Tips for Living
1. No-one is an island.
Talk to people about your problems. Don’t isolate yourself. Challenge your negative thoughts.
2. Take time for yourself if you need it.
While its important to nurture your friendships, try to find your own balance between being social and having time to yourself. Being by yourself can be cleansing and it certainly doesn’t have to be lonely. This is especially important if you live a very busy life!
3. Move your body.
This is a no-brainer. Moving your body will make you feel better. Channel your energy into something productive. Walk, dance, practice yoga, run in the park or go to the gym!
4. Be good to yourself.
Treat and talk to yourself like you are your own best friend. Think of it as a genuine relationship with someone you respect and care about. Focus on being as good to yourself as you are to others.
5. You are not your thoughts.
You may think something scary or hurtful but remember you are not those thoughts. Try and say them out loud to yourself and dismiss them.
6. And finally…Progress isn’t linear.
Give yourself a break. It’s ok not to be ok. Just remember that nothing you may be feeling is permanent.
7. As simple as A-B-C!
