Happy and sad moment alternate in our lives andrepparttar problem arises when we realize we have no or very little control over them. A 100% happy life is utopist, but there are ways to train yourself to react better to problems and difficulties. Letís have a look at some ofrepparttar 150962 most frequently used methods of cheering yourself up, no matter how bigrepparttar 150963 problems might seem.

Try to surround yourself with cute things, like children or animals. You will be instantly ďcontaminatedĒ with their joy and innocence and, at least temporarily, a huge weight will be lifted from your shoulders. Children are also great teachers, even though they donít realize it. Take their example, for a moment, and enjoy every single thing life has to offer you, like kicking a ball, throwing stones inrepparttar 150964 water or savoring a candy bar.

It never hurts to offer yourself a reward every now and then. After a long day struggling with problems your mind and body need some time off. Do one of your favorite things: watch TV all evening without moving a muscle, take a long hot bath, play a computer game or go out and dance. Fun moments will remind you of how life should be and this will motivate you even more to do your best and solve all problems as fast as possible, so that you can go back to fully enjoying life.

Gather some courage and face whatever is worrying you. The worst idea is to lock yourself in and to start feeling sorry for yourself.

Ever had one of those days, when things just spin out of control no matter what you do? You have? Welcome torepparttar club of "life on rotation". Because this is what happens when vicious circle takes over your life.

This, however, does not have to be. Personally and professionally, I have found 5 strategies to be most effective in stopping yourself from going into a catatonic maze in times of vicious circle. These strategies are interrelated, and when applied can help you keep your sanity.

1. Shift your focus by letting go ofrepparttar 150899 problem and not trying to fix things. There are times when situations are best left alone temporarily. Your wanting to control a volatile or calamitous situation when you are overwhelmed only makes things worse. The best approach is to turn your attention to other matters and relax.

Getting yourself to relax may be difficult at first when a problem is gnawing at you. When this happens, take a deep breath, listen to your intuition and move away fromrepparttar 150900 scene of tension. Take charge and do what is good for you. Be creative and take a break!

2. Choose your thoughts carefully. It is only natural that when things get out of control your thinking gets impaired. Still, it is important to watch your thoughts and emotions. For these are powerful energy which can constrict or open your path to finding new solutions, depending on how you use them.

I have great admiration for people who are able to remain calm and collected inrepparttar 150901 heat of recurring catastrophes. These people often radiate a special glow which seems to single them out. I once asked a medical assistant of a colleague, how she was always able to remain poised inrepparttar 150902 midst of allrepparttar 150903 drama that went on 24/7 at work. She smiled at me and replied that when she was young her mother always reminded her that she could chooserepparttar 150904 way she wanted to see things, especially in difficult times. She said that knowledge was what got her through primary school. Becauserepparttar 150905 kids were often cruel to her, since she never new her father. So instead of thinking herself depraved, she chose to think of herself as being privileged to haverepparttar 150906 special love and attention of her mother all to herself!

3. Change and raise your vibration by focusing on what gives you joy. When you choose thoughts that support you and your condition,repparttar 150907 built up pressure dissipates and you are more at ease. This makes it easier to raise your inner vibration from this position.
