Do you ever feel like your life is missing something — not quite right and a little off-kilter? The truth is, it's totally possible to lead a vibrant and joyous life by discovering what feels good to you. I am a firm believer that there is always something better on the other side of things, we just have to keep pushing on. In the midst of all of our obligations, we sometimes lose sight of what makes us tick, what creates those beautiful sparks that make us want to get out of bed in the morning.
When I was in the midst of cancer, I had a hard time believing that there would be an end to the fight. How could I possibly feel good in this situation? Physically, I didn't, mentally, it was challenging. I had to challenge my perspective many times but I persevered. I did get through it and here I am, writing and telling others that there is something to fight for. There is an end to any situation you are in if you just push through. It's not always perfect, and we can't predict what may happen next, but believe that things can change, which could only be as small as your perspective. Sometimes we have to accept what is and take advantage of the time that we have.

It's easy to get caught up in the hustle and bustle of everyday life, putting ourselves and our needs on the back burner. I have done this a lot throughout life, and it doesn't make me feel good. By doing this so many times, I found that by doing so, my inner self suffers and it shows in everything that I do and how I treat others. That is why it is important to remember that you are worthy of love and care, especially from yourself. If you have a difficult time putting yourself first, remember, prioritizing yourself helps others because you get to perform at your best. It doesn't matter what is going on, take time to prioritize your own well-being by doing things that make you feel good. Whether it's taking a bubble bath, going for a walk in nature, or indulging in your favorite hobby - obviously my favorite hobby is candles ;) - it's essential to practice self-care regularly. Remember that you are valuable and deserving of love and care, and taking care of yourself is a crucial step in living a happy and fulfilling life.
When it comes to finding wellness, positive thinking can be a powerful tool towards a way to feel good. It can help to shift our mindset away from negative thoughts and focus on the good things in life. Despite the challenges we may face, having a positive perspective can help us to overcome obstacles and find solutions. It can also have a profound impact on our mental and physical health, reducing stress and improving overall well-being. I know that this is easier said than done. I've caught myself in a negative spiral many times and had to get busy and cultivate positive thoughts to try and snap myself out of it. It's hard! But, while it may not be easy to maintain a positive outlook all the time, making an effort to think positively and practice gratitude can have a transformative effect on our lives. Please, give it a try and see how it could benefit you. Perhaps, write down positive thoughts or say positive things out loud. Your brain will start to believe it!
Exploring different activities, such as yoga, running, or painting, can be a wonderful way to cultivate joy and reduce stress in our lives and ultimately feel good. Whether it's the calm and relaxation of a yoga class, the endorphin rush from a satisfying run, or the creativity and self-expression of painting, each activity offers its own unique benefits. It's important to find what works best for you and to make time for these activities regularly. By incorporating these joyful hobbies into our lives, we can improve our mental and physical health while also cultivating a greater sense of fulfillment and happiness. Remember, self-care isn't selfish - it's essential.
There have been multiple studies that have proven that exercise can treat depression. According to Medical News Today, Dr. Ben Singh says its 1.5 times more effective than an anti-depressant drug. Now, I must admit, I am terrible at getting up and exercising even with this knowledge. I'm right there with you if you're having a hard time as well! Post your struggles in the comments and perhaps we can work through this together - let's find what will make us feel good!
We must identify our obstacles before we can remove them and find the way to feel good. It can be frustrating when we feel like we're not able to fully enjoy our lives or experience happiness. Sometimes, there are obstacles that get in the way of feeling good, and it's important to recognize them so we can work to overcome them. One potential obstacle is negative self-talk, when we constantly criticize ourselves and focus on our faults rather than our strengths. Another obstacle might be unhealthy coping mechanisms, such as turning to substances or other harmful behaviors as a way of managing stress or difficult emotions. This can range from minor to major vices but they're still vices nonetheless. It's important to approach these obstacles with compassion for ourselves, recognizing that we're doing the best we can with what we have. By seeking support and developing healthy coping strategies, we can overcome these obstacles and create a more fulfilling life with a greater sense of wellbeing.
Making the decision to incorporate healthy habits into your daily routine can feel overwhelming, but it's important to remember that small changes can have a big impact. Perhaps you start by setting aside 10 minutes each morning to stretch or meditate, or making an effort to drink more water throughout the day. Whatever habits you choose to adopt, be kind and compassionate with yourself as you adjust to these changes. Remember, this is a journey and it's okay to stumble along the way. Celebrate your successes, no matter how small, and keep moving forward with your newfound commitment to your health and wellbeing.
Embarking on a journey can be a rollercoaster of emotions - it's exciting, fulfilling, but there are times when it's challenging and overwhelming. The good news is that we don't have to go at it alone. Seeking support from loved ones and professionals can make a world of difference, and it's a sign of strength, not weakness. Whether you need a listening ear, a shoulder to cry on, or expert guidance, reaching out for help can feel good and help you overcome obstacles with greater ease and confidence. Don't hesitate to ask for the support you need to succeed; there are people who care and want to help!
To find wellness is to recognize that each individual is unique, and discovering our personal feelings of well-being will take patience and perseverance. Taking the time to practice self-care activities, embrace positive thinking, and try out different activities is key. By identifying potential obstacles in your path, creating a plan with achievable goals, and looking for support along your journey, you can develop a roadmap for finding wellness that helps you on your own path to a happier life. Everyone deserves to find joy and fulfillment; mindful effort and self-compassion are invaluable tools in this endeavor. Embrace the inner strength within you that can help you on the path to finding what makes you feel good.
