Total-Body Benefits of Love Handles & Side Booty Shred Workout
Creating an Inner Strength : If you want to increase your ability to listen to your Inner Strength then you will need to work on staying present in the moment. Mindfulness is a great way to allow yourself to respond, instead of react to the events in your life. When you take a moment and ponder how you want to react to a situation, you are then tapping into your Inner Strength. By practicing mindfulness meditation on a regular basis you will improve your ability to hear your Inner strength. When you stay focused on the present moment you disable the critical part of your mind. In the present there is nothing to worry about and there is nothing to feel guilty about in the past either.
The only thing on your mind will be 'What is the next best decision I can make?' Following your inner voice and being yourself, is the key to finding and building your Inner Strength. The path is not always going to be the easiest, but it will always be the most fulfilling. Find your Inner Strength and be courageous enough to let it shine.
Finding Your Inner Strength : Discover your purpose, as this is a component of Inner Strength. Turn your shoulds into musts, as a must is something that you simply cannot live without doing. Let go of the past and stop feeding yourself disempowering stories of past mistakes and failures.
7 simple practices that will help you build your Inner Strength
- Practice self-awareness, this is the first step in building Inner Strength
- Listen to your body
- Discover your talents
- Invest in your skills
- Spend time with like-minded people
- Open yourself to new experiences
- Be patient
Dealing with Negativity : It can be difficult to find good in a person who is radiating negative comments, especially if that negativity is directed towards you! Remember that we don’t know what others are struggling with inside. Often, negativity towards others results from a toxicity or negativity that the individual is dealing with personally. Other times, a person may be having a tough time in other areas of his or her life, which could be temporary in nature. Try to show compassion and focus on the person’s positive points. While their negative behaviours may or may not go away over time, it will help you stay focused on positive things.
Treat Others the Way You Would Like to Be Treated! They don’t call it the Golden Rule for nothing. By treating others the way you want to be treated and modelling the positive traits that you would like to see in others, you can have a positive effect on the negative people in your life. Often your behaviour will rub off on others. At a minimum, you will avoid being negative yourself.
Negativity can wear on even the most positive person over time. By keeping your life in balance, you are better equipped to handle the negative comments or situations that come your way. Exercise, meditation or other enjoyable activities can help you relax and stay balanced. Hobbies can also be a great way to meet new people and engage your mind in an activity that is enjoyable and often therapeutic. By submerging yourself in something you enjoy on a regular basis, you are better equipped to handle the negative vibes and issues that you encounter as you go through life.
Don't judge someone in that moment of time. People make mistakes and we don't always know what is going on in their lives. Judge people over a decade and this will be a big mindset change! Avoid judging yourself and others, often we unconsciously judge ourselves and others throughout the course of the day. By letting go of the judgements we are making and replacing them with positive thoughts or judgements, we are setting ourselves free of negative thinking.
Show gratitude for the blessings and strengths you have, there is little room to be dissatisfied, envious or resentful of others. It automatically shifts our thinking to the positive aspects of our lives. Consider creating a gratitude journal and review/add to it often to help you stay focused. This will help you find gratitude and satisfaction in your own life.
Don’t complain as no one really wants to hear it and it won’t help you feel better. Take action to fix things you are unhappy with instead of griping about them.
What else can you do to feel more positive?
- Focus on what you are feeling right now. If you're sad, feel the sadness.
- Share your feelings with someone close to you. Everyone has negative thoughts from time to time.
- Do something nice for yourself
- Take time to count your blessings
- Eat well
- Make social connections
