We get to a point in our lives where we can feel that is enough is enough. It may be that you feel zapped of energy, you feel bloated and lethargic, negative and less confident. It is all there to make you feel less than adequate. However, you can change the way you feel and start to feel good about yourself
You May Change your diet
One of the first things you can consider doing is changing your diet. This is when you consider a more balanced diet, ensuring that you eat the full range of the food groups. What you put into your body is ultimately what you get out of it.
Furthermore, a complete diet change could be on the cards if you feel it will help. People often turn to vegetarianism or even things like a vegan diet which is completely plant based.
There are many things you can consider doing with your diet, and changing it can see you witness improvement to your energy levels, to your skin condition and even the quality of sleep you get.
I have said this before, but i am truly a huge proponent of we are what we eat. I know for me as I developed auto immune problems, that it was going to be food that would make the changes. And within just a short period of time, I was in less pain . And feeling so much more energetic and alive.
That example alone convinced me to be really diligent about what I choose to eat. Because I don’t know about you, but I want to feel good.
Give up alcohol
Alcohol is one of those things that many people enjoy when socializing or relaxing in their home. A small glass of wine here, a bottle of beer there, it can all seem harmless.
While there is nothing wrong with indulging in a few alcoholic beverages here and there, you may find that if it becomes more regular or you feel that you can’t go a day without enjoying a drink, then sober living could be the way forward.
You may start to see mega improvements with your health and lifestyle just by making this simple change.
Start exercising more
Exercising is a great way to ensure that you feel good about yourself. After all, by taking the exercise you get a sudden rush of endorphins which gives you that triumphant and happy feeling.
However, if you are new to exercising on a regular basis then you may find that this is when things can feel difficult and you are less inclined to feel motivated to do it. Start off small, by just making the decision to be a little more active.
This might mean walking somewhere or joining a gym perhaps.
For me, walking is my go to comfort. I do at least 2-3 walks per day. It relaxes my body and I also feel stronger and more capable. And the best part, is that it clears my head. Does that happen for you?
Also trying tai chi can make a huge difference too to when I feel good myself.
Focus on your mindset
Finally, focus on your mindset. This is the biggest tool you have and the mind is powerful. It can hinder your chances of doing anything such as changing your lifestyle or exercising due to a negative thought process.
Work on your mind by focusing on positive thinking and feeling grateful for all the things you have going well in your life. It can make a huge difference to how you feel and can even be the one change that has the most impact. To feel good myself I know that I have to focus on gratitude.
And realize we are not our thoughts. They are just what pop around in our periphery. We do not have to give them credence or time. When we are in our thoughts we are not living in our hearts. And for real change to come we have to switch gears and conscious awareness.
Here are some options to help change our thinking.
I hope that these tips help you to start feeling good about yourself.
As we go through this thing called life, we are made aware of what things are going to be needing more attention and change. When we decide we need change, many times it may be our diet, our need for exercise or changing our mindset. So knowing that we can make these changes will impact when I feel good myself.
When we feel good about ourselves, incredible changes happen. We feel more vibrant, alive and ready to truly fall in love with our lives.
