How to lift your February blues to change your happiness quotient <3

Here are a few tips to help with your winter blues! Hope you enjoy and can put them into practice.

  1. Lift your mood first thing in the morning, as you open your eyes whilst still lying in bed, by listing three things you are grateful for in your life! They can be the same three every morning for as long as you like. This practice shifts your mood for the day and is especially important when going through a tough situation.
  2. Through out the day, watch your breathing as often as you can and remember to breathe from your belly– that wave breath comes in really handy when you are in the midst of a stressful or anxious day. The more often you are present to how you actually breathe, allows you to start changing your breathing pattern and retraining your breathing centre.  Soon breathing fully and being present in your breath and in your day will just be second nature!
  3. And lastly, just before you doze off into that wonderful Shangri-la Never Never Land, leave the most beautiful lasting impressions for your subconscious to absorb and reprogram itself ALLLL NIGHT … you can do this by telling yourself the most wonderful I AM-isms about yourself every night … you could ideally say some I am’s about things you are struggling with ..i.e: your weight, focus, concentration, maybe a drinking or smoking habit you want to break, maybe you feel less than beautiful, maybe you don’t feel so smart … what ever it might be you would say to yourself in your mind:
I am smart, I am a beautiful person, I am healthy, I am free of smoking, I am able to say no, I am the ideal weight for my body, I am positive, I am happy, I am in love myself – I truly love myself, I am the best sleeper – I sleep through the night, I am a great communicator- I communicate my inner most thoughts with ease and confidence, I am able to focus and finish my daily tasks….
**And your bonus tip once again is to look yourself in the mirror while staring straight into your eyes and say your first and last name and tell yourself  that you LOVE AND ACCEPT YOURSELF COMPLETELY <3
Have a great weekend!
