how to celebrate small success and why it’s important?

All our lives, we’re wired to wait for big things to be happy about, a big announcement, big achievement are worth celebrating. But the process leading us to get that big announcement or achieve that big goal is important and there’s a rollercoaster of small successes that are worth celebrating that we ignore. (cute gifs are included)

Speaking of which, most of the time we get attached to big events happen that we get so sad while waiting to accomplish our goals, which delays our goal from happening.

So here’s how you can celebrate small successes and adopt a more celebratory approach to life.

1- Treat yourself

Go on that fancy dinner with your friends or alone too, buy something delicious or even a gift to congratulate yourself.

2- Take a day off

Spend a well-deserved, earned me day, celebrating and taking care of yourself.

3- Write your feelings

Writing your feelings about a happy event will help rewire your brain when things get bad one day.

4- Blast some celebrating music and have a dance party

Music is the body’s harmony, dance to the rhythm and forget the world around you, just celebrate yourself and your current reason for extreme happiness and joy. 

5- Dress up for no reason

Dress up, for you alone at home, maybe cook a delicious dinner or go out have a fancy dinner with yourself

6- Go to dinner with your friends

Celebrating with your friends is a good way to share your happiness with.

7- Journal your small successful steps.

This way when you accomplish your goal, you’d have written proof of every little step you’ve gone through that lead you to your big accomplishment.

How to Social media detox.

Social media is the most popular addicting “activity” that people always check, post, like, stalk, and stay active on. But social media is a real energy drainer and consumer, so detoxing from all sorts of social media platforms, now and then is a must. But how?

Detoxing from social media can be done in so many ways that I can’t even count or note. But it is preferable to go directly with the process and cut yourself completely from using your social media accounts.

So as a start, disconnect your accounts. (if you have a business account, keep it but limit your use of it).

If you feel like you will be more comfortable, delete the applications… ALL OF THEM.

Keep yourself busy in the day with things that are more important and can Keep you off thinking about social media: click here.

Get yourself some hobbies to keep your mind peaceful: aromatherapy, yoga, or meditation. Every single person on this earth has his therapy. It is time to discover yours!

When you feel ready to come back, give yourself a “following detoxification.”

 A “following detoxification” is to unfollow all users that may be affecting your mental health and well-being. It is recommended to have a quality following than quantity.

 Follow motivational pages, positive pages. Unfollow all the bad vibes, from people to friends, to any user you don’t like their provided content. You need to do this step to feel better coming back to this world.

And that’s how social media detox is done. Every time you feel down, tired, and low energy and you need some free time for soul searching and self-reflecting, social media detox is the best option.

Important lifestyle addition: Self-talk

When you are alone or phasing out, you practice a lot of self-talk, analyzing speeches, pep-talks, the bad ones specifically. So in this article, we will see how healthy self-talk is for your mental health and well-being.

Let us see what self-talk means:

Self-talk is the combination of words and sentences we tend to say to ourselves. While thinking about something, analyzing our current situation, or what you are about to do in the future. Self-Talk tends to be negative because, as I said before, we tend to be hard on ourselves due to society.

The importance of Self-Talk:

Only you can motivate you. Self-talk reflects your self-image. How you truly feel about yourself, how you see yourself, and what you believe in yourself. People’s opinions and comments can influence your self-talk.

The brain is like a machine. Whatever data is entering its system, it will adapt to work thoughtfully. So an example of negative self-talk: I am not good enough, I am not beautiful enough, I’m not worthy… ” your brain will automatically think nothing but these things about you. You will always feel drained, tired, unmotivated, and “unworthy”!

But on the other hand, if your self-talk is positive: I’m lucky, talented, worthy, The whole universe will switch in your favor because you will see the universe from another perspective. You will feel more energetic, happy, motivated, and getting your blessings one after the other!

Positive self-talk is essential for one’s survival. It doesn’t come easy but, once it shifts from the negative, this is where you will get going in life. Choosing the right words when describing yourself always comes in handy and, your life will automatically change for the better. Your performance will boost so will your well-being. Your healthy mind will blow you away with its creativity and the potential that it will give you in return.

Practicing positive self-talk is essential for you to live a healthy life with a boosted well-being. Listening to good music, surrounding yourself with mentors and positive friends helps with your self-talk and your self-image.
