• #MotivationalMonday#91 • —In a Funk? It's Temporary!— It’s easy to get into a funk this time of year. The holidays are over and for many, it’s back to work, time to pay post-season bills and face our New Year resolutions.
It is normal to experience feeling down at times. It's important to accept your feelings whether you’re lacking motivation, feeling insecure, experiencing loneliness or facing any other sad emotion.
Research shows that these emotions are fleeting and the best antidote is to KNOW that while very real, they will NOT last. Ruminate in a positive way, reminding yourself that "this is temporary". It is a choice we make everyday, throughout the day. When your negative, inner voice creeps up and you feel down, remember, it is just TEMPORARY!
You don’t need to pressure yourself to always be happy or positive.
Feeling good will be a byproduct of how you think and react.
When you find yourself going into worry mode, manage your emotions by prioritizing what really matters and what’s important!
Create a NEW mantra, asking yourself, “Will this really matter tomorrow, in a week, in a year?” Do the best you can in any given situation and then let go!
You will free yourself and develop a sense of inner peace that you never thought possible.
Happy New “You“ Year! #motivationalmonday#happynewyear#2018#newyearnewme#happynewyear#resolution#newyearnewyou
Nowhere is there a more idyllic spot, a vacation home more private and peaceful, than in one’s own mind, especially when it is furnished in such a way that the merest inward glance induces ease.” ~ Marcus Aurelius
Create a sense of calm and happiness in your mind by shifting the way you think and developing new neural pathways.
In times of tension, repeat the calming mantra, “Breathe in peace, breathe out stress”. Or, be still and allow your mind to settle and connect to whatever you are feeling in your body.
In order to furnish your mind so that it can become a retreat, consciously do these practices for at least 20 seconds.
You can have control over the way you think. Create new, positive neural pathways and make your mind a place that brings you excitement, peace and joy!
