Watch your thoughts; they become words. Watch your words; they become actions. Watch your actions; they become habits. Watch your habits; they become character. Watch your character; it becomes your destiny.Lao-Tze
In order to create a better life, one needs to recognize willingness to flex and ultimately CHANGE!
1.Change your outlook
We all have a certain attitude about life. Usually, the glass is half full or empty or worse of all broken…
However, making a conscious effort to stop yourself amidst the daily ‘life disasters’ is a useful ability. Basically whenever any negative thought appears on your mind be it criticism or judgment of others or you get too stressed emotionally to the point of attacking others or crying – just STOP YOURSELF- and take a breath instead of any harsh regretful action. Observe the triggers to work on awareness of your negative thoughts… Observe what happens when you make a conscious effort to see circumstances differently. See the magic when you step back, take a moment, and respond with openness and kindness. Remember :
2. Practice gratitude and forgiveness
Forgiveness does not mean tolerating or accepting ay bad behaviors of others but letting go of any anger and bitterness towards the person who hurt us. Many cancer survivors highlight how important it is to be in control of one’s emotions – as anger, resentment, and frustration often lead to cancer development ;-(
3. Get rid of negative feelings
Watching out for triggers of emotional support is super important. Deepak Chopra one of the alternative medicine advocate suggest releasing any bad emotions when focusing on the pain one feels. Breathing in and out should help you release the tension and pain you feel. An excellent way of releasing any negative feelings is when meditating.
Encourage joy in your life by using daily affirmations. Maybe it will be good to get a calendar with daily affirmations? To me, the mother of affirmations is Louise Hay. She was an extraordinary lady, charismatic and motivational. In her book ‘ You can heal your life‘ Louise explains how our beliefs and ideas about ourselves are often the cause of our emotional problems and physical problems and how, by using particular tools, we can change our thinking and our lives for the better. She is an inspiration also to cancer patients as she overcame cervical cancer using natural methods. Check out a guided meditation from Louise.
Once emotionally stronger look into focusing on your healthy eating, exercise and bettering yourself on any other level 🙂
