Being happy has been neglected over the years and only now that importance of wellbeing has just became trending recently. It was indeed a different culture before because people are forced to work more than the required and even absorb all the stress to achieve their goals. But, if you notice, having this kind of culture is actually unhealthy and it greatly affects your mental illness. Luckily, there has been improvements to get away from this culture. Nowadays, people already give importance to their selves thus, their happiness become their priority to stay healthy physically and mentally.
You can actually apply different approaches to achieve the wellbeing you deserve. Pain has different sources and one of the biggest contributor is the feeling of being abused. There are many forms of abuses. In fact, you may be abused by people surrounding whether they are just strangers, your friends, family, co-workers and even yourself. The reason for this is that you don’t actually think about your self that’s why you allowed abuse. You may begin to avoid abuses if you learn to say “no” to others and even yourself if it will not cause any good to your overall being. It should not be a NO all the time because saying YES sometimes will also help in your recovery from abuses.
Another way is for each of us to learn to be alone when we are already in our adulthood. If you are alone, you can do a self-reflection. By being alone, you get to have more time for yourself to reflect on your life thus, you start to relax and your mind can think properly especially on resolving your life issues. This will also help you realize that happiness can be achieved if it is your choice to achieve it.
Since you already have your alone time, why not spend it in a way that will make you feel better physically, right? In fact, if you stay away from social media and you avoid answering work-related calls or emails, you will feel better. If you continuously check on your social media accounts or emails, these will just add up to your stress especially if you read something that disappoints you. The best that you can do is to spend more time with yourself through spas, eating your favorite meals or just lie down your bed and watch movies. You can do whatever you want to do just make sure that your chosen activities will help in achieving your wellbeing and not abusing yourself.
You can also try meditation since this is a popular technique to achieve a refreshed mind and body.
