It's time to start believing in yourself.

When You're Down And No One's Around Here Are 3 Things To Do For Yourself

Let's face it, everybody feels this way at least once in their life. It feels like no matter where you turn there's something new to conquer. There's always someone outshining you and you feel like you're never good enough. There's a time when we just wake up in the morning and don't even want to get out of bed.

This can be worse depending on the person and the severity of how much of an occurrence this is but it doesn't mean it's any less real because you cant physically see the problem.

The problem here is that a person can be fine when there are people around to distract them, but as soon as their alone with their thoughts they turn self-destructive. Instead of dealing with their pain, depressing thoughts, or struggles they choose to mask the pain and cover it with a band-aid.


So you need to learn to deal with it. Here are some suggestions on how you can manage your feelings and your life.

1. Talk it out

Now, I know that not everybody wants to go see a shrink or someone they don't feel comfortable talking to. Well, find someone in your life that you can trust and talk to. Find a best friend that you can just spend 30 minutes without any judgment. Find the person who is gonna give you advice on how to help, someone who actually cares about you.

2. Sweat it out

You don't have to do an intense workout or anything but what if you just did a yoga class? Go for a jog with a friend? Maybe learn something new at the gym that you've always been afraid to try? Anything that will get you and your body moving, releasing endorphins, which promote healing. Get that adrenaline going and get all of the anger/stress that you have going on in your life. It is so healthy. It is so good for you, and it can not only take your mind off of what's going on but you can also process what problems you have in your life.

3. Be creative

So sports isn't your thing, that's totally fine. Maybe a creative outlet would be good for you. Go take a drawing class, learn how to paint, try oils or pastels (doodling totally does count by the way). Anything that's going to get some of your feelings out. Pen to paper, paintbrush to canvas or camera to picture. Go wild, feel free. You don't need to show anybody anything, this can be for yourself, but it's going to help you.

These are just a couple of ideas to create healthy habits for when you are down and there's no one around to distract you. Instead of sitting in bed all day, force yourself to get up and get ready even if you have nowhere to be. Take a chance, invest in yourself but most of all, be you and will yourself to want to get through each day.

The Holidays are a time for being with friends and family and celebrating the birth of Christ, but sometimes we forget to acknowledge the other religions and what they celebrate.
