There is nothing worse than waking up early in the morning and not wanting to get out of bed. You have a thriving career, loving family and bubbly friends but none of that pushes the button to make you gleefully jump up to get your day started. You hit the snooze button two times already. Then you lay there staring at the ceiling fan spin while dreading the start of the day.
According to the University of California, “Emotional wellness implies the ability to be aware of and accept our feelings, rather than deny them, have an optimistic approach to life and enjoy life despite its occasional disappointments and frustrations”. Lying in bed for thirty extra minutes morning after morning solves nothing. What essential elements are needed to motivate you to rise and shine?
Essential Tool #1
Evaluate emotional wellness. Ask yourself, “Is my life style working for me?” You should not spend too much attention to any one area of your life. Spread your time between work, family, you, leisure and whatever other arenas you may partake in. Sometimes there are exceptions to the rule and you may need to spend more time doing one activity versus another. Do not get overwhelmed with trying to leverage out your life.
Essential Tool #2
Do not wallow in pity. Use positive thoughts and events to give you the mental boost in your mood. When something causes an emotional setback in motivation, to proceed use something upbeat such as an energizing song, a joke or watch a comedy show. it only takes a few minutes to snap back from a distressful moment.
Essential Tool #3
My #1 favorite way to improve emotional wellness is through talking it out. A trusted friend can lend a caring ear that is often beneficial in lifting emotional burdens. Confiding in a professional therapist provides an in-depth analysis when self- assessments or peer support does not render the effect of an enlightened mood.
The trials and tribulations experienced on a daily basis makes it hard to see the reasons to relax and enjoy the positive experiences. Mentally, life can drain the joy when not in touch with emotions, thoughts and feelings. The good news is that daily life does not have to drain your emotional energy.
