SUCCESS AND HAPPINESS CHARACTERISTICS #1 : SELF-LOVE

Love of one’s self really is a foundational piece to success and happiness.

Am I a Grown Up and What Do I Want to do When I am a Grown Up?

I don’t know if we ever grow up. We often feel a different age than our biological age. It’s good to feel younger than your biological age, for the most part. This question, ‘What do I want to do when I grow up?’, can come up at different times in your life. It often comes up at life transitions- when you graduate from high school, or graduate from college, birth of children, loss of a job, change in the economy,a midlife crisis or other transitions. These transitions are all opportunities to ask yourself the question, ‘What do I want to do when I grow up?’ To answer this question, do not look at where you can get a job to make money, unless you need to earn money now. This is a temporary solution. Instead, look for what lights you up or excites you. Look at areas in your life when you are so interested in what you are doing, you really lose track of time. Notice what makes you smile when you talk. To help you on this process, there are some things you can do.

Cure For Boredom, What Can I Do? Part One

The best cure for boredom is to get interested in yourself, your life, your surrounding, and anything and everything.

Is Sleeping Stress Relief?

Sleeping can be a time that the body and mind rejuvenates itself, or it can be an escape from the stress in your life. Notice, do you feel wide awake and energized for the day when you wake up ? or do you still feel tired even after nine to ten hours of sleep, then sleeping is not stress relief. It’s a sign of something else. It could be a form of depression or an illness of some sort or a sleep disorder. I recommend you see a doctor for a check up and talk about your sleeping.

How Can I Communicate? Anger Management Skills Part Five

I have written on previous posts on anger management techniques and I have addressed different topics. I addressed understanding the cues and triggers of anger, the positives and the negative to anger, a secret to anger(one of them being expectations), and I talked about calming down techniques.

It is best at this time to use ‘ I-statements’.
