Well-known psychologist shared proven tips to help cope with psychological fatigue and find mental balance.
Fear for today and misunderstanding of the future drive us into those corners of our minds that we have never been to before. I confess: I have repeatedly thought that the deceased is a person freed from physical suffering, grief, panic. However, this is a momentary weakness. Next you need to find a goal! It is impossible to hold on without it.
The main purpose of my existence today is to protect children and then to help everyone who can be useful to me. If you’re broken, you can’t do that. And that’s how you start clinging to life.
My tips for you:
1. Create your own virtual reality. Add to your life with your thoughts everything that you lack the most right now. Lie in the arms of a loved one who is not around, make yourself a fancy bath with foam or whatever. Try to feel pleasure, not pain. In this way we form a version of another life: everything that exists virtually becomes a reality more easily.
2. Remember the good of the past. Take a walk in your favorite park, see photos from holidays and travels. This is your foundation. If it used to be good, it may be good again.
3. Draw your condition. As you wish and as you can (pencil, pen, stick on the sand). Draw as much until you feel relieved.
4. Catch the moment! Watch the branch by the window as if you were making a movie about it. Let the time freeze for a minute or five minutes. It is very important to hang on to one object in one unit of time and see how it lives now.
