#MondayMotivation…Tips To Beating Depression

➡️Everyone has days when they are down, worn out, and just not feeling all that happy.
That’s 🆗 you need to have days like this, otherwise, how would you know when you are happy. You need to have something to contrast your happiness with. What is black without white?

Even though you know that sadness is a part of life, let’s try to make it a small piece of life.
With that being said, here are a few tips to help you feel better when you are feeling down in the dumps. They are easy to do, easy to practice every day and they work!

1️⃣ Stand up straight, sit up straight. When your body is in alignment, your energy can flow, and when your energy is flowing freely, you can stream.

2️⃣ Smile! Yes, just smile. Easy to do and effective.😁

3️⃣ Repeat positive affirmations. Things like “I feel good,” “Positive energy flows through my body,” “I see the good in all.”

4️⃣ Listen to some music that you like. It doesn’t have to be anything specific, just something you enjoy. Certain types of music work better than others, but experiment and see what works for you. Studies have shown that Classical music and new age music work best.💃🏾

5️⃣ Take some time out for yourself, relax, and read a book, do something for yourself.

6️⃣ Meditate. Meditation is an excellent habit to develop. It will serve you in all that you do. If you are one who has a hard time sitting still, then try some special meditation podcasts that coax your brain into the meditative state. Just search for “Meditation music” on Google or Yahoo and explore.

▪️Our outside work is simply a reflection of our inside world. Remember, there is no reality, just your perception of it. Use this truth to your advantage. Whenever you are sad, realize that it is all in your mind, and you do have the power to change your perception.

▪️These tips will lift you when you are down, but don’t just use them when you are sad. Try and practice them every day; make them a habit. You will be surprised at how these simple exercises will keep the rainy days away.

▪️On a final note, if you are in a deep depression that you can’t seem to shake, please see a doctor. This is your life and doesn’t take any chances…
