Have you ever felt overwhelmed, stress and disappointment enveloping you bogging you down to low spirits, unable to think clearly and focus on any matter around you? Fear not because there is still hope. You just need at first a tiny effort to think you are valued and worthy. From that point on, start trying to find infinite worth in yourself and the next step would be to take one more smart move to ventilate yourself. In order to learn more, read on.
Here are three of those smart ways to ventilate yourself:
- Playing a Musical Instrument
Can you play any of the musical instruments out there? If you can, you have the bonus option of the outlet for ventilation.
I myself put my hands from time to time on the musical instrument, a harmonium that I possess which is a smaller version of the piano in our part of the world. It is years and years old and yet when I play it, out comes wondrous and magical music. I know how to play five native songs. Actually I knew more before but now I can recall only five. Five is, however, a good number to play on the instrument one after another.
Playing any instrument shuts you from the world's conflicts, troubles and problems for those few minutes and the music you play helps you relax and soothe your mind as you strive to play more gracefully and magnificently. You have a few minutes of detachment from life and yet it has a comprehensive effect on your mental and physical health. You feel so much at peace that you may like to go for an afternoon nap or a little evening's rest after which you remain calm and serene and deal with all the worldly matters in mature, competent and lively ways. Yes, it is an example of the ventilation process.
- Buying Yourself a Little Reward
From the nearest shop to your home or office wherever you are now, buy yourself a little reward. It does not have to be anything expensive but something you love and can be as simple as a Starbucks coffee or a Vanilla cone ice cream. After you finish having them, naturally burgeoning positive thoughts will start to flow through your mind just because you treated yourself well. Your thoughts will always shift to complete positivity and you will happily go along throughout the day. Others will notice you more and ask, "What's up?" And you can give them one of your mysterious smiles as your response. Got it?
I like to buy myself little rewards as well from time to time when I feel gloomy. So I force myself to dress up, walk down the stairs and go to the nearest shop to buy my favorite Kit Kat chocolate or Cornelli chocolate cone ice cream, whichever my mood craves for and then head back for home. I keep them in the refrigerator, change back to my home clothes, wash up and then gradually and slowly I take bites of my reward, relishing it completely. My gloom passes off and I wonder what I can do next and look for a lovable item on my To Dos' list and do it. So my gloom has already gone, and doing that lovable To Do item brings back my spirit and I begin to thrive at great heights.
- Calling up Somebody You Trust
We all should share our woes with somebody when we can not take it all any longer. The person could be a best friend or anyone you trust. S / he may not be available near about you when you need them badly. But you can always have the option of calling them up. More often than not they will take your call because they are aware that they have a close bond with you and will want to be eager to talk and listen to you. When you do call such trusted friends, you may change your decision and just say hi / hello and chat for a few minutes. Those few minutes are really precious because they are about to shift your mindset towards positivity and right after you hang up, you may not have talked about your woes or complained about anything at all but yet you start to feel good about yourself once again and can go about carrying your duties in a happy and jubilant mood.
I myself suffer from deep depression from time to time, and I have been told to contact our family doctor during those times by phone. After doing this for sometime, for example, complaining and grumbling about life, now when I do feel crossed or overwhelmed due to unfavorable circumstances, I have realized and come to learn that none of that helps; rather calling up my family doctor for sharing positive and good stories of my life gives me an instant boost of energy and vigor and I get along with my day delightfully.
Summing up, those are my three precious tips for ventilating yourself to make yourself feel good. You can choose any or all of them to apply to yourself during your low sentences and bring back the mojo of your life immediately.
