Easy Tasks To Get Yourself Into A Good Frame Of Mind

When things get to much, and it feels like there’s little you can do to get yourself into a good frame of mind, that can create a lot of stress. If you suffer from anxiety and/or depression, then you know what it’s like to spiral out of control. It gets to the point where nothing can be said or done at that moment to pick you back up again.

You can get back to your old self, though. You know you can. You’ve done this kind of thing before, and you’ll do it again. If you’re in a dark place right now, then you already know that getting right out of it will not be an easy task that happens overnight. You can do small things, however, that will slowly build you up and get your mind back into the right place. You can build a foundation for yourself – almost like a safety net – that you can fall back onto when things go a little wrong again. Here are a few things you can do:

Exercise And Eat 

These two things are much easier said than done, but once you start them, you will see improvement. Exercising not only releases endorphins, but it also helps you to improve at a certain skill. You’ll feel a lot better about yourself due to the confidence in your ability to do something challenging. Eating right also gives your mind and body more energy, meaning you process situations better.

Talk!

Opening up about anything regarding mental health will help out – this is another objective fact; it’s not up for debate. Letting people help out will mean your problem will be halved. Others will be able to help you conquer your issues. You’ll feel a weight lifted.

Research Medicinal Help 

Sometimes, medical help is necessary. Perhaps even something like CBD oil from https://www.remedyreview.com/ would do the trick. If you feel like more treatment would help, then heading to a doctor or terapist is a good idea. They’ll be able to analyze the situation and prescribe you the correct medication if needed. Relaxing your mind and stopping yourself from thinking tragic things is a great first step in the journey towards recovery. 

Do Something

This is, again, another part of life that’s easier said than done, but it’s something that everyone should be urged to do. Sitting around is a terrible thing – it’s great when you’re tired after a long, busy day, but it’s a terrible habit to get into. When you sit down and do nothing for a long time, your mind starts to wonder. When your mind wanders, it can go to strange places. Simply making your bed in the morning is a good task to start with. Once you’ve done that, just find something to do around the house – it doesn’t matter what it is. Keep busy. Keep that mind occupied!

  1. Great tips Melinda and thank you for mentioning that it’s not always easy to pull yourself out of a dark place. I know what will help me — if only I had the strength and impetus to do it. I will pull myself out of it tho’ and right now I’m going to do a few minutes mindfulness.

    1. I’ve been there and understand that there are times when we can only do the smallest of things to help us crawl out fo the darkness. Mindfulness is a good method I use every day when I’m stressed it helps me settle down. I know this is so hard to do but work on something for yourself. A hot bath, smell some soothing essential oils, just do a foot soak, anything to take care of you personally. I find the more self-care I do the better I feel. I’m working on a post about self-care and how to take it to the next level. 🙂

      1. I did some mindfulness and a few other motivating exercises, and I do feel better. Okay not 100%, but it’s an improvement.

        You’re right, the more self-care, the more I want to do too. So later, I’m going to give myself a pedicure.

        Thank you so much for your continued for your support 🙂
