How To Keep A Bright Spirit In The Face Of Adversities

It is easy to keep your spirits bright when life is going along smoothly but then bumps and obstacles are cast throughout our life journey, and we never really know when they may turn up. The question then becomes: How do we keep our spirits bright throughout the different stages of life and not allow the storms to dampen the truth of who we are?. 6ways to keep your spirit bright in the face of adversities.

Turn the Page

Each day is a gift and a chance to start fresh. If yesterday was heavy, give yourself permission to turn the page. Start today with a new intention, one that will prompt you to focus on the landscape before you. When we give ourselves the gift of new perspective, hidden gems have a way of appearing and reminding us of the joy that lives within us.

Fuel Your Machine Properly

Your body is your most valuable asset — treat it well. Much like we wouldn’t put soap in the gas tank of our car, we shouldn’t be consuming food that is overly processed and filled with chemicals and junk. We humans are meant to be eating whole foods that are alive, instead of the packaged junk and processed food we are constantly inundated with. When we take control and feed our bodies with nutritious food and clean water, it makes a world of difference in how we feel. When we feel good in our bodies, it is so much easier to maintain a bright disposition.

Get Enough Sleep

Sleep deprivation is dreadful. It wasn’t until I became a mother that I realized what a precious commodity a good night’s sleep truly is. Getting enough pillow time has a way of making us feel more human. Sleep is such an amazing gift to recharge and start to see things with fresh eyes. According to sleepfoundation.org, “sleep is a vital indicator of overall health and well-being.”

Get into the Driver’s Seat

When life feels dull or uninspiring, it’s the perfect time to remind ourselves that we can get back into the driver’s seat of our lives. Sometimes we need the reminder that we are in ultimate control of how we choose to react to experiences before us and how we move forward. Sure sometimes the steps may take time — that is okay. There is something really empowering in remembering that we are in the driver’s seat of our life, and if we want to feel more joy, we can start moving towards that happier destination at our own pace.

Check in With Your Trusted Peeps

We are social beings and are meant to be connecting with others. The special people in our lives who want to see us shine bright, are the ones we can go to when we need a little lift. There is nothing like a good belly laugh with a friend or a warm embrace to brighten our mood. Receiving the gift of being really seen, or seeing someone else for who they are, has a way of making us come alive.

Back to Basics

If life feels complicated and heavy, see what changes when you put your attention on the simplest things. When I feel overwhelmed with too much to do, I love to lace up my shoes and get outside for a run. There is something about nature and fresh air that melts my stress away. When things get stressful to the point of feeling it in our bodies, I believe it is a strong indicator we need to simplify. Getting back to basics can include things like: getting outside, having real conversations with real people, enjoying a meal with a loved one or doing an activity you know brings you joy. The basic things in life always seem to be right under our nose, it is just a matter of putting our focus there.
