Sometimes in life, we go through rough times. It’s something that we can’t avoid. When life slaps you in the face, it’s really good to have some tools in your back pocket to be able to punch it back in the gut. When we’re in that state, we often can’t think clearly and it affects our whole life so here are 3 steps you can take to get out of that rut, stay strong and bring up your emotional energy.
When we’re down in the dumps it’s so hard to tell what our head versus our heart is saying. You can’t see clearly from that state. So a good way to do it if you need a question answered or if you’re needing some guidance, is to choose a best friend or family member in your mind and ask yourself “what would I tell them to do in this situation”. When you take yourself out of the situation and look at it from that point of view, you can see a lot more clear.
Calming your mind is a really good idea when you’re emotionally drained. Sit down in a relaxing position with your spine straight and just focus on your breath. You can light a candle and play some music if you want. If you can calm your mind and just focus on the breath for even 10 minutes it will help a lot.
As easy as it is to wallow in self-pity and play the victim, even if it’s legit, it doesn’t get you anywhere. The sooner you accept reality, the sooner you will be able to move forward and work through the situation from a clear standpoint. It helps you manage your thoughts and take charge of your emotions which will then make you more productive. And then you can find solutions to the problem faster! Ask yourself “What’s one thing I can do right now that will help me?” And then take action.
