“You can run away from yourself so often, and so much, just because the broken pieces of you cut your feet too deeply if you stay around for too long.” — C. JoyBell C.
We have all been hurt by others and have even hurt ourselves at times, but have we taken time to heal? Becoming absolutely numb in the modern way of life is extremely common because we get caught up in the rat race. We’re rushing about without pausing to take a deep breath because we fear we’ll encounter the naked truth.
It can be frightening to not know who you are and what you want. Once you have figured these out, you’ll be much more confident and calm. You will no longer be bewildered and will surely find lasting happiness. Time is constantly fleeting and it can be overwhelming, but if you are comfortable in your space, you won’t need to blame your predicament on the cruelties of passing moments.
Disconnecting with the universe and making time for yourself can be challenging. If you can’t connect with your own soul, you are on the quickest path to anxiety and depression. These steps will help you reclaim your true self:
This is the best way to cut your contact with the world and have a good look into your soul. It is important to reflect, search and be calm. The constant state of flux the universe is in, may distract you initially but it will be alright with repeated practice. Meditation can be of different types and what suits your friend may not work that well for you. You must consider your daily routine while you choose from styles like transcendental, mantra, and mindful. You don’t have to spend hours meditating but concentrate while you do.
Exercise gives you greater physical strength, better energy level and amazing self-confidence. It releases endorphins that uplift your mood making you feel good about yourself. You also spend time with yourself while exercising. Don’t be impulsive and get a gym membership straight away. Take some time analyzing your lifestyle. You need to burn calories and the easiest way is to jog or go for walks. It will lift your mood too. You can also try running, aerobics, weight training, or exercise videos. Yoga is effective for the mind, body, and even the spirit.
3. Proper Nutrition
Eat healthy to stay happy. Food keeps the body functioning the way it should. You must not starve yourself in the name of dieting; a proper diet is a balance of the calorie intake. Fat, protein, vitamins, the body needs everything and in correct proportions. Lack of nutrition leads to illness, stress and body image issues. That doesn’t mean you’ll eat more than what your body needs. Divide and plan your meals with the help of an expert. It will improve your overall well being.
4. Alone Time
This one is a cliché but it is true, spend time with yourself. Get to know what you want and how you’re feeling. Think. Breathe. Act. Maintain a journal, take up a hobby, read books or just take a break and relax. Life is too short to keep wasting your energy in things that don’t matter. Cut the clutter and stay focused. Rejuvenate because your soul is weary. Don’t let anyone make you feel guilty for needing space. Your mental health is important and you can only be happy if you’re content.
Take a step back and reclaim yourself before you lose your soul.
