Bouncing back from your down days….3 simple steps!!

Even though the sun rises every day, there are times that it doesn’t reflect on your spirit. There are some days that are just discouraging. And in those cases, you’re usually unable to get out of your negative mood soon enough.

If only you could find a way to bounce back on those trying days. There’s so much beauty in the world that your frame of mind is preventing you from enjoying.

It’s time to make a positive change. And believe it or not, all the power to make that change is within you!

By employing these approaches, your gloomy days will likely take a turn for the better:

  1. Reaffirm your greatness. Lots of things in life can leave you feeling discouraged. But by no means is discouragement supposed to consume your existence! In fact, you owe it to yourself to live an inspired life. And one of the best ways to do that is to keep your self-image intact.

Each morning, write a list of three things that you’re grateful for. Those are the things you endeavor to keep a part of your life. If they’re important to you, you’ll want to be able to enjoy them. That’s hard to do when you’re in a state of discouragement.

At the same time, write a list of accomplishments you’re proud of. Your accomplishments reflect your greatness. They can make you smile when you think about them. Allowing yourself to smile regularly can certainly help to turn your grey skies blue.

2. Conquer a physical challenge. A lot of times, a challenging physical exploit can help you appreciate life. It also helps you to recognize your inner strengths. When you realize just how strong you are, it’s easier to conquer a discouraging day.

Take a hike with some friends. Make it the kind of hike that challenges your resolve. Your run-of-the-mill trek to the national park may be too easy.

Make a mental note of the moments you feel like giving up. Your legs are burning and your throat is completely parched. Yet, you fight through the discomfort. 

When you’ve made it to the end, take note of the feeling of exhilaration. You’re unable to control the ear to ear smile that comes with overcoming obstacles. That experience will change your approach to life forever.

3. Help others. One of the easiest ways to change discouragement to hope is to help others in need. Giving less fortunate people a glimmer of hope helps you to appreciate what you have.

You could offer help to someone who is more emotionally downtrodden than you. Almost immediately, you’ll realize your situation isn’t as bad as it seemed.

Another option is to help someone who’s financially challenged. That could be a homeless person, or someone who’s without a job. Help them to get back on their feet.

As you incorporate these activities into your life, you’ll realize a complete change in your outlook. Challenges that used to seem unconquerable are now minor detractions in your life. You’ll start to feel like you’re bigger than any challenge thrown at you. And that’s when you’ll know that discouragement has changed to empowerment!

8 Simple steps to become More Socially Confident!!

Some people have social confidence to spare. It’s easy to see that some children are seemingly born with great social confidence, while others are not. Social confidence seems to come and go for most adults.

A serious lack of social confidence can lead to isolation and stifle career growth. If there’s one part of your life in which it pays to be confident, it’s in your social interactions.

Use these strategies to increase your social confidence and feel comfortable in all social situations:

  1. Practice. Every person that crosses your path is a practice partner for your social skills. The more practice you get, the better you’ll become at interacting with others. The better you become, the more confident you’ll feel. There are all kinds of things you can practice:

    • Eye contact
    • Small talk
    • Non-verbal communication
    • Telling jokes
    • And more

  2. Rehearse. Imagine yourself being successful socially. Before you head into a social situation, rehearse in your mind. See yourself being confident and competent. Imagine others responding to you in a positive way. In time, you’ll learn to feel the same way out in the real world.

  3. Adopt an effective attitude. It’s not a matter of life and death. No one is judging you or spending any of their time thinking about you. In fact, they’re probably wondering what you’re thinking about them.

    • Interacting with people in a social context should be fun and pleasant. Have a reasonable perspective on the situation.

  4. Focus on self-development. When you feel better about yourself, you’ll be more socially confident. Whether that means getting in shape, learning a new skill, or meditation, any enhancements you make will leave you feeling more confident.

  5. Learn. Learn about communication. Pick one area, such as nonverbal communication, and become an expert. Then, get out and practice. When you’ve mastered that, pick a new area to learn about. The more you know, the better you’ll become. That leads to real confidence.

  6. Avoid the need to be perfect. You don’t have to be perfect. You don’t have to be the funniest person at the party. You don’t have to be the most charming person in the bar. Perfection is an unreasonable goal that leads to anxiety and a lack of confidence.

  7. Join a social group. You know a group of people that hang out together. It might be at work. It might be a friend that has a separate group of friends. See if you can join, too. Finding the right group of people can boost your social confidence.

    • Perhaps you already have a group of friends. Spend more time with them. Or, you might form your own group and become the social director!

  8. Combine social events with activities you’re good at. Are you a great softball player? Join a softball league. Are you an expert at riding a motorcycle? Join a motorcycle club. Find an activity you excel at and turn it into a social activity.

    • Make a list of everything you do better than the average person. Now, find a way to do that in a group setting. You might join a band, a chess club, or a group that square dances on the weekend.

Think about how much your life would change if you were more socially confident. How would it impact your career? How would your social life be affected?

It’s hard to think of any potential downside to having greater social confidence. If you weren’t lucky enough to be born with perpetual confidence, you’ll want to grow and nurture this important attribute.
