6 ways to STOP YOUR PITY PARTY

We all have them from time to time. You know… you feel sorry for yourself, you ask questions like why me? Or state that life is unfair. We throw a pity party and usually there is only one person in the room – (YOU).  Life becomes depressing pretty quick.
Well there are ways to stop the self pity and potentially pull your finger out
  1. Shift your focus on the positive stuff – for too long we spend our time thinking about all the bad stuff – try shifting your focus to the good stuff. Even if it is only minor – it is a good start!
  2. Write it down – In order to stop your stinking thinking. You need to be conscious of it. Write down all the crap that’s going in your head. Write down what you don’t want. By doing this, it will allow you to write down what you DO want – you need to do that too
  3. Get off social media – As much as we love it, it can also be detrimental to our health. Instead ditch the phone and get back into nature. You will feel a lot better for it.
  4. TALK it out – Someone out there cares about you. But they aren’t mind readers – Communicate to someone – reaching out for help is a good thing.
  5. Block it and get busy – After chatting it out – it is time to stop talking about it and rationalizing over it more. Instead block it and start talking about the good things in life – Tell me what you can do, not what you can do. Show me what you have, not what you don’t have. You get the point! Things will change for the better.
  6. Tunes – That’s right – stop listening to sad, depressing music to fuel your pity party. Instead chuck on something uplifting that will make you get up and feel good. – James brown – I feel good – is a good one to start with.
