My life feels like a test I didn’t study for
Start the day with positive thoughts
How we start the day can have a decisive impact on it. Negative news on TV, worries and brooding: this is not how it works with positive thinking. The result is only a harmful carousel of thoughts and frustration paralysis. Instead, establish a carefree and positive morning routine. Start your day with good thoughts, confidence, and great expectations. You will see: The more positive you think of yourself and the day, the more it becomes true. Every moment counts!
The happiness researcher Shawn Achor comes to the conclusion: It is not the intelligence quotient (IQ) that is decisive for happiness and success. More important – a whopping 75 percent – are optimism and the ability to deal with stress. He calls this positive mindset the “luck advantage”. In short, thinking positively is like doping for the brain. The benefits increase. The successes too.
Ask yourself good mood questions
If nothing helps, try a few feel-good questions to ask yourself. For example, by asking yourself the last time you were happy, had a fit of laughter, were happy and beaming. Make yourself aware of these beautiful moments again. You will automatically feel better and happier. Because thoughts of beautiful things leave a warm feeling in us.
A considerable list may already have accumulated. Those who see their to-dos in front of their eyes may feel particularly strong pressure because the mountain appears immense. Exercise is a good remedy for stress. Which type depends on your options – jogging may not be possible during the lunch break, but a walk may be feasible. Exerting yourself physically properly in sport has two advantages: it relieves stress, and it releases happiness hormones.
