Ways To Stay Upbeat. Here’s how to keep Happiness shining in your life
What do you do when you are already two months into the summer, and not much sunshine has been part of the journey? What about these grey, rainy days where you long for the sun and nature has decided otherwise?
Do you feel frustrated? Do you let the weather rule your mood? What can you do to feel better at moments like these?
Here are 3 simple ways to stay upbeat and shift your energy level, not only on a rainy day but also in your daily life when things don’t go the way you want.
- Change your perception.
“If you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.” Dr. Wayne Dyer
You can choose to change your perception and see the rain as a blessing for the beautiful greens. Rain is part of the process for sustaining life and growth. It is also good for our hair, and there is nothing wrong with taking a good walk in the rain, with or without an umbrella to sniff up the best oxygen there is. Do not let the rain keep you from moving and watching nature doing its normal thing with or without the sunshine. To perceive the storm or crisis in your life differently, look at the positive side of what this situation brings you and go with the flow.
- See the opportunity.
“Every adversity, every failure, every heartache carries with it the seed of an equal or greater benefit.” Napoleon Hill
If nature needs these darker days to prepare for hot summer moments to come, why not taking that opportunity to take some time inside with a game of cards or treat yourself with a good old siesta. Live in the now and enjoy what is. Try to change your energy by putting on some relaxing music, doing some breathing exercises and meditation. Light a few candles and make it the best inside afternoon you have ever had. This might be just what you needed to get an insight or an idea to work with in the near future. Grab the opportunity instead of mourning about the obstacle.
- Trust that this situation will pass.
“You can’t calm the storm, so stop trying. What you can do is calm yourself. The storm will pass.” Timber Hawkeye
If there is one thing we know for sure, it is that after rain comes sunshine, always. That is how it goes in nature and that is how it works in life. Dark days do not last. No situation in life stays the same. Get calm, get still, go within. Plan already what you can do tomorrow or the day after, when the rain stops and the sun beats the clouds. Surely, you will appreciate that blue sky again, more than before the rain. Maybe that is why we need that down-feeling, to stop taking life’s essentials for granted. Send out some gratitude and expect to see the sun again soon! I promise you it is on its way!
Cheers, to the miracle of nature and the miracle of you!
