3 Ways to finish the year strong

We’re coming to the end of the year which is a really hard time for me to stay motivated i can admit.

It’s easy to just say β€œforget it” and throw away all my routines and daily practices out the window.

I tell myself I’ll start over in January and before I know it it’s been weeks since I did the productive things i had lined up.

The problem with this is that when January 1st finally comes around I’m not very well prepared to put in order all of my new goals and resolutions because i’m still recovering from a shitty year i had.

I do like to use the end of the year to set myself up for my new goals and I think it’s actually the perfect time of year to refocus so I’m prepared to start off the new year on the right foot. I just know i have to be consistent, dedicated, and prepared.

I hope this article gives you some ideas to help you finish the end of the year strong the right way.

 

 

GO OVER GOALS (REVIEW)

It’s times to go ahead and review your goals and new year resolutions you set at the beginning of this year.

Have you notices that most of the time we have gotten to the end of the year and we already went invisible on our goals we set. This is the perfect time to restart all your goals again.

Good question to ask yourself.

What could you do to make this year a success? How will you make this year a success without holding back?

Set up some kind of standards between now and the end of the year. You could commit by staying true & dedicated to your words, so you can enter the new year with a positive & strong driven mindset.

BREAK IT DOWN TO THE (T!)

Brainstorm. Brainstorming is definitely important. I like to overlook my goals before i even take action. I have to be clear on what my vision is and what i actually want in life.

Starting with the vision and then setting goals that will help me create the life that I want to live has really helped me stay focused on my goals throughout the year.

 

CREATE A VISION

Honestly i can admit, I use to set irrelevant goals. I always made a list of goals that i knew 100% i wasn’t really into or wasn’t going to take action on.

I never was the type to fantasize & have big dreams about what i really wanted in life and what my life would actually look like in the future. I felt like my goals were uninspiring and that was all I could really actually strive for at that time.

So of course i stopped settling goals and i finally decided to “create a vision” for my life and things started to get better.

Although at the time i was very emotional and always believed that i’ll never achieve anything in life, because of my bad experiences growing up, I still made it happen.

How I Got Through a Bad Month

Hello,

I’m so relief that i am feeling like myself again after a pretty rough timeΒ  these past couple months. I can’t tell you how thankful I am to feel productive and inspired again.

I’m not 100% the happiest but I definitely feel more like myself again. I will be hosting my podcast on here soon sharing my experiences, and also other things i go through as well. My podcast also will be sharing coping tips for anxiety, and motivating others to transform there lives back to them normal selves.

But let me tell you that healing is real, and healing is very much possible.

When i’m not feeling like myself of course my mind will try to make me feel other ways. Like my mind will make me feel that i will never be okay, and that i will never feel 100% better.Β 

 

The real truth is that life comes in different ways.

If you are struggling right now i want you to know that i truly believe that there are better days that are coming your way.Β 

Here are a few things I did to help me get through life when it felt really hard to get through.

 

 

 

FOCUSING ON THE POSITIVE

When you feel like shit, it can be really easy to focus on anything negative. You will think about everything that’s not going right in your life and not working how you think it should. The true fact is, we are surrounded around grace & blessings every moment & time of the day. Yes it can be hard but i honestly believe in practicing gratefulness throughout the day can make a big difference in how you feel honestly. Being grateful get us further then we can possibly think.

 

NO MORE BEING HARD ON MYSELF

I give myself a hard time too frequently and it’s okay, because it’s going to happen at a point in your life. But you have to take action and keep moving forward instead of using the excuse that your struggling and just beating yourself up about it. Let it go, and release all that tension you have against yourself.

 

LISTENING TO MOTIVATIONAL SPEAKERS

Before i even started working on my own, I actually have a selected few podcast i quite listen to. honestly, just recently my way of thinking was terrible :(. I did my best to balance out all of my negative thoughts by listening to positive messages and hearing other people stories that i can relate to. This helped me,Β  i’m sure it will definitely help you.

 

Mostly I just wanted to tell you that when you feel like you’re not going to feel better that feeling is just temporary and not the truth.

You can overcome anything.

You canΒ heal.

You can revamp.

Have a great day everyone….

Bad habits that make your anxiety worse

Wow! I can truly say that dealing with anxiety comes with a lot. Especially panic attacks, I pretty much watched my life crumble more and more because i suffered from this problems quite often.

THINGS THAT MAKE YOUR ANXIETY WORSE

What cause me to have panic attacks the most.

  • Being home alone
  • Elevators
  • Hot stores
  • Being to closed in by people

So i had to try my best to avoid all this for a very long time. But it’s hard you know? Mostly everything that is listed is something that’s going to always be there or happen. My anxiety became severe when i started doing security, because for the simple fact i had to use elevators and we had no stair access. I was too embarrassed to tell others, so I had to deal with this on daily basis :(.

I still have anxiety today, it’s just not as bad, and i am able to cope with it. These are the main things that had a big impact on my life. Imagine just going through this horrific situation, and then other stuff far as relationships, family issues, and more on the side.

If you’re struggling with anxiety, I highly recommend making new changes in your lifestyle. It will definitely be worth it.

Here are a few things i know that will definitely increase your anxiety:

 

CAFFEINE

Let me be all the way honest with you, I am a big coffee addict.

Like i love drinking coffee, I fucking love it so much that i never wanted to admit that i was addicted lol. Deep down, I knew that coffee could possibly make my anxiety worse, but i didn’t want to believe it.Β 

I use to drink coffee in the am and at night on a daily basis. At might? Yes honey at night!

So i end up cutting it out on my routine for a little. I told myself “NO CAFFEINE” for the rest of the month, and when i start back i will only drink it once a day. So now i am back drinking coffee, “Once a day.” If i start getting the jitters, and i start feeling anxious then i will began to slow day again.Β 

NOT BEING “PREPARED”

Be honest, when you aren’t prepared it becomes a problem. You start throwing stuff all over the place, always misplacing something, never on time, and just all the way a mess.

Say if you have an interview at 12 pm, and you are barely getting ready at 11 pm, you can’t find your interview shoes, and then you can’t find your blouse. So now you are flipping out, everything is annoying you, and your just ready to give up on everything!Β 

This is me by the way lol. I am very disorganized sadly. Sometimes you become that way depending on the people you surround yourself with or you just automatically that way. Never being prepared has cause me so much stress, because i’m always late to something, and I feel like I mess up so much. But now i am always working on it and trying to not let it get to me at much because it makes my anxiety worse.Β 

I started to use a planner and making to-do list to help me maintain a more prepared lifestyle.

Overall these small things helped with my mental health.

 

NEGATIVE & WHAT IF THINKING

This is definitely one of my biggest problems. Everyday i’m always saying “what if” in my head. Why? I can’t explain but it’s mad annoying and became very stressful. If you suffer from anxiety i’m sure “what if” is a saying you definitely can relate to. It’s basically when imagining all of the bad things and everything that could go wrong right then and there, or later.Β 

“What if this happens” “What if i lose?” “What if i…….”

This type of thinking, took a lot of energy in my daily life. I remember just giving up sometimes. I always thought of the worst case scenarios sadly. Like throughout my day it was definitely a headache, I even started to get bad migraines.Β 

Now taking control of what i’m thinking has been the most helpful thing to do. I will bring myself back into present, and turn them thoughts into “I CAN”Β  more often, and it’s a blessing i even got to that point.

 

PUTTING TO MUCH OWN YOUR PLATE

Sometimes it’s okay to say no. We try to commit ourselves to things we know we have no business doing. Saying yes to certain things can tie you down and make you feel obligated when in reality, your not.

Not saying no has left me burnt out, and under so much pressure. I overall i was just miserable at times because i knew deep down No is what i wanted to say from the start. Now i focus more and what i need to be done, and what is more important.Β 

So when i’m done putting me first, then i’ll see if i have enough time to actually help someone with what they asked me. Once you are cleared with knowing to say no you can really be more persistent at saying no so you don’t get overwhelmed again.
