Having experienced difficulties in carrying out everyday tasks, the feeling of losing support and the ability to influence something can remain in our lives for a long time. Although this is a normal reaction of the body to today’s events, the experts have collected useful techniques that will help you find support in simple things. We publish the three most appropriate of them.
The first useful practice will be simple planning. Plans will have a time stamp like “today, a few days, maybe a few weeks.”
Grab a notebook and pen and jot down a list of timed tasks you can complete today. These should be simple, short, clear tasks that can be completed throughout the day. When you complete a task, be sure to cross it off as done. Write down the time you actually completed it next to it.
“Body control” technique.
Depending on the mood, circumstances, events, situations, not only the emotional state changes, but also bodily manifestations. A person who is overwhelmed by oppressive thoughts and difficult experiences has a corresponding facial expression and posture. Sometimes it may even seem that such a person is carrying a heavy burden on his shoulders.
Bodily reactions are closely related to what is “in our hearts”, but it is a two-way process. To improve your emotional state, sometimes it is enough to work on your appearance, posture, facial expressions. Try experimenting with different looks, hairstyles, and makeup. Reincarnate and observe how such external studies affect your inner state.
“Order in everything” technique.
Antoine de Saint-Exupéry wrote: “Woke up in the morning – clean your planet. Otherwise it will be overgrown with baobabs.” This is where the rather simple, but no less influential, technique of bringing order to thoughts by organizing the environment comes from. An additional plus of this technique is physical activity, which undoubtedly helps to get rid of destructive emotions.
