Letting Go of Things Helps Healing Old Wounds

We sometimes find ourselves in a place in our life that prevents growth. It might not have a dramatic impact on our overall wellbeing, but it certainly manifests in particular areas of our lives.

Have a look at relationships that left you a strong negative impression. Regardless of who was right and who was wrong, now is a good time let go of it. By allowing negative feelings to persist, you’re giving power to people who might no longer be part of your life. Choose to let go for your own wellbeing.

How to Manage Social Isolation

Working from home, being housebound due to health conditions or self-isolation to meet deadlines can cause strain on our emotional wellbeing. Our lives get enriched through human interaction and the lack of it might go unnoticed only for that long.

One of the main issues with not changing the environment we are in is that we don’t realize how fast time passes. Losing track of time doing things that don’t benefit us is worse if we have no one around to look for advice or get support from.

Here are some tips to help you make the most out of the time that you need to spend on your on:

  • set the top two priorities for the day
  • create a plan of how to meet them
  • reward yourself with human interaction – plan a call or text/email someone
  • plan a short exercise routine
  • create a ‘feeling low kit’ with all the essentials and set a timer on how long you’re allowing yourself to feel low for

Even when we choose loneliness, it can be daunting. Reach out to people, check in on them and open up as much as you feel comfortable. The conversation around mental health has only just started and social isolation goes beyond the statistics.

Help Your Body Overcome Tiredness

Feeling sleepy and lacking energy can be reflective of our mental and emotional wellbeing, our diet or of how active we are.

Apathy is a sign that we need a change in our life and if we don’t know what or how to change our circumstances, it’s a sign that we need to ask for help. Our diet can slow us down or increase our chances of success.

The irony comes with being active. The more we engage in physical activities, the more effort we can put in. By increasing our endurance we give ourselves a chance to feeling healthier. Exercise and depression don’t see eye to eye and although it’s not always easy going for a walk or doing an exercise routine, it definitely help us overcome tiredness.

By working out we get more restful sleep. That perfect holiday you envision where you don’t get to leave the bed for a whole week is not design to make anyone happy but the hotel owner.

Own up to your choices, put in gradual, constant effort and rip off gradual, constant benefits.
