Being happy has been neglected over the years and only now that importance of wellbeing has just became trending recently. It has been the culture in the past to embrace work and stress everyday in order to survive. But, if you notice, having this kind of culture is actually unhealthy and it greatly affects your mental illness. Luckily, there has been improvements to get away from this culture. Today, we have this mindset of prioritizing ourselves and fulfill what we love to achieve the happiness that we deserve.
You can actually apply different approaches to achieve the wellbeing you deserve. It is a fact that being abused will bring pain to your life and you will have difficulties recovering from it. You can be abused in so many forms. In fact, you may be abused by people surrounding whether they are just strangers, your friends, family, co-workers and even yourself. The reason for this is that you don’t actually think about your self that’s why you allowed abuse. Learning to say “no” is one way to help yourself from being abused by others and by your own body, too. But you should always weigh things before you say NO because saying YES might be better for you.
Another way is for each of us to learn to be alone when we are already in our adulthood. Being alone means your chance to do self-reflection. By being alone, you get to have more time for yourself to reflect on your life thus, you start to relax and your mind can think properly especially on resolving your life issues. This will also help you realize that happiness can be achieved if it is your choice to achieve it.
By having your alone time, you already think of activities that will contribute to achieving your wellbeing such as self-care regiments. Social media is actually one of the major sources of depression and abuses thus, staying away is very important and even answering emails that are work-related. If you don’t stop from these things, you eventually become more stressed and even depressed by just reading from social media or emails. What you need to do is to prepare yourself your comfort food meals and spend time relaxing by means of a massage or by just watching your favorite movies. You can do whatever you want to do just make sure that your chosen activities will help in achieving your wellbeing and not abusing yourself.
You may also want to try meditation because it is proven to be healthy and effective in terms of wellbeing and holistic healing.
