Every day is a fresh start to make things better in your life.
Life can be full of excitement, happiness and joy and at times it is also full of frustration, sadness or unhappiness.
This article is for those days when you feel like you got out of bed on the side. Here are some tips to help keep you going no matter what is happening in your life.
It's normal to have bad days sometimes. Sometimes you just need to go with the flow of it. Accept how you are feeling and what you are thinking. Listen to what you body is telling you - do you need to eat healthier, drink more water, rest or just relaxed?
Trust yourself. Each day is a new experience, and within you exists amazing inner resources to help you when you need them. Trust that everything you need is within you and is there waiting to be used.
Accept how you feel. Being human is very multi-dimensional. Each day brings with it emotions some sad, happy, anger, frustration, depression or joy. Accept each emotion with love and acknowledge that they are completely normal.
Recognise all that you have achieved. It's so easy when you have a bad day to focus on what you do not have, what's gone wrong and what's missing in your life. Remind yourself all that you have and all that you have achieved.
Learn to love yourself. Ask yourself "Am I being kind to myself?" and listen to the answer. If it is no, ask yourself why not and what needs to change. Loving yourself is the key to your success and happiness in life. Each day take another step closer to embracing and loving who you are.
Remember you have a beautiful soul and you are a beautiful person.
Really see yourself. Look in the mirror and embrace your best features. Focus on them for a few minutes and embrace and love them. Appreciate your whole body as this wonderful vessel has helped you in so many ways.
Take time out. When things are feeling like they are getting too much take some time out. Meditate, or do some breathing exercises to recharge your batteries. This will also help gain some clarity in your life.
Be kind to others. Do something for others without any judgements or expectations. Volunteer at a charity, give some time and give from your heart. Smile at a stranger on the street, help someone with their shopping or give up your seat on public transport to those who need it more.
Disconnect from your computer. Technology has it's many advantages but it also helps to disconnect from others. Instead of chatting to friends on facebook or twitter meet them face to face. How better is to interact with a living breathing person than a facebook profile?
Learning to be comfortable with the uncomfortable. This is a great reminder that life isn't about everything being perfect, but learning to be comfortable when things do not go exactly as you have wanted.
If you are having a bad day sometimes you just need to be kind with yourself and flow with it. Give yourself time and space
