There are so many things in life that we cannot change. I often feel more anxious when I feel stuck in a situation or stuck in a phase of life that is not so fun. When I’m craving a change or wanting something to happen but things do not seem to be falling in to place, I feel very stuck. Being stuck leads to many anxious feelings which can lead to feeling sad, helpless, and frustrated. In order to avoid those stuck feelings, today I’m sharing 5 changes that you can make right now when you’re feeling stuck!
Choose To Be Grateful: Maybe things are not exactly how you want them to be right now. Whenever you feel this way, you can choose to hate everything or you can choose to be grateful. Choosing to be grateful doesn’t mean you have to love everything about your situation. Choosing to be grateful is enjoying what you do have amidst a challenging time.
Choose To Be Happy: Happiness is a choice. Happiness is not always something that will come easily. Some days are very hard to get through. Choose to be happy and you will see a difference in your outlook on life. Next time you’re feeling low, choose to smile and you may feel a little happier overall.
Choose to Love Yourself: Rather than pick yourself apart in the mirror, think about all of the things that your body can do for you. You won’t get thinner by bashing yourself, you won’t get stronger by ridiculing your small muscles, and you won’t improve your self esteem with self-hate.
Choose To Treat Yourself Daily: This does not have to be anything expensive! Treat yourself to 5 minutes alone after a busy day. Treat yourself to a 30 minute workout session with no interruptions. I really believe that small daily treats/acts of self-love will make all the difference in our happiness and outlook on life.
Choose To Enjoy Your Passion: As an adult it gets harder to enjoy your passions when they are not necessarily part of your career. I think if you enjoy things that you are passionate about, it can help when you’re not exactly where you want to be in life. For me, I love to write so this blog is a space for me to do that on a daily basis. Whatever it is that you love, carve out some time each month to do it!
I hope that these 5 changes will help anyone out there feeling stuck in their current situation. I also try to remember that nothing is permanent and most things in life end up working themselves out in the end! I will continue to enjoy the little things in life, and enjoy this moment right now!
