How to feel better day by day

The problems of self-esteem are much more frequent than we imagined, so we would like to talk to you today about how to feel better on a day-to-day basis without having to leave the routine. Follow our advice and start to be happy.

Many times, in the midst of work, family life, haste, stress and routine, we have the feeling of not being happy and that in order to be able to be happy we will need great things. But this is not the case at all. Today we want you to learn how to feel better and how to raise your self-esteem on a daily basis simply by changing and adding certain very simple habits to your day-to-day life. Are you ready?

How to feel better by changing the perspective
We know that wellness is not a matter of magic and that it will not change from one day to the next, but we are also aware that with a small change in the perspective we have towards life, many things can change for the better. Many times the reality we see is the result of our own head: do not forget that you can decide how to see life and how to face it daily.

Enjoy the small things
First of all, you should avoid the thought that you need great things to be happy, because it is not true. Focus on the little things of everyday life and enjoy them: a coffee with your friends, sleep and wake up without alarm, watch a sunset, sound the song you expected while you have the playlist in random, the smell to coffee in the morning, go shopping and see that the dress you have been looking for months is lowered, go out and make the sun, or just realize that you have many more reasons than you thought to be happy. And how are you, many more things that happen to us every day and of which we do not usually be aware.

Accept what you feel
The “everything has a positive side” may be true, and that is what you have to set yourself to avoid low self-esteem, even negative events take you a good learning that can be useful in another moment of life.

However, no matter how hard you try to focus on positive things, there are inevitably times when you feel worse. Do not repress or fight against them, allow yourself to feel bad at some point, body and mind also need to download. You must learn to live with it and to see these moments as a way of mental liberation, a new opportunity to start over with the knowledge learned.

Become your priority
On the other hand, one of the strong points when learning how to recover self-esteem is to know ourselves, take care of ourselves and pamper us. You are the one who always accompanies you, so treat yourself well, think about all the qualities you have and empower them, make yourself happy. It is very important that you keep a little bit of time each day for yourself, to carry out the activities that you like the most and with which you feel comfortable and fulfilled. That will help you feel good. In addition, just as we said that we have to learn to live with moments of sadness, we must also do it with our faults, the trick is to know and accept us as we are.

Live here and now
Finally, remember that the only true reality is the present, do not waste your time remembering negative things from the past or overwhelming yourself for what will come. The past is already done and we do not have the power to control what will happen. The best thing is that, always according to your values ​​and interests, you set some goals, but some realistic goals that start today. Go for them with decision.

The daily routine of happiness
As we have been saying, it is not necessary to leave our routine to get happy. How to feel better doing the same as always? you will ask yourself. Well surely it is much simpler than you think. Follow this routine that we propose below and you will see how every day you are a little bit happier. The goal of our routine is that, every day, when you return to bed again, you feel that it has been a good day, despite your “not so good” things. You see? This is also changing the perspective. Do not forget the enormous power that language has over things, the way to put them.

In the morning…
To start, put the alarm clock a little earlier than usual, so you’ll have time to carry out all the beauty rituals and take breakfast more quietly and without haste. Waking up with little time produces unnecessary stress from morning, which will make the day start worse than it should. Simply moving the alarm a little forward we can enjoy more peacefully every morning action before leaving home on the way to work. Do not forget to smile! It seems silly, but making a small effort to smile more has a huge impact on our mood throughout the day.

After breakfast, a good shower and the rituals of beauty that we like the most, it’s time to leave home and start the day to the fullest. To do this, put your favorite music on the way to work and enjoy each song. You can also take the opportunity to say good morning to your closest relatives or friends. We are social beings and being in contact with the people we love always suits us.

Once at work, try to be nice to everyone and accept things as they come. Do not take on more responsibilities than necessary and remember “dress me slowly I’m in a hurry”. Organize yourself well and you will see how there is time for everything and things will turn out better. It is also very important, within the possibilities of each one, to carry out a job that we like, with which to feel fulfilled.

Another of the essential things that you must take into account to discover how to feel better is food. A varied and balanced diet will make your body healthy and function normally, and therefore will make you generally feel better too. Avoid overly heavy meals that will lead to a more sedentary life. Even if you eat at work, try to bring homemade food, much better for your health and also for your pocket.

In the afternoon…
But not everything is to work, you also have to clear up. So, once your working day is over, dedicate time to yourself. A good way to end the tensions of the day is to perform at least half an hour of daily physical exercise. Also, get in touch with your friends, chat and disconnect. Telling your friends or relatives what you have done during the day, what worries you, worries you or makes you illusion, will make you relish a bit of pressure from your mind.

At night…
Once back home, you can take a relaxing shower before dinner. The end of the day has come, what has not been so bad? The dinner should be light, since this way you will sleep better and rest more, so that you wake up strongly to start your routine again. Remember that it is advisable to let at least one hour pass between dinner and the time you go to bed. During that time, you can enjoy your favorite series or movie or read a book, for example. It is very important that you take into account the schedules, so you can organize to do everything you want and sleep between 7 and 8 hours a day, which is the time the body needs to be fully rested.

Already in bed, before falling asleep, make a mental review of everything that has happened in the day, always focusing on the positive things and taking a teaching of those that are a little more negative. Positive thinking before sleep greatly influences the quality of sleep. Avoid thinking about the next day, since that will only make you feel overwhelmed by the things you have to do and, in reality, it does not make sense. Remember that you must “think in the present”, and your present is now your bed.

Now that you know how to feel better on a day to day basis, what is easier than you thought? Put all this into practice and you will see how your self-esteem and your well-being do not stop improving.

Below you will find a guide that will help you to cope with panic attacks or to know how to offer help if a close person suffers.

Panic attacks are characterized by the presence of intense physical symptoms. Faced with these symptoms, the person reacts with fear and thinks that something bad will happen such as fainting or a heart attack. It is precisely this negative thought that causes greater anxiety and fear.

Undoubtedly, one of the characteristics that most aggravate the situation is that once this feeling has been experienced once, the fear of repeating that episode begins to grow. But how to deal with panic attacks? Discover below tips of interest.

Overcoming panic attacks is easier if …
Each person has their times and mechanisms to deal with panic. What for some is an ideal solution, for others it is useless and vice versa. Below we will give tips that work for many people but, of course, the most important thing is that you can find specialized psychological help to treat anxiety and make your progress more immediate.
You realize that it’s going to happen

pan1
The symptoms of a panic attack start an hour before it starts. For that reason, if you know the signs that are repeated in each attack, you will be able to realize it in time and avoid the fear that it generates that happens to you of unforeseen. Knowing the sensations before a panic attack will make you feel more prepared to deal with anxiety and do it quickly and effectively. Some of these symptoms are: chest pain, shortness of breath, difficulty breathing, or dizziness.

You learn relaxation techniques

Getting control of the effect that physical symptoms have on the body is much easier if we have relaxation techniques that allow us to maintain a certain balance in our body. Knowing these techniques provides security and decreases the fear of another possible attack.

You explain what happens to family and friends

pan2
The fact of opening up and telling your feelings and emotions to your trusted people not only makes you feel comfortable but also assumes in a clearer way what is the situation you are going through. Analyzing and verbalizing your emotional state makes you more aware of it and that helps you cope with a panic attack.

You have a healthy life

Healthy eating and sleeping habits have a positive effect on emotional well-being. Good sleep hygiene results in the release of hormones that counteract stress hormones and therefore helps us to be physically and emotionally stronger, as well as controlling anxiety while you sleep. For its part, a good diet also reduces stress and also strengthens the immune system, making the body is better prepared.

You make a list of the steps to follow and you always carry it
This will make you feel more secure and prepared in case you suffer a panic attack. It is a question of summarizing the steps that must be carried out before the attack and writing them in a place of easy accessibility, be it a small list in paper that we carry in the portfolio or a note of the mobile.

What steps should you follow?

1-Go to a safe place

pan3
If the symptoms you are suffering lead you to think that you are about to panic or you are already living it, it is best to retire to a place that makes you feel more calm. A place where you have enough privacy to begin to relax and not be forced to interact with people.
2- Just relax.

pan4

Work your breath to get relaxed when the panic attack appears. Concentrate on your inspirations and exhalations to regulate your hormonal levels. Do not stop breathing like this until your symptoms begin to disappear.

3-Stop the negative thoughts

pan5
Surely there is a negative thought that is causing the attack. That thought is generating alarms that come to your brain in the form of a threat, so you must send the opposite thought to cut the emergency signal. In this sense, it is important that you clear the thoughts that are repeated over and over again in your head. For example, it will be useful for you to think “FOR” each time the negative thought appears.

4-Repeat phrases that calm you

pan7
It is important to stop negative thinking but also change it for another adaptive one. Make a list of thoughts that calm you down and leave it in an accessible place in case the attack repeats itself. Some of those thoughts could be:
“I know what are the symptoms of the panic attack, I know I’m not going to die because the sensation of choking ends up happening if I breathe well.”
“This pain is going to happen, I’ve already overcome a panic attack before.”
“I know that a time will come when the symptoms will begin to diminish and the discomfort will disappear.”

4-Be aware of your emotions
So negative is to make the panic attack the center of your life and that you are not able to think of something else, like underestimating your suffering. You need to be aware of what an attack is, of the effects it has on you and of the solutions to face them. Recognizing your emotions or thoughts that trigger a panic attack to a greater extent will be critical to ending them.

Fighting an attack is not easy, so it is important that you congratulate yourself and recognize your great work once the symptoms have stopped. You have achieved it, you must keep in your memory the feeling of satisfaction in case the attack is repeated, that will remind you of what you have been capable of.
What is the solution?
When we speak of panic attack we must separate the facilitators that make you approach emotional well-being and the real solution to achieve it definitely. In the group of facilitators you can find breathing as a way to regulate us, relaxation techniques, diet care or exercise to prevent anxiety, among others.

On the other hand, the real solution, even if it is not a miraculous formula, is undoubtedly the option that obtains the best and most lasting results. This solution is to go to a professional, who not only gets you to control a panic attack but to disappear altogether. Together with a psychologist you will find the origin of the problem and by treating the real cause, you will be able to understand why it happens to you and then eliminate them.

The help of a psychologist in addition to the above, can prevent panic attacks trigger a generalized anxiety disorder. That is why it is essential that the search for help is made as soon as possible, without letting the continuous attacks undermine the self-esteem of the sufferer and associated problems appear as inability to carry out the normal routine or difficulty to maintain performance. In a next post I will talk about natural remedies to help to overcome panic attacks.

Cortisol the stress hormone

Cortisol is a hormone synthesized from cholesterol in the two adrenal glands, located in the upper part of each kidney. It is usually released in response to events and circumstances such as waking up in the morning, exercising, and acute stress. The systemic effects of cortisol play many roles in the body to carry out its stressful processes and maintain homeostasis.
Cortisol in response to stress
Cortisol (along with epinephrine) is known for its involvement in the “fight or flight” response and the temporary increase in energy production, to the detriment of other processes that are not necessary for immediate survival.

The following steps are a typical example of how cortisol works in response to stress and as a survival mechanism:

An individual is facing a stress factor.
A complex hormonal response is generated, and the adrenal glands secrete cortisol.
Cortisol prepares the body for a fight or flight response, flooding it with glucose, an immediate source of energy for large muscles.
Cortisol inhibits the production of insulin in an attempt to prevent glucose from being stored, favoring its immediate use. Cortisol narrows the arteries, while epinephrine increases the heart rate, so the strength of the blood when pumping is stronger and faster.
What happens if I have an excess of cortisol?
Excess cortisol over a prolonged period of time can lead to so-called Cushing’s syndrome. This can be caused by various factors, such as a tumor that generates adrenocorticotropic hormone (and therefore increases the secretion of cortisol), or take certain types of medications.

Symptoms include:

Rapid weight gain, mainly on the face, chest and abdomen, in contrast to thin arms and legs
A red, round face
Arterial hypertension
Osteoporosis
Changes in the skin (purple bruises and stretch marks)
Muscular weakness
Mood changes: anxiety, depression or irritability
Increased thirst and frequency of urination
High levels of cortisol for a long time may also cause lack of sexual desire and, in women, periods may be irregular, less frequent or completely stopped (amenorrhea).
Sleep deprivation, caffeine, alcohol and its effects on cortisol
Students often sacrifice hours of sleep and increase caffeine and alcohol consumption, all of which have an impact on cortisol levels and, therefore, the physiological markers of the stress response.

Acute loss of sleep confuses the HPA axis and alters the negative feedback regulation of glucocorticoids. In one study they found that plasma cortisol levels are higher, up to 45%, after sleep deprivation, an increase that has implications including immunological response, cognitive decline and metabolic disturbances.

The relationship between caffeine, stress and cortisol secretion is also important. When we ingest a large amount of caffeine in a day, our cortisol levels increase. There is a clear positive relationship between caffeine consumption and cortisol release, and this relationship is aggravated when other potential stressors are introduced. In this way, to the intake of caffeine, we add the lack of sleep and the intake of energy drinks, we can be causing a great hormonal imbalance in our body.
Alcohol manages to activate the HPA axis because it depresses the nerve cells responsible for the inhibition of HPA, thus increasing the activity of the axis. As a result, the adrenal cortex secretes high levels of cortisol. It is not surprising then, that students complain later about their considerable level of anxiety and pressure sensation, since they are our common responses to stress.

In short, lack of sleep, caffeine consumption and alcohol consumption act together to increase the amount of cortisol in our body, increasing the stress we try to combat.

How to get ride of work stress

One of the biggest problems that a person can face in their work is stress. This occurs as a result of an imbalance between the demands of the environment (internal or external stressors) and the available resources of the subject. In this way, the elements to consider in the potentially stressful interaction are: situational variables (for example, a bad relationship with a superior in the workplace), individual variables of the subject that faces the situation (for example, social skills) available) and consequences of stress. Therefore, stress appears when certain demands are made to the individual, which has to respond but does not have the necessary resources to do so; then it is when the symptoms appear.

The list of symptoms of a person suffering from stress can be very extensive and varied:

– Concern

– Fear

– Lack of concentration

– Insecurity

– Negative feelings

– Negative thoughts

– Tremors

– Sleep disorders

– Eating disorders

– Digestive pains …

There are many factors that can arouse a stress response; Any situation or condition that puts pressure on the individual in his work can cause a stress reaction. And sometimes, even if the situation is not objectively very stressful (for example, it may be overwhelming for one individual, but not for another), if an individual interprets this situation as a danger, or as a potential threat. , the stress reaction will arise. But there are certain factors that have been seen that are repeated in people who have suffered work stress such as overwork, lack of resources to do it, bad relationships with superiors or subordinates, lack of time to perform the tasks demanded, insecurity in employment, etc.

But what can we do to prevent this problem?

● Rest. It is important to have enough time to recover from a hard day’s work. Disconnecting and focusing on other types of pleasant activities will make you perform better the next day at your workplace.

● Maintain a healthy lifestyle by taking care of the diet and exercising regularly.

● A good communication with other members of your team will make the environment relaxed and we feel comfortable to express ourselves freely.

● Do not let problems go by: face them in a more active or passive way, analyzing what is best in each case.

● Practice relaxation with some assiduity in the moments when we are worse, dedicating some time to ourselves.

● Congratulate ourselves when we have done a task well. If we have done wrong to recognize that we have done wrong on this occasion, analyze our mistakes and correct them, without guilt, without negative thoughts about oneself.

“The greatest weapon against stress is our ability to choose one thought over another.”

Why are you depressed?

 

Why are you depressed, if you do not have any problems, if you have everything, this is one of the affirmations that many people make before a person who feels depressed, the explanation is simple they say it because they have not gone through a depression.

Anyone can fall into a depression, it’s like when you go through a forest that you think you know and without wanting it or realizing you get lost, you have taken a path that you thought was familiar and you continue walking with the confidence that you will leave it, do not think about calling Nobody, you know how to find the way, and you keep walking and walking, and it starts to get dark and you do not see where you are anymore. Someone told you that following the stars you could find the north but what stars? How are they interpreted? It will be easy but I do not see the way and at the end you see yourself going around without seeing anything and without knowing how to get out.

Have you ever lost yourself in broad daylight? sure yes, but if there is light, how is it that you lose ?, well imagine when you see nothing ….

Suffer a depression is that, is to be in a black tunnel, it is like putting on a dark glasses that do not let you see, although everyone around you see everything as much clarity, you explain that you are not like that because you want, that you have lost the illusion, that you have lost the desire to do things and that you also have a hard time doing them, that you just want to cry and stay in bed, you do not want to take care of yourself anymore, so that a negative vision of yourself, of the future and the world … for what?

Depresion article

Time passes and you can not get out, when the people around you are already aware that something is wrong with you, they try to help you by encouraging you, comforting you, pushing you, everyone does it the way they know or can, and you think that They do not understand you, they are wrong, because you do not even know how to explain what happens to you, if you do not understand it or you.

You do not realize that there is a solution, depression is cured, even if it seems impossible, you get out of it.

You go through the forest, the branches hit you in the face, you stumble and you get desperate, you stay lying on the cold ground, suddenly a hand touches you, it’s a stranger, that in that dark forest, it appears and touches you on the shoulder, it encourages you to get up, to tell you what happens to you while he seems to know the path between so much darkness, you begin to walk together, slowly, calmly, there is no hurry; even if you want to get out of there, and get to your house where you will feel more secure, however that stranger starts to show you interesting things, like different ways of seeing in the forest, it is true that when there is no light, the trees look ghosts and distorted, we see unreal figures that invade us and fear is so intense that it penetrates us, that we believe that we will never get out of there.

In other words, within the framework of psychology, a depression is thinking bad, negative thoughts, distorted thoughts of reality, irrational ideas that settle in us in a way that we feel a pessimistic feeling invades us, penetrates us and we believe that it does not we can recover, are accompanied by feelings such as sadness, fear, insecurity, lack of enthusiasm, apathy ….

And time goes by and you keep walking through the forest, but you do not go alone anymore, you do not see where you’re going, but he does, and he guides you, tells you stories that sometimes you do not know very well because he tells you, you you listen and then in those stretches of silence you think about them, it leaves you at some point that you choose the path to go, and he goes with you, also listening to your stories, asking about them and being interested in the reason for what you tell him; Those questions that sometimes make you think that your way of living, of seeing past things go through the same filter, that’s why the ways of facing situations are often so similar.

After walking for a while, you start to see among the trees, it seems that there is light, it is still a little far away but there is light.

dep2

Getting out of a depression means being willing to open your mind, to be receptive to other ways of thinking, to see things differently, not unreally, but objectively, to accept that it is normal for negative feelings to appear, but not to be dragged by them, you can keep walking even feeling bad, it is more difficult but you can, it is the effort of not paying attention to the apathy or apathy, you have to keep moving, dancing even if your feet hurt, they will rest …

You are getting closer and closer to the light, that forest that looked like a labyrinth, has an exit, you have walked with your new friend until the end of that trip, you have talked so much … it is time to say goodbye, you already know that if you come back to lose, you can find the exit, or you alone or asking for help, but you will leave, that gives you strength and security, because there is always a path with light, always, even if we do not see it, you will know it is there.

dep3
Suffering a depression is a painful experience, it supposes a high suffering for the person who suffers it, but it is not forever if you work on it, it can be overcome, you just have to know how, if you do not know look for someone to help you and guide you, because there is always a long way to go and many songs to dance.

The natural way to beat anxiety and depression

Do you feel pitiful, negative, stressed? Do you experience difficulty dozing, battle with a low energy, and have you lost the get-up-and-go and happiness in your life?

These are for the most part normal manifestations of depression, and when you tell your family doctor, internist or gynecologist about them, he or she frequently goes after the solution cushion with expectations of giving you a handy solution. They just have a couple of minutes for you on their bustling calendars, and upper and hostile to nervousness solutions have been charged as offering quick, simple help. Be that as it may, before you acknowledge the medicine, you should need to give it a moment, third, and even fourth idea and think about another way.

Let me get straight to the point: I am not restricted to pharmaceutical for anxiety and depression Medications can be extremely successful when focused legitimately after a careful workup, yet they can likewise be dangerous when not used properly .

While I am not restricted to pharmaceutical for anxiety and depression, I am profoundly contradicted to the aimless utilization of these drugs and the way numerous doctors and other social insurance experts endorse them, without a far reaching workup and without unmistakably enlightening patients regarding the potential symptoms, poor long haul result studies, and elective treatment alternatives.

The wild utilization of these medicines is harming our general public. It has been evaluated that the utilization of antidepressants have gone up 400% over the most recent two decades and that about a fourth of all females (23%) between the ages of 40-59 are taking them.

The general adequacy of antidepressants has come into genuine inquiry in the course of the most recent decade. These solutions are likewise not without their own symptoms, particularly in the region of sexual brokenness, weight pick up and backslide. Patients who begin with stimulant or hostile to nervousness meds have a tendency to have higher backslide rates than the individuals who never begin, or they utilize elective types of treatment, for example, exercise or talk treatment.

Giving the diagnosis of depression is precisely similar to giving somebody the analysis of chest pain. Specialists don’t give individuals the analysis of chest pain since it has excessively numerous distinctive causes and fiercely extraordinary medicines. It can be caused by such assorted things as heart attack, an arrhythmia, pneumonia, a ulcer, tension, despondency and gas. Giving everybody a similar treatment for chest pain is insane.

However depression is a similar way. It can be caused by distress, low thyroid, pancreatic growth, cerebrum injury, poisons, heftiness, diabetes, rest apnea and that’s only the tip of the iceberg (untreated thyroid issues or rest apnea) It is evaluated that almost 30% to 40% of all depression have fundamental restorative causes. Without a careful workup, it is difficult to comprehend what.

For that reasons we need to utilize a more natural approach at whatever point conceivable.

All in all, what is the “normal” approach to treat uneasiness and discouragement?

In the event that you feel restless or discouraged and it endures over two weeks, make a point to get an intensive restorative workup, including exhaustive blood work that incorporates a thyroid examination. Before attempting pharmaceutical, unless your condition is extreme, attempt some straightforward mediations, for example:

  • Exercise (walk like you are running late for 45 minutes per day)! In an examination contrasting activity with antidepressants, they were similarly powerful at 12 weeks, and exercise was more viable at 10 months.
  • A solid, mitigating diet. Lose the prepared sustenances and sugar, and nourishments that rapidly swing to sugar. A Mediterranean Diet was appeared to have stimulant impacts.
  • Begin taking fish oil to support omega-3
  • Work with a specialist to slaughter the ANTs (programmed negative thinking) that fuel depression. Negative reasoning examples give the gas to nervousness and depression.

Try natural medicine first, is always better
