How to journal

These are some tips that will help you get started: (pick what suits you best)

  • Try to write every day: make time for it, spare 10-20 minutes a day to focus on writing.
  • Make it easy: Keep a pen and paper handy at all times, if you prefer digital journaling, keep your notes app always available.
  • Write or draw whatever feels right: Your journal, your rules. Nothing is write or wrong when expressing your thoughts or emotions.

We all hit rock bottom at some point of our lives. Burnouts are more and more common, progressive depression and chrocnic fatigue are sadly became a normal routine.

But it’s never too late to take a break. Here’s 10 signs your body is telling you it needs a break.

1- You get sick more often

Due to high levels of stress, lack of sleep, and lack of energy your immune system gets weakened. That way your chances of getting sick will increase too.

2- Stressing about the past more than the future or the present

Your past is “haunting” you more than normal, a past trauma, a broken friendship, self-doubt and past action reflection.

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.

Breathing exercise.

This is really obvious, but for me, breathing exercises were my go-to-deal-with-anxiety-attack. It’s so simple:

Breathe in, Hold for 5 seconds, release. Repeat until you feel calm.

Try to meditate on the spot

Try mindfulness meditate on the spot, focus on being intensely aware of what you’re sensing and feeling in the moment, without interpretation or judgment.

Go to your Happy Place.

Everyone has a happy place, something you feel a good happy feeling in. Something that makes you feel at ease and relaxed.

Focus on an object

Try to focus on something stable and fix around you in the room.

Close your eyes

Some people get stimulated by triggers around them. Closing your eyes will help you reduce the stimuli.

Those are some of my favorite techniques, feel free to share some of yours too in the comments!
