How do you feel about yourself? Are you connecting how you feel with your grades in school, or the credentials and degrees you do or do not have? Is your confidence tied to financial success or the material possessions you own or wish you had? Meeting life’s challenges without feeling victimized, and taking self responsibility is a choice you have the power to make.
Understanding how your brain works can help you to understand the negative beliefs you have about yourself and why. How you think about yourself is directly related to your beliefs. The good news is negative thoughts and negative beliefs can be changed! With practice, you can create new pathways in your brain that create new, positive thoughts.
These are busy days. You know the kind of days. The ones that fly by and when you finally stop it feels like a you are still moving. On these kinds of days, it can feel like there is no end to the rushing around.
Take just one moment to stop and breathe and notice the effect. Sometimes we are called upon to be consistently responsive to others needs – at home, at work, in our communities. It is at these times that we need to take care of ourselves most.
Hungry? Eat healthy.
Angry or Anxious? Stop, step back, breathe, take inventory. Connect and tune in to yourself.
Lonely? reach out to the supportive and healthy people, places and things in your life.
