GOTCHA! You really thought I was going to tell you how to make wine from lemons, right?
It is Thursday and we are only in the 2nd week of the New Year, what could possibly be stressing you out, right?
Maybe those holiday bills have started to come in. Maybe work is not all you want it to be. Maybe there are health issues. Maybe there are relationship issues. Whatever is stressing and upsetting you – you can OVERCOME it.
Now, I am not advocating drinking your troubles away BUT a nice glass of wine is a great way to relax for some.
Here’s 3 tips that will help YOU!
#1 Take Time To Yourself! I get it. It is hard to take time for yourself when it feels like the world is falling around you. The truth is that despite the “mess”, you deserve time for yourself. Okay, so an hour out of each day may sound CRAZY. So start small with 15 minutes and work your way up to a full hour. During this time, don’t worry about anything, fill your mind with positive thoughts, and do something you enjoy.
#2 Be Loyal And Respect Yourself! I know that I am talking about this A LOT lately but it is so important. Being loyal to yourself means that you are true to who you are, and never be sorry for it. That means NEVER apologizing for being you. You are AWESOME. Some may like you. Others may not. Isn’t that why we have 31 flavors of ice cream? Respecting yourself means that you will not let people walk over you. That means “NO PEOPLE PLEASING”. If there is something that you don’t want to do, respect yourself enough to say NO!
#3 Be Solution Driven! Life is a roller coaster full of up’s and down’s! Everyone’s life has a roller coaster even if you don’t see it. The best way to power through life’s roller coaster of down’s is by learning to find solutions. What can you do to work through the struggles you’re having? Can’t see a solution? Make a list of pro’s and con’s and see what you come up with. Maybe that will help you come to conclusion or maybe not. Either way, at least you will be able to say you did your best. Who knows you may begin to see the rainbow at the end of the storm.
