We’ve all had those days where we just wake up on the right side of the bed, and everything seems beautiful, great, and positive. And, we’ve also all had those days when we got up on the wrong side of the bed, and things ended up seeming just the opposite way.
Life, at its best, should be beautiful and uplifting. We should generally feel good, appreciate our surroundings, and be happy to greet each day and embrace the challenges it contains.
Here are a few tips for making everyday life more beautiful and uplifting.
Be more mindful, and avoid overcrowding your attention.
Do you constantly try to multitask, or else make sure that there is some background noise at all times?
Bad news: research has found that multitasking causes increased levels of stress, lower performance at whatever tasks you happen to be working on, and a greater sense of emotional discomfort.
By the same token, constantly overcrowding your attention is bound to make you stressed, and to put you in a situation where you just aren’t able to properly calm and balance your thoughts, and pay attention to the good things that are right in front of you.
As a famous psychological experiment demonstrated, people can be so blind to their surroundings when they are distracted, that a man in a gorilla costume can literally step up right in front of them, and they often won’t notice.
It should be easy to see, then, that overcrowding your attention can make it just about impossible to notice and appreciate the blessings that you have in front of you in everyday life.
Be more mindful. Focus on one thing at a time. And reduce the background noise.
Take steps to confront your insecurities & issues.
If you have a lot of insecurities and issues that you constantly ignore and push to the back of your mind, you should know that there are likely to be some pretty unfortunate side-effects of that.
For one thing, you’re not “getting rid” of those issues. Deep down, you’ll still be stressed and upset about them. You just won’t know why you feel that way.
It can definitely be difficult to do, but you should list out and take steps to confront your insecurities and issues. That might mean looking into Kitto Plastic Surgery in an extreme case, or just getting around to tidying your home or responding to a difficult email.
Take good care of your health.
AND don’t let things like nutrient deficiencies or lack of sleep bring you down.
You could be in a situation where just about everything in your life seems to be good, from an objective perspective, but where you still feel more or less awful, for no clear reason.
Often, this kind of sensation can have something to do with underlying health problems – including nutrient deficiencies which are extremely common, and can be extremely destructive.
Always take good care of your health. Get chronic symptoms checked out, take vitamins and minerals, eat well, and get plenty of sleep.
There’s no reason to let these sorts of issues bring you down when they can be dealt with.
