Life comes at you in all directions. To remain positive, you must tap into your inner self.

Steps

  1. Wake up every day with a smile on your face.
  2. Whatever happened yesterday, keep it there. Today is a new day.
  3. A new day is a new challenge and deserves a new approach. Try doing things a little differently each day.
  4. Get some alone time. If you spend your whole day surrounded by people, you are going to end up stressed. Spend some time in your bedroom reading a book.
  5. Start and complete everything you do. Don't do things half-assed.
  6. Make peace with yourself and your past. If you hurt a person's feelings yesterday, apologize to them today. If you hold onto guilt and anger, you will live a stressed and miserable life.
  7. Learn to forgive, rather than forget.
  8. Try going on a walk for a few minutes. The fresh air and alone time gives you time to think and cool off.
  9. Put on some music you love, draw a warm bubble bath, grab a bar of chocolate, and grab a good, funny book. Stay in as long as you want. Chances are you'll come out in a great mood.


Tips

  • Whenever you are faced with a stressful situation always remember that there is another way to handle things.
  • Being alone for 5-15 minutes can really make your stress disappear. It allows your body and mind to calm down.
  • If your creative 'bug' is to paint or sew, complete the task. It will make you feel proud of yourself. That gives you new confidence.
  • Avoid being critical towards yourself. It brings your good mood down, which could also lead to you being a pessimist about everything.
  • There is a lesson to be learned in everything.
