Take your awareness one step further and start to observe the thoughts you are having. Is it positive or negative? Is it helpful in making you feel better or keep you stuck in a victim mentality? If your thought is not helping, replace it with something that serves you better.
Another way to choose feeling good unconditionally is to become mindful of how you communicate with yourself and others. The words we use can have a huge impact on how we feel, both physically and emotionally. Use kind language when speaking to yourself and others, be conscious of the tone of voice you use, and focus on communicating from a place of understanding instead of judgement. This self-awareness and communication style can help create a foundation for feeling good, no matter the circumstance.
Finally, take moments throughout your day to practice gratitude. Gratitude is a powerful tool that can instantly shift your mindset and balance out any negative feelings you may be experiencing. Make a list of all the things you are grateful for or take some time to simply sit quietly and reflect on all the blessings in your life. Let these simple acts be reminders that there is so much to appreciate even when times get tough.
By making an intentional effort to choose feeling good unconditionally every day, you’ll start to have more control over how you feel and handle difficult situations with less stress and frustration.
