Positive Steps To Improve Your Wellbeing.

 

 

 

The following ideas are all designed to help you improve your well being, reduce stress and help towards creating a more balanced life.

 

  1. Be Kind To Yourself.

 

It is easy to allow negative thinking into your mind and constantly berate yourself. Be kind to yourself. Encourage rather than criticise yourself all the time. Treat yourself as a person as you would a friend. You wouldn't berate your friend so why would you constantly do it to yourself?

 

  1. See The Bigger Picture.

 

Perspective over things is easily lost in a cycle of negative thought. Broaden your perspective and consider the bigger picture, will these things matter in a year? Is there another way I should be looking at this? How would others react in the same situation?

 

  1. Relaxation.

 

Allow yourself time to chill out and relax. Research mindfulness and find something that works for you and allows you to relax.

 

  1. Help Others.

 

Helping others, getting involved with charity work or a community project is a great way to do something worthwhile which in turn helps you feel proud of yourself and better about you.

 

  1. Eat Healthily and Regularly.

 

Make sure that you eat regularly, eat healthily and drink lots of water. Your body will feel better if you do and this can improve your sense of well being.

 

  1. Balance Sleep.

 

Get into a healthy sleep routine and you will feel the benefits. Make sure your sleeping area is quiet, dark and comfortable.

 

  1. Acceptance of Thoughts and Feelings.

 

Our instinct is to fight against distressing thoughts or emotions, you can teach yourself to notice them but not fight them. Some situations can not be changed but you can ride the thoughts rather than tying to combat them. Allow those thoughts, emotions and sensations just to be, and they will pass.
