Encouraging Yourself






“Encouraging words are hands that pool others from the despair of life.”
Bangambiki Habyarimana


There are times when we may feel dissatisfied because we do not feel appreciated by others. We all long to be valued by others. But if our happiness depends on the encouragement of others, we may at times find ourselves being needlessly discouraged…..The solution is to encourage yourself.

Be proud of yourself. Whether it is because of a small accomplishment or just life in general, you have to believe in yourself. Working on your self esteem is vital.

Try being your own best friend. Talk to yourself like you would to a friend who needed motivation. Say things like “I know it’s hard but you can do it,” or, “By this time tomorrow, it will be all done.”

Exercise. Take a walk outside or on your treadmill, ride a bike, do yoga. Choose a exercise class, or practice yoga at home with music of your choice. Or you can jog, dance, or whatever feels wonderful to your body. Just 30 a day will help your metabolism, which in turn helps your mood.

Eat good food. Add fresh foods and whole grain foods; go organic on some things if you would like to.

Be kind to yourself…. Remember everywhere you go you have a good friend with you.

“Everything is within your power and your power is within you.”
