Human as you are, you are prone to both positive and negative tendencies. Without meaning to, you may find yourself feeling low one day and exuberant the next day. If you let your emotions and feelings get hold of yourself, you will see the swings of emotion. Depending on how you perceive life, you are drawn to one that has been reflective of your own emotions. The danger is when you are entrapped by so much negativity that you have difficulty in creating a comfortable and nurturing life. To ensure that you don’t get stuck in a lousy environment of your own making, check out positive attitude activities to turn you around.
The aim of meditation is to create a state of interconnectedness to one’s environment. It is a stress-relieving and healing technique. The connection between physical and mental health has long been recognized to include its use in conventional medicine.
One associates meditation with sitting cross-legged, eyes closed in a darkened room to concentrate and free one’s mind or induce one into a state of calm. Meditation takes on many forms. It can be a quiet time reading the Scriptures, a brisk early morning walk in one’s neighborhood, an after office yoga class or simply a 5-minute break outside one’s building to breathe fresh air and clear one’s head. Others just flip through favorite magazines looking at pictures of design, nature scenes or go into more active physical activity like gardening.
Of course, you could try a different form of meditation that involves going on a retreat. These days, there is what you call an Ayahuasca Retreat, which aims to enlighten, transcend, and awaken you. The retreat package offers spiritual healing, fishing trip on the Amazon river, and a pure way to experience life.
Go sleep well
Sometimes one gets irritated with family members who seem to have an inordinate need for sleep. Yes, it’s a problem if this is done because of laziness to escape work and responsibilities. In this sense, time is wasted. Sleep, otherwise, is one of the excellent positive attitude activities and should not necessarily be sacrificed by weekly late nights out with the men or dancing- until-you-drop for the women. In other words, don’t lose your balance. Sleep is needed for one’s mental, emotional, and physical well-being. Your energy level will improve and your immune system can do its work better.
If you have sleeping problems, try these out.
- Take a hot or cold bath (your preference) to feel fresh and at ease
- Don’t start any mental activity or watch disturbing TV programs and news
- Listen to soothing music or recordings of natural sounds like waves to lull you to sleep
- Try herbal or nutritional support to induce sleep
- Turn off the lights to allow, melatonin, to do its work on sleep and repair cycles
Do the entire positive attitude activities and eat wisely so one can achieve holistic health. On the other hand, remember feeling good and feeling well will enlighten your life.
