The feeling of being stuck in a rot isn’t that far-fetched with the way life seems to move so fast. Change being as constant as it is, even the happiest people can sometimes feel a phase of stagnancy. This might be a reality (which should then be dealt with) or it could be as a result of unrealistic expectations from ourselves. Click here to watch the video where this shot below is from.
Recently, I’d been feeling the same way, so I took charge immediately and applied to volunteer. Got the role and can’t explain how good I felt after window-dressing 4 mannequins on my first day. Getting ready to leave my house this morning and decided to share some other ways to to stimulate your personal growth;
1. Know yourself
Knowing your likes and dislikes will help you make good choices on how you spend your time
Your closet, your house, your mind an the people your soureound yourself with. Lose what drains you with no benefit.
3. Make someone happy
If you can achieve this on a daily basis it will go a long way at making you feel better about yourself. A simple act of kindness or generousity can change someone’s day or perception on life in a good way.
4. Get/Find a new hobby
5. Use social media in a fresh way.
Ask questions say what’s on your mind. Respond to people. Twitter is a good space for great talks, witty responses and thoughtful posts. Engage in the food stuff and avoid negative vibes, ignore of you must.
6. Avoid comparison
Just never forget that people show you what they want you to see. It’s all controlled. I could be crying 😢 and really down but @meyrogypsie would still be dishing out positive and happy posts. It’s all controlled. You are only setting yourself up of you’re feeling bad that you aren’t doing as good as ‘others’. Go at your own pace.
7. Have me-time..
Read a Book..listen to music..do stuff that engages you with yourself and thoughts. (Junk Tv aka YouTube helps me..lol) ot making funny videos like this one.
8. Write down
If you see something that inspires you, save the photos, pen your thoughts whatever. I use my notepad a lot with headings so I could easily search later.
9. Your response!
You are only as bothered about a situation as you make yourself. The other day, my landlord called saying something about one of my flatmates.. I almost let it annoy me but I was like, ‘Steph this is crap…pfftt’ I pushed it at the back of my mind as really it was going to change nothing and forgot about it. Instead of worrying, thinking of a next line of attack, do what you want I’d there are no valid repercussions.
Wish I could make this up to 10, but 🤷🏻♀️ . Just stay cool, happy, and around positive people. Look at benefits of situations, MOVE ON to the solution of a problem.
