3 keys to survive tough times
We all get to a point of wanting to give up. In the end, we are just emotional begins. Even when we feel like we are at the top of the world, life likes to remind us how vulnerable we can be.
Life at some point can be both ruthless and unpredictable. Someday you feel great and the very next day you could be battling a severe sickness. The challenging times come in many sizes and flavors, whether it be monetary, health or relationship, we all get to face them eventually.
Read on and I hope that my 3 keys to survive tough times will help you on your journey.
Take some time off
Unless is a health issue, try to avoid your problems for a few days and limit activities that increase your level of stress and anxiety. If your work is a major contributor to your worries, request time off or find another job. You need to understand that your mental and physical health is more important than anything else.
It is good to take some time off and sleep on your problems for a couple of days. But once you hit the reset button, you need to start finding answers, solutions, and alternatives for your problems.
Ask others for help
During times of crisis, the best thing that you can do is to seek the help of others. It is important that you surround yourself with positive people and follow their advice. These moments could also be used to get rid of negative people from your life, for good. What is the difference between negative and positive people? Positive people will selflessly try to help you back on your feet while negative people love the idea of having you on their level. What you need least in these moments of crisis is being close to people with a negative attitude toward life.
Another thing that is highly advisable … If you have the financial means, it is best to seek help from professionals. Although, sometimes all we need is to have good people taking care of us.
When you are facing hard-times, do not solely rely on others to find solutions to your problems. Yes, good people can help you a lot, but you need to help yourself even more.
Take time to evaluate all aspects of your life. Your pastimes, friendships, personality, customs, habits, etc. Make a list of the things that you recognize have a negative impact on you and the people you interact with.
You know what is affecting you, now you must create a plan of action to eliminate, improve or replace “that” which is ruining you.
