How To Deal With A Bad Day..

Every day when we wake up..we open our eyes we thank Almighty for an another day.A day with a new hope ..a day with a new prospective. But those gloomy days when you just want to be alone or want to hide yourself from everyone,are really tough to deal with.

To end your bad day with a good note need little effort from you.Here are some ways to deal with a real bad day.

1.Uplift yourself with a smile.

I know there is no switch to off the negativity at a moment. But there is a beautiful thing to welcome positivity.That is your smile. The curve in your face is the most beautiful thing you can wear. You don’t need to pay a penny to wear this most expensive attiare. The magic of a smile can uplift your mind anywhere you need.So wear a smile to do magic.

2.Change your mind with opposite thinking.

Opposite thinking,is a constructive way to get rid of worries.This simple technique can do magic in your life.This is nothing but a simple exercise to create a positive mindset.

As soon as you feel sad,take a deep breathe and find out the cause of your sadness.If you really want to change your mood just do the opposite of it. Do those things,what you do in a  happy mood.For first few attempt you may feel awkward but everything depends on our desire. Desire, to change the mindset;desire, to feel good.That morning when nasty feelings occupy your mind, say repeatedly to yourself , “It is a beautiful day”.Thus you start to feel good with thinking opposite what you feel. Because your brain starts to feel the day really beautiful.

3.Take a Good meal.

A good meal can make you feel good.For that choose your favourite one.Give a treat to you with a happy meal.I remember,in my childhood my father used to bring my favourite sweets when I fall in sick. That ‘meal therapy'(according to me it’s a therapy) was really magical.Now I also apply this ‘therapy’.

3.Rearrange your room.

This is a fantastic idea to get rid of negative feelings.When you pay attention to rearrange your room or home your mind starts to feel good.Decorating furnitures or room is an art.Do something creative to get out of a crummy day.

5.Nothing is permanent.

No matter how happy you are in your life but there is always a bad day in your way which you really don’t want to bear.But the truth is that there is nothing permanent,even your bad day.So think positive.

6.Write down your feelings.

Well,there is nothing serious but writing your feelings in your diary or anywhere will let your mind feel free from the discomfort.Sometime when I really feel stressful and fusrated I write all my feelings in a page and then I burn it. With this technique I feel relaxed from those negative thoughts.

Conclusion

Remember everything happens for a cause and there is always a scope to learn from every situation.Your bad day comes to teach you some lessons and makes you stronger than earlier. So don’t blame on it.Face your bad day with a never give up attitude and follow the above ways which are extremly helpful for me and hope will help you too.I will be glad to hear from you how you face your bad days.

You can become blind by seeing each day as a similar one.Each day is a different one;each day brings a miracle of its own.It’s just a matter of paying attention to this miracle.”

-Paulo Coelho.

Life Lesson I Learned In 2020:

What happened in this 2020 never seen before.Whole world had stuck. Actually the year 2020 is like a roller coaster ride. Lots of ups and downs have seen.

We always welcome new years with lots of resolutions,expectations and we set targets too. In terms of health,wealth,relations and many more. But the 2020 taught me that we can not predict the tomorrow. Yes.

Who thought that the year started with all time high economy in stock market will face such a crisis within a couple of months. Most countries shut down their economy in such a unprecedented way.

Unpredictable things started to happen.Large numbers of people lost their job…suffering terrible situations and as a result depression,drug ovrdose,suicides skyrocketed.

Yes..2020 has created history. Despite of so many negativities we are still in a hope..our normal life will come back very soon.

So many things happened in this year 2020. I was so worried about my family and about our future. Felt like a Demon is going to overwhelmed us.Like we are going to see the end of humanity. Because everywhere God’s creation is losing their moral..

But still some positivity standing by our side. We cried..we fought and we learned.

I feel it is a total waste if I can not learn from this crucial situation. Every situation of this pandemic has taught me new lessons.Here are my learnings…

See the brighter side. Yes.. if you can not see the brighter side you can not stay positive.

Health is wealth. Though I know it but I realized in this 2020 that your biggest asset is your health.

Boost your immunity. The most important thing to do with our health is boost immunity. To fight with your enemy stay strong and build strength.

Feed your mind with positivity because mental health matters. Read books,keep journal,practise gratitude.

Family comes first.All I was trying to keep safe my family by taking utmost care.

Luxury doesn’t mean show off. Luxury means spending time with your near and dear one.

Don’t consume over.We need very few things to live happily.So, embrace minimalism. It does not mean less ;it means simplicity .

Love nature. We must know that what we did to the nature over and over was harming our enviroment.

Nature can heal itself. The whole pandemic situation had a great impact on nature. Clean rivers,beaches,green trees,clean air all had proved that nature has healing power.

Your financial condition matters a lot. What we do to make our living should be more strong. Because you need a financial support any time.

Be kind.Value others labour.Don’t lose your moral value.

However the year is going to end up. But hopes should not die.Always hope for the best. Hope has the power to keep you alive.

Nothing is permanent.This tough time will also pass. Though it is not so easy to stay positive at this crisis but we don’t have any other option. Don’t spread hatred .Spread love and be strong.

Prace of mind depends on you.

You are somone special.

God never creates anything useless.

Stop complaining and count your

blessings. Do not waste your time in

moaning and groaning. Universe

wants to give you

more ;so never close the door. The

How to overcome fear of failure.

Most of the time in our life when we have to start something new or when we need to change something, the fear of failure always push us to back foot. We even do not try for once.

This is true that fear of failure varies person to person. But some similarities among them you can notice are:

1. Lack of confidence.

2. Lack of self esteem

3.Anxiety

4.Over protective.

When we talk about fear of failure,first we should try to understand the term failure. Because failure can not be same for all. Due to different types of belief system, upbringing and values or types of goal settings failure also have different definition for different person.Sometimes from a bitter experience of past holds you to back step.

But failure is not the end. Suppose you failed on your first attempt,what will be your next move? Give up? Choice is yours. You can give up by saying your are less worthy or you can learn from your failure to make your second attempt . Your lesson from your failure can teach you how to grow and how to avoid making the same mistake again.

It is not failure itself that

holds you back ;it is the fear

of failure that parelyzes you’

Brian Tracy

Before your fear of failure paralyze you lets see how can overcome fear of failure.

lnspiration

Lack of inspiration is a cause of fear for failure. You can take inspiration from those great winners who had successfully overcome it. Read those true stories of winners who had learned from their failures.  Learn from their journey.All these things will surely inspire you if you decide to be inspired . Otherwise all inspiration will fed up. Along with others inspirational stories read your mind also.Try to find what is your strength and weakness. Focus on your strength and let your weakness take some rest.

Learn to take Risks.

Like failure the concept of risk varies person to person. 

We often say ,’why should I take risk?’ or ‘ I don’t want to take risk.’ Well..you are not wrong.Because you can not behave irresponsible or you can not  be gambling foolishly to achieve somthing. Success involves taking calculated risk. So you must know the boundaries. You have your own understanding and strength to identify the responsible risks. Because resposible risk taking is based on knowledge and confidence.

Positive thinking

You can choose to be posotive. You can control your thoughts by repeating positivity in your mind. Because if you want  negative results then you can only think negative. Choice is yours. Think honestly what do you want. Because sometime staying negative is more comfortable than staying positive.

Get out of your comfort zone.

Most of the time we feel so uncomfortable when we need to change or start something new. Then we start to hate the change and avoid to get out of our comfort zone. But remember ,this comfort zone is vitamin for your fear. It feeds your fear and your fear become larger than earlier . So break the comfort zone to overcome your fear.

Learn to accept failure.

You need to accept your failure.  If you have tried once and you failed,don’t ran away or don’t blame anyone. Take the responsibility and accept the failure. Because your failure will teach you where you made the mistakes and where you should put your strength
Unless and untill you become wrong you cannot discover the right.

You always pass  failure on your way to success .”

Mickey Roony

Visualisation

If you are now a positive person,you are able to adopt a positive attitude then you need something more to overcome the fear of failure. Because positive thinking alone is not enough. You need to  practise visualisation . Make a clear picture in your mind what you are doing after achieving your goal. Research has shown that visualisation is the effective way to overcome fear of failure.

So you have all basic action steps to overcome your fear Of failure. Next time before you say no to start some where or to do something new ,think for a while. Build positivity , take the resposible risk, break the comfort zone and visualise where you are after achieving your goal. If you fail do not quit. Learn from your mistakes and bounce back.

         “Many of life’s failures are people who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up.”

How to stay productive everyday:

Never underestimate your power to change yourself”

-H.Jackson Brown,Jr

It is very important to have some productivity in our day to day life.Every moment we are spending is a price of our life.When we start our day we start with some new experiences,with some new hopes and if not then you can say our life is in death bed.Without having any productivity in daily life is waste of time and waste of time is waste of life.
So take a pause and think for a while ,”Am I wasting my life or using my time to produce something good?” But to produce something good we need to consume good.It is very important to find out those mistakes for which we are not able to stay productive.
Some reasons for which we are still staying non productive.


1.Laziness
2.Doing boring things every day in same pattern.
3.No proper planning.
4.Maximum use of social media and wasting time.
5.Unable to set priority.
6.Consuming more negative thoughts.
7.Unhealthy diet.
8.lack of physical and mental exercises.


Let’s see how can we stay productive.

Wake up early.

This is for those who usually go to bed very late without a proper reason. There are people who are doing evening shifts or who study whole night or parents who have small kids they must have their own schedule. They may have their own time table but people who don’t have any serious reason they need to make a habit to rise early morning.For that they must go to bed early. This will help them in many ways..when they go to sleep early they will automatically minimize their unnecessary screen time. We can not deny the fact that some gadgets are controlling our lives.
From those gadgets most of the time we are knowingly or unknowingly consuming lots of negativities .When we cut down those negativities we give our mind a room to be quite for a while. If at this point we use our mind in practising positivity then it will surely be a big win for us. In another way when we rise early we get some extra hours in our life.
Also for a good night sleep make habit of early to bed.

Proper planning

It is necessary to wake up with a proper planning for the day. Make a to-do list for the next day.By following the to -do-list you can complete your work on time.

Feed your mind.

You must feed your mind time to time. Feed your mind with positive thoughts and as a result you are going stay happy and full of life.Our brain produces serotonin when we feel happy and this creates well-being. To feed your mind with positive thoughts you can follow two action steps.


1.Make a habit of reading positive stuffs on daily basis.Reading is a fine work out for your mind. There are lots of Motivational books, Biographies and Autbiographies, Novels and Short stories or Articles.You can pick one of them.
2.Listen to motivational audio or podcasts and repeat. This will surely become a part of your life when you listen again and again. Repetition of somthing become a habit easily. You will adopt those positive and inspirational thoughts which will work to produce happiness,positivity and energy.

Stop Procastinating

Do your work on time. Tomorrow never comes. Know the value of time.When you start procastinating your work you make your work more difficult. What you need to do?You just start to do what you have to do and also say to your mind that thos os the only time for this particular work. To avoid procastination you need to avoi distaction also. Between our work we we usually become distracted. To avoid this you must have a strong mindset.You can be distracted by various things. So find out those things which can distract you from your work. For example, you can be distracted by you mobile phone or daily news(which are mostly negative and can upset your mind).So before you complete your task don’t allow these to distractyou. Just say to youself,”I am on my duty. I have no time for other things.”

Work on priority basis.

You must know the importance of your work and must have an idea which one is in tio priority list. Do it as your priority list. Don’t try to be multitaskig when you are doing something really very important. First complete it and then start the next. Otherwise it will become messy

Take healthy diet and do exercises

This is one of the most important thing to stay productive. Our health is the key of every lock. To open the lock You must have the key which means u need to stay healthy and fit. Physical strength mostly depends on our healthy diet and proper exercise .
So stay fit,stay healthy. Avoid consumption of unhealthy food. Avoid consumption of Alchol.
