again to face anything in life. Because I know at the end I’ll be the winner and so you are… Have faith , YOU ARE A WINNER!!

 

2. Act as you would like to feel.

Emotions work backwards too. So if I want to become more positive or enthusiastic then I act in the manner of a person who is positive or enthusiastic.

I might not feel like it. But I do it as best as I can anyway. I may for example:

  • Think of the task I have in front of me as something exciting and fun.
  • Answer some emails or talk to someone in a positive and enthusiastic manner.
  • Assume rapport if I feel unmotivated, negative or nervous before some kind of meeting (assuming rapport is to I think to myself that I am meeting one of my best friends just before the meeting and that puts me in the right mood and headspace).

3. Think for a minute and give someone a genuine compliment.

Spend one minute coming up with something you really and genuinely appreciate about someone in your life that is in the same room as you at some point during the day. Then tell him or her the genuine compliment you have come up with.

Everyday is a blessing in itself. We just need that outlook towards life that can tend us to notice the good in everything.

Stay Happy and Have a Great Day!!

My 8 Commitments to Myself..

“Commitment”- This 10 letters word is loaded with a lot of responsibilities, realization of facts, hopes of future, Assurance, A Series of Positive Trials to Make Something Happen and much more is hidden in this word. Whenever we feel the urge of bonding ourselves in the pursuit of doing something then we give the commitment. Commitment is a kind of positive force. I have given many commitments to people and tried my best to act accordingly in most of the cases. Sometimes we have to sacrifice a lot in order to live up to our commitments. This time I decided to use this force in my favour, Here are few commitments that we should made to our own selves –

1-Being True to Who I Am/You Aredownload (2).jpg

A person is a layered entity.  Sometimes we make changes in ourselves to please the people around and as per the time. There is a huge difference between “being true” and “correcting ourselves while being wrong” . There is nothing wrong in adopting the change until we don’t loose our real self. Be Real to Your Yourself. Do What Gives You a Reason to Smile and Be Proud of!

2-Stand for Your Own Set of Rules – Every one of us have our own set of ethics, principles and moral codes. Live true to them every day. Time always comes with 2 options for Everyone, 1- Act Ethical 2- Act Unethical. Initially we notice no harm in adopting the easy Way 2 ,but Way 1 is way better than Way 2. Act as per the ethics, Morals & Humanity. Life will never give you a chance to feel guilty.

3-Create Life’s handbook- letter3.jpg

I decided to devote a fine day to make my handbook comprises of my Values, My Professional Goals, My Monetary Goals ( Short Term and Long Term) , Personal Goals, The Things to Do That Make Me Happy, Travel Goals, Personal Strengths, The Loopholes to Work Upon , The Habits to Quit. We get a path to act when we write down my plans. The handbook is a road map to build on a strategy to achieve.

4-Let Go of Attachments- download (1).jpg

The attached strings bring us down many times in life. Don’t fixate yourself with a status, fame , possession etc.Same goes with the people too, Don’t be too much attached to anyone because it forces us to do a lot of the unwanted things followed with the fear of loosing, depression and much more. Create bonding but stay practical in your approach. These are impermanent and will ultimately disappear one day when you die. Focus on growing and living life to the fullest instead.

5-Do a Kind Deed a Day- What is something you can do today that will make the world a better place? Go and do it.

6-Don’t Settle I am in full plan for not to settle for less. Don’t settle for someone you don’t like as your partner. Don’t settle for a job you don’t like. Don’t settle for friends who make you feel like a lesser person. Don’t settle for a weight you are unhappy with. Go for what you really want.

7-Live Life & Love Life- untitled

Many times in life we give so much of value to others and somehow we forget to live our life. Life is truly good. I always find living to be a fascinating experience.. There’s so much we don’t know out there about this world, so much is there to be experienced in life.it’s just wonderful. We have a life that millions of people dream of, then why not to enjoy it.

8-Make a Source of Alternate Income- Money is not everything in life, but it has a significant role to play in the life of each one of us. Don’t be dependent on Salary and Fixed Deposits. Use your expertise to generate a source of continuous alternate income. Create a business, that can keep running even if you are not physically present there all the time to monitor.

As I always mention, Never do wrong with anybody and enjoy this blissful life at the fullest. Don’t do wrong because in some way or other What Goes Around, Comes Around!!

5 Things That We Should Start Doing for Ourselves!

1- Watch the Sun Rise!

A Refreshing One & My Favorite also ! Try to find a day from each of your weeks to watch a sun rise. This is a scientifically proved way to revitalize your mind and it will imbue your day with new enthusiasm. I assure a smile on face when you will witness it!! 🙂 I would suggest Monday morning for this practice so that you can get a great start of the Week!

2- Take a Walk in the Nature!

We are so busy in our days that somehow we have forgotten the value of fresh air , wind, chirp of birds, sound of a waterfall etc. etc. (I will not ask you to go for a weekend gateway every week 😛 ) but find sometime to visit a nearby Grass-yard or Park atleast once in a week . When a person suffers from intense decease then doctors also recommend this so before being too late , start it from now!! This will low down your mental stress. I would recommend Saturday Evening for this Practice. Rest your choice! 🙂

3- A Meeting with Yourself!

How this idea sounds to you? We keep on meeting many people for work. Every week on an average we give our time to 40-45 people in some way. But in this rush we forget to spend the time with the one, who is the closest to us, that person is “Our Own Self” . Once in a week find some time for a close meeting with your own self. Use this time for Planning of Next Week, Personal Grooming, Read any Inspirational Book, Remember Good Times , Accompany yourself with soothing mild music and Be Quiet for sometime. Silence is a great way to re-energize the mind. Stay in silence for sometime and feel new energy. I would recommend Sunday for this Practice.

4- Start Creating a Personal Playlist of Songs!

Most of us love the music. We have a tendency to connect ourselves so easily with the lyrics of any song. Then Why don’t we use it as a personal motivator!! Trust me you will never regret for investing your time to create this playlist. Make a playlist of some good songs-Positive , Motivational, Devotional, Instrumental songs etc. Whenever you feel low just turn your music on and play your own favorites . I promise a change in mood within minutes. It can remove all your toxic negative thoughts to a big extent. I would suggest Friday late night for this job.

5- Make a Memory Journal & Write One Good Incident Every Week that You Come Across!

We have a habit of talking about all the bad things that have happened to us, we hardly talk about the great events that we encounter. I am sure every day God does something good for us, we just need to notice that. Atleast I can say this with my personal experience.Some kind words, a motivational comment from a colleague, a compliment for your dressing sense , a call from a close friend or anything that can make you feel better from inside is valuable. Can’t we appreciate it?? “We get more what we are grateful for!”- I have read it many times ! Start writing minimum one good thing per week- Be it a compliment, be it any incident. MAKE A MEMORY JOURNAL FOR YOURSELF. AT THE END OF THE YEAR YOUR WILL BE SURPRISED TO SEE THAT Minimum 57-60 GOOD THINGS HAVE BEEN HAPPENED IN YOUR LIFE WHEN YOU WERE BUSY IN FOCUSING ON PROBLEMS!!  TRUST ME YOU WILL RECEIVE MORE GOOD THINGS WHEN YOU WILL START APPRECIATING THE LITTLE HAPPINESS !!

Hope this post will bring a smile to you. Do Good, Be Good and Expect Good to Happen! 🙂

Trust Your Journey of Life!!

Hello Folks!! Hope you are enjoying the newness of this week!! Today the thought that I am going to share with you is driven by the planning of my upcoming trip. Whenever we decide to visit a new place, We follow a process-
1- Decide Where to Go.
2- The Thoughts of Good things that we can get while going for this trip. In terms of Serenity , Peace, Views, Knowledge of Culture, Leisure Time, Break from Our Routine Schedules etc. etc. We start visualizing ourselves at that destination doing the things of our choice.
3- Planning & Execution
4- Believe that we planned well and Wait for the day to start.

During this whole process ,we keep visualizing , we keep believing that the journey will be full of good memories and a refreshing one. We hold this thought in ourselves. Which is a form of the “Trust” that everything is going to be absolutely fantastic.Whenever we are on a road trip and have to shift our speed and gear as per the requirement of a turn then do we think that rest of the road will not be good? Or rest of the journey will not be good? No!! Right!! We treat the turn as a Turn only, It’s sharpness or a little shift in our speed & posture or change in our heart beat don’t give us the negative feeling about whole journey. We move forward with a Belief , We enjoy the ride!! Right!! Life is exactly same!!

Have you ever felt that Life is also a journey. Yes,Many say that Life is unplanned, I do agree!! We should be ready to welcome unexpected turns but at the same time we should be have a faith in Almighty that all whatever we get will lead us to a life of Abundance , Excitement,Full of Love , Glory and all the good things that we desire for.Duration of this journey of life is more than the duration of any other journey so there are more chances for change, improvement and shift in feelings. Life gives us many chances to experiment,to change the pace and decide where to go. Many good and bad incidents take place but any incident (Turn) is not big enough to think that rest of the journey will not be good. We should trust the process,We should trust our journey.As all days are not same in terms of weather and temperature so our lives!! Our motives throughout the passing years should be- Keep Moving, Have Faith, Stay Honest and Be Good to All. Rest all will be taken care by God, What goes around, comes around. So Focus on being a good human, Do Justice with all whom you come across. Have faith , in the end you will be in peace and your life will be exemplary good!!
Just Trust Your Journey!! Enjoy the Process and Stay Positive!! Good Thing Happen in Everybody’s Life!!
