And today we continue moving on with the subject of dealing with losses.
So far I duscussed two of the most important, in my opinioin, first steps to how I manage difficult periods and bad runs. Keep in mind those are steps you controll and those are never out of your reach. Thinking this is something we cannot control is just an excuse we put in our heads to feel better.
Firts step was accepting losses as part of the game. You can read my thoughts on the matter in the blog post dated around 1 month ago.
Second step is stop the negative thoughts from entering your head. Really important but sometimes difficult, gets easier in time. My last post was about that topic.
Today is the next step. Those will be small things I do that help me with the process of dealing with losses.
One of the things I usually do to boost both my mental and physical health is sport.
Sport and being physically active really improves the speed of mental recovery. You are just stronger. It is interesting how those are connected but I found in time that when I am in good shape and I got a lot more energy I never feel devastated, unhappy or frustrated for more than a few seconds/minutes. So that's a simple advice. Sport is good also for your mental health not only for the physical part.
As this post will revolve around body energy another part on the subject as we all know is how we eat. In few words eat fresh foot. More vegetables, salads, food with liquids and you will suddenly feel the difference. I still eat the occasional burgers, pastas and stuff but when you add vegetables it is perfectly fine.
To that, drink a lot of liquids, preferably not alcohol ones but water. Easy to do but we never do it enough. You have to force yourself at the beginning by having a bottle near you all the time, again water one. In few weeks you will notice how your body just wants this water and you will drink it not forcibly but willingly.
It is just my experience.
Simple things amount to great difference.
Add a few improvements to what you do about your physical health and you will feel it in all areas of life.
Add to all this relaxing and having a good time and here is your magical formula for never feeling bad about losses. I will cover this in my next post.
Thanks and hope this helps.
