In part 1 of ”The Art of Resilience in a Complicated World – Skin Spa NYC Spas” we explored the importance of identifying what truly makes you happy by examining your internal motivation. Through this process, we begin to see the parts of our lives which are “non-negotiable,” and where we can clear some activities and simplify our lives. In part two, Skin Spa NYC Spas takes a look at the value of nourishing positive thinking and taking time out of our schedule to renew.
Nourish positive thinking
Whether or not you are a proponent of the law of attraction, it’s hard to deny the importance of a positive attitude. Study after study has shown that viewing the glass as “half-full” rather than “half-empty” not only improves your quality of life, but also enhances performance. At Skin Spa NYC Spas, we believe that this is why the art of visualization has become a powerful tool in everything from sports to business and the performing arts. Simply envisioning success serves to boost achievement levels. By this same method, envisioning peacefulness and happiness can increase these same feelings within your life.
Along with visualization, other tools to nurture positive thinking include affirmations, gratitude journals and surrounding yourself with positive-minded people. What’s more, applying these skills will help to promote a resilient attitude sure to help in dealing with whatever life throws your way.
Take time out to renew
One of the most effective analogies of stress management involves a glass of water.Holding it out for a minute is no problem at all.Hold it out for an hour, and you’ll have an aching arm.But hold that same glass of water out all day and you’ll need an ambulance.The same holds true for even small burdens.We all have challenges in our lives.However, carrying them around 24/7 can make even the smallest ones insurmountable.Also, the fatigue arising from carrying your other burdens all of the time will make it more difficult to deal with new challenges as they arise.
With this in mind, it is important to make a conscious effort to set aside your worries.This can be done by “leaving work at work,” practicing meditation, enjoying a relaxing treatment from Skin Spa NYC Spas or simply participating in an enthralling activity that will keep your mind focused on something else. This small break from your concerns can leave you feeling refreshed and often contribute to finding new solutions to your problems that you hadn’t thought of before.
