Another way to describe the blues is feeling down, sad or bad about something.
The thing is, if you stay in such a state too long, it may be a challenge to find your way out.
What you want to do is catch yourself before heading further in that direction.
Here are three ways you can do that:
- Ask yourself, “Do I like the way this is making me feel?” If you don’t, this is the time to do something about it. Don’t wait. Awareness is key. Pay close attention to what’s going on within. You’re the first to know when something is off.
- Find something better to think about and focus on. Remember, you tend to attract more of what you’re thinking about and focusing on. So, if you don’t like the results of what you’re getting, change your focus; hopefully on something that’s good, healthy, helpful, and/or positive.
- Make a list of three things you’re grateful for, along with the reason why. When your thoughts are on things you are appreciative of and have gratitude for, you tend to get similar thoughts and feelings that match.
True, there may be times when you’re not feeling your best. The thing is, you don’t want to sit there too long; unless of course, you like the way you’re feeling. But if you don’t, these three things will certainly help you move in a different direction. Nothing changes unless something changes.
