Are you a victim of sadness?
Let's face it -- we all get sad from time to time; that is part of living but that does not mean we must live in that state for a prolonged period of time. Sadness is felt when things are not going our way and we feel unhappy or discontent. Maybe a past experience or memory triggers sadness and sets you spinning. In today's fast-paced society, it is easy to fall often into the sadness trap because we never seem to have sufficient time to get everything done and that in itself diminishes our pleasant state of mind.
Many seem to get it wrong they blame their state of mind
mindon others hoping that a partner or friend will help them restore their well-being. Let's get it right- you are the one who has the power to banish sadness and replace it with happy thoughts. It actually is up to you to build your life around the feelings and energy that you wish to experience. When you are in mental, physical and emotional balance, you are in alignment. I know that we all have past experiences that sometimes create anxiety or anger but I encourage you not to fall into that trap. As I have said before, we cannot change the past but we certainly can cultivate a state of mindfulness where we control our thoughts.
The best way to switch gears and wash away your sad feelings is to replace then with feelings of happiness some moment or experience that brought a smile to your face or started you thinking about a pleasant situation. That is the best cure! Another great suggestion is to develop mindful emotional resilience that enables you to bounce back from unpleasant situations or circumstances by consciously being aware of your state of mind and body. My most important message is about changing your mood quickly so as to build a solid foundation that exhilarates your health instead of sending you into a state of despair. Let's face it we have all been there but we certainly do not need to linger there. You would better serve your emotional, physical and mental state of mind by learning the best techniques that will help you to quickly shift gears and move forward in a good and positive manner.
