Pull Up your Spirit

In times of trouble, we ponder on how no one can understand what is going wrong and often get self-involved. And, we self-loathe; we sit back and wonder about our plight that nobody is noticing. You need to stop fretting over things and getting depressed over your way of life. Every ship has to go through tidal times, but the trick is to keep sailing. Self-loathing wreaks havoc in your life. Get over it! (Image

Stop Living in the Past

There's light at the end of the tunnel. Don’t get stuck in the middle but move towards the light. Look around you for all the blessings and things you are lucky to have in your life. Try to make every day brighter than yesterday. Past is only a baggage pulling you back. (Image

Find Yourself

Shut down your mind and take a long weekend off. Your brain needs time to get to the energetic level again and drain all that inside it. The less you keep in your brain, the more you will be able to pull yourself back. (Image

Listen to yourself

Why do you want others to listen to you when no one knows you as well as you know yourself? Don’t bury your feelings but let them come to surface and allow time for truth to rise. (Image

Do what you Love

May be the answer to all your questions is in allowing yourself to do what you love. Make a to-do list, or recall the one you had made once. The smallest of treats may turn you from the path of self-loath to self-love. ‘Love movies? Watch them.’ ‘Love nature? Go hiking.’ Follow your heart; do what you love to do and do it often. (Image

Recall Cherished Memories

Recall the good old, happy days when you were a kid. It will take your mind away from the negative things, and you will feel nice about yourself. Take a look at cherished moments in the old photographs. When you feel rotten, it can be one of the best ways to get you out. (Image

Make a Fresh Start

Throw your schedule into the recycle bin. It is time to make a new schedule, so get started right away. Replace your habits and behaviours with new ones. Nothing happens overnight or even in a week's time. It will take time to be reversed. (Image


Exercise is an excellent way to boost your mood and improve your emotional health. Exercise releases ‘happy hormones’ that reduce stress. It doesn’t have to be ‘at the fitness centre’; you can take a walk, jog or ride a bike. (Image
