Emotional Wellbeing

 

Your emotional well-being is paramount to your success in life. If you are not well with your mind, body and spirit then you can feel an imbalance. There are many ways to ensure your emotional well-being is positive… Take a look at some of the advice below to help boost your emotional well-being.

Get Some Exercise

Daily exercise gives you a break from your mind chatter, helps pump your heart, circulates your blood, clears toxins from your body, charges you with energy and has many other benefits. There are many activities you can choose from… Do walking one day and yoga another day. Take a Tai Chi class and meet new people. The list of possibilities is endless and all help to revitalise your body, clear your mind and keep you healthy.


Get Spiritual

Meditate, or sit quietly, and be in the moment. Read books that are uplifting and have positive messages. Be thankful for your health, your home, your friends, all the joy and happiness in your life and all the good that surrounds you.


Be Forgiving

It is time to let it go. Forgive yourself for any past mistakes or shortcomings; forgive the child within for being afraid; forgive the teenager that spoke words of anger; forgive the young adult for not being a risk taker. Forgive others in the past. Forgive your parents, your siblings and relatives. Let go of all grudges. Forgiveness is about coming to peace within yourself. When you are at peace with yourself, you can be at peace with others.


Watch Your Nutrition

Listen to your body. It speaks to you about what it needs. Feed it good nutritious food. Take a multi-vitamin supplement. Drink plenty of water and keep yourself hydrated. Water is also good for brain function and digestion. Most health challenges can be reduced or eliminated with a dietary supplement and drinking water.


Be Kind To Others and Non-judgemental

Give up judgment and blame. Speak words of encouragement to yourself and everyone you meet. Accept everyone for who they are and embrace their differences. Offer unconditional kindness and support to others. Be a great listener and really listen to people when they speak. Find ways to help others to lift their spirits and make them smile.


Love yourself and others

Love yourself and use positive words of encouragement. Compliment strangers and make others smile. Speak with kind words and a loving heart.


Learn To Relax

Make sure you relax and have ‘Me’ time each day. Life can be hectic and it is important to have time where your mind and body can recuperate and regenerate. Stress is a killer!


Be Present

Live in the now. The past is gone. You can never go back and make it right. You can never re-live a life that was yesterday. Live positively in the present moment, no matter what is occurring. Right now is all we really have. Do not look ahead and dread what may come. Our mind creates a lot of chatter and makes us afraid in order to keep us safe. Tell your mind "I am in the present and all is well”.


Enjoy Humour

Watch something funny whether it's a comedy film, a funny clip on YouTube .... anything which makes you laugh in fact, as laughter helps release natural endorphins which give you the "feel-good" factor.

Enjoy Nature

Sit on the grass or next to a tree. Feel the breeze on your face and the warmth of the sun on your body. Smile at nature, and all her beauty… really appreciate nature. Take in some deep breaths of fresh air.
