So, today, I thought I would write you something a little bit different. I haven’t had the best couple of weeks with a lot of stress and a lot going on in my head. I haven’t really been able to ‘switch off’ and I just have not felt myself, but I am feeling heaps better and a lot more positive, so I thought I would give you some simple things that you can do to cheer yourself up and be a little bit happier!
Step One: Work out what is bringing you down or not making you feel content and, no matter how scary it is, do something about it.
Step Two: Book in time to see your friends. They are the best medicine and if you’re anything like me, you’ll feel a million times better afterwards.
Step Three: Cancel everything and spend time by yourself – Read your book, bake some cookies, make a new play list on iTunes. Sometimes it’s the little things. I realise that this contradicts Step 2, but you’ll know when you just need to chill out on your own.
Step Four: Don’t let people steal your good mood. There’s a lot of people in this world with a lot of issues. Don’t let the little comments or gestures get you down. It’s their problem, not yours.
Step Five: Have faith in yourself! No matter who tells you that it isn’t a good idea or not to go down a certain route, only you can make your own decisions. Think about what you really want and do it.
Step Six: Take the leap! Say what you’re thinking of saying! Finally go where you keep saying you want to go. Be brave and go for it!
Step Seven: Set yourself a life motto and stick by it. As cheesy as this sounds, it really will help you to be happier and make better decisions! Choose wisely though!
Step Eight: Surround yourself with honest, good people. You need people that are going to tell you the truth and treat you right. If they aren’t, it’s better to cut that negativity out of your life.
Step Nine: Don’t be so hard on yourself. For example, if you’re trying to be good and somehow eat a massive piece of cake and a hot chocolate, don’t stress. Just make up for it at the gym, or have a light dinner.
Step Ten: Don’t be scared to laugh! Make time to be silly, enjoy your days and meet new people! As sad as it sounds, I can’t remember the last time I belly laughed, but I’m still working on that bit.
I hope this has helped and you can relate to some of these things. They are things that everyone can do and remember, so hopefully they will help one of you! I hope they do anyway!
Peace and love, Polly May xx
