Mental Health Awareness Week…Dealing With Depression In The Work Place….

Good day, how many of you work in the business world and have to deal with your depression??? How many of you try to keep it under wraps????๐Ÿคท๐Ÿพโ€โ™€๏ธ

It is not easy to deal with depression and anxiety in the business world. Getting help from a professional should be the first thing you do if you deal with depression. Many companies nowadays have different programs for their employees. Talk to your Human Resources Representative on a confidential basis and ask if your employer has any such programs.

If your place of work doesnโ€™t have any programs then ask your doctor or local mental health clinic. Help is available if you look hard enough.

With the help of a professional, evaluate the source of your depression. Knowing what is causing your depression can go a long way. Once you know why you are feeling depressed, then it is easier to find the ways to overcome it.

A good way to manage your depression is to learn how to deal with your negative thinking. If you get thoughts that make your fearful or anxious, challenge those thoughts with positive statements. Try to minimize the fear behind the thought by thinking of something positive or constructive.

When we worry or get depressed, we tend to worry on exaggerated assumptions. Sometimes our exaggerated ideas can make us worry even more. Remember to get all of the facts of your current circumstances. Getting the facts can make us aware of what is reality and what is not. Before you worry about something, get the necessary information on your situation. Donโ€™t assume anything.

Take things one at a time. Do not look too far ahead. Next week or next month will take care of itself.

Your not alone in dealing with depression and anxiety. If you have such a problem, you can take steps to solve your current problem. They key is to get help from a counselor and to be persistent in finding the ways that will get rid of your anxiety and depression. Remember that there is hope. Eventually you or the person who is struggling will eventually get better. Don’t suffer alone even in your workplace….I was fortunate enough to be able to stay as I work for myself, but I want you to use every resource you can to be a productive co-worker, team member and supervisor. Whatever your rolet is….seek help so you can be the best at it!!!

Have a wonderful Wednesday,

Wednesday Wisdom…Super Size Your Life๐Ÿ™ƒ

Good morning friends...are you looking for ways to get out of that rut we call life??? Here are a couple of ways you can turn your life into a Supersize surprise๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿพ

McDonald’s does it, why shouldn’t you? Life is filled with choices; why not choose to live life in a more satisfying way.

1. Say Yes to Life. “Be not afraid of life. Believe that life is worth living, and your belief will help create the fact.” -Henry James

Saying yes to life allows wonderful blessings to come to you. Say yes to opportunity and success. Say yes to a life that you live by your standards. Say yes to making your own decisions and not seeking approval of others. Say yes to a fulfilling and rewarding career. Say yes to a relationship that energises, supports and stimulates you. Say yes to a promising future. Say yes to living without guilt, resentment or regrets. Say yes to spending more time on your self improvement. Say yes to living an authentic life. Say yes to taking chances and freeing yourself from fear. Say yes to happiness and achievements. Say yes to a well-lived life.

2. Love Yourself and Others Unconditionally. “Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude; it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs…..” I Corinthians 13: 3, 5)

When was the last time you loved without hesitation or caution? Withholding love as a means of control only leads to distrust and resentment.

Loving unconditionally means loving without judgment.

Free yourself from unrealistic expectations and accept the person you love for who they are. Do not expect your needs and wants to be fulfilled by someone else. Allow those you love to express themselves without fear of rejection.

Do not punish yourself or loved ones for past mistakes. People use the word love very loosely, but do not stop to think of the implications of using the word. Take the time to be responsible in how you show love.

Allow yourself to love and be loved.

3. Take Risks “There came a time when the risk to remain tight in the bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.” – Anais Nin

Everything in life involves a risk. Are you allowing fear of rejection and failure to dictate your life? Fear inhibits success. Take chances and free yourself from limiting beliefs. Taking risks empowers you to take charge of your life.

Be curious about life; experiment and try new things. Set goals for yourself and take action. Step out of what is safe, comfortable and familiar to you. Examine what feelings emerge when you are thinking about taking a risk. Ask yourself, “What am I afraid of?”

Concealing yourself in a safe container prevents you from exploring other possibilities. Embrace the unknown and anticipate success. You will never know the outcome if you don’t take the risk.

4. Make the Impossible, Possible “The pessimist sees difficulty in every opportunity. The optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty.”- Winston Churchill

Think it can’t happen; then it won’t.

It is possible to get through the difficult times in life. Learn from failures and take responsibility for your life. Listening to your inner critic can sabotage your dreams.

Silence the critic by reaffirming all the things you are capable of doing. Dream big and be excited about your future. Find and release your untapped talents. Believe in your abilities and discover what you have to offer the world.

Think about all the things you can’t do and try to do them.
Think back to a time, when something was difficult and you were able to overcome the challenge. Continuing to live life in a safe container doesn’t help you gain anything in life. Take the necessary actions to achieve your goals.

Stop assuming and start achieving!

5. Make Your Life Really Count. “How we spend our days is, of course, how we spend our lives.” – Annie Dillard

What’s your legacy?
How do you want to be remembered?

The life you live defines who you are and the choices you make will determine what impact you will have on the lives of others. Never underestimate the power of your words and actions. You were uniquely created to make a contribution to the world.

It is your right and your obligation to make your mark in this world. Surround yourself with people who are supportive, positive and encouraging. Show appreciation and gratitude to those around you. If you have a message to share, then share it with the world. Staying small and thinking small will not get you where you need to be in life. Starting today, have a new perspective on life.

Start a new chapter in your life and don’t worry about what others think, do what mmakes you happy!!!

Have an amazing day,

Wednesday Widsom…Learn how to make Everyday Special๐Ÿ˜

The same sun, the same sky, the same home, and the same routine.โ˜น

Life is boring.

Every day is same.

How to carry on from day to day?๐Ÿคท๐Ÿพโ€โ™€๏ธWhy does a week not have seven sundays? Don’t you find yourself saying – ‘I want to enjoy life. I am getting bored with my schedule that never changes. There is no excitement in my life.’ Ask few friends around their life and they will say something similar.

Why is life becoming a bore for them and how to make it exciting?

Can one escape work? No sensible person can? Can a parent stop caring for his/her children? No.๐Ÿคท๐Ÿพโ€โ™€๏ธ Can an executive stop taking decisions? No. Then how to make life exciting? There must be some way. Yes, there is a way and it is very simple. Just look out of your window and watch the sky. Do you observe any clouds? Look at them. Look at the different shapes? Who made them? From where did they arrive and where will they go? Look at some flowers in your home. Observe the symmetry. Touch and feel the softness. How lovely! We are surrounded by treasures, but we have no time to look at them. A child’s smile can make today a different day than any other day. Try to make a child smile and feel the joy.

Look at the night sky. Observe the stars and think about the distances. Some are so far away that it takes light, hundreds of years to reach us. How many millions of years you will take to walk and reach them? What is beyond them? Observe, think and get excited. Life need never be dull for any of us. Take another example. While sitting on your table, have you ever wondered about the wood that was used to make it? Have you thought about the life of the tree? A small seed grew into a gigantic tree.

How exciting. What of the tar on the road? It comes from deep inside the earth, goes to refineries and is laid on the roads.

How deep must the oil well have been? How did they locate the oil and what will happen after we finish all the oil?( I totally often wonder about this)

The world is full of objects that can make us think and wonder. ๐Ÿค”

It is our attitude that makes our life.

If we adopt a child-like attitude towards things, we will bring joy back in life. ๐Ÿ˜

I am not asking you to give up your work and enjoy. But find time during the day to look at things and wonder. Bring joy back in your life.

You can begin right now.

Look at your screen.

What happens to the text after you shut down your computers?

Where do they all go, when you close the browser?

Isn’t life full of excitement?

Live it.Dont just let it go by…. yes some of these suggestions seem weird but you get the picture my dear, life doesn’t have to be boring at all. Hope today you will find excitement in your life and be thankful God has given you this life regardless of the circumstances…

Have an amazing day friends,

๐“ž๐“ต๐“ฒ๐“ฟ๐“ฒ๐“ช ๐“‘. ๐“ข๐“ฑ๐“ฎ๐“น๐“ฑ๐“ฎ๐“ป๐“ญ

Wednesday Wisdom…what have you done today for happiness tomorrow ๐Ÿ˜€


Happy Wednesday…๐Ÿ˜€

If you want to be happy tomorrow you need to begin working at it today. It’s just that simple..

Some people spend their lives waiting for happiness to arrive on its own and it never comes. Others work hard at creating wealth but still arenโ€™t happy, discovering that money only brings a whole different set of problems. Happiness is a state of mind and not the size of your bank account. Happiness is emotional and not physical. Each individual needs to work at creating their own happiness.

I like how Richard Bach, the author of Jonathan Livingston Seagull, put it when he said, โ€œIf your happiness depends on what somebody else does, I guess you do have a problem.โ€

To find happiness you first have to understand where happiness comes from. Memories are to the mind what a mirror is to the eyes – a reflection. The mirror reflects the physical while our memories reflect the emotional. When you look in the mirror it reflects what you look like; when you look in your mind it reflects who you are. One big difference between the two is that you can change what you see in the mirror but you canโ€™t change the memories reflected in your mind.

We tend to spend a lot of time trying to improve what we see in the mirror, but little or no effort trying to improve our thoughts. Every action creates a memory. Do you really think that the person who is bitter and angry today was happy and cheerful yesterday? If a person says or does something which angers or upsets us, we can either add to the painful memory with our own negative actions or we can replace them with positive actions and create positive memories.

If you want to be happy tomorrow you must choose carefully what you do today, because todayโ€™s actions will be reflected in tomorrowโ€™s memories and you can not make them go away. Everything you do today will be in tomorrowโ€™s reflection. The next time a person angers you, instead of lashing out, try imagining that you are holding up a mirror that bounces the reflection back at him, knowing that his actions or words are a reflection of him and not of you.

We all want to like what we see in the mirror. To be truly happy we also have to like what we see reflected in our minds. What the mirror reflects is not nearly as powerful as what the mind reflects, for it reflects our words and actions.๐Ÿ’—

What will your reflections be filled with?

Will your reflections/memories be filled with goodness and joy or with bitterness and anger?

What have you done today that will bring you happiness tomorrow?๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Hope this post gives you something to think about….๐Ÿค”

Have a wonderful Wednesday,

Wednesday Wisdom…Can You Say Yes To Happiness…Part 2

Happy Wednesday Friends…. Can you say Yes ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿพ to Happiness? I ask this question yesterday, so can you? Here are a couple of more ways to say Yes to your happiness….๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿพโ˜บ๏ธ

Listen To Your Feelings: All feelings are good. Every feeling occurs for a reason: it is delivering a message. Sometimes that message is pleasant, other times not. Our tendency is to distract ourselves from unpleasant feelings, often through smoking, drinking or drugs of one kind or another. When you feel bad, avoid distracting yourself, and identify the reasonโ€”there is some need not being met.

Give Of Yourself: The more you give, the more you receive. There is probably no scientific study proving this to be so, but unconditional giving is hugely rewarding. It seems that the more of yourself you give, the greater the thrill and uplifting effect on your psyche. Help the needy. Give time if you can. Give anonymously, even if you lose the tax deduction!

Make It Happen: You have the ability to make things happen using your mind. Top sports stars, and business people use it, and so can you. There are many ways of doing this; one of the common methods is to use visualizationโ€”getting a picture in your mind of whatever it is that you want to happen. It does not actually have to be a visual picture; it could be a feeling, a smell, a sound, or any combination of the senses. Imagine finding the perfect parking near the entrance as you arrive at the supermarket or mall โ€ฆ the sky is the limit, but persevere! We are not used to utilizing this tool, so it takes practice. ๐Ÿ˜Š

Have an awesome Wednesday ๐Ÿ’ž

Daily Reminder….Spiritual Growth

#dailyreminder

Being with other spiritual individuals is among the best things you are able to do to maintain an attitude of spiritual wellness. A lot of individuals are so centered on the material aspects of life. They believe spirituality is something you only do one day a week.

Seek out like-minded individuals so you feel comfortable with your spirituality.

Have a great day ๐Ÿ’ž

Words of Wisdom

#upgradeyourselfcofidence

#wednesdaywisdom

๐Ÿ’ฅImagine you are building a house. The first and most important step is to start with a strong foundation. A good foundation will support the structure of the house; a bad foundation will cause endless problems with the stability of the structure. The same thing applies to our own foundations. If we do not have a healthy strong foundation, everything that we try to build on top of it is going to topple down.

๐Ÿ’ฅ Self-Esteem, Self-Confidence, and Self-Image make up the foundation of self. Low self-esteem, lack of self-confidence or negative self-image can weaken and destroy our foundation. A fragile foundation hinders self-improvement and goal obtainment because as we try and try we see our efforts collapse. The connection between the amount of success that we see in our lives is in proportion to how healthy or unhealthy our sense of self is.

๐Ÿ’ฅThe first step is to take action….

Itโ€™s important to keep yourself from falling back down that dark whole.

2019 is a year of self-evaluation, start implementing news way to have a stable foundation in you!

Little things can have a tremendous impact on a person. What little things have you done today for someone?

Think back over your life. Think about the people that had a positive influence on you. If your past was like mine, many of them didnโ€™t realize the impact they made. The influence was usually due to them caring about you and doing some little thing. What little things have been done for you that changed your life? What little things have you done for someone else that might have changed theirs?

๐Ÿ’ซI have been influenced by little things done by others.๐Ÿ’ซ

I had a boss that asked whether I had the guts to take a job he felt I could do. It was a job I wasnโ€™t even qualified to apply for. That question influenced me to set my career goals at a higher level and faster pace than they were at that time.

๐Ÿ’ซI have found that we can influence others by doing little things for them.๐Ÿ’ซ

You can influence others by providing help when it is needed. When I say provide help, I am not just talking about offering to help. Most people will not take you up on an offer even if they desperately need it. I remember taking food to a couple that was sick. This was not anyone I knew. It was a friend of someone that was my client. Two years later they saw me, thanked me and told me how much that meant to them. They even remembered my name after two years! ๐Ÿ˜ŠAnother way I have helped was to provide advice to countless women that now refer to me as their mentor. Also, to help families with grocery. Some of these families are friends of mines and thank me constantly for being there at the right time.

๐Ÿ’ซStart today doing little things for others.๐Ÿ’ซ

I can look back over my past and remember several moments in time that God used someone doing a little thing that encouraged me. I have also heard from others that have been influenced by me for doing the same. There are many kinds of little things you can do to encourage others. Some of these involve providing help when there is a need, saying thank you, and writing notes. What are you going to do today for someone that will make a difference in his or her life?
