Put a smile on your face
Think of happy thoughts. Bring yourself into your own happy place. Try to recall happy moments, memorable life events, Think of your goals and dreams in life or simply watch your favorite comedy movie or watch funny clips on youtube. Once you start laughing, believe it or not, you can’t stop it and it’s a very good way to release all the negative energy in our body that can make you think straight, focus and of course, nothing can make you look and feel younger but a consistent smile on your face.
Find your comfort zone
Whether you are an introvert or extrovert, you can always have your own comfort zones. For introverts, you can go to a place where you can find peace. A place that is far from the busy life of the metro, less crowded places, have your favorite coffee or tea or treat yourself with something that excites you the most like books, clothes or food. For extroverts, you can spend some time with your close friends and families. Try to have some fun filled adventures that can make you divert your attention from thinking too much.
Nobody can motivate you better but yourself. Look at yourself in the mirror and reflect. Encourage yourself to look better. Give yourself some power words like “ I look so good today!” , “ I can do this”,
“ I’m the best “. “ I deserve better than this “ so on and so forth.
Stress will always be part our daily life no matter how big or small it is, what matters most is your attitude towards accepting it and how you bring happiness to you.
