Do you wish you could feel awesome all the time?
Someone asked me this the other day…
The answer is this… you can’t. I used to have that unrealistic expectation of myself!
We’re all human beings. I am, however, going to share a couple of points to get your psychology working for you.
What is psychology?
Psychology is the ongoing thought processes consciously and subconsciously in your mind. People talk about mindset. Mindset is more about your attitude towards something specific, but if you don’t have the right psychology to support it your mindset will struggle.
So here are a couple of pointers:
Sit with your feelings
If you don’t acknowledge bad feelings and the blockers they will only build up. So therefore try to find at least 5 minutes a day to sit in silence. I personally do a Gabby Bernstein meditation where I do breathing with spiritual guidance music and then write for 5 minutes after. It allows me to acknowledge my feelings and work through them.
Start looking at what makes you feel great
If you don’t acknowledge challenges you won’t allow yourself to release them, they will remain stored. So that’s the first part, the other part here is to start incorporating what makes you feel great. If you have a day full of things you hate, how do you expect to feel amazing the majority of the time? The mistake I see a lot and I’ve been there, is people will do things they think they ‘should’ do. Yet they don’t make them happier. List as many things that make you feel great and look to incorporate them into your routine. Do you still have to do the more challenging things? Well of course from time to time but make feeling good a priority.
Nobody can feel amazing 100% of the time. I used to expect and want that and got annoyed when that didn’t happen. Focus on feeling amazing but acknowledge it when you don’t feel so great and check in with yourself.
You got this!
Thank you for reading.
