Suggestions for a Positive Lifestyle
by Crystal Morris
Mindful Thinking (Positive-Well-being): Practicing mindful thinking helps with letting go of unhealthy thoughts and emotions by focusing on the things that matter the most. The best way for mindful thinking to become habit is by forming a regular routine of some form of meditation such as journaling, playing an instrument or drawing/painting.
Loving Kindness ( Relationships): Kindness reduces stress, boost our immune system and helps reduce anger, anxiety, depression. Showing loving kindness involves noticing thoughts that are not so kind and changing them to view others through a lens of kindness. Send love to others, a simple thought can do this. Write a note or call someone just to say “I love you”.
Gratitude for Others (Gratitude): Focus on the people in your lives by showing gratitude. Gratitude decreases anxiety and helps us see what is good in the world. Paying it forward feels so good. To do something kind for a stranger can be the sweetest feeling in the world.
No Judgement (Wisdom): Don’t judge yourself and don’t judge others. When we are judging ourselves or others we are not doing it in the act of kindness. Focus on the present.
Accepting/Loving Yourself(Self-Worth/Happiness): When we accept ourselves, we learn to stop avoiding, denying, and struggling with our inner emotions. Teach others how to treat you by telling yourself you're beautiful. Happiness is within. Fall in love with taking care of yourself, mind, body, and spirit
Self-care (Positive Well-being): Self-care is about finding balance in your life in the areas of physical, emotional, social and spiritual. It enhances mental toughness and awakens your creativity. Journal, rest, meet someone new, or meditate to find balance.
You are not your emotions (Anger): He who Angers you conquers you. Dismiss it. Express anger in a healthy way by using “I” statements. Let it roll down the highest waterfall back into the river of distractions.
Self-Care: Tips To Show Yourself Love
by Abeni C. Scott
Self-care starts with loving yourself and putting yourself first. Often times, we take on the responsibility of others and their problems, forgetting about ourselves and making their issues our burdens. Here is a list of things you can do to honor yourself and begin your self-care/self-love journey.
Make a list of what loving yourself looks like.
How did you love yourself today?
Write yourself a love song?
Look in the mirror and tell yourself “I love you” everyday.
Plan something special for you this week.
Tell yourself you are proud of you everyday.
Plan a vacation where you would take yourself alone.
Notice who doesn’t add value to your self love. Heal or release yourself from that relationship.
Determine a quote that compliments your self love.
Wake up 10 minutes early and write down how you will love yourself that day.
11 Tips For A Healthy Relationship
by Purple Lotus Coaching Services / Innovative Occupational Therapy
Establishing healthy relationships take work and intentional effort. Below are a few suggestions for creating a healthy relationship.
Know what you are desiring to gain within the connection /relationship with that person.
Have your own goals.
SET BOUNDARIES and Respect the other participant boundaries.
When boundaries are crossed learn to approach them using an assertive approach.
Be open to receiving how the person perceive the information, event, incident, etc.
Empathically relay the true intent of your message, interaction, etc.
Be willing to compromise. (disagreements are not meant to be won but to bring understanding, common ground).
Be willing to commit to building a healthy relationship (if it is one sided- it won’t work).
Be knowledgeable / bold, knowing when to end an unhealthy relationship. Especially if it is causing you stress, sleepless nights, decreased productivity, etc.
Become aware, learn to trust your gut. This may take some training and time as most people confuse this with obsessing over the fact you feel the person is not trustworthy due to past pain that is unhealed or mental thoughts that are not 100% factual. Learning to utilize the gut trust exercise takes some spiritual awareness that can be learned through coaching, counseling, etc.
Be open to the journey of the relationship. It may not be all that you imagined, or it may. In all be accepting of the lessons learned / obtained along the way.
