How to Rebound from Negativity

12162015 Rebound

I admit that not every day you are going to feel chipper and positive. Here at http://positivitychange.com/ we totally expect that and have a guide towards bouncing back from the doldrums and the pits.

Get out and breathe the fresh air

When you’re in the dumps, it can feel like the walls are caging in. Don’t stay in that helpless state. Go outside and breathe the fresh air. Just doing this simple activity, reinvigorates you because you are no longer confined to a particular space. Oftentimes, when we feel trapped, the energy is bad. Getting outside releases the energy.

Think of something that you have done right

You are NOT the screw-up that you think you are. We as humans can be very hard on ourselves. We tolerate our wins but falsely accept our failures. Snap out of this because you have done far more right than wrong. You can use this week for an example. Surely, something has gone right for you. Don’t internalize bad feelings.

Plan your happiness comeback

Okay so you are feeling down right now. That’s natural and even healthy that you are owning that feeling right now. The key phrase is right now. Don’t stay there. Plan your comeback. Write down things that make you happy and how you can plan baby steps towards getting back to happy. Use this plan whenever you feel yourself sliding back into helplessness and negativity.
