LIVING

just by doing that, holy cow! Let's do

it! Let's do it every day!

5. Try a different

perspective

Take a moment to think about your

own thoughts. Are they happy or sad?

Positive or negative? Do they lift you

up or bring you down? Our thoughts

are powerful and can have a big effect

on how we feel. How we feed our

minds is just as important as the way

we nourish our bodies, and we can

select our thoughts the same way we

would choose from a menu. Would

you order something if you knew it

wasn't going to make you feel good?

But you should also honour your

feelings. This is not about trying to be

artificially happy. Our feelings provide

us with valuable information about

our needs and desires and whether or

not we're in alignment with ourselves

and our values. And that means they

need to be acknowledged.

It's a bit like the childhood game

of hot and cold. The closer you are

to being on track with the truth of

who you are, the better you feel. The

further away you get, the worse you

feel. Once you've acknowledged your

feelings, how you react to them is

governed by your thoughts, and that's

what I want you to focus on today.

You have the power to choose the

way you think about a situation, no

matter what the circumstances. And

in day-to-day life that means making

choices that reflect your values and

supports your dreams. With practice,

you'll develop a skill that will become

second nature to you. Then the sky's

the limit!

6. Use positive affirmations

There lots of positive affirmations

on the internet but choose them

carefully and change them so they

fit you and what you want and need.

Just repeating an affirmation with

no feelings attached will do nothing.

Think about what you want and make

that your affirmation.

This can feel a bit odd at first

but stick with it and you'll reap the

benefits. Start with 2 and work up

to 10! Using positive phrases will

challenge any negative thoughts

and can be an amazing weapon for a

better life.

7. Be kind to yourself

Rebuilding and improving your

confidence after a tough lockdown

may take time so be kind to yourself

and cut yourself some slack. If your

life was very busy and stressful before

lockdown it may be a good time now

to take stock and decide what is

serving you and what not.

As life slowly returns to normal,

we have a unique opportunity to

consider the lessons we have learnt

about our pace of life and wellbeing.

Make time for rest and recovery,

surround yourself with a supportive

network of friends and do not be hard

on yourself if you find it difficult to

get back into a routine.
