Five Tips to Boost Your Morale

March 14, 2020 0 By April Kirkwood

It is easy to let life get on top of you, and allow negative thoughts and feelings to take over. While this happens to everyone at one time or another, for some it can become a constant state of mind. When this happens, it starts to impact on all aspects of a person’s life and turns into a vicious cycle of low self-esteem, depression and lack of motivation. 

It is easy for people to tell you to ‘think positively’ when putting that into practice can be much harder than it seems. However, this simple change in thinking could really turn things around. 

Here are some tips on how you can start to think more positively, and generally feel better within yourself. 

Positive Affirmations

It is difficult to believe that you have positive traits if you’re not talking about them. Write a list of all the things you like about yourself, both physical qualities and your personality traits. Each morning read out the list and remind yourself about these great assets you have as a person. If you’re struggling to find things to write down, ask a friend to tell you what they like about you and write those things down instead. 

Diet

Our physical appearance commonly has an effect on how we feel about ourselves. If you are feeling unattractive, you are likely to suffer from low confidence and self-esteem. Not only this but if your body isn’t getting the right nutrition you can suffer from fatigue and other health issues that will get you down. Consider your current eating habits and see if you can make a change. 

Exercise 

Just like your diet, not getting enough physical exercise could be another contributing factor to your low mood. Not only will exercise get you into shape, but it will release more endorphins in your brain, which help to promote feelings of happiness and contentment. 

Medication

Sometimes, all of the above isn’t quite enough to remedy those negative feelings. If you find that you’re feeling low for an extended period of time, then you might need to discuss the matter with your doctor. They can provide advice on medication and therapies available to you that might be better suited to your needs. If you want to try a home remedy, medicinal marijuana could be an option for you. You can find cbd hemp seeds for sale, and grow your own, but look into licensing laws before you do this. 

Mindfulness 

Life is hectic and stressful; this is an unavoidable fact. This is why it is important to make sure that you are making time to relax. Taking 10 minutes out of your day to meditate, having a hot bath or simply listening to some soothing music is necessary to help you calm your mind. 

Everyone gets down from time to time, try these tips to see if you can feel better. And remember, there is no shame in asking for help in your time of need.
