For the past three months, it seems I’ve been going through a valley or season. You could even call it an emotional roller coaster. However, you choose to label it, it’s been a few trying months. Every time I think I have a hold on my emotions and able to control them, something happens and I end up in the same rut. This time though, I’m not having it!!! (Yes this calls for 3 exclamation points) I said enough is enough, I’m over this s-beep. Girl get it together.
I’m going to share with the steps of how treat my negative symptoms and overcome them. I’ve outlined a five step process in the video on my YouTube channel. But here, I’m going to go into a little more detail AND I’ve added two BONUS steps that I could not leave out. Ok, I’m excited! Let the countdown begin.
#5-Relax & Have Fun
Having fun is a simple idea that I’ve talked about from day one. The reason is because it is one of the quickest and easiest ways to get you back to happy. This obviously will be different for everyone but, whatever your source of relaxation, fun or peace may be, do that!
This is another staple of mine that I practice regularly. This can be difficult at first and takes some time to get used too. However, when you get in the habit of doing it daily, it will be like no other force you’ve felt before. It is one of my favorite things to do to re-center my mind and emotions. When doing it with crystals it’s even more effective. It helps to keep me balanced the entire day.
#3-Exercise & Foods
Dieting such as detoxing your body and eating foods with cleansing properties; and intense cardio and lifting weights is an awesome way to rid of negativity. For me, when I’m working out, I focus so hard on the work out and the effects I will feel afterwards ,that it becomes the very thing that makes me work harder. The sauna and hot tub are the icing the cake.
I learned about affirmations when I was a little girl. In my YouTube video, I tell a story of how my Mom would make a list of affirmations and I’d say them to myself in the bathroom mirror. Strangely, I’ve carried that memory with me my whole life. She said, “whenever you need encouragement, say them out loud.” Being so young, I didn’t understand the value at the time, so like most young kids, I didn’t give it a second thought. Now almost 30 years later, I find that I am at a time in my life where I need them more than ever.
#1-Prayer & Supplication
My number one, of course. This beats all others and nothing compares to it. I feel safe in prayer and know that I am being heard.
I couldn’t complete this posting without mentioning family and loved ones. There’s something about loving on my girls and my honey-pie that makes me feel good.
Ok guys. So I’ve laid the foundation and it’s time for you to start your healing. What do you do, to get yourself back online? Let me know down in the comments below.
Until next time, self-love is the best love!
