Feeling Good Mentally

things learnt from women in business on www.majeang.com

It seems as though this year is flying by so quickly! We’re almost to the end of June and I’m hoping that we actually do get some kind of real summer. Anyway, I wanted to talk about the things that leave me feeling good mentally. You might be wondering, what am I talking about but stick with me and I’ll explain 😉

Have you ever fallen into a funk in the midst of a project? I know I have! Or your skin just isn’t popping the way you want it too? I raise my hand. We all have those days when you’re in a slump or just feeling sluggish but, there are things that you do that leave you feeling good mentally. So today I am sharing with you what helps me.

Feeling good mentally, smiling on www.majeang.com

Engage my brain

For me this is about taking the focus off of what has me in a slump and immersing myself (temporarily) in a good book or, a funny show. By shifting your focus on something that excites you, in a good way, helps to refill your feel good tank. When you start feeling good, you are in a better position to deal with whatever (or whoever) has you in a slump.

Be Quiet

Sometimes when there’s too much going on, my mind is swirling it can be overwhelming and I can be in a mental fog. Feeling this way can prevent me from making a decision and miss out on opportunities. What has been helpful for me, is to retreat and be quiet. A few minutes of slowing down my thoughts, breathing, maybe meditating or praying and I’m able to feel more at peace. This is such a good feeling!

Talk to positive friends

You know that saying your parents used to dish out, about show me your friends and I’ll show you who you are? Well they were right! (sssshhh don’t let them know ;)) If your 5 closest friends have a positive, yet realistic outlook on life, trust me so will you! We rub off on each other because it’s infectious! It makes it easier for you to feel good mentally after speaking to a positive friend because they can help you put things into perspective. So call them up or, arrange to meet up.

Do a creative activity

When I started blogging, I needed to learn how to take decent photos. Along the way I noticed that I really enjoyed the process of capturing an angle, that I had in my head and seeing it come to life. Doing something creative, that you enjoy helps you to feel good and you continuously develop all sorts of skills.

Those are my 4 tips that I use to help me feel good mentally, because when you feel good mentally life has a bit more oomf!

Let me know in the comments below, if you do any of the tips above or share your way of feeling good mentally.

    Great post. Totally agree with talking to positive friends. After getting into reading blogs I realized that’s where my positive friends are. It’s so uplifting to read those blogs then to jump on fb and see a lot of people constantly complaining about life.

    Great post Majeang! Talking positive to your friends is sooooo important. If I am telling my friends something about a recent trip I took – I share a good story and a bad story… guess which ones they probably will remember – the bad story. So I have made a more conscious effort to turn a bad situation into a good/funny situation. It has made such a difference.

    Great post! I think being quiet is definitely important to me if I am having one of those days. Curl up with a good book and forget the world for a little bit 🙂
