When you feel awful and lost in despair

On days when you feel awful, when you see nothing but darkness and gloom no matter where you look – don’t look in the mirror so much. Just give yourself a break, give your mind a rest for a day, a week or as long as you need. Focus on other things that are easier to appreciate. Distract yourself as best you can and keep telling yourself that these awful feelings are temporary, you will feel better again. There is nothing you have to do – don’t try to change your negative thinking, just relax, distract and make peace with how you feel.

You are always beautiful, life is always wonderful but sometimes your own insecurity and lackful thinking will cloud your vision. What you see in yourself, in others and in everything that happens is always an accurate reflection of the thoughts you think. Relax, you will feel better again. Let yourself feel awful for a while, it is no big deal.

Give yourself time to listen to the soothing stillness within

On the days when you feel exhausted, give yourself a lot of time to rest mentally. Perhaps you have a lot to do and it is not possible for you to lay down and rest at all during your day, but you can always give yourself a moment here and there where you rest mentally. That is just as beneficial.

Take a moment to close your eyes, take a few deep breaths and listen to the soothing stillness within. Stay in this comforting place of ease for a minute or two and allow your body to relax. Then, gently open your eyes, smile and thank your body for this relaxing moment.

As you move on with your day do so with the intention of being extra kind, loving and gentle with yourself.

When it feels like your world is falling apart ❤

Be kinder to yourself, especially when it feels like all hope is lost. When you are feeling your worst – that is when you need to be the kindest to yourself.

Other people might sooth you temporarily, but lasting soothing comes from within, and only you can do that.

Give yourself some credit, you have survived every day of your life so far – even though it has been very hard at times. You are stronger than you think. It is easy to give up, it is easy to feel sad and broken when everything is falling apart – but it doesn’t make things better!

No matter what happened, you have to realize that you are always doing the best you can, given the beliefs, desires and emotional state you are in. So don’t beat up on yourself over what happened – be kinder to yourself! Sooth yourself! Make peace with your past and your present, see each new moment as a fresh new opportunity for you to feel a little better. What things can you do right now that would bring you relief? Do those things! What soothing words would you love to hear? Say those things to yourself!

Don’t wait for circumstances to change in order for you to feel better, don’t wait for someone to come and rescue you – sooth yourself, and begin right here and right now. ❤

Use your imagination, live out your fantasy and feel better

Take a few moments every day to imagine. Visualize beautiful, relaxing scenarios where you can rest mentally and emotionally. Give yourself the gift of pleasurefilled scenarios that make you feel better.

A few minutes of day dreaming will be a reliefgiving break that can improve not only how you feel but your entire day as well. Try this every day for a week, especially if you are having a hard time right now. Give yourself time to relax, time to enjoy your fantasy. Nothing will improve your life more than caring about how you feel and deliberarely doing something to feel better.

You can do this, you are stronger than you think

Just keep breathing. One step at a time. Some days you just have to sooth yourself into feeling relief. It is ok. You are doing the best you can. Close your eyes and take a deep breath. Stay in that quiet place for a moment and keep breathing deeply.

Don’t give up, there is always a way for life to work out even better than you can imagine. You don’t have to see it right now and you don’t have to understand how – just keep breathing. You are doing better than you think, give yourself a break. You have come this far, and you are still breathing. You can do this.
