No person has ever been truly perfect throughout their entire lifespan. We are all faced with stressful situations that can get us down, especially on those “off” days that we get now-and-then. Sometimes, however, those “off” days can seem to last forever and you could continue to feel “off” the next day, gradually reducing our confidence and making us feel ill-minded and sometimes even physically ill. The Anxiety and Depression Association of America reports that 18% of the US population suffers from depression. Calm Clinic also reports that at least 28% of all people, regardless of their location on Earth, will suffer from some kind of anxiety-related mental disorder at some point in their lives. The Global Organization for Stress recently revealed that as much as 75% of the global population experiences at least moderate levels of stress frequently. These are all mental conditions that can make you feel weary, dull, unmotivated and like your life is going absolutely nowhere.
Fortunately, the unpleasant emotions you are experiencing that are making you feel ill, both mentally and physically, can be repaired. While each person is very different from another person, going back to step one to reset your entire being, this includes your mind, your body and also your soul. In this post, we wish to share some of the most effective strategies that you can utilize to help you reset yourself, gain back that confidence and start living life once again. While many of these strategies may seem excessively simple and irrelevant, by the end of your resetting journey, you will most definitely feel better about yourself.
1. Start with a “Power Hour”
One of the most effective methods for resetting your mind, body and your soul, of course, is to practice a self-care method that is often referred to as the “power hour”. We tend to live busy lives and forget just how important it is to care for ourselves as well. This is a primary factor that causes us to feel helpless and like we are caught in a never ending trap. The Blissful Mind explains that the power hour includes setting aside one hour each day to spend on you – the hour should be split into three different parts, each consisting of 20-minute sessions. During each session, you will focus on a different attribute, including your body, your mind and then, during the last 20 minutes, your soul.
2. Positive Thoughts, Even When Negativity Strikes
Another vital part of resetting your entire “being” is to focus on the positive things in your life and to think in a positive way, even when your life is filled with a lot of negative attributes. This might be one of the most difficult goals to accomplish in your journey to reset yourself, but it will definitely have a positive impact on your life. To stay positive when you are faced with a situation where negativity is the leading emotion, IT Managers Inbox recommends taking a deep breath and controlling the way you respond to comments and questions, as well as to use the negativity as a way to learn something new.
3. Organize Your Life at Home
When work keeps you busy around the clock, your life at home may suffer more than you think. Everything at home may become unorganized and you’ll soon find that nothing is where it should be. This can be very frustrating and lead to additional heaps of stress in your life. Try to take a day off from work to organize your life back at home. This could have a considerable amount of benefits in store for you in the end, apart from making you less frustrated when you are looking for something and it is not in the spot that it is supposed to be in. The next time you walk into your home after a hard day at work, you would feel much more relaxed and would not have to struggle due to your home being disorganized due to work taking up too much of your time.
4. Work on Your Nutrition
A lot of people tend to grab the nearest packet of candy or potato chips when stress works its way into their lives. Others completely lose their appetite and end up only eating on rare occasions. Both of these situations are unhelpful to your health and it certain is not good for your stress levels. Not gaining enough of essential vitamins and other forms of nutrition is bad for you and your body’s wellbeing, and it can make you feel ill and tired. Try to plan out your meals in such a way that you are always gaining enough nutrition to ensure your body receives everything it needs to stay healthy, fit and working well.
5. Explore the Great Outdoors
When work keeps us busy in an office all day long, we usually get home when it is already dark. Thus, we prepare food, watch some television, take a shower and jump into the bed. We never get the opportunity to observe nature or, more importantly, breathe in some fresh air. Fresh air is very good for you and exploring the great outdoors could even be beneficial for your mental health. He next time lunch hour arrives, keep your phone at the office and take a walk to the park to eat lunch. If you have some money left in your savings account, arrange a weekend of exploring the great outdoors with the family or a couple of friends – there are many resorts that offer outdoor experiences that could only do you good.
While the stress that your daily life places on your mental wellbeing can wear you down rather quickly, there are ways to better cope with such stress and reset your entire “being” when you feel worn out and like life is getting the most of you. We recommend following the five simple, yet effective strategies that we have discussed here to help you get out of your “rut” and back to life.
