3 Ways to help you go from not feeling good to feeling good!

3 Ways to help you go from not feeling good to feeling good!

 

Sometimes challenges come towards us with incredible speed. Whether it is family, health, or work, life is full and it happens every second of the day. How well we manage life when it happens will affect how we feel about it and how much we can get out out it.

So what can we do to help ourselves feel good about life? How can we change our frequency from one of fear, sadness of frustration to one of contentment, joy, enthusiasm?

I don’t know about you but when such events arrive in my life I want something that I can easily do, that it doesn’t require special preparations or conditions, and that I can do it on my own. At least these are my criteria, you certainly may have others.

Here are a few of the things that I apply almost daily.

A.  Usually the first thing on my list is theI letting go technique. If you aren’t familiar with this simple but extremely effective technique, below you will find the basics steps. If you want to learn more about it, either contact me or you can read in the book “Letting Go, the pathway to surrender” by Dr. David R. Hawkins M.D., PhD.

  1. If you are experiencing emotions, the first thing to do is to become aware of those emotions, particularly of the one that is the strongest.
  2. Locate where in your body you feel that emotion. The thing about emotions is that we feel them physically in our bodies. That’s how we know that we have emotions, because we experience them in our bodies.
  3. Once you have pinpointed the location in your body, focus on that physical sensation and stay with it observing it without any judgement or criticism. Simply, be present with it and observe it.
  4. Continue observing that physical sensation and notice what intensity it has, how much space it takes in the body, if it is static or rather dynamic etc.
  5. As you continue doing that you will start noticing changes with that emotion/sensation. The changes might go in any direction, for example, reduced intensity or increased intensity  etc. No matter the direction, stay with the emotion and continue observing it. Eventually, it will start dissipating, kind of like melting into the body.
  6. Do this until you feel no more of that physical sensation in the body. When that is the case you can stop the process and then notice how you feel. Is there more off the initial emotion or not? If there is, repeat the process, if not, great! You have just changed your vibration to a positive one.

B. Another thing I do is finding activities that help me feel better. What kind of activities can you do? Anything that truly makes you feel good. Like walk in the nature, doing gardening, taking a bicycle ride, listening to your favourite music/song, painting, playing with children or pets, cooking, singing, running, etc, etc.

The trick about all these activities is to help yourself feel a little bit better than before. The idea is not to feel super great all of the sudden but to change the vibration to a higher one than before.  Try it, you will be pleasantly surprised.

C. Yet another option that we have is called reframing. It is a NLP term and it simply means finding a way to see each situation as a “glass half full, rather than half empty”. So, for example, something happened at work that caused you unpleasant emotions. Instead of reacting to it, we try to find the one (or more) positive points about that same situation. You may need to make an effort at first but believe me, you can find it and you will find it. If nothing else, the positive could be that this particular situation is helping clarify what you truly want out of a job.

Here you go, these are the top 3 things to do when life has thrown you a curveball. If you find something else helpful, please share it with me. I’d love to know about it.
